It’s #NationalPeachMonth2017 and this is one of my other all time favorite #summerfruits
Peaches are nationally low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and contain an impressive assortment of vitamins and minerals to make it a truly nutritious food. Full of vitamin C and antioxidants as well as potassium, vitamin A and iron! What else could you ask for!
Try this #yummy fresh peach smoothie and try adding your favorite protein powder to it for that extra boost. It’s a great power snack for pre/post workout.
PEACH SMOOTHIE RECIPE!
1 fresh peach, peeled and sliced in to chunks
5 ounce contained of vanilla Greek Yogurt (try one that has extra protein in it and low in sugar)
Not processed, low calorie, non fat, packaged food or supplements to make up for the nutrients you’re depriving yourself when you decide to “diet” (ugh that dreaded word again) or deprive yourself of food, when you think that skipping meals will help you lose weight!
Try eating 3 meals and 2 small snacks that are balanced with those 3 little basic macronutrients called “Carbohydrates (oohh.. yeah), Protein and Fat!”
Yes.. we NEED all three of these to create energy and satiety and ultimately survive!
Ha, well…it’s not that simple, though it should be… it’s the practice of Intuitive Eating!
Intuitive eating is the process of “Making Peace with Food” through mind, body and spirit. It teaches you how to distinguish between emotional and physical hunger. Everyone is born with the ability to eat intuitively starting in infancy so we can certainly get back to that stage through the proper mind-set. Some can learn this and proceed to transform their diet mentality and others may need some help with the process….either way, it is the ultimate way to live life!

Intuitive Eating was originally created by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD and Elyse Resch, MS, RD, FADA, CEDRD, both of whom I have met and spoke to personally.
I have received a Certificate of Completion at the Intuitive Eating PRO Workshop 2.0 in 2012. If you need help, please contact me for a counseling session!
Are you trying to get your family to eat healthier, but all they do is put up a fuss? Here are some sneaky ways to cut those extra calories without them ever knowing… wink…..wink. I did this with my family and they never tasted the difference..in fact they “LOVED” my cooking!
Use egg whites in place of whole eggs (for example: 4 egg whites in place of 2 whole eggs) in any recipe
Splenda granulated in place of sugar while baking
Splenda brown sugar in place of regular brown sugar
Light sour cream in place of regular sour cream on your baked potatoes, tacos or quesadillas
Low fat cottage cheese instead of regular cottage cheese
Apple sauce in place of vegetable oil while baking
Use 1% or skim milk in place of whole milk
Bake your breaded chicken cutlets instead of frying them!
10% lean ground beef/sirloin instead of 30%
Baked potato chips instead of regular chips
Low sodium canned soup (if this is a must)
Light mayonnaise or try mustard on sandwiches
