The fourth of July is tomorrow. It’s a great day for picnics, barbecues, fireworks, and outdoor activities. Usually, there is food. . .lots of food, and not necessarily healthy food.
What to do?
Make smart choices.
I avoid hot dogs, but am happy to eat a hamburger. Hot dogs have too much fat and too little nutritional value. I will eat chips, but a small amount. Potato salad is wonderful!
So, it goes to portion sizes, or skipping something else. I tend to eat in moderation. It’s okay to feel a little bit of hunger.
Basically, I’m not going without. I’m taking care of myself, for myself and those I love.
I tend to think about portion sizes. I don’t worry so much about everything needing to be healthy food. I find that if I deny myself the opportunity to choose, I crave the item I’ve band from my diet. I guess it’s true that we want what we cannot have. . .
Challenge for Those Who Accept. . .Have a wonderful holiday! Eat food you enjoy! Work on controlling the portions, and don’t worry about the rest! Remember moderation. . .
