Good morning my nutrition sinners!
Maybe you noticed a little bit of a new look to my blogging casa? I updated my theme and added a new bio in my side bar ============>
Or maybe you didn’t. Either way I spent wayyy to many hours this weekend on sketchy wi-fi updating and it’s STILL a work in progress. #BloggerProbz4Dayzz
While I was resting my screen time weary eyeballs before they melted out of my head, I took a long podcast-fueled walk to get some movement in.
And now it’s Monday and the start of the New Year…officially. Starting New Year’s resolutions on a Friday is just plain silly. I got all my laziness and tortilla chip binges out of the way this weekend to start a new slate!
That means eating more ‘clean’ and moving more every day. In case you’re looking for some alliteration and motivating mantras, here’s a few of my favorites from Pinterest.
One thing that always seems to be part of a healthy habit or way of eating is to get more veggies. We all know it, some of us love them, some loathe them entirely. Either way, they still should be a good portion to every meal.
Especially greens. I mean, have you heard the saying, “Lean, green, cancer-fighting machine?!” …or something like that. These leafy superheros are packed with all you could ever dream of in a vegetable.
-Vitamins & Minerals
-Low in calories
…Besides that whole bitter-tasting thing. We all have our downfalls, right?
That’s where this low carb spinach wrap comes in. It may look green, but I can promise you it doesn’t taste it.
It’s also made with only 5 ingredients, or 6 if you wanna be technical and count water. Paleo-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, or just simple and delicious if you could care less how “free” it is. Let’s go to the stats, shall we?
