I am so much more disciplined with my eating habits when the warm weather is upon us. But, once the air turns a bit chilly, and in my case wet from Pacific Northwest "liquid sunshine", my cravings for salads seem to subside and all I want is pasta and bread. Oh, and cookies. Oh, and chips and dip. Oh, well, you know. These foods don't do well for your body, if you're trying to maintain a healthy weight, so I'm looking for alternatives.
I make a lot of sandwiches in the week for my girl's school lunches so I'm going in a different direction from the typical sandwich and giving wraps a try. I've found a great resource for low carb foods online at The Low Carb Grocery. It offers a full selection of foods low in carb count, which would otherwise be on the heavy side. So far the wraps are a hit with my girl's, and that makes my shopping that much easier.
I can not believe the difference in my body shape when I cut out high carb foods. And my energy level is higher as well. Now, I won't be one to pass up fresh baked bread, but I am getting myself back on track and keeping my carb intake low.
How about you? Do you have a love-and-pass-me-the-butter fondness? Or, do you try to avoid carbohydrates?
