Are you eating what is good for you? Not &lsquogood food&rsquo, but good food for YOU?
Personally, this took me a LONG time to learn. And by long, I mean eight long years as a vegetarian. Since I have become light years better at what I consider to be complicated in a busy urban working world. But, I am not perfect, and I do fall off the wagon - salad instead of soup when it is twenty degrees out, pastry for breakfast, pasta instead of a steak.
With all the commotion around us, at work and at home, on the sidewalk and in our own brain, it is even harder to take the time to stop, listen to what your body is telling you, pinpoint from that what your body needs, and then feed it just that. And then ultimately it is even harder to be honest with yourself about what that may be -your brain may not like it.
As a result, we often end up feeding our bodies what we are staring at or what is convenient, what someone or something else suggested we should have, rather than what we sincerely and honestly need as a living organism in that moment to be healthy, happy, and strong.
Eat with INTEGRITY to SUSTAIN your body, mind, and soul.

Sometimes your body asks you to go back to basics. Today mine is calling for steamed broccoli (bagillion vitamins and nutrients), some organic grilled chicken (basic animal protein for strength), and a sweet potato cake (more nutrients & fiber) with a side of homemade balsamic vinaigrette. All made in under 12 minutes.
Looks oddly like what my mother would make us as kids - growing, healthy, balanced, strong kids - just like the adult I want to be.

EAT DRINK and BE MERRY. Don&rsquot think about all the things that consume your brain in front of large meals (fat, calories, salt, gluten, carbs, blah blah blaaahhhhh) and JUST ENJOY. Period the end. It is one day - well maybe a day plus dayssss of leftovers in my case.
JUST BE (THANKFUL).

The SKINNY on CHAMPAGNE
There is a reason why you always see models running around with champagne and only champagne&hellip.. at on average 90calories a glass and only 1g of carbs, it is one of the most carb friendly alcoholic beverages for your body. So if you are out celebrating some amazing news like I was last night, or just celebrating life and summer, opt for the bubbly instead of the beer, and find that model inside you.
