Q&A With Garmin Ambassador Robin From Knead to Cook
Q: What are the first steps to eating healthy or making healthier food choices?
A: Start by making small changes to what you eat and drink. Take a big bottle of water with you to work. Drink as much water throughout the day as you can. Carry snack bags of veggies or fresh fruit with you. Always have an option that you can turn to instead of hitting up the vending machine or fast food restaurant. I personally started with one meal a day. Breakfast. I would make a smoothie or overnight oats and have it every single day. From there I incorporated more vegetables and fruits and less processed foods. One small step each day will get you to your goal.
A: I love gluten free rolled oats. Quinoa. Black rice. Baby carrots – so easy and no prep required. Salad greens, spinach or kale. Perfect for smoothies or for lunch. Nuts – great protein source. Pre-bag them for portion control too. Canned tomatoes are perfect for a quick marinara sauce or in soup. Bananas – eat them ripe or freeze them with the peel off for smoothies to last a long time.
A: Something as easy as a walk each day will help you to burn calories. This can be a sunrise walk with your favorite pup before work to a lunchtime walk with a friend or a relaxing walk after dinner. Take the stairs over the elevator. Daily stretching and yoga will help relax the mind and relieve stress. My favorite is running. Start with a run/walk combination if you’re new to it. Walk 3 minutes run 1. Then start to reduce the walking and build up the running. Commit to move your body for 10-15 minutes a few times a day.
