Earlier this year I set some goals for myself, and I’ve become very focused on them! Zone bars have become a snack of choice, especially the toasted coconut bars that are “simple” and clean. Talk about YUM! All the flavor and none of the guilt.
I’ve started drinking more water during my day, and even started trying out some yoga and a cardio barre class! It was different, super tough, but I’m really trying to carve out more time to dedicate to my health. Maybe I’ll eventually hit the gym next week… it’s so overwhelming in there!
Zone sent me some guidelines for smarter swaps and I thought you might like them, too! If you’re not already choosing water as your beverage for each meal, try working towards better choices. Choose flavored water instead of soda, or lose the sweetener in your tea (I know this is HARD for us Southern folks, so try a half and half mix). Regular coffee works better than a latte, too.
It took me many many years to like Avocado (it was actually sushi that pushed me in that direction) but now I love it. Add some tomatoes and I’m all in! Use that instead of mayo, or try some thick greek yogurt as your sour cream. If you start with small dollops, you’ll never notice!
