Eat Right Week 3 | SSMT


Part of loving yourself is not just pampering your feet, and of course filling up your spirit, but also taking care of your body...

Eat Right Week 3: Keep eating your salad, fruit, veggies, and drinking water!  Also add into the mix BEANS and KALE daily!

Your Action Plan (Beans): (from EatRightAmerica.com) Easiest way to add beans is to open a can of unsalted beans and add them to a salad, or use a low-sodium canned soups that is made with plenty of beans. Or, you can cook dried beans in water and some seasonings and cook them on a low flame for an hour to make soft. The easiest way to make beans is to just add the dried beans directly to your soups. If you have trouble digesting beans, chew them well and start with smaller beans such as adzuki, lentils, mung beans and peas. Adding fennel or cumin also can help prevent gas.
