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:
coffee with half & half and homemade caramel
half a whole grain bagel with an egg and a slice of deli turkey
half a slice of salmon with 1/2C of rice pilaf
soft-serve made with coconut milk, chia seeds, and frozen strawberries and banana
half a serving of almonds
green salad with bacon
