Is what became my focus after my husband was diagnosed with Early-On-Set Alzheimer's. Our ShortCut Cook television came to a halt, and the kitchen doors abruptly closed. My focus was now home based.
Food is essential. Think about a holiday, celebration of life, marriage, baby showers, etc.
There's more on that plate than you can eat. SO, how important is healthy food to our well being?
ESSENTIAL - Hey, it's not always easy to make the right choice. I just had a craving for chocolate, yum...I found a substitute that would satisfy my sweet tooth. When you have a craving for sweets, substitute it with Ice cream (just kidding). Best to keep snack foods in the store and not in your home. When the urge to splurge hits, go for salted almonds, saltine crackers dosed in cream cheese, peanut butter, hard-boiled eggs, Greek olives, fried cheese--recipe on my website-Shortcutcook.com. Even all natural sliced cooked meats can suffice.
Of course, salads are always a good option. Keep your intake of carbs low and protein high.
Unless you do a hard work-out daily, you can eat the carbs. Hey, it may be worth it to go to the gym.
Anyway, stay well, eat well.
