It has been close to two years now since I start what I consider my transformation with a goal of losing weight and getting healthy. It has had its ups and downs just like life but I am still going strong. While losing weight is one of my goals, more importantly, is doing it and becoming healthier. What does healthier mean to me? It means good HDL cholesterol and low LDL cholesterol. It means blood pressure at or under the recommended levels. It means low glucose levels with no indications of pre-diabetes. It means a healthy heart and healthy living. Exercise and diet play a MAJOR role in becoming healthier.
So one thing over the past two years I have been working at is finding healthier ways to eat. I am not the best cook, which means I can’t just “whip” something up. Instead, I need to find recipes and keep trying them until I find something I like. I always review the ingredients in a recipe to see just how healthy it is and I lean towards higher protein recipes. Naked Nutrition sent me this Healthy Rice Crispy Treat Recipe using their Rice Protein Powder.
