So, what have I been eating? Natural, whole, organic foods. I have gotten away from most processed foods, and have avoided added sugar and anything made with white flour, for the most part. A couple of times in the last few weeks, I have had small portions of these foods I have been trying to avoid. I have noticed that when I do have even a small amount of processed foods, sugar, or white flour, I feel icky.
I have become creative in the kitchen. I made turkey burgers with Wheat Germ instead of bread crumbs. I didn't tell anyone and they all raved about them! I made a very yummy citrus-y salmon with whole wheat pasta. Yum!
I am obsessed with yogurt, blueberries, and granola! Oh yea, and natural peanut butter with apples or bananas!
I treat myself to 4-5 Dove dark chocolate covered almonds each day....I have really begun to love them!
I have also tried a really good oatmeal pancake recipe with a home-made fruit topping. I made yogurt cheese and put that on the pancakes with the fruit as well. It was similar to stuffed crepes! One of my favorite things to have for breakfast.
And I have discovered a love for Kashi pizza. OH MY GOODNESS!! So amazingly good!
Overall, I am very pleased with this change in eating habits. I can see myself sticking with this long term, I just have to accept that there will be times I will have to stray from it just a bit. Especially for things like birthday parties, and other important celebrations. However, I also know that just because I am offered something sweet that would be contrary to how I normally eat, I do not have to accept it! I can say no thank you, and enjoy a few Dove Chocolates instead!
