Many of you may wonder what I'm doing posting all these traditionally "non diet" foods on here. Well, it's because I lost 40 pounds by not dieting!! Yes! I eat regular foods, just in smaller portions and I exercise daily.
Some of those BIG weight loss programs where you buy their expensive weekly food, it's just regular foods in smaller portions. Save some money and do it yourself!
Now, I don't just eat any food. I try to avoid chemicals whenever possible. I don't eat "fat-free" or "sugar-free" either, because they are a substandard food product typically full of chemicals.
The more chemicals that your body is busy metabolizing, the less time it has to take care of you. Your body is an AMAZING machine, and if taken care of, it will do whatever you need it to do.
The trick to a healthy diet is single portions of real, healthy, unadulterated food. Food in it's most untouched state is best.
When buying something that is processed, like a corn tortilla, look at the ingredients and choose a kind that has the least amount of gunk. If you are blessed to have a natural store near you, I know you can find some that have been made with basic ingredients, as if you made them from scratch. (Which I have tried making before, but have been unsuccessful in using them as taco shells because they end up too thick and crumbly.)
I LOVE a good fish taco!! Here is a recipe that we like to eat. If you want to eat them all the time, I would recommend un-fried fish. But for a special treat now and then (which is how we do it), a little fried fish in a single portion is just good for the soul.
Also, we like to pile the shredded cabbage up high because raw cabbage is SO GOOD for you!! (I wish I had a photo to show you. I'll have to post the next time we eat them.)
