Do Your Meals Match Your Clothes?


Lunch today consists of leftovers: a turkey burger and a half on a bed of spinach, and green beans with an adventurous dab of Asian hot sauce (not shown in the picture.) The turkey burgers don’t look that great, but they are incredibly delicious. They are made with ground turkey and zucchini squash. I made the mistake of cooking them directly on the grill instead of using parchment paper causing some of them to get stuck. Nonetheless, they are tasty. The zucchini keeps the burgers moist.

Last night someone at yoga mentioned that she was taking probiotics after having taken a cycle of antibiotics due to a sinus infection. Earlier that day I was at Whole Foods Market and picked up my favorite sauerkraut. This super food is a delicious way to add billions of beneficial bacteria in your meals, helping maintain or reestablish a healthy gut microbiome. It is a lot cheaper than buying probiotic supplements and a lot tastier.

Eating healthy takes a bit of planning but not monumental effort. Sometimes people walk out of their homes without knowing what they are going to eat for lunch. When you think about it, many take more time choosing the clothes that they are going to wear the next day than the food they put into their bodies. Changing this attitude, becoming interested and empowered in our meal choices is the first and most important step toward greater health.
