One of the most effective tools for losing weight is eating from my vegetable garden. I’ve pushed aside processed food and go “shopping” in my garden for the fresh harvest of the day. My goal is to fill three quarters of my plate with vegetables and one fourth is designated for my lean protein. Fish, chicken, tofu or a nice lean cut of beef!
Eating clean and simple foods that are flavorful keep me full and help me stave off cravings for sugar and other carbs- my weakness. Take a look at one of my meals.
Shirley’s “spa cuisine” includes balsamic-marinated red beets with corn relish, crunchy persian cucumbers, “rocket” arugula, red sweet peppers and chichen breast marinated in non fat yogurt and seasoned with garam masala spices. I grew all the vegetables in my garden and can eat like this every day!
I found an eating formula that works for me, how about you?
