Last week I received a reader’s request from a good friend of mine to do a post on my workout/health routine. And although I haven’t had a chance to get my workout routine going (I swear it’s on my to do list!), I have made better choices with my diet. While I’m not Catholic, I did attend a Catholic high school (V-house!!) and practice lent; mainly to challenge my discipline. This year for lent I decided to give up….pause for dramatic effect….fast food! And let me tell you, the struggle has been way too real. I love burgers and fries and oh man I’ve been craving them both. I decided to not deprive myself but to seek other alternatives.
To fill the void of fast food I made a turkey cheeseburger using multi-grain sandwich thins instead of a bun, 2% cheese, and strawberries instead of fries. The strawberries were also a substitute for dessert. I must admit this definitely satisfied my craving. Next week I can eat fast food again but I’m hoping to eat A LOT less of it and to incorporate more healthy alternatives. I’m a work in progress and I’ll be sure to share my findings along the way.
