I eat bread. I eat ice cream. I really like pizza.
At the same time, I really enjoy breaking a sweat. And I like fruit and vegetables. And salad.
I drink lots of water. I don’t drink soda. But I do like iced coffee and sweet tea.
I finally understand that, for me, balance is more important that being an extreme fit person or an extreme donut eater.
To love yourself as a whole person means to nourish, sustain, and care for not only your physical body but also your mind and soul.
Restricting my favorite foods tends to make me moody and a tad miserable, but over-indulging on sugar and pizza oftentimes leave me lethargic and bloated (let’s be honest).
I really like an iced coffee with caramel swirl from Dunkin Donuts, I’m not opposed to caffeine, but I probably drink about 70 ounces of water a day.
It’s a fact of life: when I eat well, I simply feel better – with more energy and a better ability to focus. And that’s marvelous news. But, when I eat my favorite foods (that wouldn’t be put in the ‘clean eating’ category), I also feel good.

Salads, fruits, vegetables, oh my! All of these and more are on my Spring recipe list. (I’ll keep you posted.)
Have any favorite Spring dishes? I’d love to hear them.
