Campbell’s Address Your Heart Recipes and Coupons

First off let me say, I am honored to be a part of the Campbell’s Address Your Heart Campaign. Eating healthy has not always been a concern of mine. In all honesty it wasn’t till a few years ago I started to really think about my everyday activities like exercise amount and what I actually consumed on a daily basis. For years I was a fast food – box meal junkie. There was no real moment of surprise, no illness or tragedy that changed my mind. I simply just became aware that I wanted to better my health and teach my children positive habits from the very beginning of life.

Now a few easy tips to help get you started from Mom to Bed by 8:

  1. Take control of the portion size. In a world of restaurant sized meals, those of us who did not grow up in a health conscious home, have no real idea of what a true proper portion size is. I mean come on the most popular steak size even sold in the grocery store is 6-8 oz. Would it be a surprise if I told you that was too much meat in one meal? In fact that is more than double the recommended meat portion. In fact you should only have 2-3 ounces {imagine a deck of cards}.
  2. Choose healthier selections. Go for more low-cal, nutrient-rich foods foods. These will not only be the better choice for your heart but also your weight in the long run.
  3. Eat those veggies. I grew up in a meat and potatoes home; so I understand how hard this maybe. Even now when I cook for my family I often only make one vegetable, one meat and one starch. This is a change I am still working on. It’s not that I don’t like vegetables. In fact I love, love, love them. Raw, baked, boiled and steamed! I think it is just a habit that I {and many other} have to work to break. Especially for those of you concerned with the loss of meat portion that you are use to. You can add an extra 1/2 cup of veggies or even fruit to make up for that. You will get the same full result without the unhealthy aspect of consuming excess meat and fats.
  4. Go whole grain. Brands are conscious of our world leaning more towards good choices in the grocery. You can even scoop up whole grain white breads and cereal options. This was one of my easiest diet changes when I started meal planning for my family. It is one of those that they never notice {unlike the mini meat – haha}.
  5. Strictly limit fatty foods. No one will every day me I can’t have my cake and eat it to but I make better choices even when choices a less than perfect food. I prepare my cakes and treats as well as fry my own meats and potatoes when called for. In doing this I control what goes into the cooking process. By changing simple things like type of oil, adding fruits instead of sugars, etc, I can still allow myself and my family something special without the 600 calorie cake slice.

In the end, just remember that you make your own food choices and you make those for your children. There are so many amazing resources like AddressYourHeart.com that provide delicious healthy recipes that contact easy to find ingredients, it is hard to go back to being the person that once was. I have grown to love being in the kitchen and getting my daughters in there with me. Seeing our hands work together to put a meal on the table we can be proud of is just something that I wouldn’t ever change. That hour – hour and a half it takes to prepare, serve and take a meal together is so precious to us as a family and knowing that I am teaching good, healthy habits makes me proud to be called a mom.
