Eating five servings a day from this “Clean 15” list reduces your exposure to pesticides by almost 90 percent!
Trying to cut the sugar habit? Tough, yummy one… It’s so helpful though, to not have it in the house. Start by resisting the urge to bring it home, opt for natures candy in fruit. This is the perfect time of year to try new fruits. Freeze grapes & pop in your mouth as a refreshing snack, make smoothies w only fruit, ice and water, add strawberry pieces, kiwi chunks or grapes slices to ice cube trays, freeze and add fruity cubes to flat or sparkling water! Dark chocolate pieces are a healthy choice in moderation, how about a few slivers over a lemon sorbet? You don’t need to completely give up the sweetness you love, just get creative and add true sweets in to your life.
Setting a goal? Write down your intentions and keep them in a visible place, like taped to your bathroom mirror or the dashboard of your car.
To alleviate snack attack guilt, try to understand why you are snacking and what snacks work best for your body. Perhaps you snack because your daily diet is missing nutrition, or because you are eating too little at meals. You might be snacking to soothe jangled nerves when you are emotional, or to entertain yourself when you are bored. Whatever your reason, acknowledge it and start thinking about how to create a life that is nourishing and truly satisfying.
