Banish The Junk #MondayAtATime

Denise Austin Banish The Junk

Hi Everyone! Summer is coming, and we all want to look and feel our best. So an easy way to get rid of temptation is to get rid of the junk. Foods I’ll always have in my kitchen are parsley [high in vitamin C], quinoa [a high-protein whole grain], walnuts [good for heart health], olive oil and avocados [both are healthy fats]. I try not to have junk food in my kitchen at all, or I will see it and eat it. My favorite is ice cream, so when I really want it, we walk to the ice cream shop and get either a scoop of coffee ice cream, gelato or frozen yogurt. That way it’s perfectly portioned, unlike a carton of ice cream, which I could down in one sitting while mindlessly watching TV. I also usually have a dark-chocolate bar handy for a sweet-tooth attack — but a healthy one that is high in antioxidants and at least 70 percent real cocoa.

Love always from Your Personal Trainer,
