I just love the fact that since turning to a more natural, whole food, healthy lifestyle, I have yet to get sick! My entire office is coughing and sneezing and I remember that was me when I used to eat packaged food, esp. Lean Cuisines! I can only thank this new lifestyle for improved health.
Eating natural and clean has been so much fun and you never feel like crap after eating! I have a big appetitie so the fact that I can eat a huge plate of veggies and feel fine after is amazing to me. Plus I didn't eat a ton of calories either. Another perk of healthy eating, you can eat good food and not intake huge amounts of calories.
If I'm in a carb mood, I'll eat brown rice or quinoa....wheat makes me nervous because you can never be too sure it's actual wheat. They even make pasta made out of brown rice and it is amazing. It's called Tinkiyada (spelling?), love it!
If anyone needs to chat about whole foods/clean eating or has any questions, I'm always up for it!
