 I've have aIII'veII have had a lot of people ask me lately, what do you actually eat in a day? How do you not eat bread, pasta, rice, processed foods, etc? So I figured I'd take pictures of everything I ate today to show you all how easy it can be. Yes, today, I was that girl who takes pictures of all of her food. Actually since I started this blog, I've been that girl a lot. Oh well.


Here is Everything I ate today....

Breakfast- Zucchini, Green Pepper, Onion, Jalapeno, and Bacon with two eggs













Lunch- Leftover Baked Chicken thighs with a dry spice rub, an avocado, and an orange













Dinner- Salmon and Lots of  Broccoli














That's all there is to it. I ate meat, vegetables, and some fruit. I drank water.  I got a nice balance of carbs, fat, and protein. I did not feel at all hungry or deprived. Life is good smiley. What did you eat today??

    Do you eat any snacks??? Dessert?? That would be the hard part for me.

    For what it is worth, my favorite dessert is raw coconut butter with raw cacao. I add a little water to mix it until it is a pudding consistency. I prefer It without honey, but until you can break yourself of added sweeteners, it may be a bit much to take.

    Coconut is a very healthy fat, and raw cacao is full of antioxidants, so this, without sweetener, is a very healthy after dinner treat. Actually, if you can't do it unsweetened, you can add freshly squeezed orange juice instead of water. I bet that would be yummy.

    Hey Jean- Great question! Yesterday I didn't. For me, what I typically do is eat breakfast around 6 am. My lunch I tend to spread over the course of a few hours. If I bring 3 things like I did yesterday, I'll graze between 11 and 1 when I get time. Then Dinner for me doesn't usually end up happening until 7:30 (or 8:45 in the case off yesterday). When I stay busy, I really don't get hungry. If I have more down time, snack more often. Snacks are usually raw nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc), fruit, or veggies and guac.

    As far as desserts go, I'll have fruit (sometimes with some coconut cream on it- yummy!) , or sometimes a bit of very dark chocolate (I try for 85%). I try to just keep things in the house I know are good, and it makes things easy! Hope that helps!!
