In our PEERtrainer weight loss/mind training program (click here to bookmark it), we delve into the diet fusion kitchen and what kinds of foods really work well together.
We ask everyone the following question: what kinds of fruits and vegetables do you like? When you picture the word vegetable, do you think of the high school cafeteria version of smushed, tasteless green beans? Or do you think of freshly topped tomatoes with basil and garlic? How about sliced mango with a few blueberries sprinkled on top? Stuffed peppers with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and cilantro (click here for the BEST stuffed pepper recipe!!)
Today I'd like you to make a list of every fruit and vegetable you can think of (or click here for a list of vegetables to start you off) and circle the ones you like. (Here is a list of culinary fruits from Wikipedia, yum, yum yum!) Then I want you to post it on your refrigerator. I don't care if you have a sub zero beautiful see thru one: then make your list with a Bauhaus look, no excuses!
Every single time you go into the kitchen, get ready to grocery shop you will see this list of options and suggestions of delicious, high nutrient foods that will give you energy and confidence that you are making the best choices for you.
Suddenly, eating fruits and vegetables becomes as easy and effortless but most importantly, becomes something that you love and crave.
Jackie... another great suggestion. Thank you for helping all of us reach our goals!
