More is not always better, unless of course we are discussing chocolate, then more is definitely better.
More can also be better concerning flowers.
More is better when we’re talking vegetables, fruits and exercise.
Less is better concerning processed foods, unhealthy fats, sugar, the list goes on.
Remember, whether you are changing your eating habits for weight loss, or medical issues, it takes baby steps to change. Maybe you finally realized that the way you have been eating for the past how many years isn’t the best for your health, for any reason, it takes baby steps, a little at a time to change for the long-term.
You didn’t get in this condition overnight and things won’t get better and the pounds won’t drop off overnight. It takes time. But start those baby steps by making a few small changes. Eat less meat. Make every other night a meatless meal then decrease the red meat till you get where you want to be. I’m not advocating everyone to be a vegetarian but less is definitely better. Make sure the fats you are putting into your mouth are the healthy fats. Allow yourself that sweet treat once a week instead of once a day. Have a salad everyday for lunch loaded with vegetables, instead of a sandwich. Any changes you make towards eating healthier and cleaner can only help your body and you get to reap the benefits.
On a trip recently that took us through Eugene, Oregon we googled gluten-free places to eat. When out and about or traveling it can be a challenge to eat gluten-free. We were fortunate to find Cafe Yumm. It did not disappoint. As a matter of fact we liked it so much my husband ordered seconds, and we went there again on our return trip back home. I believe I was eating this bowl of yumminess before this trip but now it has a name.
With making changes to your lifestyle of eating this is a simple meal that is easy to throw together. I use the yum yum mexi bowl as one of my quick go to meals when I don’t feel like cooking or need something quick. If you keep some rice or quinoa made in the frig or freezer, and a few other ingredients on hand it is simple to whip up this light, yet filling meal.
