Wow.  January is, like, over. Done. Bye Bye! One Bombcyclone, several below 10 degree days, a few podcast episodes in the can, and many nights of staying in to Netflix ‘N Chill with Mr E helped pass the cold days. For the final addition in my NEW-trition Goals for the New Year series, I wanted to address something that is definitely becoming as much of a food trend as it is a health and environmental matter. As I wrote about in my FNCE recap, plant-based protein is where it’s at this year. So, without further ado, I present to you NEW-trition Goal for the New Year #4: LEAN OUT THE MEAT

A recent study of those undergoing weight loss surgery were found to have greater success when their partner was involved in the process.  Weight loss surgery is not a simple one and done approach.  Many factors play into the decision to have surgery, as well as recovery and overall lifestyle changes.  It can be very emotionally and physically draining.  Having a strong support system, especially from your significant other, is so important to overall success in weight loss surgery.  Having your partner involved, including visits to doctors and dietitians, will help with the stress of surgery (along with pre and post concerns).  And if you haven’t found that special someone yet, a close friend will do the trick.

If the plan is to eat chips with guac and chase it with a margarita for Date Night, you and your significant other may want to rethink your plans to include some more substantial foods into your celebration plans. And just keep driving past Taco Bell. Unless you want to spend Seis de Mayo with that wonderful combo of being bloated AND dehydrated at the same time. Continue reading “Grilled Tropical Salsa”
