I’ve recently discovered a personal annual trend… Year after year, I find myself slipping from my healthy eating plan somewhere between Valentine’s Day and Easter.

The promise of chocolate hearts and chocolate bunnies is just too much for me, and I spiral into a habit of making way too many allowances in my diet. Later I dig myself out of the naughty rut I’ve created with lots of salad and lean protein.

Anyone share this recurring problem?

This year, I’ve caught myself early.

I’m suddenly aware of the junky snacks and chocolate sneaking their way into the pantry in greater volumes, and I’m putting a stop to it right now.

This week I threw out cookies from the freezer, leftover Valentine’s Day candy hiding behind my canned goods, and several boxes of highly processed snacks. Then I went to ALDI to stock up (and save money) on healthy snack foods, fresh produce, and ingredients to make lighter dinners.

The pop of cool crisp cucumbers, sweet mango, and strawberries in the quinoa, perfectly balance the basil pesto on the chicken.

Although this easy dinner is healthy, it is far from boring! Huge wow-factor comes from ample color, textures, and contrasting flavors.
