The Best-Kept Nutrition Secret Ever…

To say that frozzzen hot chocolate is delicious is to say that Zac Efron is cute.

Last month, I bought a container of Serendipity’s Frrrozen Hot Chocolate Mix. To say that it’s delicious is to say that Zac Efron is cute. Yummy doesn’t even begin to cut it.

Yesterday afternoon, when looking for a snack, I contemplated making some of the mix. I glanced at the nutrition information, only to discover that each serving contains 61 grams of sugar, 66 carbohydrates and nearly 400 empty calories. Yikes! Clearly, it’s a drink for very special occasions – and not something to be consumed every day.

For a few minutes, I was a bit crestfallen. But then I realized that there were plenty of delicious alternatives that I could eat – putting into practice one of the best-kept nutrition secrets: Don’t focus on what you can’t eat. Focus on what you can eat.

If you focus on the foods that you can’t eat, making healthy choices could be unnecessarily painful. You’ll feel deprived, and by thinking about unhealthy foods – you’ll develop cravings from them. If you think about cheesecake long enough, you’re probably going to get a hankering for some. Don’t mourn over what you can’t eat; rejoice in the foods that you can! Take a glass half-full approach.

Indeed, frrrozen hot chocolate might not make the cut – but many other refreshing options like smoothies or fruit salad are viable alternatives. And healthy foods can be delicious and satisfying, so put your energy and attention there.

And there you have it – the best-kept nutrition secret ever. EVER!

You Can’t Buy a New Body When This One Craps Out.

When you’ve worn holes in your sneakers, you can get a new pair. When your jeans no longer fit, you can buy some new ones. If you misplace a hat, you can replace it. But when it comes to your body, things aren’t so disposable.

I honor my body outwardly through actions and exercise because I only have one body, and because it’s the vehicle through which I experience this amazing world and all of its lessons.

But equally important is honoring my body inwardly through affirming words and thoughts. After all, our words and thoughts are the foundations for our actions; we act on the beliefs we cultivate. If we affirm and uplift our bodies through thought, then perhaps we’ll be less likely to misuse or abuse it through unhealthy actions – like avoiding the gym or feeding it with foods that aren’t nourishing… like the Snickers flavored cake sitting on my counter.

So, in the comments below, I encourage you – as difficult as it might be – to write a sentence or two to honor your body. I’ll go first…
