Nothing Canned, Boxed…A Long-Ago Diet Change Has Proven Helpful
“That made it pretty difficult, trying to find the right foods to feed them,” recalls Linda. “So it was just easier for the whole household to be on the same diet.”
On a typical day, breakfast for Linda may be steel-cut oatmeal, a bagel with organic peanut butter, or eggs. Lunch is very light, perhaps carrots, celery, a couple pieces of cheese, or a cup of soup. Dinner is a small serving of fish or chicken with brown rice and lots of salad.
“Sometimes dinner can just be salad,” she adds.
To those who desire to implement a healthy change to their diet, Linda says,“The simplest thing you can do that isn’t going to cost you money or take any time is to not add sugar to anything. It’s a slow thing; you can’t just stop all of a sudden. Just reduce the amount of sugar to zero. And try not to eat more than 40 grams of carbohydrates a day,” she adds, stating that carbohydrates break down into sugar inside the body. “If people did that, that would make a huge difference.”
