We are entering week 2 of the 28-Day Healthier You Challenge!
So far we have talked about the benefits of keeping a food journal, replacing unhealthy temptations with healthy ones, adding variety and finding new ways to eat healthy, using spices instead of salt to season foods, staying properly hydrated with something like fruited water, stopping eating a few hours before bed, and figuring out your emotional triggers. All of these are tiny changes, but when added together can really lead to a healthier you!
Day 8 Mini-Challenge: Brush your teeth after every meal.
While oral health is tied to physical health, that is not why I made this today’s challenge. This challenge has some psychological background. I used to have a neighbor who once she brushed and flossed at night, nothing could tempt her to indulge. Even creme brulee topped with raspberries, a dessert I used to make WAY too much.
If you brush your teeth after each and every meal you will be less tempted to snack!
If this mini-challenge is not enough to get you to brush after every meal, consider some of these 25-reasons you should be brushing more.
For today’s recipe, I tried to think of something that I can almost never stop eating: Crock Pot Pork Tacos with Fresh Pico
If I don’t brush my teeth I eat until it huts because they just taste soooo good.
The fresh and light taste of the pico adds to the sweet juicy pork, and the crisp corn tortilla and creamy avocado makes for a little fiesta in my mouth!
This is a crowd pleaser. We frequently make this for guests and family. And can you see why? It is amazing! Great served with a salad with a creamy tomatilla dressing, corn, beans, and rice.
