One of my biggest challenges with nutrition is that I can’t cook (mostly because of vision). So the majority of my meals have been something you can put in the microwave. I’m sure that this means a lot of preservatives and a lot of other crap that’s not so good for you. And while I had fruits and vegetables around, that wasn’t what I reached for for snacks.
As the outdoor season is close, I decided to try two things – one being giving up the bagged snacks (pretzels, chips, etc.) for vegetables and fruits, the other being replacing at least 3 meals a week with fresh meat (typically chicken).
So far it seems to be working well. Thankfully I’ve got people to bring me fresh produce, as the closest grocery store charges 2-3 times reasonable prices. The first measuring stick of progress will be Leon’s on 6/5.
