Changing the way you eat can be overwhelming.
It's like organizing a very messy house. You look around and have no idea where to start. The closet that you're afraid of opening because all the boxes will fall out? The drawer with scissors, string, push pins, expired credit cards, and unpaid bills? The garage?
Faced with this overwhelm, most of us freeze up and do nothing.
But if you just tackle one thing, like that drawer, or the stack of dirty dishes and utensils in the sink, or your socks, then you can establish a “beach head” from which to attack the next area.
It's the same thing with dietary improvement. If you overhaul your pantry overnight, get a bunch of whole food, plant-based cookbooks, and hope to do a food 180 while still living your regular life, good luck!
But I wouldn't bet on your long-term, sustainable success.
Keep it simple
Instead, focus all your effort on one small area. Establish a tiny beach head of dietary excellence.
Start with one meal. The meal over which you have the most control. For most of us, that meal is breakfast.
It's time to institute a healthy breakfast habit. That's it. We're not going to worry about lunch or snacks or dinner or eating out or anything else. Just breakfast.
And we're going to pick one specific dish as the foundation: oatmeal.
(If you're avoiding gluten – like seriously avoiding it, then this isn't for you. You'll have to wait for the Smoothie Project.)
I've just created the first in a series of “Wee Step” reports. This one's called The Oatmeal Project, and it's a blueprint for transforming your breakfast into a daily nutritional powerhouse.
