“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I love home made granola for breakfast or a snack. I found this recipe a while ago and have made several batches since. I change it each time I make it adding and subtracting from it what I feel like but it is always good and I highly recommend it.

Happy Thursday to you!

As you go about changing your unhealthy eating habits to good ones, do you find yourself eating "the same 'ol thing" day in and day out??

Have you found a healthy food or recipe that you just LOVE and would like to share with others?

Your challenge today is to do one or both of the following:

1) Suggest healthy foods that YOU enjoy. You can state the manufacturer, where to buy the item, how to prepare it, etc.

2) Suggest a healthy recipe. What do you like about it? If you have the nutritional information or URL for the recipe, that is even better.

Let's see if we can come away from this challenge with a few great suggestions so we can "mix up our healthy diet".

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday everyone!
