It's been a while since I've posted a blog entry, so here I go! I often get asked how I eat so much produce throughout the day, so I thought I would also include how I add them into meals and snacks. The challenges I've had with weight loss have been more about knowing when to stop eating (I tend to overdo it on carbs and protein) and staying consistent with exercise. I aim to "eat the rainbow" every day and keep refined foods to a minimum. Some days are easier than others! Here goes!
Blue/Purple: beets (they were actually more of a pink, but I'm putting them here 'cause I can
Red: red pepper, strawberries, pink grapefruit
Orange/Yellow: yellow pepper, orange pepper, carrots, lemon, mango (maybe)
Green: baby kale, arugula, green beans, cucumber, chard
White: banana, garlic, onion, mushrooms, potato
Bfast: overnight oats with almond milk, flax and fresh strawberries
Lunch: BIG salad with baby kale and arugula, topped with beans, raw sunflower seeds, 3 different peppers, cucumber, fresh green beans and lemon juice as a dressing
Dinner: Sauteed chard with garlic, mushrooms, onions; vegan chicken patty, boiled potato
Snacks: rice cakes, unsalted nuts (raw when possible), grapefruit, banana, carrots and green beans, frozen mango (if craving something sweet at night)
treat: rice cake with natural peanut butter and chocolate chips (have to work on only eating one or two of these. I tend to overdo it!)
Have a wonderful day everyone!
