WHY I CHOSE THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
I'm Erika and I live with my family in Chicago. Ever since I was 6-7 years old I got into sports. My main sport was swimming. During my school years I became very competitive and starting joining clubs. I wasn't too strict on my diet. After my practices I would crave something unhealthy. Like a burger or pizza. Luckily, it wasn't noticeable when I would eat unhealthy since I would practice twice a day 4 hours and 1 hour in the weight room.
When I finished my career as an athlete it's when I started feeling weird and my body started changing. I wasn't feeling as hungry as I use to but I knew I had to eat something because I couldn't go the whole day without eating. If I ate a pizza or burger like I use to then I would get bloated. I started working out but it wasn't the same as before but I still had to do something.
I started working out for 1-2 hours a day and after make myself a smoothie. I would add oats and other fruits as well. I noticed I wasn't hungry till like dinner time and my body was feeling better.
As a result, I start creating more recipes that involved oats as well other ingredients and did researched how it can benefit our bodies to stay fit and healthy!
THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Creating this book has been a true inspiration not only to me but to those who have been on the path of the healthy lifestyle. By making a smoothie or a bowl can certainly make a difference not only to your body but to your lifestyle.
To those who struggle with eating or want to loose a couple pounds. You don't have to be on a certain diet or torture yourself just to loose 1 or 2 pounds. Just cut down on the unhealthy foods and replace it with a simple smoothie or a snack that will make a difference.
For fun recipes read more about in it on my book "THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE" where the recipes take less than 20 minutes to prepare.
EASY, SIMPLE & HEALTHY
