This is my typical breakfast. I cannot start the day without two cups of coffee with half and half. I workout in the morning, so I don’t want a lot in my stomach but skipping breakfast is not an option!
I’m trying to eat more protein these days so I tend to choose high protein yogurts and also make sure I’m starting the day with enough water. This allows for plenty of energy and hydration for a good workout without feeling stuffed.
For a mid-morning pick-me-up I sometimes opt for a piece of fruit. This combo of banana and almond butter might not look so appetizing but it is delish!
Again, I drink water for hydration post workout.
I love a salad full of goodies for lunch! I gave up putting oil on my salads long ago. I don’t miss it at all and I definitely don’t miss the added calories and fat! Red wine vinegar (just a splash) works great if I need a “dressing.”
I add all kinds of veg from fresh tomatoes to steamed broccoli – whatever I can find that’s fresh in the veggie drawer! I always add a protein too. In this pic, I added two hard boiled eggs and mixed in some chickpeas to make the salad hearty and filling. Pair this salad with some berries and a bit of bread and I’m good for a while!
I love fish and never get sick of eating it. Here is grilled salmon with roasted eggplant, broccoli and mushrooms.
Add some grilled squash and just a bit of pasta and it’s a light, healthy and satisfying dinner!
I would be lying if I said I ate healthy all the time! Everything in moderation has always been my motto and that goes for “junk” too. I adore ice cream, cake, cookies and cheese along with many other “taboo” foods. I’m not about to avoid these treats all the time but I do try to keep it in check.
If I go overboard, which I have been known to do, I cut back on snacks and bread for a few days. (This is Edy’s slow churned – not bad and less fat and calories.)
