Healthy eating revitalizes my lifesty..

Reaching for unhealthy foods is convenient. Punching a button on the vending machine or pulling into a drive thru is certainly far more appealing than cooking halibut or chopping vegetables, especially when I am hungry and hurried.

On the other hand, preparing healthy meals is time consuming, but it is certainly worth the effort.

My health is important to me. It takes precedence over the convenience of 5-minute meals. Convenience always comes at a price. In this case, the price I’m paying is sacrificing nutrition and playing Russian roulette with my health!

Healthy eating revitalizes my life! My good health enables me to play with my children, keep my physique in good shape, cut down on medical expenses, and increase my lifespan.

I would be a fool to pass up all of these benefits in favor of a quick burger or a bar of chocolate! For this reason, I make it a point to cook healthy meals and make conscious decisions when it comes to snacks.

Healthy foods taste better, fresher, and more wholesome than unhealthy foods. Eating healthily also provides me with a sense of empowerment.

Being busy is no longer an excuse. There are millions of individuals that manage to check off every task on their to-do list and still sit down for a wholesome meal three times per day.

My body is a temple and I treat it like my most prized possession!

Today, I change my life one granola bar at a time! I value my well being and consume healthy meals to fortify my body and soul.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I rely on food as an emotional escape from reality?
2. How many calories do I consume each day?
3. Is my calorie consumption on par with my caloric needs?
