Eating healthy is not a struggle for me, but it does come in waves which is extremely annoying. I can go weeks eating the right things and feeing good about how my body feels and then bam, a burger and pizza is calling my name and all of my hard work goes down the drain because now I have triggered a spark for more greasy unhealthy goodness. I said I would be honest so I'm just letting you know how it goes. The happens to most people trying to go down the right path to freedom of healthy living. Honestly most people also have the misconception that healthy food is simply not good. But I was on a mission to find meals that were good to me and create longevity of healthy eating. for me I had to create a slow transition. For example,think about the things you already like eating and then come up with a plan to make better options, Yes, I said a plan, anything you want to be successful at you have to put your mind and time into. Even though it's still a task to resist the not so healthy options, I do pick and choose my battles wisely, lets face it I am from the south and the south is the happy place of fried everything. but I only indulge as a treat for my hard work with ONE meal for that day, preferably an early dinner. I try to go for early because it gives my food enough time to digest and I choose dinner because its the last meal and the day is almost over. Afterwards I pull myself to the side to give me a pep talk, here is how that goes, "Eb, girl, we have a goal, and this piece of fried chicken will not get you there. Put the chicken down and make your tasty baked hot honey mustard glazed chicken." In that recipe I use agave instead of honey, I just tell my self it's honey, the taste is amazing. Are you licking your fingers at the thought or what? So far this has been working for me a great deal, switching out something that's not healthy and replacing it with something with so much flavor that I would prefer the healthy over the fried chicken. My palate has evolved so much and now most days this is second nature for me. I wanted to share a few of the meals I eat for lunch, These are my quick go to meals in a time crunch. I don't understand boring food, it never processed in my mind and I have no idea how people eat it. The world is full of possibilities including food. My good friends over a Planetbox supplied me with a their amazing lunchbox set and it helps me so much with portion control. I don't even leave the house some days and still use it to help with portions. Ladies always remember to take care of the inside of your body as well as the outside. I have learned that you only get one chance at life and the body you have, make it count and do your best.

Second Lunch Idea includes pasta zero which is shirataki noodles, it comes in a small back 15 calories of two servings this is both servings. I use cucumber and pepper. Some days I add shrimp or chicken. I like to top it with honey ginger sauce and eat it at room temperature. before I place it in my box I boil it quickly let it cool and then pack it. Along with this meal I have a 1/2 cup of veggie soup and sliced apples and oranges with a honey lemon drizzle. (yummy!).
Lastly, one of my favorite simple lunches is chive and onion cream cheese turkey rollup, 1/4 cup cheese crackers, cucumber slices and the fruit salad mixture in the previous picture. For m its balanced and I get the salty and sweet components I like in my meals. I only pray to get better but this is a great start in my opinion, What are your favorite meal options?
I laugh a lot and cry often, Sometimes at the same time, that may be weird and that's OK, This blog is me in a bedazzled nutshell. Enjoy what I love
