Remember when I wrote about how proud I was that Brian and I were cooking instead of eating out all the time? I thought we had dodged a great bullet. “I don’t have to worry so much about us gaining tons of weight,” I thought. We cook. Surely if our choice to eat in rather than eat out is saving us both money and calories.
You see, I like cheese. A lot. And Brian and I both have a considerable sweet tooth. So the things we wind up eating at home are often not the healthiest. Or they would be healthy if eaten in their intended portion size.
Yesterday Brian and I went for a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which was a nice way for me to get out of the house without having to exert a ton of energy. I brought my camera and we stopped a few times and took some pictures. Brian offered to take on of me, and when I looked at it I was appalled.
We have to do something.
Today, Brian and I are embarking on a mission to eat healthier. We haven’t done anything about it in terms of menu planning, grocery shopping, or anything like that. It remains an abstract goal that we have set for ourselves as of a few days ago. But it’s a start.
Do you have a favorite place to get healthy recipes? I love Skinnytaste, but I’d love to hear what other ones you guys can come up with!
