AUSTIN, TEXAS — Day One of ‘doing the right thing food-wise’ has come and gone.
I woke up feeling ‘clear’ and ready to take on DAY TWO.
I’ve been asked, ‘What I’m doing with this food-thing?’
Hopefully, sharing this adds some value.
So, I thought I’d review yesterday…
Loaded in as many green vegetables as I possibly could.(More good stuff means less room for bad stuff.)
For breakfast, this included spinach with my eggs and salsa.
For lunch I made a huge salad for me and George with shredded broccoli and steamed kale and spinach.
For dinner steamed kale with black beans and salsa. (I guess you can tell I love the kick of salsa.)
Stayed away from packaged Lara Bars — and the like — including those lovely little individually-packaged fig bars in the bulk aisle at HEB.
(Ate an apple for 2p snack with a piece of pumpernickel and almond butter — only a tablespoon of almond butter.)
My mid-morning snack had been the piece of health bread with 1 tablespoon of almond butter
(yes…almond butter has lots of fat calories, but right now I’m all about moderation and I think a total of 2 tablespoons almond butter per day is fine.)
I attended yoga class and worked through half the postures in the Ashtanga primary series.
After heading home I had for an evening snack a bowl of plain popcorn — and drizzled over it about a tablespoon of Daiya cheddar cheese.
Yes. This YEAR I want to eat RIGHT and FEEL GREAT and USE food as fuel.
But of course making sure the experience is pleasurable.
Do you have a new eating plan for the new year? If so, I’d like to know about it.
Leave a post or shoot me an e-mail. Thanks! And Happy New Year!!
