Now that you have eliminated junk foods from your diet, it’s time to replace them. So what kinds of foods should you replace them with? Well, I guess it all depends on what your goals are.
I personally try to eat as many fruits and vegetables as I can reasonably get into my body each day. This means that I eat a salad or two nearly every day. Either for lunch or dinner, I will get one. Just that one simple step really helps me out as far as my mindset goes.
For me, I have debated the idea of eating “sugar free” foods, but I just don’t want to. I eat fruits as desserts and they do a good job of helping me out when I get cravings for sugar. I figure God really did know what He was doing when He created plants and water. People survived a long long time without the advent of Twinkies, so maybe they were onto something.
Basically, if it’s a fruit or vegetable, it’s a good start. I tend to side toward the organics, though I can’t always get them in my small town. I have found a brand of organic whole wheat bread that I love. Again, these changes have really helped me to regain perspective on life and view foods drastically differently.
