Food and Fit: August 14 – A Roundup of what I eat as a Nutritionist

Since I didn’t post my meals last week, I thought I’d share them here in a quick post!

NOTE:  I’m a creature of habit.  Usually I’ll find something I love to eat every single day for my first meal of the day and will continuously eat that until I can’t stand it anymore.  It makes shopping for ingredients easier, and I don’t have to think about what I’m having.  I’m a little OCD like that.  But feel free to switch things up for yourself if you can’t stand to eat the same thing every day!

**I’ve been under lots of stress and find I either will under or over eat.  In this past week’s case, I under-ate.

Routinely, I eat 2 larger meals in the day with some type of dessert, and will try not to snack between meals.

These meals were more random and usually they’re much more balanced, so please don’t think I eat this way all the time.  I’m trying to get back on track and keep my mind clear but you do what you have to do with what you are given.

I’m not being hard on myself for not eating 100% perfect, and neither should you.  As long as you’re trying, you’re moving in the right direction.  If you’re stressed, the worst thing you can do is create more stress by trying to be perfect with your eating.  It won’t help you, it’ll actually hurt you.  It’s ok to treat yourself and do what you can 🙂

Thanks for tuning in with my meals for the week!  I am currently planning my meals for the upcoming week so you’ll see more optimal meals soon.

I hope you all have a great Monday and a good start to the upcoming week!
