Day 18! I am feeling so much better about all of this. Thank God!
The past 8 months, I have increased the healthy fat in my diet. FYI, I had a physical last week and blood work. My numbers are better than they were last year! My total cholesterol is about the same. My HDL and LDL ratio is below average risk! I am proud to say my Vitamin D level is 60!
What I am doing works for me and I think it will work for you as well. More about that later on. Launching an exciting new program.
I wanted to write about portion control and my new love of wide mouth BALL jars! Increasing the fat in your diet also increases the calories if you are not careful. Yes, calories do count! I have started to divide my food into the jars. It is perfect when you want to grab a quick snack or a meal for that matter.
This morning, I made coconut banana pumpkin puree and sent it with Thomas for a healthy snack. I divided the rest into perfect portion control jars. It just makes me happy to open up my refrigerator to see all of those jars filled with nutritious delicious food!
Exciting news !
I know facing 30 days of no gluten, sugar and alcohol can be overwhelming and seems impossible. I have created a 7 day program with my friend Chef Ivone Ventura of Healthy Sage. She is a graduate of Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC. We are having a kick off at my house on February 25th at 10:30 AM. The cost of the program is $35. Reply to this post if you would like more info. Tons of support, guidance, tips, and recipes included. Call a friend and do it together!
Not Local? It will be an online program so you can still join in! #morefunwithfriends
