Healthy Diet Changes

Page

This page is dedicated to the changes I make in my diet over time.  Here is where I will document which things I successfully incorporate into my diet as time goes by.  I will of course write blog posts about my plans along the way, but here is where I will document exactly what I have actually changed for at least a month. The details behind the benefits of each change can also be found in blog posts.

The following changes were influenced by the Shred Revolutionary Diet

Ezekiel_Sprouted_Grain_Bread

I have replaced my 100% Whole Wheat Bread with Ezekiel Bread.

I now put this in my daily smoothie. I started with Flaxseed Oil and stuck with this.

It seems simple, but I was not eating enough vegetables each day. So, now I concentrate on eating not only more vegetables, but also many different colors of veggies.

I live in Florida, but was not taking advantage of 100% Juice. I now only drink 100% Juice, no more juice from concentrate.

I eat beans/legumes once or twice a week.

It took me a couple of weeks to learn to cook this correctly, but once I did I realized what a gem it was. I add a little butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon and I am happy.

I drink a cup of lemon water each and every morning before I begin eating, 1 cup water + the juice of 1/2 a lemon.

I have replaced at least one meal a day with a green smoothie.

My ideas:

I drink at least two cups of tea each day. This is especially great at night because it seems to curb my need to eat.

My Grains, Beans & Seeds

Oats, Grains, and Seeds made easy (from left to right), Milled Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds, Semolina, Irish Couscous, Quinoa, Oats, Red Lentils, Pinto Beans, Popcorn. Since this photo, I have replaced the popcorn with kidney beans and put the popcorn in a large container. I put everything in Mason Jars to make them easier to use. I make sure to use something from my jars with every meal.

I eat at least 4 ounces of nuts and seeds every day, thus I am getting omegas, proteins, minerals and more.

    I ended up at your blog by watching a video you did on The Shred Diet. I’m planning on starting it tomorrow. Congrats on how you did on it. You had great results.
    I read that you like tea, and thought I’d tell you if you haven’t tried it yet, to try Good Earth Sweet and Spicy tea bags. I love them….. and one major plus for me is that even though I drink my coffee black, I have always had to sweeten tea, whether it hot tea or iced, I just can’t seem to drink it without a sweetener. But someone had recommended Good Earth Sweet and Spicy and I love it without having to add sweeteners.
