A few days ago, I realized that in the midst of a hectic schedule, my daily diet became less than healthy. I was inadvertently skipping meals and dinners often consisted of veggies followed by candy. I’ve never particularly liked dinner foods–I’d much rather have a small bowl of ice cream rather than a burger–but a sugar-laden meal does not equate to a dinner, obviously.
Living a healthy lifestyle is a time-consuming commitment, though the extra effort is worth it the end. Since I’ve been making a conscious attempt to eat more balanced meals this week, I thought I would participate in “What I Ate Wednesday.” Created by Jenn of Peas and Crayons, WIAW is a way to get new ideas by sharing a day of food with others, as well as to focus on any patterns in your routine.
Thomas’ Light English Muffin with one tablespoon of chunky peanut butter (I use Trader Joe’s plain peanut butter–no sugar or salt is added) and one sliced banana on top.
Blueberry Chobani yogurt and a small serving of pistachios.
I overstuffed my omelet and made it exactly like the ones that I had in Curacao, the only difference being that a chef didn’t make it for me (and there was no coconut turnover on the side…bummer).
I normally would have had a protein shake after my workout in the afternoon, but I skipped the gym and went to the mall instead.
Zucchini meatloaf and Brussels sprouts. I used 96% lean ground beef and followed this recipe pretty closely to make my meatloaf.
(You do not need to see a gross-looking picture of my own meatloaf.)
Two blocks of Trader Joe’s 72% dark chocolate.
Have you noticed any unhealthy eating habits in your daily diet lately?
Does seeing what other people eat interest you?
