Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am grateful for so many things in my life today. My health, my family and friends and all the wonderful things I am learning about health and nutrition today.
I have been eating very healthy – doing all of my nutrition smoothies and juicing and wheatgrass and Udo’s oil and supplements and eating veggies and green drink and drinking lots of purified water and the list goes on. I feel wonderful when I eat this healthy! Then Thanksgiving comes – Turkey and mashed potatoes and stuffing (with sausage) Gravy and OMG! I splurged a bit – I made some roasted sweet poatatoes myself -they are loaded with nutrition and ant-oxidants. I felt horrible after. My stomach hurt and I was bloated. I woke up the next day (today) not feeling too well. Kind of like a bad food hangover! Amazing how sensitive my body is to “bad for me” foods when havent been eating them very often. The GOOD NEWS is I am back on track today and feeling better already! I have discovered roasted veggies and they can be really delicious. The more veggies -organic of course and the the bigger variety the better. Here’s a picture of a recent roasted veggie meal I made - was so yummy!
I added a liitle olive oil and seasoning – then broiled both sides. Yams, red peppers, asparagas, zuchini, portabello mushrooms, tomatoes, and i added some roasted acorn squash, lightly steamed spinach with lemon and freshh avocado to the meal. Delicious and nutritious! Also good on the grill.
