Are you too busy to be healthy? Do you think that in order to eat healthy has to be a battle between you, your will, and the taste buds of your family?

Beth Aldrich, healthy living and nutrition expert, joinrf Mom of Many Hats Radio to shed light on how we can transform our eating habits, and our attitude about food.  In her expertise, she knows that as real moms, we love food and we love to eat.  We don’t want to feel deprived as we move to a healthy lifestyle, and we certainly don’t want to battle our families either. Beth shared her strategies from her book Real Moms Love to Eat, that can help us realize that our love affair with food doesn’t have to come to an end, just so we can get back on the healthy track.

We All Have Issues! 

Beth addressed many issues that moms and women in general face when trying to adopt a healthy eating and living lifestyle.  Getting ourselves on track and our families on board isn’t always an easy task! In this broadcast Mom of Many Hats – Angie, and Beth discussed many sticking points as well as tips to get over the stumbling blocks to healthy eating. Some of the issues we talked about were:

  • Take small steps in making changes to a healthier food lifestyle. Too much change at once can be overwhelming.
  • Focus on the things you can do – empower your decisions.  Focusing on the “can’ts” can make the change much tougher.
  • Realize that we are in dysfunctional relationships with many of our favorite food friends (salt, sugar, carbs, fats).  We need to evaluate them and make them  healthy relationships.
  • Our relationship with food is often a very emotional one.  We need to address emotions attached to food and see if there is anything we need to change about the reasons we need or crave particular foods.
Beth also shared her favorite recipes from the extensive list of recipes provided in her book.  Her mouth watering recipes are sure to tempt even the pickiest of eaters!

  1. So many great points here. Food is such an emotional issue. Our bodies, unfortunately for some, do determine our mental health too. Very valuable information that you share. Thanks!

  2. I really like the focus on making a series of small changes with just one change at a time. It’s a far more sustainable route to long-term change. Something as simple as adding a vegetable serving to your dinner every day for a month is a fantastic start. After that, you could add on another small, simple change… like walking for 10 minutes at your lunch break or something.

    A series of small changes is the key. Great post, Beth!

  6. Taking small steps in changes could be applied not only in lifestyle change, its pretty effect for me! As you’ve said too much change at once can be overwhelming and might suffer from withdrawal.
