For me it is difficult to stay healthy and keep eating healthy things. I see the delicious food and just cant help myself but to eat it. Since I have started to exercise more, I am trying to eat healthier. So my diet will be to eat healthier where i can and to eat those things more. Most people do diets where they are practically starving themselves and eating things they would never that are gross. Then when they get their desired weight or goal they stop and go back to their old ways, and they are back to were they started. I want mine to last and to stick with me for the long haul.

I will first start by eating only things I like and enjoy and eat those more. Those will not be the only things I will eat. I have decided that while at home, I will eat the healthier things. Then, when I go out to eat I will be eating almost what my heart desires. If I am going to pay money for it I am going to eat something good. I will try my best to cut out desserts, candy and soda. The occasional reward is ok, but only one in a while.

I will start by going to the grocery store and sticking to mostly healthy foods, fruit, the little vegetables I actually like, and snacks. I am a very picky eater, so for me this is a challenge on its own. I have decided to get bunches of fruit because I love fruit. I have also got the vegetables I actually like.  Now when it comes to salads, I can be picky. I have to slice Romaine lettuce myself to get the lettuce the way I like it. Most places you get a salad from the lettuce is browned and they sometimes serve iceberg lettuce, which to me is gross and it has no nutritional value its like water. Next I got the dressing, Caesar and vinaigrettes are good. I then grab a few ingredients I like to eat with my salad and some meat to spice the salad up. Thing of different way you can mix up the salad so it does feel like the same salad or it will get old and you won’t want to eat any of it.

Now for prepping the salad. I like to premix the lettuce and dressing so I am only dressing the lettuce and not all the ingredients when it is unneccessary. Then I add the ingredients to the top. I like to add Feta cheese, shredded parmesan cheese, croutons, bacon bits, etc. Then I like to add the meat if I have prepared any. Sometimes your salad will not need all these ingredients but something simple and minimal. I plan to make a caesar salad with salmon mixed in it. I love salmon and its good for you. So this will will be a healthy delicious meal for me.

Take the actual healthy things you like and amplify it!
