I may as well rename my blog…

to “Real Simples Biggest Promoter Ever”!!

Ok, I rave about it all the time, but hell – it has amazing stuff!

Real Simple Magazine is the only magazine I subscribe to or buy.  I actually use a lot of the stuff in it, love the articles, and swipe the recipes constantly because they are actually practical!

This month, they had a list of 30 super healthy foods to include in your diet.  I liked this list because it made me realize that I am already doing a great job of feeding my family really healthy foods!

Of the 30, I already frequently serve these:

  • Black Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Chicken Breasts
  • Edamame
  • Eggs
  • Extra-virgin Olive Oil (EVOO for you Rachel Rae fans)
  • Oatmeal
  • Oranges
  • Peanut Butter
  • Whole-grain pasta
  • Yogurt (nonfat Greek)

I don’t think that 11 off the list is that bad at all!  We’re adding Blueberries and Walnuts to our breakfast routine to fit two more in.

One of my biggest efforts in our lives has been to revamp how we eat.  I’ve been working on this goal for two years now.  I try to keep ingredients simple.  I buy all the fresh veggies and fruits I can (frozen when I can’t) – keep the proteins lean and the grains whole wheat.

The result has been incredible in how we feel and how we feel about food.  It really says something when fast food actually sounds awful (with the exception of Taco Bell…I still love crunch wrap supremes). 

Anyway, you can hit up their website to look for something fun to try.  I’ll be hitting up this one next week!

  1. Since you recommended this awhile back, I've subscribed to this as well, and I LOVE it! Their recipes are really easy and I LOVE their organizational tips! Plus they have a nice section in the back for deals and coupons :)
