Here's the secret. I write "7" in my daily planner. Then every time I eat a 1/2 cup serving of fruits or veggies I leave a tick mark. Once I get to "7" I consciously check-in with myself and say how thankful I am for this nutritious and mostly local and organic food. I leave it at that.
The results are happening, in progress, real. My body feels good. No aches and pains. Fewer wheat cravings. Desiring less salt. I am younger by the pound. I'm not needing much dairy and to hell with caffeine these days!
