Making the Change

So appropriate from Dr. Laura 

Now that you have identified the one change you are going to begin making. what are one to three practical steps you can begin using to implement this change?

Choosing one thing to change in your diet is only the first step. You then need to actually make this change. For that, you need a game plan. Just saying, I need to make a change, does not count, those are only words. You need actionable steps to help you make the change and stick to your plan.

So, let's say your goal is to cut down on your sugar intake.
Three steps you can take:

  1. Purge your pantry of sugary foods. Get them out! If it is not in your house, you cannot eat it. Restock with healthy foods, nuts, seeds, dark chocolate, dried fruit, jerky.
  2. When you stop for gas, do not go in and buy the sugary drinks and foods. Have some water, tea, coffee and snacks from above in your car with you. Prepare. Set yourself up for success.
  3. Add in sweet veggies, root vegetables, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, some in season fruit and honey along with other natural sweeteners. 
There you go, three steps to take to help eliminate sugar from your diet. 
What three steps are you going to implement to help you reach your nutrition goal?

Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God bless,
