Eat Your Way Right Through the Holidays – the plan
I was reading the paper yesterday and came across an article by Dr. Oz’s. Now I know how much some of you love Dr. Oz so I figured I’d give him a shout out.
Anyway in the article he refers to the “Five Food Felons”
- Added Sugars
- Added Syrups
- Most Saturated Fat
- All Trans-fats
- Grains that are not 100% whole grain
The list got me to thinking about a crucial part of our nutrition plan.
The actual planning!
Because there are some foods (like in the list above) you need to plan to avoid. Added sugars for example. You have to read the label and see what’s in there, which is another good reason to purchase as much “label free” whole foods as possible.
Well if we are going to “Eat Our Way RIGHT Through The Holidays” we are going to have to implement the other PPW…
Planning + Preparation = Winning.
We’ve talked about it before. You can’t go into the grocery store and wing it. From the moment you walk through the door you are being set up to buy more, and the choices ain’t all good.
To that end you need to have a meal plan so you can have a shopping List”.
My challenge to you, next time you go shopping buy only items on this list.
Should really simplify the process, and you will be feeding your body what it needs.
Plus you’ll have a head start stocking your kitchen with the foods you planned to eat. You will be setting yourself for success.
To Your Best Health,
