Our Inspiration

Then God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good.  And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.  Genesis 1:11-13

Your Plate

Now that you know what your week is gong to bring, grab your grocery list and get going. Beam yourself up for success by shopping the fresh aisles.  Of course, there are farmer’s markets in the area that can supply you with lots of wonderful choices.  Take advantage of all the local fresh produce available this time of year. I love this visual offered by Monday night Tribe member Jane Key, Registered Dietician with Key Nutrition Consulting,

Two thirds of your plate should grow in the ground. One third can walk or swim!*

Isn’t that a fun way to look at your plate?  Heavy on the veggies and top it off with a walker or a swimmer!  So shop accordingly.  Plan for healthy, fresh snacks between meals.  While you are shopping be aware of your weakness.  Is it Potato chips?  Ice cream?  Baked goods?  Don’t let yourself even go down those aisles. And check the labels on everything for added sugar and for ingredients that you can’t pronounce. So today, go to the grocery and stock up on what Mother Nature provides from the earth and put a big limit on the man-made items.
