If you’re like me you woke up this morning and told yourself that this is going to be the year that you get healthier. No, seriously, I woke up this morning and said that. Just like I did last year, and the year before. You get the point. But seriously, this year more than ever I’m determined to get healthier and stay healthier. That’s the key…staying healthier. You see, I’m getting married this year. (Yay!) I’m determined to look my absolute best at the end of the year so that I feel beautiful and confident as I walk down that aisle.
So what’s my plan? How about we start with some of my flaws. I’m a total foodie, I love rich foods and sweet foods. And I like an overabundance of good food. All of those things add up to a not-so-healthy lifestyle at times. I really find that my diet makes up about 75% of living a healthy lifestyle. The problem that I see is my busy schedule often makes it difficult to stay on track with healthy lunches and dinners. I’m vowing to do my meal prep at the start of the week so that all I have to do is pull out a container from the refrigerator for lunch and go about my business.
I love that these lettuce wraps are quick as easy to make and give you a healthy dose of vegetables and protein. I have one of those cute divided lunch containers which make it easy to keep the chicken, dressing and vegetables separate until I’m ready to heat it up for lunch. The lean protein of the chicken is a great way to fill me up at lunch and the Thai Peanut dressing is just filled with flavor.
Preparing meals ahead of time is a great way to stay on track with a healthy diet. Stick to vegetables and lean proteins and you’ll keep yourself filled up until the next meal. We can do this! Let’s all vow to stick to our goals of a healthier lifestyle in 2015!
