Choose Happy and Live Healthy Simple Food Choices

When Spring time rolls around we often get the bug  to start ‘spring cleaning’.

 

How does this help us Choose Happy and Live Healthy?

New shoes always make me Happy!

For me, Spring’s arrival means opening the windows and ‘blowing the cobwebs’ out. I clean out the closets, putting away the winter woollies and with excitement I start to bring out my summer wardrobe. Maybe it’s time for me to head off to the mall and pick up a few new treats. (It’s always shoes for me!)

I even like to clear out the garage, give the house a good dusting and start work on the garden.

So, I was thinking, why not apply that same enthusiasm to my diet? (and by diet, I mean it in the old-fashioned sense of what I eat, not how to lose weight!):

I don’t need those heavy carbohydrates in my diet just like I don’t need the winter woollies, so I’ll start by putting them away!

Choose Happy and Live Healthy | Jacqueline FairbrassJust as I’m drawn to wearing brighter colors, I can start eating them.

Here’s how I fill up on fresh fruits and vegetables:

I make a rainbow salad as part of one (or two) of my meals each day – red and yellow peppers, or my current favorite – orange peppers. They make me feel that I am eating sunshine. I use dark leafy greens and organic mixes, which include exciting flavors, like a little bitter dandelion and arugula or rocket, and the earthy taste of spinach. I’m also into those little grape or cherry tomatoes, green onions, and radishes. All organic, of course!

And, there are lots of wonderful organic salad dressings on the market, but I do like to make my own with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and herbs.

Choosy Happy and Live Healthy | Jacqueline FairbrassI’m into fresh fruit salad as a delicious and healthful alternative to high-fat desserts. Or have  one for breakfast. This week I am eating a selection of berries, including raspberry, blueberry and strawberries (all high in Vitamin C and anti-oxidants) with Greek yoghurt (good for the intestinal tract and a yummy way to get your calcium) each morning. Sometimes I add a banana too.

I am always careful of saturated fats by avoiding margarine, vegetable shortening, and foods containing palm oil. Instead, I like to use a heart-healthy extra-virgin olive oil. Remember that butter is usually a better choice than margarine – the less processed the food and the more natural the better it is for you.

Live healthy ~ the less processed the food and the more natural the food, the better it is for you.

Some more tips for you to Choose Happy and Live Healthy:

Choose to eat whole grains instead of refined grains. The higher fiber content fills you up, and you will feel fuller. Vary your grain intake, use oats, corn, spelt and quinoa.

And quit going for fast food. Fast food is dead food. To find out more about dead food click here.

If you feel at anytime you would like some help with getting your diet back on track and are looking for someone with a balanced approach to assist you on a personal Wellness Program, just call me for an appointment. I’d love to help you with a Spring Cleaning Program that will lift your spirits, tune up your body and help you lose some of those winter pounds.
