Healthy Eating Just for Today

When someone encourages healthy eating, the first thing that comes to mind is "Oh, no!" That dreaded term is often equated to relegating yourself to eating foods that taste like styrofoam packing peanuts. We will never taste again! Much to my surprise, I realized that eating healthy can actually taste great.

Healthy Eating

As always, change is never easy. The greatest obstacle for me was (and continues to be) programming my mind. I faced challenges on both fronts:

1. eating healthy foods that taste good and

2. Eating enough to feel full. After all, the main point of eating is to satiate hunger.


In terms of taste, I find that eating low fat alternatives (eg: low fat mayonnaise) works much better for me than fat free. I find that fat free items usually lack in taste and rarely give me that full feeling. One exception is Greek yogurt. I find that fat free Greek yogurt is quite exceptional. I tend to favor healthy items that can fill the void left by avoiding potatoes and bread.


Enter the cauliflower!


Growing up, I could hardly finish a serving of the dreaded vegetable. It was usually boiled and served as is - YUCK! I remember sitting at the table in my pajamas crying over a plate of the stuff. Now, I have come to love it. Cauliflower is healthy and diverse in its uses. I will share with you my recipe for Cauliflower Mashed "Potatoes". It works great as a side or main dish.


Healthy Eating:
Ted's Cauliflower Mashed "Potatoes"

1Head Fresh Cauliflower
1/2 cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 or 2 cloves minced garlic (optional)
2 tbs olive oil
2 tsp dry oregano
1/3 cup bread crumbs
Coarse Sea Salt & Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
1 fresh lemon cut in wedges


Begin by cutting up head of cauliflower into 3 inch pieces and add to a pot of boiling water.

Boil cauliflower until fork tender, remove cauliflower and place it in a large frying pan that has the 2 tbs of olive oil.

Add minced garlic and let cook over medium high heat until garlic loses its bite.

Break up the cauliflower into smaller pieces with a spatula as it cooks.

Add bread crumbs to thicken if needed, add oregano, salt and pepper to taste.

Remove from heat and place all pan contents into a mixing bowl.

Add Greek yogurt and mix until smooth.

Add a squeeze of fresh lemon and serve while hot.


This recipe will leave you feeling full. It goes great with just about anything. Give it a try! Remember, healthy eating does not have to involve eating
things that aren't delicious. Necessity is the mother of invention - be creative and experiment with new ingredients!


Here's to healthy eating!

Healthy Eating Hypnosis: Reprogram Your Brain


Healthy Eating Hypnosis is the best way to train your mind to choose to eat healthy foods as a matter of course.

  • Are you fed up with losing weight and then putting it back on again?
  • Do you find it a struggle to maintain a healthy eating regime?

That word - "regime'"- may be the culprit. It can have the same effect on you as the word "routine." These words suggest being hard on yourself. Making rules. Punishing yourself if you go "off the rails." It makes the whole business of getting to and maintaining a healthy weight seem like so much hard work. You can keep it up for a while, but then you just get exhausted!

And once you have fallen off, you are more likely to say to yourself, "What's the point? I'll never manage it!" And then you swing in the opposite direction and over-indulge yourself. Unfortunately, the consequences of that don't exactly make you happy either, do they?

  • Do you need more will power to eat healthy foods?
  • How do you get out of this? Do you just need more will power?

Of course, will power plays a vital role when it comes to making important decisions in your life. If you want to turn things around in your life, you know that you need will power to make the decision to start, and will power to persevere with all the steps required to implement and maintain the changes that you make. So developing your will power is clearly a useful thing to do.


How junk foods can overpower your will

But when it comes to choosing to eat healthy foods, you've already encountered the weak link in the will power approach. Something about that particular moment of choice is stronger than your will. Isn't that what it feels like? Almost as if you've been hijacked. As if the choice for the unhealthy food has been made behind your own back. How does this happen?

When you have a sudden strong desire for something that's right in front of you, it is like being hypnotized. You've heard of hypnotized people experiencing amnesia, "forgetting" things that they know. This is what those deliciously attractive junk foods can do to you. They make you forget something very important - your future. In that moment, all you can think of is the satisfaction you will enjoy now. It's very hard to resist.

The good news is that you can deliberately use hypnosis to remember.


Hypnosis can help you naturally choose to eat healthy foods

Healthy Eating Hypnosis is an audio weight loss hypnosis session created by psychologists experienced in the field of weight management. It is not a diet plan (you already have more than enough of those). It is a tool for ensuring that your brain can no longer be hijacked by those tempting (but detrimental) goodies without your consent.

As you listen regularly to your Healthy Eating Hypnosis session, you'll find that you...

  • feel stronger and calmer in yourself
  • notice your will power developing like muscles trained in the gym
  • sense a growing determination to take proper care of yourself
  • keep your long term goals steadily in mind
  • occasionally "have a treat" without losing control
  • readily and easily choose the healthier options for yourself

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.

CHANGE YOUR MIND AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE!>>>
