I have been posting lately about being busy and not having the time to eat right and exercise and I wanted to touch a little more on that. Every single day every single person is fighting a battle within them, so never feel like you are the only one struggling with something. The fact that you got out of bed today is proof enough that you are a fighter, so keep going.
Taking the time to care about yourself and what you are putting into your body is really important. Do you ever stop to read the ingredients before you put something in your shopping cart? I do and I always wonder what the heck some of those things are. It kind of makes me mad that companies can put those poisonous things in the things we eat. Be smart when you shop and take the time to consider what you are putting into your body! I like to buy pretty much everything organic and yes I know there is much controversy about if organic really is better, but I know for a fact that organic is better for you. Organic might cost more but your body is important so be conscious of that.
"Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple."
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
This verse says it all.
Take care of yourself!
If you are struggling with getting healthy, know that you are not alone. I have been struggling for years now. It just takes time and consistency. Time is never really on my side it seems and I just always have to tell myself that "Rome wasn't built it a day."
On to the point of this post...
I wanted to share with you a simple lunch/snack that literally takes no time to make!
Avocado Bacon Roll Ups
- 4 slices of lunch meat (I use central market honey ham)
- 2 slices of bacon
- 1 avocado
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp sea salt
Place four slices of lunch meat on a plate. Break the two pieces of cooked bacon in half and place in the center of each piece of meat. Top with mashed avocado.
Mash one avocado in a bowl mix in pepper, cumin and sea salt
and stay focused
