Is the food in your house set up to encourage healthy eating??

What changes can you make to make it easier to eat protein forward?

It is not really.  Foods in my house are much healthier than they were before surgery but I have been slacking off lately.

I am going to give serious thought to the ways to improve and will comment later.

Name Alice

Is the food in your house set up to encourage healthy eating?? I have all the healthy food I should in my house but I have let junk food back in the house with the pregnancy and especially the 3rd trimester when the size of the baby has made it hard to eat real food in any quantity

What changes can you make to make it easier to eat protein forward? My meals have all remained protein forward for the most part but my snacks have turned into 1/2 a bagel toasted with cream cheese since it's easy to digest and simple to make and tastes good to me!  I am concerned that as a nursing mom I will be starving and grab whatever is easiest to eat which at the moment we have too many sweets in the house so they need to go!

Name Pat

Is the food in your house set up to encourage healthy eating?? Yes, for the most part. I did buy some sugar free chocolate yesterday for a craving. I find if I eat a little of something I crave it gets rid of the craving where if I ignore it  it gets bigger and bigger until 1 piece of candy becomes a bag or a king size bar. Mostly I have fresh fruit and protein bars, though.

What changes can you make to make it easier to eat protein forward? Keep doing protein bars or shakes as a snack, don't eat bread, I seem to gain at least a pound overnight when I do and I only do wheat / whole grain bread. I do well ignoring for the most part, but some days it doesn't work.
