Cinco De Mayo Tips & a Healthy Gauc Recipe
True story! I don’t know about you but the last thing I want to be told is in order to be healthy or in order to live a healthy lifestyle I can no longer eat the things I love. Been there. Done that. It was never sustainable for me. It was frustrating for me. And I found myself having so many moments of “weakness” where I would want to eat all the things I couldn’t eat & then felt like such a failure. It wasn’t a healthy cycle at all. Being able to learn how to enjoy my favorite foods in a healthy way is what has worked for me! No more guilt around food. No more depriving myself. No more binging. It’s pretty freeing. So if you’re feeling frustrated, deprived, guilty or stuck in a rut with your nutrition that’s probably a good sign that it’s time for you to pivot.
