It is so hard to develop what I call my ‘go to foods’. ‘Go to Foods’ are the daily meal options that I have created for myself to help me avoid eating poorly. This recipe does quadruple duty, it can be lunch, dinner, snack, or made into a tasty high protein breakfast.
This recipe is not really measured, so much as it is thrown together. To eat healthy on a daily basis you have to replace your current, ‘go to foods’ with new ‘go to foods’.
What exactly are ‘go to foods’? Simply explained it is what you eat when your hungry, that you know will satisfy that craving be it emotional or real. We all think that we eat a wide
variety of foods, but the realities are: Most of us eat two or three different breakfast, lunch, or dinner options. Look at your last week honestly and tell me often you repeated a type of food? Did you have three or four hamburgers last week, or 4 turkey sandwiches, or three breakfast burritos. Did spaghetti or pizza show up numerous times? I want you to really look at how many different meals you ate. One of the most diet defeating things that most diet gurus do is provide great daily diet plans with simple to follow menus and shopping list. Which begs the following question:
How many of you use a shopping list and plan your meals for a week in advance?
I suspect that unless you are a stay at home housewife or house husband and your bored, then you have time to follow a meal plan and a diet. Freak, that is too much work and too much drama. So I am sharing recipes and quick ways of cooking that has helped me loose over 50 pounds.
So throw away your old style of eating and try some of the foods I eat, create some quick go to meals on your own based on what I do or what you already know. Replace your old ‘go
to foods’ with a battery of new ‘go to foods”. When your house is full of your “go to foods’ you eat better. Here are links to several of my favorite “go to foods” cooking ideas.
