Eating healthy is probably one of the hardest things for me when it comes to being healthy. I love working out, so I have no issues when it comes to that. However, I feel like I can work out as much as I want but if I don’t eat healthy then I don’t see results. I read somewhere that “it all starts in the kitchen” (or something along those lines), and I couldn’t agree more.
Here are a few of the foods I ate this week.
Whole grain waffles, peanut butter & bananas
Guys, this was so good! It did take like 5 minutes to make, but it was so worth it! I love the flavor combinations.
How I made it healthy: Instead of regular waffles I used whole grain, no syrup just a tablespoon of organic peanut butter, and bananas.
I am pretty obsessed with egg scrambles. I “literally can’t even”. ha! This was a breakfast I made on a day I was home.
How I made it healthy: I used one whole egg and one egg white. Half a small potato, no oil, salt and pepper. BAM! Deliciousness!
Oh. My. Gosh. Becky. I couldn’t get over how good this salad tasted. I used about 4 oz of leftover steak (from the night before) peppers, avocado, and croutons.
How I made it healthy: Normally I use ranch or any type of dressing. This time I only did lemon juice, salt and pepper. Done! Super healthy. It totally filled me up.
Jimmy John’s Sub(minus the chips)
So this was probably not the healthiest thing. BUT I really wanted a sub! I didn’t end up eating the chips because they were gross! Ugh, vinegar? Really? Yuck!
How I made it healthy: NO MAYO! I had turkey, vegies, and mustard. That’s it. Pretty simple and it tasted good.
Cottage Cheese & Peaches
I love this combination! Some of you mentioned (on Instagram) that you prefer pineapple…so I tried it and loved it! You can pretty much add any fruit to cottage cheese and it will be healthy 😉
How I made it healthy: Like I said no wrong doing with this combination, what I did is instead of getting peaches in syrup I did peaches in their own juice and I didn’t use the entire juice.
Need I say more?
Steak, potatoes, & broccoli
This was a simple dinner. Nothing to it. Baked potatoes, steamed broccoli and steak.
Burger & Potatoes (What?)
Yes, that is a burger, and yes those are potatoes. But hear me out, I needed a burger. Like, I NEEDED one.
How I made it healthy: Whole wheat bread. Homemade patty. I made it super thin and small. NO MAYO! Of course, there was ketchup and mustard. But thats it. No guilt.
Okay guys, so those are some of the things I ate this week. After a week of eating healthy, I feel great! I feel less bloated, with more energy and I feel good about myself. Knowing that I have will power and being good to my body gives me confidence 😀 I lost 2lbs! Yeyah! I did have a Hersey’s Kiss (okay fine I had 4) and a couple of drinks, hey it was mamas’ night out, I gave myself an okay to eat whatever that night. Balance is key. If I am too strict on myself I know I will not succeed, I will give up. Besides, I am trying to make a life change and create good habits. I cannot live my life without chocolate, that is just not happening.
This week I will continue with eating healthy and incorporate eating more fruits. Next wieek I will take out sodas and juices from my diet. I’ll give you guys an update once those two weeks are up. Can’t wait to see what happens.
