I have all these topics I’d like to cover on the blog but somehow new material keeps becoming more relevant every day. I guess we’ll get to all those other things eventually.
So let’s cover a few things today…
1. Apparently even healthy meals with 1 treat may be too much for me some days. Yesterday seemed like a well balanced day. I ate only when I was hungry and I may have eaten a bit past the fullness point but it was all on super healthy and crazy delicious foods so I was okay with it. The hardest thing for me to do is throw away food that I know is good for me and that I LOVE. So yeah, after an amazing salad and a treat (which I knew I didn’t need but I wanted) – I went to bed super full and woke up, if it’s possible, even more full. I forced some coffee with milk into myself after walking up (just to get my metabolism going) but was unable to eat real breakfast for another 3 hours.
Green monster: 1/4 block of silken tofu, 1/2 cup skim milk, 5 giant frozen organic strawberries, 1/2 banana, a few cups of fresh spinach.
Toppings: Zoe’s granola, kashi golean cereal, raw cacao nibs
These pictures are atrocious but I overfilled this bowl and couldn’t bring it to the table I usually photograph my food at (the lighting is slightly better there). What I can say is that it was one of the best smoothies I’ve ever made!!!!! The cacao nibs tasted just like chocolate in this (I usually find them bitter). I think they soaked the sweetness from the cereal and the natural sugars in the banana + strawberries. Yum!
2. Emotional eating is hard to stop sometimes, even when you realize you are doing it. Sometimes it doesn’t seem as important. Sometimes food is soothing and that’s ok (just don’t do it every day!!). Sometimes you can break the rules!

Oh yes, and this:
Didn’t stand a chance! Picture is of the wrapper. 😳
I felt bad because although I was satisfied with my “dinner,” I didn’t feel like cooking anymore and Adam was on his own. His dinner: cereal.
LUNCH had no other significance than being amazing –> healthy + delicious = a winning combo!
I could seriously eat this every day of my life and be happy. SO good! I also had an orange for dessert (unpictured because we all know what oranges look like 😉 ).
Do you break the rules sometimes and still feel healthy?
