What We Ate Today #4

Okay, so it has been three glorious weeks of no dairy, no starches or grains…Just protein, good oils and tons of veggies. Ya know what? It wasn’t that hard. Really. Most of my association with food is mental. I just have to be mentally ready to eat the way I am supposed to and not make any excuses. Now, I eat very healthy normally, but I was blessed with genetics that let me get away with NOTHING. So in order to have the look and feel I desire, I have to go the extra mile.

I made the decision to re-commit myself to eating only the best and I had fun with it. I did not treat it as being deprived, so I did not feel deprived. I had more variety in my meals than when I am more lenient with my nutrition. I shouldn’t refer to it in the past tense because I am going to continue to eat this way as best I can and have small breaks with treats.

That being said, today is a treat day for BJ and I since, we successfully accomplished three weeks. We will go back immediately to what we were doing before for another three weeks.

So what are we eating today?

Well it is important to remember that breakfast sets the tone hormonally for the entire day, so a Grand Slam at IHOP (I think that is what it is called) is a BAD idea. However, having fruit, yogurt all those foods that have nutritional value, but eaten with frequency can slow down fat loss, are great to have on your treat day. After all, after having no sugar for three weeks, fruit tastes soooo sweet.

Se here is what I had for breakfast today:

Ingredients:

1 cup of Greek Yogurt

1/4 Cup of Udi’s Vanilla and Almond Granola

Sprinkle of Stevia (for the yogurt. I have a very low tolerance for “tartness”)

1/2 Cup of Cherries and Mixed Berries

Directions:

Mix it up, make the face below and eat. Rather simple.

We will have a monster workout later and go out to dinner. We will enjoy things we don’t normally have, but we are not going to gorge or binge. Just allow ourselves the leeway nutritionally that we normally don’t.

Have a great weekend!
