One Week In

I won’t always post about the food I’m eating, but I thought I’d give a quick now vs. then picture of my diet:

Today:

Breakfast–steel cut oats, plain yogurt, fresh berries, some honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Snack–an Evolution pepita, almond, and cranberry bar.

Lunch–greens with tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, turkey, and a lemon balsamic dressing; a tangerine; apple slices

Snack–salted plantain chips from Whole Foods

Dinner–salmon in lemon garlic butter and steamed broccoli.

Snack–Way Better brand chips with fresh salsa

Drinks–water, or water mixed with kombucha and fresh squeezed orange juice.

Seven days ago:

Breakfast would have been McDonald’s.  Lunch would have been salad, but with ranch dressing, croutons, and a side of whatever bread-y packaged snack I felt like buying in the cafeteria.  Then add lots of mini-Milky Way bars, always available in the library lounge.  Dinner would have been Subway or All Star or pizza, followed by chocolate.  Snacks would have been more chocolate.  And Coke Zero.  LOTS of Coke Zero.

I certainly feel better than I did a week ago!  Yay, me!

  2. Changing our diets, I mean habits are so tough!!! It is so much easier to run to McDonalds or wherever, but when it does change you will love your mind and body!! I am on the same path as you. Good luck to you.
