Oh, well hello! I'm making my way back to the blog after taking a few weeks off to focus on other projects. Today, I want to share one of the many things I've been focusing on while I've been away! Healthy eating!
It's been a major goal of mine for the past few years to improve my eating habits. I'm getting a little bit older (I'm 24 lol) and I know I need to improve my lifestyle in order to stay strong and healthy.
Most days I manage to get 3 meals + a snack. I will make breakfast after my morning run, lunch around 1:00pm and have dinner around 8:00pm. I try to add in either a morning or late night snack when I can. And by snack, I mean frozen fruit or the occasional cookie. If you're not eating frozen peaches and grapes, you're missing out!
I plan my meals around what I purchase at the grocery store. I make sure to always grab at least a few veggies like kale, broccoli, and/or zucchini. I've started adding sweet potatoes and yellow squash to my basket as well! Once I grab my veggies, I grab a few pieces of fruit, like apples and pears before I head over to pick up chicken or fish. Then, I navigate my way to the frozen food section to pick up frozen peaches and my new favorite, sweet potato fries! The fries are low in sugar and have few carbs. Occasionally I'll pick up lean turkey or chicken sausage if it's priced well. It's a great substitute for when I'm tired of eating chicken or fish.
As often as I talk about juicing, I also enjoy eating my greens in their solid state! You'll always find a few veggies on my plate during lunch and dinner. Squash and zucchini are my two go-to vegetables, but I've recently started "roasting" kale + broccoli tossed in olive oil in foil packets in the oven. So, so, so good. I'm learning that what goes in my body is very important. I can't gorge out on chips every afternoon and hope my morning run and breakfast of egg whites and turkey sausage will help tackle the calories! No way! That's not to say I won't eat chips when I'm craving them-- instead I'll just eat a small handful...not half a bag! Everything in moderation, right!?
I'll be posting some step-by-step guides on here for some of my favorite go-to meals so be sure to check back later!
