“Eat for nutrition – not for taste”
 
WHAT?! 😳
 
Nooooooo! 
 
Seriously this is something I saw on a health coach’s post and I COULD NOT DISagree MORE!
 
That kind of logic is what prevents people from even trying to make changes! Who wants to sign up for eating bland – boring – flavorless food??? NOBODY!
 
Even if you start, for the sole purpose of bettering your health, food that’s not appetizing or enjoyable is not going to keep you committed or motivated for long.
 
Even if you get the results you wanted initially- they aren’t going to stick once you get fed up and run back to your old ways!
 
Have you ever tried a diet or nutrition plan that was full of foods you don’t like… and deprived you of the flavors & textures you love?
 
How long did it last?
A month?
A couple weeks?
Just a few days before you couldn’t take it anymore???
 
Here’s my stance on it. It’s apparently quite an unpopular opinion – but I’m sharing because it’s IMPORTANT!!! And it’s based on my education & also my experience, both personal and working with clients for the past 6 years to support them in healthy lifestyle shifts.
 
YOU. CAN. HAVE. BOTH!
 
You can eat for nutrition AND for taste!
 
You can ENJOY the experience of eating without guilt.
 
You can have food that is VISUALLY appealing and loaded with flavor, without sacrificing your health.
 
Healthy eating doesn’t need to be a punishment or a dreaded chore. It can be a fun & rewarding way to TREAT YOURSELF WELL. 💖
 
It can be an indulgent act of SELF-NURTURING & honoring the fact that YOU ARE WORTHY of being taken care of!

Recipe Notes

*I like Tumaros Garden Veggie wraps and also their Sun-dried Tomato wraps because they actually include VEGGIES in the ingredients! (Most 'veggie' tortillas are just dyed with artificial colors and have no actual veggies in them at all, unfortunately.) If you can't find those, this is a friendly reminder to check your labels! 

Leftover Mango-Avocado Salsa is delicious on top of a rice bowl with cooked brown rice & black beans. The lime juice in the salsa keeps the avocado from turning brown overnight.
