For just over a year I’ve tried to stick to a modified plant-based diet. Along the way, I ended up deciding to add back in small amount of fish and eggs (for protein and iron), but otherwise, I more or less committed to healthier plant-based eating habits. However, recent travel in Europe and general convenience led to me eat a bit more cheese than I’ve planned.
That said, I’m ready to start feeling better and eating better, so I have some new healthy goals! One way to help achieve a goal is to make your intensions know; build in some accountability. Which is why I’m sharing my goals with you all today.
Goal #1: Increase my iron and protein intake
How? Include at least one serving of iron and protein-rich food a day, along side vitamin C (to help absorb the iron)
Foods: tuna, salmon, spinach
Timeline + Measure: Feel noticeably more energized mid-day and during workouts by June 1st
Goal #2: Improve digestion
How? Include at least one serving of high fiber food a day. Drink ginger tea four time or more a week. Decrease cheese intake to one meal a day or less.
Foods: oatmeal, whole wheat bread, veggies
Timeline + Measure: Evening stomach issues occur less frequently by June 1st
What are your health goals?
