Pinterest! Have you met yet?

on August 6, 2014

One of the biggest complaints I get when people start their AdvoCare health journey is “I don’t know what to eat!” For me it was more about cutting out what I knew I shouldn’t eat…ALL things “white” (bread, flour, sugar, starch). I didn’t have a real issue w/ meals, it was more the snacking part that caused my mind to explode. I mean, I love fruit, boiled eggs and almonds but good grief lol~ I started chopping almonds and making homemade granola bars. I added peanut butter or FF caramel to my apples (this was BEFORE I turned into a health-nut FREAK and started removing colors, dyes, artificials, etc. from our diets!) 😀

Here, Lisa Leake from 100 Days of Real Food gives a wonderful snack list great for both kids and adults (many of which I already include, or a variation of, in my snacks). Now, if she could just tell me HOW to get my kids to eat them I’d be set
If you’ve got some time on your hands, look thr
ough her website, she’s got some great stuff there (recipes, meal plans, how to cut out processed foods, budgeting, a challenge for eating REAL foods)!

I ain’t gonna lie PINTEREST has been a real life saver! WHY did it take me so long to discover? My oldest daughter (now 25) used to talk about it all the time and I always responded with “what is it?” but then one day she SHOWED ME and I was hooked! You can find anything from recipes, inspirational quotes to the best buy on toilet paper HaHa I’ve discovered a LOT of my GF DF SF dishes on Pinterest. I’m able to decide (in my head…scary place) what i want to make, get the ideas from Pinterest on how to start it then I alter it to fit our needs (sometimes I even luck up with finding a recipe already put together that works for us). MOST of my DIY (toxin-free!) items have originated from there. But, I must warn you, you will have to limit your time there because if you’re not careful you could literally spend hours upon hours “pinning” things you’ll never look at again ROFL~
