Balanced Living – Balance in all things

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.

Balance.

Did you find the balance between nutrient-dense foods and treats during your pregnancy?

Whole Foods Wednesday – Why Are Egg Sammiches Not Good For You?!

I love food. Like, LOVE FOOD.

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!
