I love Leo Babauta’s blog at Zen Habits. In his recent post “The Spring Healthy Eating Challenge”, he offers an easy approach to getting our eating habits in line. Since I discovered a Vegan diet last year, I have found a new love for vegetables, spices, and whole foods. There is no question in my mind that eating more veggies and whole foods is better for our bodies and overall well-being. You don’t have to be Vegan or even a Vegetarian, like Leo Babauta said once, “… eat a crap load of veggies FIRST, then eat whatever you want”.
This post I had to share… enjoy!

With New Year’s Resolutions a fading memory, it’s time to renew your focus on eating healthy again.
With that in mind, I’m announcing a Spring Healthy Eating Challenge.
It’s designed to help you change your eating for the better, making small changes, and doing it with friends and family.
How does it work? It’s based on the principles I used to change my life, losing 70 lbs. over the course of a couple years, and keeping it off for about nine years now.
Here’s the challenge:
This is a general recipe for making small changes in your life, but healthy eating can be especially difficult, so I encourage you to do this challenge with your family and friends.
Small Healthy Eating Changes
What changes should you make? Here are some ideas for small changes.
Again, these are just a few ideas … you can make up your own!
