One of my resolutions this year was to eat healthier. I've been doing a pretty good job so far. My biggest problem usually arises when we are stuck in the house. We will eat snacks and less healthy meals. When we heard the weather was supposed to turn bad, I decided to make a pot of homemade vegetable soup. We had a little ground beef that I didn't want to go bad, so I threw that in, then added some chicken breast. I added onion, carrots, lima beans, green beans, peas, and potatoes, and lots of tomatoes. Our house smelled delicious as the soup was simmering.
When the soup was ready, we all had a bowl, and it carried me back to my childhood. When ever it would snow, my daddy would make a pot of soup. He made the soup so we would have something healthy to eat during the time we were home bound. I realized I cooked the soup for the same reason! I had learned from the best!
The soup pot is now almost empty, and the roads are almost clear. I survived this huge 2-3 inch snowstorm without compromising my healthy eating resolution. You know what I realized? No matter what the situation is, once you start eating healthier, you will lose weight. The key is continuing the healthy eating, because once you stop...It comes back fast!
