Find Foods You LOVE

One question I get asked a lot is, "how do you stay motivated?" I started thinking about this and to be honest there are several things that help me stay motivated. There is one thing in particular I truly believe is the key to a healthier lifestyle. Finding healthy foods that you love to eat is probably the most important thing you can do for yourself. If you don’t love the foods you are eating, you will not be as motivated to live a healthier lifestyle. Some of you might be thinking that there isn’t a single healthy food that you love. Well I’m here to tell you that there 100% is, you just have to find it! It takes a little soul searchingfood tastinggarbage throwing action to figure out what you like and don’t like. Most of us do this at restaurants, right? We try something new and either hate it or love it. Finding healthy foods you like will be trial and error. If you aren’t a “veggie person”, I guarantee you have not tried every vegetable at the grocery store ;) The same goes for the “fruit haters”. Try a fruit you never have and who knows you may find one that you can't get enough of. Mine is blueberries, no doubt! I find myself during the day saying “I can’t wait to make roasted brussels sprouts for dinner”, “I can’t wait to eat my greek yogurt and blueberries for snack”, “I can't wait to eat peanut butter and honey on my waffle for breakfast!” Eating healthy can be so delicious that you crave some of these foods every single day. I just discovered Kashi blueberry waffles at the store last week and OMG I ate them for breakfast every. single. day. I seriously could not get enough. I put about 1 TBSP of peanut butter on one waffle and top with a little honey. Besides the fact that these waffles are loaded with whole grains and fiber, each one is only 70 calories, and with toppings mine came out to about 190. It tastes like a waffle from IHOP equal to 700 calories not 70. There are so many healthy foods that I literally crave and it keeps me motivated because I know I'm making small changes that add up to big impacts. I say this a lot because every little thing you do counts whether you think it does or not! 

Have a great week, y'all!
