Happy Thursday! Food: I often get asked “what do you eat?” This is my go-to breakfast. It is 2 eggs and 1/3 cup egg whites, (my trainer just made me add spinach too), 1 pkg instant plain oatmeal (preferred would be not instant), tiny box of raisins (45 cal), and a banana. And today “Mama needs her coffee” (cup from my youngest son). 425 calories.
Today I’m eating this all now and taking a “rest” day. If I get up early (5:30 am) to swim or workout, I’ll bring the banana with me and eat the rest when I get home.
I think what might be more important is what do I NOT eat. For about 20 years my go-to breakfast was Frosted Mini Wheats with milk and on the weekends a Bisquick waffle with butter, peanut butter and syrup or a bagel with cream cheese. I did not understand simple carbs versus complex carbs and to be honest I’m still learning. Questions/Comments? Glad to hear them.
Food: I often get asked “what do you eat?” This is my go-to lunch (right now anyways). It is turkey chili (think Jennie-O). I make it in the Crock pot on Sunday’s and it usually lasts me all week. Today I added spinach and 1/2 an avocado. (That’s because my trainer said “add some type of GREEN vegetable- hence the spinach.). I’m on my second 32 ounce cup of water as well. 478 calories.
I think what might be more important again is what do I NOT eat. For about 20 years my go-to lunch was some type of sandwich (tuna or processed deli meat) with mayo on wheat bread with chips- whatever chips were in the house from the kids.
If you saw my post from last week and then think about this week, and see the changes I made on breakfast and lunch. Those changes are 🔑 in ridding my body of inflammation (I have RA.). Again I did not understand simple carbs versus complex carbs and to be honest I’m still learning. Questions/Comments?
