Well, hello and happy new year! The holidays are over and I could not be more happy, but somehow my Christmas tree is still up. While it’s been a nice treat having two holiday weeks in a row, that conveniently fell over weekends no less, it feels good being back to a regular schedule eating normal food again especially after two weeks of high carbs and sugar.
But I’ve noticed that I’m seriously slacking in the vegetable department. It’s cold and I want nothing more than to cuddle up in a blanket eating chocolate covered oatmeal and cookies all day. That would be my dream. I haven’t been doing that, but I also haven’t been eating enough of the green stuff.
So instead of focusing on what I can’t have, I focus on what I can add to my diet to counteract the sugar cravings like eating more fruits and vegetables. My goal this week is to increase my vegetables with each meal and rotate green smoothies into my meals as well as a few other tricks for eating more veggies that I have. Even I am not perfect. Eating healthy is a struggle even for healthy people!
So let’s see how I’m doing so far. 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 fun to see what other people eat in a day and also great motivation for me to eat balanced and create more delicious recipes for you!
Breakfast. Butternut squash spinach breakfast bake.
Breakfast round two. Mom’s Skinny Gingerbread Pancakes. I have enough of these in the freezer to last another month.
Snack. Chocolate almond bite.
Dinner. Smoky black bean lentil soup from the freezer.
What are you trying to eat more of this new year? Are you happy or sad the holidays are over?
