Variety is the Spice of Life

Hello everyone! Hope your summer is going great for you!  I am longing for the cool days of fall.  It has been a warm summer in the valley and it really makes you very lethargic.  Everyday day, every week, my healthier journey becomes easier to do.  In the past I would be very bored and would have given up by now.  It reminds me of a song that we sing in church.....I've been on this journey a long time, and I'm not tired yet!  I just keep plugging along and try my best everyday.  I love the below cartoon I came across.  It is so true!  I know that I am going to slip a time two, but I don't want to go back to where I began.  In years past I would totally give up.  I am NOT going to climb the same hill twice! No more!

When eating healthier I have learned that variety is key.  As the title says, Variety is the Spice of Life.  Some people can eat the same ole food everyday, but I am trying to introduce new foods so that I will not get bored and reach for unhealthy choices.  

This is a new snack or breakfast that I have tried.
Ezekiel Bread, Natural Peanut Butter, & Rasberry
It is actually very good and when having protein, it helps to stay satisfied longer.

I know this is crazy, but I am not a vegetable eater.  There is only certain ones that I will eat.  I don't really care for tomatoes, but I make myself eat them.  Cucumber is my new like.  Here I made a cucumber sandwich.  I am really trying to incorporate more veggies into my meals.  It has turkey, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese.  It was pretty good snack. 

It really helps to have veggies cut up and ready to go.  Here are different colored peppers ready for my breakfast omelets.  Aren't they pretty?

This is just a few things that I have been eating lately! I will share some other things soon!
Hope everyone has a healthy and wonderful week!!
