Eating better: Goals

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Yesterday I listed some things we have done in the past and continue to do in order to eat better. Here are some goals we have as well:

  1. Eating local. Mass distributed food often travels hundreds or thousands of miles to arrive at the grocery store. While I'm not the best at lowering my carbon footprint, I think this is a good place to start. We have a goal to eat more local produce and meat when we can afford it. Local produce is usually cheaper and always tastes better. We have a few farmer stands still open so we will purchase from them until they run out! Obviously, we can't keep it up during the winter but we will start again in the spring.
  2. Less sweets. I have such a strong sweet tooth! We don't buy cookies or anything like that regularly so what sweets we eat, I have to make. That usually keeps from eating too much except recently I re-discovered the ease of no-bake cookies. Soooo...I'm going to try eating sweets just on the weekend. Hopefully that keeps from doing too much harm!
  3. More greens. That's hard during the winter, especially since I want to eat more local. But we can't live on rice and squash through the whole winter.
  4. More water. Enough said.
What would you add? Do you have any eating goals you try to stick to?


  1. I am a big believer in not cutting anything out (unless you have to for health reasons). I think that it is all about moderation. Eating lots of fresh fruits, veggies and lean protein to stay healthy and fit! But once in a while... a peice of chocolate is just fine;)

  2. We've recently started eating more fish and chicken and have tried to eat less red meat. We're both trying to lose some weight, so we eat a lot of salads and I've had to become pretty creative;).
