I still get emails about my Eat to Live diet. I never blogged much about it because it was personal for me. It wasn't to fit into skinny jeans, it was to fit into maternity pants. Since the whole purpose of the diet was for Max, I feel discouraged right now to keep on it. It was encouraging when I was told he was one of the healthiest babies they've seen.
I still eat almost twice the amount of daily intake of veggies still and limit my dairy, bread, and meat intake and when I do, it's organic, but I will never go back to my old poor diet. I'm asked how do I start and how can I love veggies. It sounds cliche but just start. Don't wait for a new year, don't wait for new workout clothes or shoes, just go! As for the veggies, I can't make you love veggies, but I can make you sneak some in with this recipe from e-meals, it's a honey'd carrot and cheese spread.
You will need-
1/2 cup of shredded carrots (about 1 carrot)
1 1/2 cup of cottage cheese
2 tablespoons of honey
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Add the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until smooth.
I swear it tastes nothing like carrots, for those cringing at the carrots. Eat it with Dave's Killer Bread (my favorite) or pita bread, bananas, apples, even double your Vitamin A intake and dip with carrots. Enjoy!
You can save the rest in the fridge and it'll be good for a couple days.
