Healthy Eating in the Yellow

In today's world, it seems that everybody is concerned about living well and eating right. The diet and weight loss industry is certainly booming and media and entertainment outlets are certainly rolling in the dough with new and continuing reality weight loss programs that show the human side of what the American diet has done to many Americans.

For me, eating healthy has been a struggle not only because of old habits, but also because of a very hectic lifestyle and the choices I make as a result.

Choosing healthy nutritional options can be difficult in the world we live in but is definitely worth the time it takes to do so.

Currently, I am experimenting with vegetarianism. It just so happens that my current diet (not as in diet for weight loss, but the simple definition of diet being what is eaten) contains mostly poultry anyway so I thought it wouldn't be a big deal to eliminate meat completely. Since I don't eat pork, beef, and fish all that often anyway, I thought this could be doable. Also, in reflecting about the way I think about eating, I have always thought of the meat as the central part of the meal, with everything else complimenting the meat choice. So, I'd look in the frig, discover I had chicken and try to make a meal based on that. I want to see what will happen if I intentionally focus on vegetables/fruits/grains and make that the focus of my meals.

We'll see what happens.
