Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday!!
Just a little snippet of my balanced life to give you some inspiration for your own daily eats!
To be honest, I am now a rebel in every way when it comes to my diet. People say you are suppose to eat at the same time every day: I do not.
People say you are suppose to have carbs just in the evening: I do not (I have them ALL DAY)
People say you are not suppose to eat after 7pm: I do.
People say eat 6 small meals a day: Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. People say don’t eat 6 small meals- eat 3 large meals with no snacks! Again, sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.
What I do: I eat what I want WHEN I WANT. And that is enough for me right now.
So maybe I’m not the best person to be drawing inspiration from… haha. But after living a life full of nothing but food rules for 8 years, I’m 100% over it. I eat what I want when I want.
It’s liberating and amazing.
Without further adieu…
Coffee: Ugh. I deleted my stupid picture on accident. BUT- It’s black. To be honest, I’ve drifted away from bulletproof coffee recently. Why? I’m not sure. I just woke up one day and it didn’t sound good to be. So I didn’t make it. Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and it will sound good to me. Then I will partake- but not until then.
I mentioned on my guest WIAW on Victoria’s blog- I had been experimenting with interment fasting (IF) in the morning hours. Well that did not work well for me. (read more about that here). I think my biggest issue is that I have not getting enough calories in the day when I skipped breakfast. So that was my fault and I feel its not 100% fair to rule out IF just yet. I’ll be experimenting again in the future… maybe. Just not right now. If you are recovering from an eating disorder or you are just trying to find peace with food, I encourage you to tread lightly when it comes to fasting. Often times, your attempts to be “healthy” can be disguising an attempt to restrict or manipulate your food. You could be feeding the fire instead of promoting wellness. So be cautious and don’t do it just because someone else raves about the health benefits. Air on the side of caution and do not attempt IF until you are 100% ready. Its been 5 years since I began my recovery process and I am still careful.
Breakfast: Baked taters with 2 scrambled eggs and hot sauce.
I was still hungry and it was so good so I made more…
(If eggs increased cholesterol… my cholesterol would literally be through the ROOF. Its not. It’s normal.)
This matcha is made with raw, local, whole milk. OMG I DIE. But I typically make my iced matcha with the following:
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup whole fat canned coconut milk
- 2 tbsp MCT oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp matcha
- Blend that s*** up! The coconut fat solidifies a little since it’s ICED, but I kind of like it… If you don’t like it, you can totally have it warm!
Lunch: I rode my bike to a coffee shop to work after my morning calls. I hate my lunch once I got there. It looks like an absolute mess here… but it was:
- white rice
- 2 beef patties with raw goat cheese
- raw corn
- hot sauce
Snack #1: Raw almonds, cheese, and an apple. (Does anyone prefer slicd apples to eating an apple whole?! I didn’t take the time to slice this one up and I always regret it! Call me weird.)
Snack #2: RX bar.
- Free range, 100% grass fed beef sausage
- Romaine with dressing: I’ve been SO SO SO into Primal kitchen’s Cesear dressing. No BS in there. Its pretty $$$ so I’m going to just make my own next week…. I’LL POST THE RECIPE!
- Baked sweet tater fries with ketchup. I baked the sweet taters in ghee on 400 until done. I broiled them for about 2 minutes when they were almost done to get the crispy.
Post dinner snack: Edible gf cookie dough! Here is the recipe:
- 1 cup peanut butter
- ½ - ¾ cup milk of choice
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
Method: Combine all the dry ingredients. Add milk gradually- until reaches the consistency of cookie dough! Store in the fridge… or just eat it all immediately.
It was a day of nourishing and delicious eats!
