I’m mostly mindful with my food.
It matters that I think about food a lot. Even though I still enjoy the pleasures of some foods more than others, consuming balanced nutrition is not easy to do.
Just look around at the actions of people and you will notice that it really is difficult to keep the healthy eating patterns.
It all begins in the morning.
I don’t really have a lot of time in the morning, whether I’m tweaking the playlists or twerking in the shower (not true).
Today, I woke up and mixed a whey protein isolate shake with water. I like that particular brand of powder because it mixes easily and digests well. This gave me some revitalizing and so I got ready to head to the studio.
I also sipped on some pomegranate juice because lately the QFC has had a two-for-one deal on the big POM juices. Even though there is the sugar content, I do feel that some antioxidants like pomegranates are the real pharmacy – you know what I’m saying.
Fortunate for an afternoon meal.
I finished a block of morning work and was able to reach my apartment with ease even though the wind was blowing like crazy. Today’s lunch was around 2:00 PM and included two pieces of baked trout and a pound of asparagus.
With the asparagus, I either steam or satay it so that it finishes before the Steelhead. Once the asparagus finishes, I eat as much as I can because I haven’t had a solid meal since before this and hungry enough to appreciate bitter foods.
I am practical about this meal and realize that I probably won’t be making more vegetables later on, so I’m just going to eat them all. As long as I get enough greens for the day, it really doesn’t matter when.
I’m about halfway through my plate of asparagus when I take the fish out of the oven. It is flaky perfection. The oily goodness and soft textures make this protein delicious as it is fresh out of the oven. I don’t even care about the bones.
Kombucha to top it off and then I don’t eat for a while.
Breakfast for dinner.
Eggs are a protein source that I used to eat often but haven’t eaten much lately and of course there was a sale on the eggs I like today. Since I had some fresh eggs, I decided to prepare them for my last meal of the day.
I turn on the stove top to medium, get my pan ready and scoop a tablespoon of coconut oil onto the hot pan. The eggs go in, and today I ate eight eggs and make it four whole eggs and four egg whites.
Why today did I decide not to eat all the whole eggs?
Because, avocado. Since the avocados are a great source of healthy fats, I was able to reduce the fat content of my protein by taking out some of the yolks.
Not to mention, with pepper, herbs, and/or seasoning, it is delicious again! Taste my favorite of the senses.
People who drink a lot of water, I’m proud of you.
People who drink a lot of water are doing it right. It’s a relatively simple habit and largely possibly thing to do that helps fitness. Make the habit of drinking water over the day and it will help the body head to toe.
Thank you and stay tuned all!
