I’ve had a bit of a rough weekend foodwise, but luckily I’m back on track again today and my mind is feeling a bit more normal once again.
After my morning workout (today was a treadmill and abs kind of day), I grabbed an apple before heading off to church.
I guess I must have still been full from all the food I consumed yesterday because this was all I needed to keep me going until my late lunch.
Needless to say, I was quite excited to eat lunch – finally creating a wholesome meal was exactly what my body was in desperate need of.
I enjoyed half of a butternut squash and on the side, a few handfuls of spinach and 1/2 cup of canned mushrooms sautéed with 1/4 tomato and garlic powder.
Canned mushrooms aren’t the most delicious, but with the right seasonings you can make it work!
Hunger kicked in not too long after lunch, so I grabbed some celery sticks and 2 tablespoons of almond butter.
It’s been an entire week since I last had almond butter and I’m going to do my best to make this jar last me 3 weeks.
Dinner was also quite fantastic too.
My chicken breast was seasoned with sea salt, black pepper, loads of garlic powder and my newest exploration – powdered ginger!
The garlic-ginger chicken sat on top of a basic salad (1/2 cucumber, 1/4 tomato, baby carrots and lettuce) and was accompanied by some blue corn chips.
All in all, a pretty good day. Today (after spending almost an entire weekend dealing with food overload) I realize that there are few things better than providing your body with wholesome, satisfying meals…Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a binge to remind me of how great I feel when I respect my body and hunger. Hopefully I’ll soon be permanently free of these poor eating habits and will continue to love my body in the way that it deserves.
