We spent the whole weekend at the pool which means I ate all the things… all of ‘em!
Some healthy, some not as healthy… that’s balance.
But what I love about my attitude towards food is that I don’t punish or berate myself for enjoying things that might not be high on the “good for me” list, because I know I will bounce right back and actually crave/enjoy things that ARE good for me. By embracing this balance, I eliminate that awful feeling of guilt, which I’m sorry, is not a flavor I am fond of 😉
After eating all the things this weekend, my body craves fresh veggies and so, that’s what my body gets – spinach topped with veggies.
Did you find the balance between nutrient-dense foods and treats during your pregnancy?
And breakfast sammiches rank hiiiiiigh on my list of favorites. And I could (and if my health wouldn’t suffer for it, would…) eat them every day!
But I don’t, because that’s not balance. When I start my morning with a good-for-me breakfast, most often, the rest of the day just flows much better!
I still enjoy a bagel (boy do I enjoy it!) or a breakfast sammich, because, BALANCE… but for me, my health, and my goals, that’s not the norm, and I’m grateful I enjoy, and my body responds well to, cleaner breakfasts!
Today: farina with a tsp of Maple syrup, cinnamon, apples and walnuts – so good!
I don’t often get the craving for ice cream (thankfully… we all know I have PLENTY of other sweet-stuff cravings!), but when I do, it’s nice to know I can create cleaner ice cream that doesn’t come loaded with sugar!
