What I Eat in a Day

You asked — so here it is! A post on what I typically eat in a day.

I’m a foodie and feeling hangry is not pretty. For me, eating and drinking is about family. I don’t ever want to take the joy out of food, because it brings everyone I love together.

So, I say no to diets. Instead, I try hard at making my eating habits a lifestyle [thanks to nutritionist, Kelly LeVeque]. I eat meals with protein and fat, and [typically] limit carbs to breakfast or lunch.

Below is what I eat on a weekday, with a handful of go-to options for each meal…

PS. those coconut almond cookies are coming to the blog next week!!

Of course, weekends aren’t this disciplined [hello, boozy brunches]!

My only no-exception rules? No fast food. No soda. No candy bars. Lots of bad chemicals in that stuff and not worth the calories! I DO treat my sweet tooth to a celebratory cupcake, ice cream cone, or macaron now and then.

A few tricks? Split your desserts with a friend | Make zoodles or spaghetti squash in place of regular pasta | Puree cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes | Sleep 7-8 hours | Workout a few days a week to keep you motivated!

The better you eat, the better you feel. Health = happiness. You are beautiful.
