Food Journaling 101

Someone once said that “stressed” is “desserts” spelled backwards.  Which is one reason why a food journal in general is a good idea (and also why you see that tasty salad pictured above!)  You can use a fancy notebook to detail your experiences, or simply print this basic food journal and fill it out for three days: http://bit.ly/1kmCuZL

Here is something to consider before beginning your journal journey:

Write down everything you eat on three weekdays and one weekend day, using the following guidelines: http://www.realsimple.com/health/nutrition-diet/healthy-eating/keep-food-journal-10000000965749/. Be brutally honest.

Keeping a food journal is an opportunity to get grounded, to really think about your food intake and the way food makes you feel.  Most of all, be honest, you’ll get the best results that way.  Let me know if you have any questions at designnutrition@yahoo.com

Remember to include raw foods, very refreshing in warmer weather.
