I love it.
And I hate it.
I wish I could be one of those people that just looks at food and sees it as fuel, I really wish I didn’t care what my food tastes like.
But I do.
Which makes eating for optimal health a little more complicated than I want it to be.
I have a lot of my food situation dialed in, as part of my morning routine I pretty much just eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. It’s a smoothie.
9 oz of egg whites
5 oz of plain greek yogurt
¼ cup rolled oats
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 blueberry/acai flavor packet
2 oz spinach
1 cup of triple berry mix
That’s it. Every morning the old blendtec has to work its way through that mess until I am satisfied there are no chunks rolling around in there (if not for my overpriced blender I could not drink this particular meal)
But after breakfast?
Sometimes it feels like all bets are off, I have tried and tried to eat the same thing for lunch every day, I have experimented with different meals and eventually the lack of variety just kills me.
And I fall off the wagon,
This happened yesterday.
The short version goes like this.
Day started on point.
Then there were donuts.
And Crumbl cookies.
And bacon cheeseburgers with a fried egg.
And tater tots.
And then I went home to a healthy home cooked meal. But all of my fuel…literally ALL OF IT during the day was garbage.
I love garbage food. My body does not.
That’s the problem with eating healthfully a lot of the time, the garbage food that is your “guilty pleasure” your “cheat meal” does one of two things…
Makes you feel sick.
Makes you feel slow.
And at the gym this morning I could tell that my body did not appreciate the fuel I gave it yesterday. It did not appreciate that fuel at all.
So I have to look at my life and make the choice.
What am I going to eat today?
Oh look donuts!
