I cannot believe it is September already! Plus, it feels like fall outside today. This time of year feels like a new beginning. Even though it isn't the start of a new school year for me, the fall still feels like the start of a new year in a way. I indulged quite a bit this last month (the much talked about birthday month) and am ready to get back to my usual healthier eating.
I don't think I strayed too far from my whole foods focused way of eating. The big exception was the amount of sweets. There was lots of cake, candy and cookies. I need to dial it back in because I can feel the difference in my energy levels and digestive system.
So I'm falling back into focusing on vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and fruit. I'm not cutting out desserts/treats altogether, but making it less of a daily occurrence and more of a weekly one. We still have some veggies growing in our backyard (mostly tomatoes - see above) and my family has gifted me with some of the vegetables from their gardens. Plus, some homemade salsa I can't wait to try! I'm going to enjoy the last of this fresh produce and replace those sweets with healthier treats.
Anyone else ready to re-balance their diet?
