We all know January 1 (well really Jan. 2) is the classic target date for eating healthier, hopefully losing some weight, and with some type of exercise you'll actually do as part of the program. It's a new year, a fresh start - if you can think it you can do it.
The program that has the best chance of succeeding is the one that inspires you to make better/healthier food choices in general, to eat fewer total daily calories, and to step away from the sofa and move your body. No, I will not be coming over to make you exercise or to monitor your calorie intake. However, I will gladly point you in the right direction to making the wisest choices when you are planning out your meals.
"50 Best Plants on the Planet" is filled with interesting info and simple recipes to help you navigate the road to a healthier way of eating.
I'm going to be using this book a lot, and will share my favorite recipes with you. The first two separate recipes I'm presenting were really born to be together - Sichuan-Style Tofu with Papaya and Green Onions & Sno Pea Stir-Fry with Radishes and Almonds. These 2 recipes are packed with vitamin C, folate, phytochemicals, fiber, iron, vitamin K, antioxidants, minerals, gorgeous color, and great flavors. Here is a picture of the finished platter, with some jasmine brown rice. Why not celebrate National Book Month by getting your own copy of Melissa's "50 Best Plants on the Planet". (The recipes are on pages 238 and 300.)
P.S. Any help you can give me on getting off the sofa and with calorie reduction will be appreciated.
