My Response to Healthier Eating

Saturday, April 06, 2013

So much great information! Thanks to my daughter, I'm learning to eat healthy. I have learned to enjoy spinach. Even this smoothie - apple, spinach, greek yogurt and flavored water. It's green, but yummy and satisfies my sweet tooth. After giving up sugar because of diabetes, spinach tastes sweet to me. I believe small, steady changes are most helpful. I started (before I learned I had diabetes) by giving up regular soda. It was difficult and I craved it. After three days, the craving started to ease up and eventually it became easy to say "No" to regular soda. I have however starting drinking some diet soda, but not daily. I do believe it is unhealthy, but it's a struggle to give up ALL unhealthy things.

    Small steady changes are the way to get there!! Seems to work the best!! I used to drink a lot of soda and candy was my downfall but once I got my BSs under control, my cravings for them seem to disappear. SO very glad to hear that you are finding healthy eating so much more enjoyable. Everything tastes so much better, doesn't it? ANd I bet you feel so much better too!! Keep up the great job!!
