Healthy Eating Can be Good!

I get a lot of questions on my eating since many think all I do it eat! Yes that may be true but I eat lots of small meals frequently to keep myself going. Plus I am nasty crabby if I don't! I know there has been research and stuff to back up that this is  the best way to eat but my best reason: I get to eat lots of different things so when I can't decide one just waits a few hours!

Breakfast:
Here I am pretty boring during the week:
Oatmeal with banana or apples and nut butter and of course coffee
I will throw in a piece of whole grain GF toast with PB at times but honestly I need quick breakfast!

Snacks:
This is where I have the most fun! I could honestly live on snacks, but healthy ones.
Fruit: Berries, apples, melon
Veggies and hummus
Homemade granola
Lara Bar if I need something quick (I try to avoid processed stuff)
Nuts, right now I'm on a pistachio kick
Small salad
Shakeology: my favorites are Tropical strawberry with coconut water and pineapple and vegan chocolate with almond milk, PB and banana

Lunch/Dinner:
I frequently do leftovers for lunch so often the same. Here are some examples of the past week.
Quinoa pasta with squash "cheese" and black beans
Black bean and roasted veggie quesadilla on brown rice tortilla
Salad and roasted sweet potato
Quinoa with spinach basil pesto
Quinoa with roasted veggies, kale and black beans


So there you go, it is possible to eat healthy and have good tasting food. Be creative and meal prep ahead. I roasted the veggies, made a big batch of quinoa and cut veggies over the weekend.

What are your favorite healthy meals and snacks?

Now on to packing for my trip to San Diego, planning ahead with lots of easy to grab foods. Share your favorite travel foods.

  6. I have been huge into healthy eating this summer! My garden is coming in nicely and sometimes I love to just grab a fresh tomato, cut it up and sprinkle a little salt on it and snack away:)
