Just as dancing requires the right steps, so does participating in a weight management program.
When wishing to obtain a lower weight on the scale, we often must change our eating habits. That will most likely involve changing how we shop at the grocery store. That means making healthier choices. Colorful fruits and vegetables will give us important nutrients, and the WW plan encourages us to eat at least five servings daily. The squash in the top picture came from our vegetable garden this past fall, and the blueberries are from last summer's harvest, frozen for enjoyment through the winter months.
Be sure to include the appropriate dairy servings for your age/circumstance. At my "magic age," I need three servings of dairy a day. Also, focus on whole grains such as oatmeal and 100% whole wheat pasta. I am a fan of Fage 0% Greek yogurt. The Cabot's cheese block is 75% reduced fat, and the Babybel is light. There are other whole grains, of course, and we choose them whenever possible. Brown rice, grits, barley, bulgur, and polenta are only a few I will mention.
Items above are displayed on a tray of Susan Branch design! I am a real fan of anything she designs!
Not illustrated in today's post are the bottles of olive oil and canola oil that are staples at our house.
I send along wishes for a good week-end to all of you. Some of you may have snow. I hope you will be able to enjoy it, and that it will not pose any real problems for you.
In the meantime, anybody care for a waltz?:-)
Thank you for reading. I love your comments.
