Deep Dive Into Eating

SESSION 4

Balancing Act

Cooking more with olive oil -- that was last session’s Challenge. Did you have time to make it happen? It does take a few minutes to plan ahead but as your recipe collection grows—and be sure to flag the ones that are a hit—you’ll find it becomes second nature to stock up on the basic items you’ll need in your pantry to pull something healthy together on the fly.

 

Now on to Session 4. We’ve all seen performers who depend on a highly tuned sense of balance to succeed. The, trapeze artist, the soccer player who reverses direction and stays on her feet, the juggler with 3 whirring chain saws (don’t try this at home!). Eating a balanced diet involves some of the same skills but it’s a whole lot easier to pull off.

CHALLENGE #4:

Take everything you’ve learned over the past 4 sessions and begin to put them into practice in your life. Anyway you do it is fine. You might just start out with keeping an eye on the nutrition labels when shopping. Or, begin to switch your diet around a bit so it mirrors aspects of the Mediterranean Diet. Or maybe just tell trans fats and salt to take a hike. Start cooking with olive oil and other seasonings instead. Or maybe just start with painting your plate with a rainbow assortment of vegetables. Whatever’s easiest for you is a great place to start. And most of all, enjoy. That’s what healthy eating should be all about.
