Welcome to Your Care Plan a place for good food and healthy recipes and most of all just about cooking. Cooking is a journey. This means that like all good pastimes there is always another place to go. Take the first steps, make simple dishes,build confidence, and then you will make new discoveries of flavors and recipes for the rest of your life. My journey with food has recently taken me to a plant-based diet. As I find and test plant-based recipes I will share them with you.
Here are some simple habits to promote well-being:
As much as you can, avoid added sugar in your diet. One good way to do this is to completely avoid drinking sodas, or juices. Drink water, or some plain milk, or tea and coffee without added sugar. Eat the whole fruit instead of drinking the juice.
Get lots of fiber by eating whole grains, brown rice, brown bread, etc. If you follow a plant-based diet it is still important to include as much fiber from various sources in your diet. This means fresh fruit, vegetables as well as whole grains.
If you want second helpings, wait 20 minutes and then you will find that often you change your mind.
If you want a snack, eat a handful of walnuts, almonds or other nuts.
Walk for 30 minutes or more every day and do muscle strengthening exercises at least twice each week.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy your path to healthy eating!
