So I made it a point this week, to keep track of what I ate. I tried my best to plan ahead so that I would make better food decisions. And it worked. I went to the Dutch Market and racked up on fruits and veggies. I bought a huge bag of fish from Walmart–I hate Walmart by the way. To many people and to much stuff every where! Boo!
Anyways…here you have it!
My breakfast this week, went a little something like this, OATMEAL with FRUIT. No sugar added, no milk, just fruit, water, and oatmeal.
Oatmeal with 1 banana, raspberry and boysenberries. The banana and orange is for my afternoon snack if need be.
Trail mix without the chocolate and edamames are the perfect snack!
I am not sure if you eat Edamame’s but these little suckers are so yummy and the health benefits are out of this world. I have been eating them between meals this week. Check out the benefits below:
Cholesterol free protein that increases the metabolism, shrinks fat cells, fights heart disease, osteporosis and diabetes, high in fiber, essential fatty acids, and a good source of vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, potassium and phosphorus. The fiber makes you feel full longer which helps cut down on calories.
In the morning on some days I made myself a smoothie. I cut up my fruit the night before so that in the morning all I had to do was throw it in the blender.
As for dinner, it was all fish and vegetables. I made some fresh kale with a bit of vinegar, fresh garlic and water. I love Bobby Flays recipe. I skipped the salt of course.
And I love me some Roasted Brussels Sprouts. I eat them allllllllll the time. I cut them in half, added a little bit of olive oil, basil, garlic and I squeeze fresh lemon juice over it, tossed it on up and cooked for about 10-15 minutes.
I made some coconut rice with okra–it was delish. I wish I had a picture to show you. I also made a new fish recipe to go along with it. Next week I will share because I am making it again for my husband this weekend!
I also stuck to water and hot tea.
I did better this week on my eating. I also worked out consistently as well!
What you eat is just as important as working out. But if you missed the mark a few times, just get back up and keep going. Making little changes eventually will equal big changes as long as you keep at it!
