Try really hard not to think of these pictures and the progression of them and what these fresh spring rhubarb stalks are heading for . .. .
I couldn't possibly post a picture of what they looked like in the end and find a suitable reason to post that and my big plan towards fitness .. .
with a straight face .. .
(it was a special occasion .. .really it was)
I'm still amazed that people are trying to skip that. I'm not even going to go there with how important this detail is in our goal towards being as healthy as we can be.
I won't bore you with another picture of our oatmeal and yogurt. . .
yada yada yada.
In addition to having my pedometer firmly attached and feeling completely back on track with my goal of 1O,0oo per day we on the farm are adding a tidbit or two towards our health plan.
We are working towards eating whole grains.
Less white flour and white sugar .. .
(except of course for company and special occasions)
So we eat ..
brown rice ..
whole grain bread ..
whole grain tortillas ..
whole wheat pasta .. . (well we are intermittently)
We already have started this idea. Have you watched Dr. Oz at all on Oprah? The week before last he challenged everyone to give up soda. We didn't have to do this since we don't drink soda and felt quite smug about being ahead of the game.
This last week he encouraged everyone to eat a slice of whole grain bread before dinner with a drizzle of olive oil. The reason to do this was (as far as I could gather) to get something into the body that would turn to sugar slowly and thus make us feel full faster.
Well, we haven't done this. . . (smirk) .. . exactly .. .
we've more incorporated whole grains in general... .
My beloved was delighted since I was threatening to lock up the old bread box.
He'd just as soon shrivel up than do that.
So, we're compromising with the old flour bag and trying to go as whole grain as possible.
I think we already are feeling a bit of success with this .. .
How about you? Have you incorporated any healthy eating ideas into your lifestyle?
I'd love to know and also please . . .
tell me you've eaten your breaky.
I'm off for my walk . ..
