I had to apologize to everyone in my office for snorting so loudly. I tried and tried not to laugh.... I was laughing so hard i was crying for minutes.

I stay relatively paleo, I guess. No grains typically, but I'll still eat cheese. I stick with meats, veggies, and fruits. I usually drink water, but I don't mind tea or even juice sometimes. Real juice, not those "juice cocktails" with a million ingredients. My breakfast is typically eggs with green peppers or spinach, or bacon and apples with peanut butter. Again, real peanut butter where the only ingredient is peanuts.

Reading ingredient labels will definitely help you become more aware of how much junk you consume without realizing it.

That typo

I don't drink soda. I basically only drink water. Always have though. I don't like carbonation and juice is usually too expensive (but I love it). I used to drink milk every day, but I haven't had it in a few weeks because dairy gives me a stomachache and phlem lol!

ETA: I do drink tea. When I was having milk and cream, I had coffee every day but now I have tea with honey.

I'm just going to piggy back on what Beanie said (because it was awesome).

I read a quote a while back and I can't remember it word for word, but the general idea is to eat things that remember their "past." For example, grapes come straight from the vine. Grape Fruit Roll-ups? Not so much.

If it comes in a box or a can we generally don't eat it. I'd guess about 90% of our groceries are fresh, real foods. The other 10% are things I couldn't imagine making from scratch- generally things like Greek yogurts, feta cheese, etc, etc. My husband and I are lucky in that we REALLY love veggies and fruits and don't like fast food.

I totally agree with Laurelin on eating one "free" meal out a week. For us, tomorrow we're going out to our favorite Mexican restaurant and I'm excited about getting chicken enchiladas

When you do go out for meals besides that one "free" meal, be calorie (and portion) conscious. Realistically, my husband and I end up going out for lunch once or twice a week. There's a little salad/wrap/smoothie place that we go to about once a week, and all of the options are healthy and fresh. Sure, it's still going out to eat- but a 300 calorie hummus salad and 150 calorie smoothie is better than a 1500 calorie lunch at McDonalds.

Has anybody else used this site?

http://nutritiondata.self.com/

If so, do you think it is legit? I like that I can look up the nutritional content of pretty much any food (ranging from 'natural, whole foods' to pre-packaged stuff to restaurant/fast food). I just want to know if the informational content is valid.

I just wanted to throw in... and I haven't read all the replies.. but my "healthy" diet just consists of organic food. No genetically modified foods if I can avoid it. I cook with GMO free oils, butters, etc. and then actually make GMO free foods with GMO free sides, sauces, etc. Meijer has a pretty nice line of options now along with some meat... lots of fruits and veggies!

Eating organic has been an awesome change for me. I feel so much happier, I'm more active, my acne has cleared up a lot, etc.

I also wanted to say that I was having a talk with my boyfriend's sister last week, as she had just returned home from a 4 month study abroad program in argentina and she made a good point about food consumption there. In America, we are often told to clear our plate/finish our food because it's a waste and other people are starving or whatever. Well, in Argentina they see it as a waste to eat food you are not hungry for/after you are content or full because that food isn't actually doing anything for you. Makes sense, but it's never broken down that way here! So they advocate a lot smaller serving sizes because that's all you actually NEED and USE.
