Week 14: Keep it Clean and Green
This is more of a long term goal then a weekly one, especially since with the Easter holiday and a visit from my MIL, I didn't really clean anything this week.
The Change: Choose whole grains in lieu of those that are refined.I'll let you in on a secret... I hate whole grains. I don't like whole wheat bread or pasta and I loathe brown rice. I think the only ones I do like is quinoa and corn (on the cob or in a can!)
The good side to this is that I don't eat a lot of refined grains anyway. I might have crackers with my lunch a couple of times a week, but I don't eat toast or cereal for breakfast, it's rare that I have a sandwich or bread product for lunch, and we don't eat a lot of pasta or rice. And since I'm trying to lose weight, I don't eat a lot of baked goods for desert. I'm not sure if these means that I'm not eating a well balanced diet, but it seems to work for me.
