Every Wednesday, Susan Pierce Thompson, the founder of Bright Line Eating , puts out a weekly video blog. I’ll link to it below if you want to watch it.  The topic for the week was the place of Bright Line Eating recipes within the food plan.  This really piqued my interest.  In this prior post, I talked about how I’m learning to break away from the cookbook mentality but I started reflecting even more on this topic as a result of the vlog.  This is an important topic and it warrants a bit more time and energy, hence this post.

A 2 Ingredient Meatball Recipe

When I think of meatballs, I think of multiple proteins, breadcrumbs, a bunch of seasonings, and Parmesan cheese.   Some of the best meatballs I ever made were even mixed in my Kitchen Aid mixer.  Thus, I had low expectations when I first came across the Wildtree Garlic Salt Meatball recipe.  With just 2 ingredients, there was no way they could actually be good.

Wildtree releases new items a couple times each year and they never cease to amaze me with the thoughtful products they produce.  Everyone I came across was a bit perplexed by the marketing campaign they started at the beginning of February.  The timing was a bit unusual and they were teasing us with pictures of cacao beans, blueberries, and beets just to name a few. The reveal came on 2/15 when they announced the new line of Wildtree Shakes.

Be among the first to try them by clicking on the links below. There is no risk because Wildtree offers a satisfaction guarantee!

Potential Barriers to Eating Healthy – Convenience

Too busy to read this now or want to save it for later?

I recently polled people regarding the biggest challenges they face when it comes to eating healthy.

The first response I got was this: “My biggest challenge is convenience… if it takes less time to pop a frozen pizza in the oven than make a healthy salad, the pizza wins.” – Emma

I can definitely resonate with that!  Breaking the frozen pizza habit was a challenging one.  I was even content with eating the cheapo pizzas so it was convenient and relatively inexpensive.  A very nice combination! Not buying them anymore proved to be the only effective way to stop eating them.

No More Cookbooks Please!

I have tried a lot of “diets” and if there was a cookbook available, I at least seriously considered getting it. I think the first I bought was the South Beach Diet followed by the LA Weightloss Cookbook.  Several years later, I tried a 7 day intense cleanse and most recently, I bought the Fast Metabolism Diet Cookbook.  Also in the mix was a neat book called “How to Cook Without a Book” which I highly recommend if you want to learn to cook more easily.

What is a picture worth?

I took to Instagram a few weeks ago as a way to share what I’ve been eating on my food plan and to get ideas and inspiration.  I found that AND I also learned an important lesson.

There are a lot of people getting introduced to Bright Line Eating (www.brightlineeating.com) and there are more and more users on IG everyday sharing beautifully composed photos of tasty looking food.  Check out #brightlineeating and #brightlinebites if you are curious.  Some of the pictures look too good to eat.
