Eat Your Fruits & Veggies—You’ll Feel Great!

I’ve completed my first week now of “conscious eating.” I have very deliberately paid attention to my body as I have drastically reduced my intake of sugar, fat, and processed foods. (I know this seems a little ironic, being posted after the squash casserole recipe.)

Each day I’ve tried to eat high fiber/protein for breakfast. Lunch has been either a tossed green salad and fruit or black bean/whole wheat burrito and fruit.

Guess what? I have noticed more energy throughout the afternoon. A greater satiation that lasted throughout the evening.

And as I suspected, stopping the sugar and fat helped REDUCE the cravings for sugar and fat. Eating sugar and fat brings on a greater desire for more sugar and fat.

Oh, and I lost about 1.5 lbs. this week. 🙂
