Creating health in small packages

Welcome back from cruising your kitchen for carbs and sugar and packages of processed foods.  I did discover that my refrigerator is pretty well stocked with great fruits and vegetables, but the pantry is loaded with boxes of pasta.  Every time I try to discard them by donating to our local food pantry, my carb-addicted husband keeps restocking the shelves thinking I have run out.  Obviously I’m not communicating the message very well to him and need to have that conversation again.

How are you doing with this issue?  Clearly if we are going to be successful with our goals we need support from those we live with.

When will you have that conversation to line up your support system?

Speaking of food, there is another smaller – but just as important issue that we need to manage.

It’s SNACKS!  We snack all the time and that adds up too.  So how will you manage your snack attacks so they compliment and don’t conflict.

One of the best ways to stay on track is to create weekly meal plans that account for cravings between meals. Put tasty, convenient pairings—like apples or celery with peanut butter—and healthy snacks such as cherry tomatoes, olives, and pickles on your shopping list to complement your healthy meals.  These small but healthy snack packages will come in very handy when hunger hits.

What are your favorite on-the-go snacks?

Does your kitchen support your health?

What does your kitchen tell you about your health?  Lets explore the story that it is telling you.

But first, how did you do yesterday writing your SMART goal?  Do you feel more empowered? I actually feel very good about just writing it down.  So often I keep my goals in my head swirling around and never actually get to doing something about it.  So congratulations on doing the first and most important step toward ultimate success.

Now it’s time to assess where those temptations are that drive you into the sugar bowl.

First things first—it’s time to dump the unhealthy stuff and stock up on healthy foods. Toss out those prepackaged cookies, crackers, and anything else that has high sugar and/or high sodium content. I’m not in favor of throwing food away, so maybe share these items with your local food pantry.  I realize that is passing unhealthy food on to others, so you will have to wrestle with this ethical dilemma yourself.

Next, stock up on fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean meats.

Below is a helpful shopping list from my colleague Dr. Karen Wolfe to guide you into locating healthy choices when you are shopping.  Be sure to shop the perimeter of the store and stay away from the inner isles which are all processed foods. And ignore that Easter candy isle!

Spring Into Health with Sugar Busters

When Spring starts springing it is time to check in with the health goals you’ve been diligently working on since the start of the New Year.  So how is it going?  I’ve had my own ups and downs, and have decided that it is time to re-group and go forth once more with the ONE BIG ISSUE that most of us have.  SUGAR OVERLOAD.  And why am I initiating this right now?

Because Easter will be here soon and it is a holiday wrapped in SUGAR and the pressure is on to buy-buy-buy and indulge-indulge-indulge and then feel awful-awful-awful afterwards.  So if you are like me, you would like to prepare yourself in advance with tips and tools that will help you thru this challenging time. (Isn’t it sad that the real meaning of Easter has gotten lost in an Easter basket filled with a sugar which is 8 times more addicting than cocaine!)

During the next few days, I’ll be sharing ideas to help you PREPARE to meet this challenge.  Then once Easter passes, you will have one more week to get all the sugar out of the house – and YOU –  and be ready to join our Spring Into Health Sugar Buster Challenge beginning April 24.

Are you ready for this challenge?  OK – I get it.  You have tried and tried before and maybe did not make the progress you had hoped for, but you did make some progress, didn’t you?  So just get going again.  Most smokers try 7 times until they are successful.

You can do this. It’s time to begin living your healthy lifestyle. Make a conscious effort to make the most of every day, and commit to becoming a better version of yourself. Find the energy within you to make every day count.  This is just the PREPARATION phase with our ultimate goal to start moving forward April 24.

Write down one (not two or three) SMART goal you would like to achieve.

S – Simple

M – Measureable

A – Attainable

R – Relevant

T – Timely

Write it on post-it notes and place them several places around the house and at work so you will be reminded often.

Here is mine.

Cook 3 low-glycemic meals 3x per week on Sunday, Wednesday, Friday using the Sanoviv Cookbook.

That’s it for today.  Now just do it!
