I’ve noticed a shift in my eating since the beginning of the year. More and more I’m eating a lot less meat and lot more plants and legumes. I’ve never eaten a lot of meat. In fact, I haven’t eaten red meat in almost two decades (it’s one of the 10 foods I never eat).
This shift hasn’t been an intentional change. When I plan my meals, I keep it simple thinking about what I’m currently craving. Is there a protein, a healthy fat, complex grain or legume, leafy green and starchy vegetable? If I’ve got all of the above covered, then we’re in business. It’s a much less complicated way to meal plan.
This shift made me wonder. Am I becoming an intuitive eater? I’ve never been someone who can “eat mindfully.” Honestly, I’ve always questioned if intuitive eating was even achievable for someone who is a recovering overeater like me. For now, the jury is out on this question. Looking back on my life I find the phases I’ve gone through with eating fascinating, but that’s a post for another day because you came here to see eats!
If you’re new to Skinny Fitalicious, What I Ate Wednesday is a post I do every week showcasing my meals from one day. It’s motivational to see what other people eat in their day and also inspires me to eat balanced and to continue creating more delicious recipes for you!
Breakfast. Cauliflower kale frittata. I’m obsessed with this breakfast right now!
Butternut squash maple pancakes with blueberries.
Snack. A grain free date nut bar. Cashew butter, I heart you.
I snacked on some of this amazing edamame hummus with carrots too.
Dinner. Another meal I’m been obsessed with lately. I haven’t come up with an official name for it yet, but as soon as I do I will be sure to pass the recipe along to you!
Do you believe intuitive eating is real? What shifts have you experienced in your diet?
