Moving towards a healthier lifestyle is something that I've been working on for over a year now. I've come to terms with the fact that as I'm getting older, my body is...changing. I've been fortunate to have a high metabolism, but that doesn't necessarily mean 'healthy'. Your body could look decent on the outside, but inside it could be a mess. I wasn't aware of what I was putting in to my body, or how I was overeating. Once I made a change in my meals, I noticed a change in my overall feeling. Drinking more water, eating more vegetables, and not stuffing myself has done wonders for my body. Something as simple as that, really can make a difference.
Lately, I've been putting avocado on everything! It's one of those vegetables (or fruits?) that can instantly add that much needed flavor to any dish. Turkey burgers, jalapeno poppers, veggie wraps, you name it. They're also good for you as they are a source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins.
This has been my go-to meal for lunch at work:
- Spicy Hummus
- Spicy Guacamole
- Strips of red, orange, and yellow peppers
- Shredded Cheese
Add all to a wheat wrap, and enjoy!
