We’ve made it to May! I’m back with health tips from those supereasy resolutions that are totally realistic (as opposed to when someone at the gym told me to eat a half a potato and a protein shake for dinner. . . ummmm-really?).
TWO TIPS FOR MAY:
ONE: Time how long you’re brushing your teeth (2 minutes is recommended by the ADA). This is easy enough; I’ll admit there are times when I’m not meeting the 2 minute minimum. I think this is more of an awareness/intention item more than anything. Tooth-brushing is 100% painless and super important! I can do this!
TWO: Order your sandwich on healthy bread. Or no bread! The article recommended “whole wheat bread” – and I’d recommend that too – except I’m gluten free so I really cannot promote the whole-wheat bread wholeheartedly 😉 If you a re gluten-sensitive, look for whole grain, multi-grain, millet-chia or other healthy breads; or skip the bread altogether! I often at restaurants order a turkey burger or grilled chicken sandwich with no bun. Although it may seem strange at first, I know you can get used to it (because I sure did)! If you are not gluten-sensitive, you have my approval of whole wheat bread.
I hope you feel inspired by one or both of these tips! Health is all about developing manageable choices that can become healthy habits.
