Healthy Choices



Admittedly I've fallen off the healthy eating wagon. I have moments and glimmers of good eating but sadly ice cream and other sweets call my name. Cooking has become more of a chore than a joy but I know that I have to make some changes. That is why when I was invited to try Healthy Choice, I was excited. Yes, it is frozen food but with meals that are less than 400 calories and my personal choices are full of protein (I choose the shrimp entries) I figured why not try it? Especially when I learned that in a study done when 10 meals a week were replaced with Healthy Choice options, participants lost an average of 6 pounds over a 30 day period. Sounds good to me! 






And I must admit that after tasting the meals, I am hooked. I really enjoyed the Garlic Herb Shrimp. It was a steam in the carton entree with asparagus, zucchini, shrimp and a light sauce. It was delicious with a light kick. I will certainly be eating it again. And the Shrimp Diablo was also enjoyable. Adding healthy choice for my lunch will be a great idea for me. 


Of course, I am also going to up my vegetable and fruit intake. I usually have a banana in the morning with my breakfast smoothies but I have to eat more fruit. And my body is craving salad. For Mother's Day I had an amazing Kale Salad with a homemade balsamic vinegar and lemon dressing with Mandarin oranges that was delightful! 


I am happy to report that I have been exercising at least 3 times a week for the past couple of weeks and I plan to continue. I am starting a training plan for my half-marathons coming up in the fall so I'm excited to add healthy eating to my program. I will keep you up to speed on how things are going with my exercise and eating, hopefully in a month I'll have lost at least 6 pounds! 


OH, and I almost forgot! With the purchase of specially marked Healthy Choice Meals, a meal will be donated to End Child Hunger. It is simple, you just visit the website and add the code on the box. Healthy Choice making a great choice for myself and helping others at the same time!

I am a fan of low calorie and low fat frozen meals for lunch. Healthy Choice is one of my favorites. You should also try the Lean Cuisines Spa Meals. They are soooo good too!

I'm not a frozen food girl but the picture of the garlic shrimp looks real tasty.

And don't beat yourself up too much about falling off the wagon. It happens to the best of us. We just got to keep trudging ahead.

best,
