It can be difficult to change your diet without a dash of optimism.
Being optimistic truly is the secret ingredient to pushing forward in your quest for a healthier you. Being optimistic means you're hoping for a favorable outcome. Obviously staring at an uncommon vegetable or green smoothie with negative thoughts won't make it taste any better. Be positive. Be adventuresome. The only way you will expand your healthy food options is by trying new things.
Go into every new culinary adventure with an open mind. Since starting this blog I've discovered so many foods that have now become kitchen staples. Quinoa. Asparagus. Mushrooms. Squash. Brown rice. Potato flour. Lentils.
What new foods have you tried lately? Or, what would you like to try? Remember, be optimistic, not skeptic! You may just find your palate has changed over the years and you enjoy more produce and whole grains than you did as a child!
Until Next Time,
Whole Foods Living
PS: Tomorrow I'm highlighting a new food I just tried. It starts with the letter "P" to fit with the A to Z Blogging Challenge!
