I made the most scrumptious chef salad for lunch today. Romaine lettuce, boiled egg, turkey bacon, red onions and shredded carrot. Yes, that's carrot, not cheddar cheese! I know everything is beddar with cheddar, but when you pile on the ingredients and dressing, who can actually taste the cheese anyway? I figure if it looks like cheese, it must be as good, right? I didn't miss it. I did think I was going to miss the pile of ranch or bleu cheese I wanted to throw on there though. But alas, I chose an alternative and guess what? The tangy balsamic was surprisingly better! It's all about choices people. When you choose to make a healthy eating decision, it is so much more rewarding and let's be honest, it usually does taste better.
What eating choices do you struggle with? For me, I have to deliberately and consciously make an effort to eat healthy: every meal, every snack, every time I eat. It's living life one meal at a time and battling with choices until I can take it day by day.
