31 Days of Fit- Eat Real Food
This one is for Kristen. There, I said it.
Sometimes it doesn't seem bad to eat crap all. the. time. Cereal for dinner, while easy, is not nutritious. And because this is "31 days of fit", not "31 days to be skinny" (because *Spoiler Alert* unless you ARE skinny, you won't be in 31 days) It is about making better choices to be healthy, and improve your life.
So back to the point. Some really smart people came up with this cool website called choosemyplate.gov which takes into account your age, size and activity level and tells you what amount of each category (fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy) you need every day to be healthy. Weird that there isn't a box for cereal ;)
This can help structure your meals so that you are eating those basic things, like Protein, Grains and Fruits and Veggies. When we are busy people (especially people with kids) it is just easier to eat whatever is fast. But I implore you to eat more real food. :)
