How I’m Eating These Days

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

(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?
