What I’m Eating Lately
I keep mentioning that I’ve been eating pretty well, but not specifically. In case you were wondering (or at least for my own personal reference) it’s been something like this….
For the last 3 weeks, I’ve been trying to make my green smoothie for breakfast. It has roughly 40% of my recommended daily nutrition in it, so I try to make it a priority. That being said, I’ve been averaging 4-5 of these a week, since weekends and laziness happen. :P Ingredients:
- 2 cups kale
- 1 apple
- 1 banana
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 2 tbls chai seeds
- 1(ish) cup of almond milk
Lunch originally was a bunch of raw veggies and dip, 2 boiled eggs, a big whole wheat cracker, and some almonds. Lately I’ve been either pushing back the green smoothie till lunch or not eating between breakfast and dinner at all (if I’m busy) so now I’ve been adding all the veggies and dip to my dinner and dropping everything else.
Unless it’s the weekend or I’m away from home, this is always an Amy’s brand, frozen vegetarian dinner. Considering the rest of my day is kind of boring in the food department, I really look forward to these. :P Frozen dinners aren’t the best, I know, but these are organic and I can identify everything in the ingredients list. Good enough for me right now, lol. There’s nights I end up eating an extra one of these a few hours later (probably those days where I’m accidentally skipping lunch) but I’m working on that.
During the week, I have a pretty easy time not snacking and I don’t really crave junk food or sugar at all. I do usually have coffee with artificial sugar though. I’m letting that be my main vice, but I’ll get off the stuff eventually probably. I’ve been completely free of soda (regular and diet) this whole time too. As for adding more good stuff, I try to drink a class of green tea in the morning, and I’m hoping to start drinking kava tea before bed. :)
I’m switching breakfast to half a grapefruit and 2 boiled eggs (more portable when I’m in a hurry). Then I’ll do the green smoothie for lunch, and then I’ll continue adding the raw veggies to my dinner. I was going to do this today, but I completely skipped lunch again and didn’t add veggies to supper either. Not very hungry now, but I’ll make sure to do better tomorrow.
Anywho! I feel like that was kind of boring, but there it is! The end. :D
