Some of these changes include: eating at least one salad every day, not drinking any more sodas, turkey bacon instead of regular bacon, no more artificial creamers, raw local honey (when possible) instead of different sugars in coffee or teas, switching to some organic options, traditional pasta alternatives, and drinking more coconut water. I am going to try these new food options and see how I feel. I also have been working out more. So far, I am feeling better and have lost some weight.
In this blog post, I am going to share pictures of some of the salads I have made at home or have eaten in restaurants. Hopefully, I can inspire you to get creative when making or ordering your own salads. I mean, what is not to love about salads when they are so good for you?!?!
