If you have it, You’ll Eat It



This is what my fridge looks like- how about yours? It has always been my experience that when I have junk food in the house, I will eat it. No matter how disciplined I think I am, the junk food will always win. It is always my goal (whether I am eating paleo or not) to buy healthy food, with occasional treats.  I want treats to be special. I don’t want to ultimately deprive myself of them, but eating them every day causes the excitement to fade. 

Our bodies run better on nutrient dense foods. Why? The nutrient dense food has better quality for the quantity. Look for foods that contain vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats. These foods have a lot of nutrients but relatively few calories. High nutrient foods usually have fiber, protein and/or water which helps us feel full faster, and we don’t have to overly consume it as we would junk food. 

SO out with the Junk Food, in with the Whole Foods (Not referring to the grocery store, unless that’s how you roll).
