Making Smart Choices With Healthy Choice #HealthyChoices #cbias
Since the first of the year, I have been trying hard to pay attention to what I am doing right and doing wrong in my life regarding my health. The years really do seem to be going faster and faster, and I do know that the choices that I make for myself now will play a large part in how long I will live and how healthy and active I will be.
I have come to understand what a huge role food plays in determining not just our weight, but our health as well. I am a busy person, just like everyone else, and I would love to be able to cook from scratch everyday, but that just isn't realistic.
I was very happy to learn that Healthy Choice has just introduced Top Chef, a new line of delicious and easy to prepare meals. There are so many delicious varieties to choose from, and when I was shopping for them at Walmart, I really had a tough time deciding on which kinds to buy. For me, food has to taste great and fit into my budget, which these new Top Chef meals certainly do.
The variety I was most excited about trying was the Crustless Chicken Pot Pie which was the Season 10 Top Chef Winner!! It lived up to it's reputation, and really was super delicious.
It's so easy to fix Healthy Choice Top Chef meals, and this is one thing that I really appreciate, great tasting food that is quick to make. They pop right into the microwave, and when they are done in about four minutes, you pour the food from the steamer into the bottom bowl, and stir. So easy and convenient. The portions are generous, and are just the right size for me for dinner.
Frozen yogurt has almost replaced ice cream for me. I still love the occasional treat of a cone or a bowl, but ice cream has way too many calories for me to be a part of my healthy lifestyle plan.
I love this new Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt. I also adore chocolate, so the Dark Fudge Swirl is my favor flavor, and the chocolate swirl really does taste yummy.
The Dark Fudge Swirl really is my favorite, but I also enjoyed the Strawberry flavor too. There are also other flavors to choose from, and at only 100 calories a serving, this is perfect for dessert or an afternoon snack. I prefer eating Greek yogurt because it is healthier than regular yogurt.
I stocked my freezer with this new Healthy Choice treat and saved money too, by using the $1 off coupons that are available for use. They are also available for the Healthy Choice Top Chef meals too, and that is a great savings.
Of course a healthy lifestyle isn't just about the food you eat. I think it's an attitude you can learn to adopt, and let simple pleasures play a part of your everyday life. I try to buy myself a bouquet of flowers every week, whether it is from the grocery store or the farmers market. It gives me a little boost of happiness whenever I see my flowers, all week long.
Physical activity is a very important part of staying healthy through every decade of my life. I love practicing yoga almost everyday at home, and taking an occasional yoga class.
I can't do anything near what is on the cover of these books, but the books provide inspiration for me.
I also enjoy walking with my daughters, and love the fact that you can take up walking at any age and really benefit from it.
Top Chef meals come in so many different varieties, you are sure to find a few favorites. There are lots of chicken, steak, turkey, Asian flavors and more to choose from. They really do taste great, and are playing an important part of my choice to live the healthiest life that I can.
Greek yogurt is also a daily part of my diet, and I'm very happy I have discovered the new Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt and all it's great flavors.
Our food choices are such an important part of our lives, and I know I'm making a smart choice when I choose Healthy Choice.
