What do you find most difficult about eating healthy?

Eating healthy can be a challenge, let’s discuss why…

March 6, 2015

We all face different struggles when it comes to eating healthy. I want to hear about yours, so I have a question for you:

What is the greatest obstacle and/or challenge you face when it comes to eating healthy?

Become a part of this conversation by leaving a response in the comments section below, or on the Facebook page. Your responses will not only help me plan future posts, but also spark a network of awareness and support about the issues we face as mindful eaters.

There are myriad reasons for why I stray from eating healthy from time to time:

  • the cost of healthy food
  • availability of/access to ingredients
  • lack of ideas for innovative recipes
  • confusion about what’s healthy and what isn’t
  • irresistible temptation from unhealthy foods…

Now, add your own!

And I’m not referring to the occasional indulgence, we should all let loose at times and treat ourselves to otherwise “forbidden foods”. Rather, I want to hear about what you find the most difficult about eating healthy on a continual basis. For example, at times when I’ve let myself become too hungry, I’ll grab whatever food is convenient and ready to consume rather than taking the time to prepare myself a healthy, balanced meal.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I’ll leave you today with a simple dessert or breakfast idea for a winter orange salad to make before the clementines and blood oranges go out of season.

Winter Orange Salad

Winter Orange Salad
Recipe type: Breakfast, Dessert, Salad
  • Mix of Oranges (navel, cara cara, blood, clementines...)
  • Fresh Mint, leaves picked
  • Honey
  • Ground Cardamom
  1. Cut off the ends of the oranges, then use a knife to peel off the skins. Slice into rounds or segment into wedges.
  2. Arrange the fruit on a platter and intersperse with the mint leaves. Drizzle over the honey and sprinkle with a small amount of ground cardamom.

    This is gorgeous. 🙂 I just found your blog through Cake & Whiskey, and am enjoying it immensely. I think the greatest difficulty I find right now, is lack of energy to prepare what is good for me. I’m healing from mono/glandular fever, so energy is at a premium. But I’m finding success when I plan ahead, first thing in the morning when I have a brain. 🙂

      Thank you, Krista. I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog. That’s a very good point about planning ahead…it makes eating healthy at the end of the day much easier. I wish you the best with your recovery!
