I think I’m having the winter blahs which is weird because I live in the hottest and sunniest place on earth. But lately I’ve been feeling incredibly unmotivated yet totally overwhelmed at the same time. Make sense? Yeah, not to me either. I think I’m still adjusting to the newness of everything I’m doing in my life this year. It’s only two weeks into nutrition school and I feel like sponge wanting to absorb more. I find myself reading chapters ahead in bed at night because it’s all so interesting! Without a doubt, I’ve made the right decision and am in the right place for right now even if it is scary and unknown.
Mom also left two weeks ago which may have something to do with my blah feeling; the reality of everything is setting in I guess. She was here on and off since the car accident last July. It feels like a huge chapter of my life has closed and maybe to some extent I’m mourning that loss. Strange to mourn something so awful. When she left, she told me “have a little faith” and then I jammed out like George Michael. Kidding! Now when I’m feeling overwhelmed or scattered (like I do everyday haha) I remind myself that sometimes you have to have a little faith.
Now that we’ve got the heavy stuff out of the way, it’s Wednesday so let’s see what I’ve been eating! These are my eats from last Saturday, a very scattered day with somehow the most perfect 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 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!
Snack. Emerald raw almonds. I love these!
Lunch. My go-to steamed broccoli and tuna “salad” with mustard.
Black bean hummus without tahini with raw broccoli and cauliflower. P.S. that hummus is my most pinned recipe. Pin it!
A spoonful of Trader Joe’s peanut butter with flax and chia. Have you tried this? It’s pretty awesome!
Dinner. A new recipe I’ve been working on, Chicken Pho with zoodles from the crockpot. Since I was forced to eat gluten free due to my gluten intolerance, pho is probably the meal I miss most. The struggle is real so I’ve making my own noodle-less version and I finally got it just right. I feel so cool eating with chopsticks at home.
Snack. Just a sliced orange.
Do you eat with chopsticks at home? What are you trying to have faith about right now?
