GUEST POST #2 by Wendy Jacob
Thanks Girl! You are amazing!
Q: Why do you choose to eat healthy?
Why I choose to eat healthy is simply the way it makes me feel inside and out.
One thing I have learned, is when there is unhealthy choices around,
I can either give in and have the guilt after.....
or I can be choosy and only have a bite so I
don’t feel like I am missing out on something.
When I take precious time away from my family to go to they gym,
the last thing I want to do is give up the work I did, by eating.
When I am hungry, I crave fresh veggies and fruits. They are so satisfying.
Right now is the best time of the year too…
if you don’t have a garden there are numerous farmers markets Load up!
In the past, when I was stressed, I used to turn to food...now I turn to the gym.
There is so much more happiness in seeing
what you can
than the simple satisfaction of food.
I truly listen to my body and eat when my body tells me it needs food,
which is actually very empowering.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a nice ice cream cone on a hot summer day
like everyone else and I do treat myself to those simple pleasures,
but within moderation.
When people ask what I have done to lose the weight,
I simply say I eat healthy food and stay active daily.
I usually have one day of rest and most of the time that day of includes
a nice walk, simply because my body craves the movement.
I am NOT on a diet nor will I ever be.
This is the way my life is.
I enjoy every minute of it.
I have changed my life for not only myself but for my friends and family as well.
Why do I choose to eat healthy…..
It makes me happy !!!!
Here's one of my favorite recipe's...
So very easy and healthy!

Combine in food processor and mix until smooth.
If it's too runny, place in the freezer until firm.
