When I decided that fitness would be my new year resolution, I knew that the journey would be interesting and fun. I’ve been trying new things to stay in shape and to gain lean muscle. For the past two weeks, I’ve been working out three to four days a week. The workouts consist of playing basketball for 30-45 minutes, running 1 1/2-3 miles, and/or bike riding for 1-2 hours (depending on weather and destination). My weight goes up and down between 135-141, but I’m still gaining muscle definition. I’m becoming more curvy; slim curvy.

Today’s Lunch

img_0883

Today’s lunch consisted of the healthy foods you see in the photo above. Below I will discuss with you why  I chose the following foods and why they are good for you.

Fish

Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats.

Fish help maintain cardiovascular health by playing a role in the regulation of blood clotting.
Fish may reduce tissue inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Fish may play a beneficial role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), reducing depression and halting mental decline in older people.

Yogurt

Eating yogurt is one of the most common ways to consume the healthy bacteria beneficial to the gut known as probiotics. Probiotics are effective in regulating the digestive system and decreasing gas, diarrhea, constipation and bloating.

Yogurt may reduce the risk of high blood pressure.

Yogurt may help you feel fuller.

Celery

Celery is an excellent source of vitamin K and molybdenum. It is a very good source of folate, potassium, dietary fiber, manganese and pantothenic acid. Celery is also a good source of vitamin B2, copper, vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and vitamin A.

Celery reduces inflammation.

It helps you calm down.

Carrots 

Carrots are a rich source of this powerful antioxidant, which, among other vital uses, can be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin. 2. Digestion: Carrots increase saliva and supply essential minerals, vitamins and enzymes that aid in digestion.

Carrots kill harmful germs in the mouth and help prevent tooth decay.

The nutrients in carrots can improve the health of your eyes, skin, hair, nails and more through helping to detoxify your system and build new cells.

Cucumbers 

Cucumbers are an excellent source of vitamin K and molybdenum. They are also a very good source of the pantothenic acid. They are also a good source of copper, potassium, manganese, vitamin C, phosphorus, magnesium, biotin and vitamin B1.

They also contain the important nail health-promoting mineral silica.

Rehydrates body and replenishes daily vitamins.

Fight cancers.

Relieves bad breath.

Hangover cure (Ha!)

Aids in weight loss.

Strawberries

Nutritional highlights. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K as well as providing a good dose of fibre, folic acid, manganese and potassium.

Strawberries promote eye health.

Strawberries help fight cancer.

Strawberries keep wrinkles at bay.
