For the past month I have made an effort to take better care of myself. This wasn't a New Year's resolution (I don't like resolutions) but rather a lifestyle change. God gave me a healthy, functioning body, and I felt it was time to start taking better care of it. Some of the changes I've made include:

- exercising daily (Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred or yoga)
- drinking more water
- making healthy food choices

These changes have invigorated and inspired me to push my body and to nourish myself with wholesome foods. It's been almost a month since I've had chips and soda. In addition, the only chocolate I've consumed is dark chocolate (a daily treat that I look forward to).

One of my recent favourite snacks are lettuce wraps. These delicious little morsels have become a staple in our house. Essentially, it's a sandwich but with a lettuce leaf instead of bread. The contents are scooped into the middle of a romaine lettuce leaf and then rolled up.
Our lettuce wraps have contained the following:
- egg salad (made with egg whites)
- cooked and shredded chicken breast, with peppers and snap peas
- snap peas, peppers, cucumber and grape tomatoes
- tuna salad
They are so delicious (and healthy too)! An added bonus... my four-year-old daughter loves them!
