To fuel a 90 min spin and a 4 mile run, I had overnight oats consisting of oats, water, flaxseed and frozen wild blueberries.
After my workout, I started with a chopped salad made of kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cucumber, corn and blueberries. Next, I had a big bowl of mixed vegetables and lima beans.
I’m learning to eat intuitively, to listen for when my body is truly in need of fuel, when it is satiated and when I feel content. For as long as I can remember, I’ve eaten til stuffed and uncomfortably full. I want to change this so bad! I grilled a plate of potatoes while I was eating my salad and steamed vegetables, but I did not feel the need to eat them right away. So I left them on the plate and did some things around the house. When I felt hungry, I ate a few potatoes. I wasn’t hungry for very many. Throughout the day I finished the plate. This way of eating is very new to me. This way of eating is going to change the way I live the rest of my life.
I forgot to snap a pic of my dinner. I had a banana and a bowl of salad like the one I had earlier, with black beans and sun-dried tomatoes added.
After dinner I felt like munching a bit. I made a sparkling water with lemon and lime, and a big bowl of air-popped pop corn. Exciting Saturday night!
Overall my mind is feeling very calm around food…a welcomed change! Abstaining from SOFAS (sugar oil flour alcohol and salt) is feeing really good. Eating WFPB (whole food plant based) is also feeling really good. I feel GOOD.
