28 Day Increase      April 3rd-April 30th

28 Day Increase April 3rd-April 30th

I don't know about you, but I cannot wait until spring is here! Luckily, that is right around the corner. The good days of the farmers market and more in season fruits and veggies makes my tummy happy... and my wallet. 

Recently I have been better about preparing meals, but I have lacked my daily intake of fruits and veggies. Not only that but I haven't been adamant about grocery shopping and planning meals ahead of time. This has resulted in food going to waste, yet we feel like we have nothing in our cupboard, fridge, or pantry. Neither are good things to have. So, it's time to get back on track! Let's shop for things we are going to use, and make a plan to use them! 

For these reasons I have decided I am going to do the 28 Day Increase and add in some general grocery shopping lists and ideas for meals. This will not only hold me accountable for myself, but it will also include me helping you with your grocery shopping and meal plans. Now, we all have different schedules, so we will have to decide for ourselves when we will make what meal, and what variety we will be making. Some of us are vegetarians, vegans, and carnivores. You won't find meaty recipes on this page, but I am sure you can modify many of my recipes to include the meat of your choosing. OR feel free to join us for these recipes and don't eat meat. It's really up to you! 

I will provide youtube videos of workouts (not made by me but ones that I often do). So, hopefully, we can all come together and experience the same workouts and feel the same burn.

The general overview of the 28 Day Increase is meant for us to focus adding healthful things into our diet instead of taking away a bunch of things. I choose this style of health coaching because it allows you to rejoice about adding things into your diet instead of feeling bad about falling back into an old habit. I'm not saying programs like that don't work, I'm just saying they don't work for me. I don't want to feel bad or guilty about something I decided to eat. I want to feel happy about the things I am choosing to eat. Maybe this doesn't make sense now, but hopefully, it will later. 

A "Mediterranean" diet, high in fruit, vegetables, fish and unrefined foods, is linked to a lower risk of heart attack and stroke in people who already have heart disease, according to a study of over 15,000 people in 39 countries around the world. The research also showed that eating greater amounts of healthy food was more important for these people than avoiding unhealthy foods, such as refined grains, sweets, desserts, sugared drinks and deep-fried food – a "Western" diet.
