Good morning everyone, I hope your all having a great weekend so far! I loved reading all about your October goals in my previous post. Feel free to leave a comment and share yours if you haven't already. :)
I spent my Saturday at home, went grocery shopping with my mom and took a nap. I haven't been in the mood for much lately. I’ve been struggling with ED thoughts these past couple of days but I’m not going to let them take over again! I’m trying to stay positive and trying to listen to my body.
I have been trying to add some more variety to my meals and so far so good. Here are some of my recent eats: (these are not all my eats, just some of them that I took pictures of!)
Two slices of whole wheat bread topped with cream cheese and turkey deli meat, with a fresh kiwi on the side. This is one of my go to lunches when I’m busy or in the mood for something simple. Yum!
I know, I know, Summer is over but I really love fresh berries so who says I cant enjoy them during the Fall? I will keep buying fresh berries at the grocery store until they don’t sell them anymore. Then I will stock up on frozen berries to help me survive the Winter! :)
I am really loving Kay’s Naturals protein cereal! Who says I have to eat it outta a bowl with milk? It’s tasty even right out of the bag, topped on oatmeal or in yogurt!
Who says I cant eat out of an almost empty yogurt container so I don’t have to worry about washing dishes afterwards? I love adding random cereal, mixed nuts, chocolate chips etc. to an almost empty yogurt container with a splash of Alpro Soya light milk. So good! :)
Who says you cant go crazy with yogurt toppings and mix ins? In the bowl: Greek yogurt, peanuts, walnuts, Kellogg’s Special K cereal, frozen raspberries, fresh strawberries, cinnamon and dark chocolate chips. This was enjoyed whilst reading blogs. :)
I have been loving this lunch lately! I topped two pieces of rye bread with PB2, banana slices and cinnamon with baby carrots on the side. This actually keeps me full for about 2/3 hours and then I have another small meal.
During my ED days I would read things online or in magazines like “don’t eat carbs for dinner, only protein because it burns more fat”, or “always eat some protein with carbs” and the list goes on. I believed that and wouldn’t dare eat carbs without some protein!
Now, I realize how stupid that was and that everything I read in those magazines or on the internet where just a bunch of lies. This past Summer, I understood that it was totally fine to eat carbs (without protein!) for dinner…it’s not going to kill me!
We should not be scared of food, it shouldn’t control our lives! Food is not our enemy, it’s fuel for our bodies.
