What do I eat?

Friday, July 13, 2012

I saw a comment asking me exactly what I eat on a daily basis. I thought I would write a blog to let you guys know what I generally eat so that you can get an idea of some things you might like.

Breakfast: I am pretty routine with my breakfast. I normally buy frozen mixed berries and add them to a cereal like Frosted Mini Wheats, Bran, or some other hearty cereal. I don't drink regular milk. I prefer almond, coconut, soy or hemp milk. It adds more flavor and and usually has fewer calories.

Lunch/dinner: My lunches and my dinners are very similar. I make a list every time I go shopping and I have staples that I like to keep on hand. I buy vegetarian chili, canned soups, eggs, frozen veggies, tuna, canned white meat chicken, and things like bread, rice, and noodles. I like to keep things on hand that are easy to make and that clearly say how many calories it contains on the label.

Snacks: I love Greek yogurt. I like to eat peanut butter sandwiches, fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, grapes etc. I also like nuts, cottage cheese and peaches or apricots, and mixed veggies with some seasoning on top like lemon pepper or hot sauce.

I mentioned I love burritos so I thought I would let you know what I put in mine. I use flour tortillas, re-fried beans, low fat cheese, and salsa or hot sauce. That's it. It's tasty and pretty healthy too. Sometimes I like to add tomatoes, onions, guacamole/avocado and chicken. It really depends on what groceries I have stocked up and what I'm in the mood for.

I know it can be tough deciding what foods to eat, and it can be even tougher to find healthy alternatives. This isn't a complete list as I like to eat out sometimes and sometimes there are things that I am craving that I normally wouldn't eat. I hope this has helped.
