I’m not eating nuts anymore. Bold statement, I know. No but seriously: me + nuts = no bueno. I know I’ve talked about this a bunch of times before but I’ve kept on eating them “in moderation.” A few cashews here, a bit of hazelnut butter there… Well that has not been doing the trick so I’m going cold turkey. Anytime I eat nuts a) my skin breaks out and b) my stomach feels awfulllll. So I’m going nut free, which kinda sucks because I love nut butter and baking with almond flour. Nuts are also a super easy and energy-dense snack. Oh well. Let’s see how this goes.
This is what I ate on Labour Day Monday…
I woke up, did a quick at-home workout and then chugged some coconut water.
Yes, straight from the carton. I used to be a total Gatorade-guzzler (orange please) but obvs Gatorade is a total Franken-food. I honestly don’t love the taste of coconut water (sometimes it’s pretty refreshing) but it is a wonderful source of legit natural electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium) that we must help our body replenish after sweating in order to keep our cells working properly and to carry electrical impulses.
Then I drank my post-workout smoothie
I had a more substantial breakfast at 10:30am: 2 eggs, 1 avocado and salsa.
I got hungry again in the afternoon so around 3pm had a delicious snack of: 1 sliced banana, a splash of coconut milk and a sprinkling of dried blueberries, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Yum!
I needed a little something before having an “actual dinner” so ate a hard boiled egg at around 5pm.
Dinner (at 6:30pm) was another bowl of food: ground beef, zucchini and sweet potato.
I ended the day with a little dessert around 8:30pm: 3 Trader Joe’s dark chocolate honey mints (love these – only 3 ingredients!) and some tea. Now who is going to ship me some more TJ’s goodies?!
Questions of the day…
Is there a food you love that doesn’t love you back?
