don’t worry, i’m not going to start preaching to you about how grains are awful. i’m not going to do it, because i don’t believe it.
i do believe that everyone has a different diet that works best for them and that i haven’t found mine yet in my 26 years. it’s sad, really.
anyway, i mentioned recently that brad and i have been trying to cut out grains in general from our diet to see how we (ok i – brad hasn’t been feeling badly) feel.
so, for this week’s what i ate wednesday, i’ll show you what my diet has been looking like lately. (here’s a hint –> lots of fruit, veggies, eggs, greek yogurt, beans, sweet potatoes, and meat….)
lots of fresh berries and greek yogurt around here. this one had a drizzle of agave mixed in too!
and a packed breakfast eaten in lab recently:
cottage cheese, fresh driscoll’s raspberries, and a drizzle of pure canadian maple syrup!
sometimes i have an egg or two with breakfast and a smaller serving of the yogurt. i mix it up & haven’t felt bored with it yet! and i’m not missing my oats… *shocking*
i’ve been having a lot of fun with lunches lately!
sweet potatoes have been making a lot of appearances.
i couldn’t make a decision on toppings, so this one has some garlic eggplant spread on one half and some sharp cheddar, salsa, and a dollop of plain yogurt on the other half.
snacky lunches have also been happening.
this one had cut up red peppers and portobello mushrooms to dip in this spicy jalapeno greek yogurt dip and a side of costco seaweed salad. so tasty!
all served up with my vitamins.
side note: remember how i thought it was my multi vitamin that was making me sick? yeah, so definitely not that. i started having even worse stomach problems after i stopped taking them, so i’m back on all of my supplements.
i’ve been having lots of raw veggies snacks after stocking up at costco and getting some great csa veggies!
chocolate has also been in the mix.
thank goodness for dark chocolate.
dinners have been simple, yet out of my comfort zone lately. that’s mostly because we’ve been eating more meat, which i just don’t usually cook.
brad grilled steaks the other night while i made a great veggie mix.
veggies included: red peppers, zucchini, red onions, garlic, portobello mushrooms, and a big pile of sautéed kale on the bottom!
also, any time we go out for dinner and i’m doing something different with my diet, i get all concerned about what i’m going to order.
thankfully, buck & honey’s came through for us!
i got cedar plank salmon with a side of the steamed veggie of the day (zucchini, squash, and peppers) and mushrooms & onions as my other side.
it was so delicious and totally something i would have ordered even if i wasn’t avoiding grains!
whew! this is a novel and i still haven’t told you about fitness!
my biggest recent fitness accomplishment?
actually making it to my gym and doing strength training! it’s been a while..
i hope your day is off to a good start! i was feeling a little sleepy this morning – i stayed up too late reading last night.
but i’m organizing my to-do list for the day and getting ready to have a productive day!
