Food Log – Mediterranean Meal

Food Log – Mediterranean Meal

NJ Accountability is Sweet Bannet

These daily posts show everything I eat and drink.  This transparency brings accountability to me as I ‘cleanse’ from refined sugar. I hope it also provides a few simple meatless meal and snack ideas for you.

Most of today was spent away from home, so I picked up one of my favorite hearty salad meals from Zoe’s Kitchen.

I adore their food. Zoe’s Kitchen features Mediterranean dishes with a modern spin. Mediterranean cuisine is heart-healthy and recognized by the World Health Organization for its sustainability and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends this pattern of eating for improved health and the prevention of chronic disease.  Zoe’s Kitchen meals are made from fresh ingredients, always favorable, and the menu includes many vegan and vegetarian options. {Score!}

Zoe’s is one of my go to restaurants for self when I want something filling on the run, and for group catering when I host lunch and learn events.

The falafel plate entree was the anchor of today’s eating. A plate full of vegetable goodness.

Zoe’s Kitchen is a franchise with over 250 restaurants across the nation. If there is one by you, are you a Zoe’s fan as well? If you have never tried their food, check em out – I’m sure you’ll become a fan as well.

Here’s the day’s eating.

Accountability is Sweet 2020 Reboot

Accountability is Sweet 2020 Reboot

The past few days, my sweet teeth have been out of control. 

Time to reign it in.

Repeating a nip-it-in-the-bud process that did the trick 4 years ago. Time to cut (not moderatecut) refined sugar. Natural sugars only till the sugar monster is gone.

Starting today, I’ll snap picts of everything I eat and drink and share on my social media and blog.

This transparency brings accountability to me and hopefully a few simple meatless meal and snack ideas for you.

Thanking God for Change

Thanking God for Change

Change is not easy, but it is possible.

I thank God for change.

This was me. These pictures were taken during my young adult years (20s – mid 30s).

I wish I could say my look was  youth or baby weight.  The truth – it was from 3-piece Popeye’s meals, catfish plates, Krispy Kreme, and peach cobbler with Blue Bell.

I was on the path to high blood pressure and diabetes which predominates my family tree.

I wanted to change to improve my health and tried all the things. ALL THE THINGS.

I did the detoxes, drank the teas, joined clubs, groups, programs and challenges.  

I was almost always on the popular diet of the day, and I worked out a lot – yet, I was unable to attain or maintain a healthy weight.

With all the ups and downs, starts and stops, I felt frustrated, defeated, was wrecking my metabolism and making myself sick in my efforts to get well.

The struggle is real – but not necessary.

This is me. These pictures are more recent, taken in my early 40s through last month (age 50).

Thank God for change!

My path to change? Tired of struggling – I surrendered and applying the truth that “apart from God we can do nothing’,  I made the condition, size, and health of my body a God thing.

Slowly but surely God led me to find my fit (re food and exercise), and be more consistent in it.

I DON’T diet, or rely on detoxes, teas, or challenges anymore {Glory to God!} yet, I’ve attained and MAINTAINED my healthy weight. And today, as a certified health coach, degreed and credentialled health education specialist, I joyfully help others do the same.

In addition to the volumes of health helps and resources in my book, blog, podcast, and social media, I work with congregations, community groups, and one-on-one with individuals, providing curated science-based, faith-empowered education and coaching solutions that help people get unstuck and live in the body God designed.

If you need to change, want to change, are ready to change, and need some help – let’s connect.

Click here, provide your deets and we’ll be in touch.

God desires that we enjoy good health and that all may go well even as our soul is getting along well. (3 John 2 NIV). Our choices and actions can and should align with His desire.

You can do it! Let’s work together find your fit and fast track progress to your goals.

God bless and be well.

Exercise With Your Kids

Exercise With Your Kids

Excessive sedentary time has adverse health effects, and studies reported by the National Institutes of Health indicate US children are sedentary about 8 hours per day. (These are waking hours – not counting hours they are sleep).

Dollar to donuts many of the Christmas gifts our youth received encourage or increase sedentary time.

Let’s step up and take an active role in getting our youth up and active.

Make it a family affair. Exercise with your children.

Here are a few easy, enjoyable ideas:

Take a walk and explore your neighborhood and nature.

Go on a bike ride.

Play active games. Go old-school with some Red Light/ Green Light, Tag, Hopscotch, Double Dutch, Chinese Jump Rope, or Kick the Can.  

Put on some music and dance. 

Go school PE away from school with some calisthenics or sports (dodgeball!!!) . 

NJ Exercise with your kids

Or get some chores accomplished by engaging them in active work like serious house cleaning, snow shoveling, or the raking of leaves. 

What are some ways you get your kids active?

Set the intention and make it happen – together.

It’s good for everyone’s health.

Wellness Wednesday – Raise Your Health Awareness

Wellness Wednesday – Raise Your Health Awareness

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, National Domestic Violence Month and Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. These and many other health conditions impact people of color at higher rates and/or cause more deaths and suffering, compared to other groups.  This can and must change.

I’m grateful to participate in two events that raise awareness about health disparities – how differences in people contribute to different health statuses, and steps we can take to improve health outcomes.

This week’s #WellnessWednesday Facebook Live shares more.

Wellness Wednesday October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. These and many other health conditions impact people of color at higher rates and/or cause more deaths and suffering, compared to other groups. This can and must change. Change starts with knowledge. Learn about two free upcoming education events that can help us live better. The Addressing Minority Health Disparities Lunch N Learn and All Of Us Journey Exhibit will be at New Hope Baptist Church of Baton Rouge October 17th. Both events are free and open to the public.

The Addressing Minority Health Disparities” workshop is one the most impactful and well received health education sessions I offer, and my Pastor and home church are excited to host the National Institutes of Health All of Us Journey Exhibit.  The information shared in these events can truly save and improve lives.

If you are in the Gtr Baton Rouge area, we’d love to see you Wednesday, October 17th.  If you are out of the area of can’t make it, please share the events/topics as health improvement (for individuals and communities) starts with knowledge.  I appreciate and thank you for help spreading the word.

Also check out, share, and apply (as applicable) the information, tools and resources made available by related organizations and programs. These folks are doing great work to help many.
