I finished my 21st day of my second #resolution21 goal: 2-4 servings of fruits/veggies everyday. I have so much respect for those people who make the daily decision to live & stay healthy. Waking up half an hour to eat a healthy and prep a day’s worth of healthy snacks/meals, dedicating an hour everyday to exercising, saying no to unhealthy and opting for the healthier, all these seemingly small decisions make all the difference. Making goals to consume healthier foods are definitely helping me feel lighter and more energized. I can feel an immediate difference when I consume foods containing high salt/sugar/grease. Although I do have a harder time with my veggies, so I am gonna have to set another goal to help me with that. Anyone that has any good ideas/recipes please do share by hashtagging #eathealthywithohmylee~ it would be much appreciated! Let’s get healthy! #changeyourlife #eathealthy #fightforfit #fitness #health #fitspiration #fitspo #fitfam #justdoit #fruits #veggies #healthychoices

RECIPE: 8 cucumbers,2 celery hearts,1 5lb bag of carrots, 1 lemon,1 bunch of watercress,1 bunch of kale, 1 bunch of parsley.
DIRECTIONS: This recipe will fill 6 16 oz jars. Juice all of the ingredients together. When juicing, have a large pitcher or bowl standing by to pour your juice into when your receiver cup gets full. I suggest juicing the greens first, then following them with the lemon,celery,carrots and cucumber to rinse them through. If you’re manually juicing your greens, when finished, add your green juice to the celery,cucumber,carrot,lemon juice.

Eat your almonds!

"Research has shown that almonds raise levels of the hormone cholecystokinin, which is associated with a satisfied feeling of fullness and that although almonds can leave both women and men stay feeling fullness, women can stay feeling full for a longer time." - www.aboutnutritionfacts.com

Not to mention that almonds are low in carbohydrates and high in protein, antioxidants, fiber, calcium, magnesium, folic acid, and zinc. Having a handful a day can lower your risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s, lower your cholesterol, maintain strong bones&teeth and aid in weight loss.

You can prep your own almonds (without the salt, sugar, etc) by buying a bag of raw almonds and roast them fresh at home at 200Β°F for 10-15min. They are super delicious and oh so nutritious πŸ˜πŸ‘

RED: The phytochemicals in red foods are carotenoids and anthocyanins. One of the most abundant carotenoid is lycopene. Lycopene helps reduce damage from free radicals in your body and it also prevents heart disease, cancer, prostrate problems, and reduces the skin damage from the sun. These red foods help memory function, urinary tract health, and makes your heart healthy. #foodfacts #red #healthfacts #health #fitness #resolution21 #eathealthywithohmylee

Was craving a sweet study snack so I delved into the fridge for some kiwi. For my sweet friend @leemissy I decided to put up some health benefits of this delicious fruit πŸ‘ Found on healthdiaries.com 1. Lung Health Kiwi fruit contains more vitamin C than oranges and is especially effective against respiratory health problems such as shortness of breath, asthma and cough. Kiwi’s are also good for: 2. Cardiovascular Benefits 3. Lower Blood Pressure 4. Cancer Prevention 5. Bone and Connective Tissue Support 6. Digestive Tract Health 7. Blood Sugar Regulation #foodfacts #healthbenefits #kiwi #health #healthyeating #resolution21 #eathealthywithohmylee

starting round 2 of my #resolution21 project. working out is nothing if you don’t combine it with healthy eating. I’ve never been very good at doing extreme diets so instead I thought I’d try adding something to it instead: 2-4 servings of fruits and veggies everyday. I hoping that by adding these to my diet I will naturally replace one or two less healthy choices throughout the day. I started today with a peanut butter, banana and honey sandwich on some wheat bread and for snacks today I packed an apple and a handful of strawberries πŸŒπŸŽπŸ“ here’s to a healthier body and happier me 😊❀πŸ’ͺ #resolution21 #eathealthywithohmylee #health #fitness #wellbeing #eatright #healthybody #happyheart

day 2 of no grains, no starch, no sugar. watching @thesugarangel eat my free cookie from Xa’s and if any of you are major sweettooths like me you’ll understand how I feel right now 😭 but there’s no procrastinating when it comes to taking care of my health so gonna stay strong!! #lookssodelicious #smellssogood #fightthetemptation #fightforfit #fightforhealthy #letsdoit #eathealthywithohmylee (at Xa - Sweet & Savory Cafe)
