Keep It Interesting

We all know that keeping a good diet is paramount in helping us reach our fitness goals.  I’ve found that the best way to really stay committed is to somehow make it interesting.  How do I make it interesting?  Here’s a breakdown of how one might approach this. 

  • Support – We’re surrounded by like minded people who share the same interest in getting fit and eating clean.  Get together with some friends, split the cost and have them join and help you.  See a delicious recipe that looks too complicated or difficult?  Ask someone.  Ask me!  I’ll gladly help you whenever I can.  
  • Inspiration – Did you know Julia Child was paleo?  Absolutely not but one thing is for certain, this woman was passionate about food.  She put her heart and soul into every dish she made.  Find inspiration in foods that YOU think would be delicious to eat.  You can usually modify a recipe to make it more nutritious and healthy.
