Summer is quickly approaching and for many, this means it’s time to slim down and tone up. It’s beach season after all and we want to look good. But you can’t ignore your body all year long and then suddenly expect it to whip into shape in a matter of days. This mentality leads to extreme dieting techniques, unhealthy eating patterns and increased stress – and it has got to stop! Imagine if you took care of your body all year and didn’t have to worry about depriving yourself just so you could feel more comfortable in a bathing suit. Imagine feeling comfortable with yourself ALL THE TIME. Imagine changing your lifestyle so that eating healthy and getting regular exercise become habits. Good habits. Habits that you enjoy. When eating and exercise become priorities, you’ve begun to value your health and you don’t need all the silly cleanses, detox’s and fasting diets. In fact, you’ll more than likely turn your nose up at them and never look back. That in and of itself is success.
Let’s make this summer the last summer over which to fret. Make your health a priority and start your lifestyle change today. Here are 5 healthy recipes that will nourish not just your body, but also your mind and soul.
