To feed a healthier foodie

I think food is my biggest challenge when it comes to getting healthier.  Mostly because I like food.  Lots.  Some people shop or watch tv or follow sports… I cook. (Okay, I shop too.)  And as a result, I eat.  So the challenge for me is finding ways to enjoy cooking and eating things with more veggies and protein and less sugar.  Healthy food can’t feel like a sacrifice.  And unhealthy food can’t feel like a reward.  Food can be delicious and good for me, or bland and bad for me, or vice-versa. 

So in that spirit, my food plan for today is:

Breakfast
coffee with half & half and homemade caramel
half a whole grain bagel with an egg and a slice of deli turkey

Lunch
edamame
half a slice of salmon with 1/2C of rice pilaf
soft-serve made with coconut milk, chia seeds, and frozen strawberries and banana

Snack
half a serving of almonds
tiny latte

Dinner
green salad with bacon

It’s shoe day over here…. Formal, casual, and everyone in between gets polished! And I finally got red polish for my one pair of red shoes and I’m never going back to clear. #shoes #shoepolish #angelus

Trying to pick clothes for a few weddings to attend… I need a cocktails dress, a “black tie optional” dress, and a dress for a more casual wedding.

can we start a movement that accepts the reality that weightlifting CAN, in fact, make women bulky, BUT THAT BEING BULKY IS NOT A BAD THING. so what? let’s stop being afraid of being bulky.

When I fall off the wagon I fall hard. No exercise at all this week, which is probably a good part of why I feel sluggish and tired. I need to work on what I’m eating as well…. I’m trying to figure out whether or not counting calories is the way to go for me.
