I saw some really good advice the other day. When someone offers you something not included in your diet, instead of saying I can’t have that, answer them with I don’t eat that. (for my daughter that is corn products, for me that includes foods laden with tons or refined sugars)
The difference in those two words is immense. Can’t implies you are not allowed, you are prohibited, it is against the rules. Don’t implies it is my choice and desire to nurture myself with this decision. A simple, yet profound difference.
So, once you decide you don’t want something as a snack, what are some healthy choices that will not knock you off your lead lap to regaining/maintaining the health you desire.
Please enjoy this list of “free” produce snack ideas. I gathered this information from the book, Why Do I Feel This Way? – Understanding Your Body…Discover Your Solutions ~Gaber, RHN & Day, RDC. These colleagues of mine have spent a lifetime using nutrition to maintain and regain health.
