How To Make Healthy Eating Work For You


Heather: Hey guys! This is Heather from healthyeatingstartshere.com. So today I am hanging out with my chives outside
because it’s the gorgeous day. It’s beautiful out here and I got to take advantage of it
while it lasts because the next couple of days is supposed to be rainy. Anyway, what I wanted to talk to you guys
about today is motivation because what I find is a lot of people come to me and they know
what they should be doing for healthy eating and yet they have trouble actually putting
it into practice. A lot of the time, that is the hardest part. I am being distracted
by butterflies and bugs that are zipping around past me here which is awesome. It’s fun being
outside. Anyway. Okay. So motivation. The thing that
I have found works for me and works for a lot of other people is when you get things
to be a routine, and you make things into habits, then you don’t have to think about
them so much. So a trick that I find works for making meals
on a regular basis is to come up with, say, three recipes. They don’t have to be like
complicated recipes. What I mean is three dishes that you can make on a regular basis,
that you enjoy, that you know to have all the ingredients on hand, and that you can
just throw together on a regular basis and you know that you are going to like it, enjoy
it, and all that stuff. So if you come up with, say, three different
dinners that you like. So be it soup, maybe some stem veggies with grains, and maybe,
what else, some lettuce wraps, say. Okay. So you come up with those three dishes that
you can make on a regular basis. Come up with three different lunches maybe. Personally,
I can eat the same breakfast every single day but Phil likes to have more variety. So
it’s up to you what you do there but just kind of put some basic meals. And then in
order to learn more and find more things that you enjoy, have a day where you experiment
with some meals and I usually do that on Sundays because I take a day off and then I feel like
I can spend the time learning a new recipe, trying out a new techniques something like
that. Then it helps keep me motivated and keeps things interesting for the rest of the
week when I go back to my staple meals and what not. Another thing I have been thinking about lately
that I just wanted to share with you guys is I have been trying to shift my thinking
a little bit from always thinking about finishing things to thinking about enjoying doing them
and enjoying the process and I have been finding that difficult but when I am able to do it,
it makes things a lot more fun. So that’s it from me today and I hope you
guys find something fun to make for yourselves. Now there are tons of recipes on my site that
you can use to inspire you, get you creating and like I said, try to find a few meals that
you can make on a regular basis then you can get in the routine and get yourself going
on healthy eating. So have fun with it. That’s the main thing.
Alright, see you later guys.
