Hello Beautiful Friend,
Hopefully you had a wonderful holiday weekend.
We hosted Easter last so our house was filled with 7 adults and my niece and nephew. There was lots of cooking, bright colored clothes and laughs. (the pic of my crazy family after Easter mass.) I even impressed my carnivore family members with vegetarian sloppy joes and a yummy kale salad with vegan parmesan. Despite my best efforts to eat healthy it still was a holiday weekend filled with snacks and treats. (I’m part Greek and cannot let company go hungry.) Thankfully the candy left with my niece.
Easter is Halloween’s close cousin and can be temptation central with candy eggs, marshmallow bunnies and chewing jelly beans around the house. Do you still have Easter candy lying around?
We had snacks out most of the weekend and I kept hiding the candy bowl. Why? Because when food is left out I’m A LOT more likely to eat it and odds are so are you.
Willpower only lasts so long and after turning down temptation after temptation eventually you give up. So, here is my simple trick and some examples:
Place the healthy food in plain sight (and hide the rest)
Hit the easy button and do yourself a favor by leaving temptation hidden. Try it out! It works, I promise.
Do you have a simple trick for eating healthy? If so, please share with the group in the comment section below.
Cheers to making life easier,
PS. If you still have Easter candy THROW IT OUT!
PPS: My sister Monica (in the blue glasses) didn’t join us this weekend but added herself to the pic:)
