Well, I haven’t posted much about food on here in…years?
I’ve talked a few times about my journey towards having a balanced relationship with food but I’ve rarely shown the foods I’m actually eating. There are two reasons for that. Reason #1: I’m horrible at remembering to take pictures of my food– when I’m hungry, I wanna eat. Reason #2: It can be a breeding ground for comparison. All of our bodies, genetics, metabolisms and activity levels are different which means that a healthy and nourishing diet for one person, may not be for the next.
That being said, I will never, ever post a “Full Day of Eating” on Build Your Bliss. I did in the past (back in 2013, I believe) which were the days of living on the same rabbit’s diet day-in and day-out and wondering why I was always tired and grumpy. I assure you, I eat plenty now and my diet varies quite a bit from day to day. My meals are simple because I rarely ever get to eat at home #fulltimejobprobz and, when it comes to meal-prepping, I’m lazy. Plus, I like simpler foods. I’ve always been that way. Do I generally try to make healthy choices? Of course! 90% of the time, I opt for foods that I know will leave me feeling good and, the other 10%, I say to-hell-with-it and enjoy whatever I might be craving. Of course, some weeks that percentage gets a little skewed. This past week, for example, my sister and I have ordered pizza 3 (yes, THREE) times…oops. Emotionally, it has been an exhausting few weeks and that’s just how things played out. And you know what? I enjoyed every freakin’ bite. For me, that’s balance. You have to find what works for you.
Alright, enough chit-chat.
Here are a few random meals and snacks that I managed to snap over the past week or so. Some greens, some caffeine and some ice-cream 😉
What does a “balanced diet” look like for you?
Here’s to eating foods we actually enjoy…
