Best Life Challenge: The Best of LaToya's Blog
This week, I realized how much attention I pay to my food. While this doesn't mean that I have eating down to a science (not even close), I am hypersensitive to the food around me. I now fully realize how much food is a part of my culture and lifestyle. It requires much more than shifting some things in the food cabinets in order to make a significant change to your diet. Knowing this makes this whole process a little easier. Speaking with nutritionist Janis, I know that this journey of weight loss will continue well beyond the framework of this show. It began here and I'm thankful, but it may take years before I reach my goal weight/size. But when I do reach that goal, a party will definitely commence. :-)
Speaking of food, grocery shopping was the main item on the agenda this week. While sifting through the aisles, I ran across an unfamiliar brand, Amy's. They offer frozen vegetarian meals that taste very good. I have used their products on days when cooking is not an option. Other than that discovery, I try to stay around the perimeter of the store. Apparently, that's where all of the healthy items are. Who knew? Now when I return to the grocery store, I'll know what to do!
Until next time,
