Be honest with your food journaling!
  This is the first post of a 7-part blog series called Seven Tips To Balanced Living that shares specifically how our family has improved our living habits, living them out on a daily basis, so we could get our health under control.

Tip #1: Eat What You Normally Eat for a Week BUT Journal It

Eat completely normally. Your goal this week is simply to observe yourself and your normal eating habits. Every time you eat or drink something, write it in a journal. Or, if you are tech savvy and really want some hard data, go to my-calorie-counter.com1 (don't worry it's free) and track your eating habits, drinking habits, and in the notes, write down how you felt after eating the food (energized, happy, tired, bloated, constipated, etc.).

A word of caution, when journaling food, it's tempting to cut out foods you would normally eat, or if you "slip up" you might want to conveniently "forget" to journal it. Remember, this is meant to be a representation of your real daily diet, so don't cheat yourself by being dishonest about where you are.

At the end of the week, make a list of foods that you think make you feel good, and those you think make you feel not so good. Try to keep the foods you are suspicious of out of your diet for a month, then re-introduce one at a time and see if you feel good or bad after eating it. Be honest with yourself. Are you eating more caloric foods than you should? Are you nourishing your body with whole foods, or are you filling it with empty calories and processed food-like substances?

Write your top three goals for health, and post them prominently where you will see them often. For instance:

  1. Lose 10 lbs by Christmas
  2. Be able to walk a mile without getting winded
  3. Feed my family only healthy, whole foods

Keep your goals simple, yet descriptive and keep going no matter what!

Affordable Healthy Grocery Shopping in 30 Minutes

Ever wonder what a healthy grocery list would look like? One of the things many people tell us is that it seems too hard to change shopping habits. They feel eating healthy is harder or costlier. I can tell you shopping for whole, natural foods is less expensive, easier and much faster in the grocery store than dealing with a bunch of processed foods.
