So, um, food rut anyone?
I’ve been in one major food rut lately. While I don’t hate it…it’s actually quite a delicious rut, I think it’s time for a change. I rreeeaaalllyyy need YOU to give me your recipe suggestions and/or adjustments/adaptations.
So…here’s what I ate Wednesday I’ve been eating lately (WIBEL ?? 😉 ).
Breakfasts continue to be ~ 1/2 c. oats (dry) mixed with strawberries. So delicious!
BUT I need to add more calories. I know an easy add would be peanut/almond butter and/or a handful of chopped nuts.
I’m not quite willing to give up my oats yet, seeing as how they’re so warm on these *cold* Alabama mornings. 😉
What other suggestions do you have?
Lunch continues to be delicious…and repetitive.
One reason breakfasts and lunches are the same is because they’re ridiculously easy to throw together and take little to no brain power to assemble and grab on the way out the door.
Buuuutttt….I’m pretty sure there are other things that are equally as easy. I just gotta get out of my dang rut.
Whole wheat bagel + hummus + turkey + lettuce + tomato served with a side of triscuit mini’s, cause they’re way cuter than the regularly sized ones, and a dessert of a dark chocolate chip cookie. MMM!
Again, I’m in the market for some easy lunch suggestions.
Want to take a guess? Still been loving my Luna bars.
Chocolate and coconut, seriously, does it get much better? I wouldn’t know, seeing as I’m in a RUT.
Easy to grab and go is a must when it comes to snack time. I never know quite where I’m going to be when the afternoon hunger strikes. I could be home, I may have a meeting at school or need to work longer in my classroom, or be running errands. So, something easy to throw in my purse is a must.
Again, dinners have been quite redundant over the past few weeks. I’m continuing to love my quinoa bowls, and sweet potato quesadillas. Sides range from salads topped with feta (which makes everything way delicious) and almonds to baked tortilla chips and salsa.
However scrumptious these meals are, I’m definitely in need of some new dinner inspiration.
*I know there are tons of blogs and Pinterest pins out there that offer so many delicious recipes, but I sometimes have a difficult time finding the time to peruse pinterest or blogs.*
I usually end up snacking on a handful or 2 or trail mix after dinner. It’s an organic mix I picked up at Publix made of almonds, craisins, and cashews. So good!
And there ya have it folks, my big, fat, food rut.
I need YOU to hold me accountable for chaining things up this week.
I know it’s not bad to occasionally get stuck in a rut, but I’m pretty sure my disordered eating past is partly to blame. You see, when I get comfortable, I don’t like to step out of my little bubble and try new things. New recipes means I don’t know calorie counts, I’m not sure how I’ll feel after eating, and so on and so on. Blah, blah…even I’M getting sick of it! Crazy, right?! But, sadly, it’s the truth.
That’s where you come in. Challenge me, question me, and push me out of my comfort zone and into a healthy, balanced, confident, full life of joy.
