I have a “healthy choice” victory to share.

This evening I was ‘browsing’ the fridge, freezer, pantry for something as a snack. I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted and I was just about to go for my daughter’s ‘drumstick’ ice cream cones when I remembered a great quote:

“if you are truly hungry you will eat real food”

I thought about it for a minute and I satisfied my REAL hunger with REAL food–carrot slices, celery and hummus. It was so good! And satisfying! And actually proud of how far I have come.

Now I am not saying I would’ve had a major issue if I had chosen the ice cream. The reason I am proud of my choice is I am beginning to understand the “why” of choosing to eat healthy. I am learning to evaluate if I am bored/tired/stressed or if it is a physical need for food.

Give yourself the power to make these kind of decisions by having good food ready to eat–the carrots and celery were ready to go since I had prepped them for work last night. Take the time to have real food easy to choose–its worth the prep time!

Best wishes for healthy choices!~Janice
