This is my favorite time of year, the sun is shining, days are longer and everything is in full swing. It is also when I look forward to going out for a beautiful dinner on the water and kicking back. Living my healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy a good dinner or dessert. I follow the 80/20 rule, which means that 80% of the time I follow a clean, healthy regimen but sometimes my body has cravings… this is where that 20% comes in. I don’t believe in neglecting yourself a slice of cake, a summer cocktail or your favorite meal as long as you return back to your healthy habits after. Eating out can be tricky sometimes; everything looks so yummy that we forget that it might be high in calories. I have composed a little cheat sheet to help you get through the tough choices on those fancy menus.
Ever wonder what the big deal is with Organic foods?
Some people hear the word organic and think expensive, but making healthy choices doesn’t need to break the bank. We all know that in order to eat a healthy nutritional diet we need to consume more fruits and vegetable, but some of these foods may be causing more harm then good. Imagine trying to eat healthy and learning that some of the fruits and vegetables that you are consuming are UNHEALTHY!
