What inspired me this time, is that I've had a little bit of free time at work, and I'm reading a lot more blogs than usual. I've noticed that an unfortunately high percentage of healthy living bloggers rely on prepackaged, processed, gimmicky, "healthy" foods. And I won't call anyone out, because that's not the type of blog this is, but I've noticed the larger blogs, the monetized blogs, the people getting paid for it or sponsored with products are the ones eating this way. And in a smaller percentage of the blogs I've read that rely on these products, you would be hard-pressed to find even five servings of vegetables in a week of their food.
And I am a small blog, and I don't get paid, and I just want to live a really long time and be as healthy as possible. So that's my angle when it comes to telling you how I eat.
Yesterday (and remember that I do my own version of a diet loosely based on Paleo, but I do have a few items that fit my life and my body that are not Paleo included - i'm not a huge fan of following any prescribed diet to the letter, but making it fit you in a healthy way)
One serving of lactose free cottage cheese with a serving of frozen, organic blueberries, and sunflower seed butter drizzled on top (mmm I've eaten the same breakfast for about seven months now, it works perfectly to start my day)
Smoothie: flax seed milk, banana, pumpkin with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and a dash of honey
Spinach and tomato salad with avocado
Roast sweet potatoes with ground turkey, tomato, onion and mushrooms
One serving of pistachios
One serving of baby carrots
Huge serving of mashed rutabaga!
One grass fed beef burger with raw onion, tomato and lettuce
Half of a bar of organic dark chocolate with almonds
I'm able to eat a TON of food because it is bulked out with fibrous, high nutrition, low calorie veggies and fruit. I eat pretty much every 3ish hours.
I feel sated, energetic and happy eating this way :) it takes time to prep these foods - but it is soooo worth it! I never feel deprived.
Weighed in at the low end of my happy weight range this morning: 122.5
That's all for now <3
