Let’s Get Active: Walking

If you are new to the workout game I suggest starting with walking. It’s an easy way to get moving without overworking yourself.

The CDC suggests that adults should get 10,000 steps a day. 10,000 seems like a big number, but the steps add up quicker than you think. Just add all this up…walking through the grocery store or mall counts, walking on your lunch break counts, trips to the bathroom count, the list could go on. You can easily get to 10,000 steps if you actively try to achieve it.

Here are some of my suggestions to make walking a part of your daily routine:

Sweet Garlic Meatballs with Cauliflower Rice and Broccoli

Here is another healthy reboot of one of my favorite recipes. Have you ever had those meatballs with the chili sauce and grape jelly? Those things are delicious, but not really the best for you. To alter the recipe I just cut down on the sugar. By adding the sugar (in this case Splenda brown sugar) myself, instead of using the sweetness from the jelly, I was able to control how much sugar was added.

Also, by using riced cauliflower, instead of rice, I was able to cut out a load of carbs.

This recipe is also a great one for meal prepping. You can easily make a couple batches of the meatballs and freeze them for later use. Also, to make cooking easier this is a perfect slow cooker recipe.

Positivity and Your Health

From the very beginning of this blog, I have shared my love of optimism. If you are optimistic there is a better chance good things will happen…at least that is the trend I have seen. (Don’t get me wrong, crappy things still happen. They are bound to happen no matter what you do.) But, could optimism not only help you have a better outlook on life but also help you be healthier?

Egg Roll Bowl…AKA Crack Slaw

Lately, I have been obsessed with this recipe. I have been craving Chinese food and this definitely filled the void. This recipe is inspired by a few floating around the internet, its typically called Crack Slaw. You can guess why! The stuff is so good you will want to eat it all! But, you can find the original recipe I modified here at Peace, Love, and Low Carb (P.S. I love their website – it’s a great resource and gives me some serious blog goals!)
