Physical – Activity: Make healthy food choices and track diet

Learn more about healthy nutrition and make healthy food choices.

I’ve discovered two templates at Google Docs that keep my recipes and menu plan at my fingertips, on the computer and on my smartphone. 1) Search “recipes” and choose the template by Mikelle Auman Williams. This template has tabs along the bottom for different categories of recipes. To print them two to a page I needed to insert a row at the bottom of each recipe. 2)Then search “vertex42 weekly meal planner” for the menu planner. Once I learned Google Docs has mobile apps, it blows any other note-taking app out of the water.

Track your diet this week…It’s been clinically proven that keeping track of what you eat is the #1 most effective method for controlling and reducing your daily caloric intake.

The goal for this week:

I will make healthy food choices by planning a healthy menu for the week on Sunday morning for this week. I will track the nutrition of the food I eat this week with a food diary.

This is one of the weekly activities for a Year of Personal Development.
