I am unhealthy and I am unhappy about it. I want to make a change (and have tried numerous times in the past on my own) but sometimes I struggle with stay power. I am extremely motivated for the first few days and then my gusto tapers off. What suggestions do you all have to keep up that motivation? How can I make this a life-long and improve my lifestyle forever?
My family is italian and we have a family recipe for italian dressing. It includes balsamic vinegar, olive oil, red wine vinegar, a little water, oregano, basil, cumin, salt and pepper, and anchovy paste. It is half red wine vinegar (approx. 1 cup), several table spoons of the balsamic vinegar (depends on quality/strength of balsamic on how much should be used, go by taste), a table spoon of water (smooths out the dressing), and then about half the amount of red wine vinegar of olive oil (approx. ½ cup). The spices are all to taste, my suggestion would be go light on the anchovy past though. Keep it under a tablespoon. This should produce about 2 and a half or 3 cups of dressing. I know it is a lot of ingredients, but it is worth it. It takes fantastic.
