I made it a goal to get healthier last year after letting myself slide a little. I am at a very comfortable weight and don’t want or need to lose any more, but I do want to maintain my weight. I don’t actively keep track of my calories the way I did last year, but I still try to keep myself in check.
I’ve learned that I need to let myself have treats here and there because for me, it’s the best way to keep my diet at a level I can maintain. I don’t eat perfectly and often don’t cook a big dinner during the week. Yesterday was a day where I was not trying super hard to eat fancy health food or be a perfect eater…I was trying to eat mostly healthy but with a few treats. This is a snapshot of my meals yesterday – excuse the poor photo quality as they were taken with my tablet!
Breakfast – (9:00 a.m.) sliced organic apple, hemp seeds, protein dip (PB2 powdered peanut butter mixed with Tera’s Whey and a small spoonful of natural peanut butter), coffee with stevia and a splash of organic half & half
Treat – (1:00 p.m) 1 small square of organic chocolate, cup of Earl Grey tea with stevia
Afternoon Snack – (4:00 p.m.) 5 slices of Tofurky, water
Evening Snack – (8:00 p.m.) one clementine
So there you have it! Totally random day of food. I do typically eat fruit and/or vegetables at every meal because I’m a vegetarian, but I also love the taste of fruit and vegetables and how I feel when I eat them.
What is a typical healthy meal for you?
