As I mentioned I’m eating more these days. I’ve been slowly increasing my calories (100-200 every week or so) so my body can adjust easier to eating more on a regular basis. I’ve been hitting my goal each day and often exceeding it which is fine by me:) So today I thought I’d share a day of eats with you so you can see how I’m nourishing my body with not only healthful food but some treats as well.
~1/5 cups of organic (non-gmo) cheerios + 2 bananas + couple spoonfuls of crunchy peanut butter + fresh almond milk
Lunch was one of my favorite salads. Well my version of it anyway:) Included in the salad was spinach+kabocha squash+raw buckwheat+tempeh+blueberries+zucchinni+1/2 avocado+a tahini dressing. The dressing is excellent (I like to add a little lemon juice to mine) and it’s super filling.
1/2 avocaod and a sliced cucumber all sprinkled with this vegan parmesan
This dinner was excellent. I need to make it again:)
(sorry for the blurry photo!) After dinner Dom suggested we get some ice cream so I went with it! I wasn’t super hungry but I had a small bowl with some more peanut butter and cinnamon and it was perfect:)
Letting go of my food rules has been amazing! Before starting my journey to really heal my body and repair my metabolism I tended to avoid having sugary treats during the week and I would not have them very often (once every several weeks maybe) and I would generally eat a little too much of it and feel sick the next day. Now that I’m allowing myself to eat what I want, when I want I don’t feel the need to eat myself sick when I do have a meal higher in sugar than I would normally eat. I was completely satisfied with a smaller serving this time. (although I’m totally ok with a bigger serving too) I’ve had coconut milk ice cream probably 4ish times in the past 2 weeks and guess what I feel great! And it’s been fun being more laid back and really just enjoying a treat with my husband!
So there you have it. A pretty typical day of my meals lately.
I hope everyone has a great 4th of July!
What’s been one of your favorite meals lately?
Any fun plans for the 4th?
