I try to follow the 80-20 rule...eating healthy at least 80% of the time. I eat 3 meals a day and 2 snacks. I try to keep calories between 1200-1500. I eat lots of protein, veggies, fruit, and try not to eat too many carbs. I also heard fat doesn't make you fat sugar makes you fat! So, I have been reading labels. I will work on portion control, and drinking more good old plain water.
I am always looking for good and easy and cheap healthy recipes, and Spark has so many! I have been following this eating plan for over a year so I have most everything I need in my fridge, and I just finished my grocery list for this weekend, and I am shopping this afternoon. My eating is a little different on the days I work. I do need to work on my cooking skills or lack of okay maybe I can cook, but I don't like to cook, lol.
I just cleaned my kitchen the other day, and I bought a new bright red dish drainer. You would be surprised at how that pop of color in something so cheap and simple brightened up my kitchen!
