I could go on for a while but these are just a few of the benefits I have found!
Perfect lunch. Today has been so great :)
Breakfast this morning: 1 large egg, I stole from one of the chickens yesterday, scrambled with 1 egg white, roma tomato from my mom’s garden, onion from my dad’s farm, pepper for tasting. And on the side half of a grapefruit! :)
I go through so many food phases.
First it was omelets
then it was just any kind of food with eggs
chobani (a short lived obsession)
sushi and salmon
and now it’s Yasso frozen greek yogurt
Also, I know what you are thinking…
I love peanut butter/other nut butters but I am weird and I’m not in love with it. I have it maybe a couple of times a month :o
Ooo yes! Good call! Salads and me will always be forever in love <3 <3
so colorful :)
Making a wrap part I.
I agree with all of this, but do things that you aren’t good at as well, because the rush of improving and getting better is one of the best feelings ever :)
Dinner last night! Stuffed tilapia with salmon and crab. Steamed fresh vegetables on the side.
Ate 1/2 of the fish (the portion is gigantic) and omitted the sauce! Lots of yummy protein and omegas in the tilapia! Healthy eating when eating out. No excuses :)
Good morning! :D
Breakfast this morning:
2 whole farms eggs scrambled with baby spinach and cherry tomatoes
1 piece of whole wheat toast
my momma’s homemade strawberry jam on 1/2 (she spends the entire summer canning our fresh produce for the upcoming year, so props to her)
almond butter on the other 1/2 (my latest obsession)
