A healthier us

Okay, so part of adopting a healthier lifestyle at home right now is serving honest to goodness healthy food. I myself, am taking a little more time than the rest of my family in getting rid of meat, salt, etc. from our diet. I know that I should take this seriously since aside from the health side of it, I actually am losing weight! When I stepped on the scale over a week ago, to my delight, I am back to my pre-marriage weight. I couldn’t believe my eyes, and even asked if the scale was broken. lol. If only I could get over the taste part (I like my food very savory, which always means oil, salt and other spices) cold turkey. But I am getting there slowly so bear with me.

In the meantime, I have adopted some steps for our family. I normally give veggie sandwiches to the husband often paired with freshly squeezed lemon juice or a glass of fresh, non-fat milk I still don’t eat this myself.

At this I love: juicing and blending! It is very refreshing and one can almost feel the detoxification of the body afterwards. It doesn’t take so much sacrificing on my part because I actually enjoy taking it. So far, I have tried on mixing and matching available fruits at home. And I have yet to graduate doing this to vegetables.
