Healthy Living Meal Plan | 2014 Blogger Challenge

You’d think with how much food that I eat, I’d be an expert, but when Gabi sent the e-mail that food was Topic 6, I blanked. I’m not the healthiest eater…like at all. I eat what’s convenient, I binge eat, everything’s loaded with fat or sugar or something not good for me. The past few months, I’ve really been struggling with my weight; by this, I mean that I’m struggling to stick to any form of healthy eating. Since I don’t have cool recipes to share and I’m trying to create a healthier lifestyle, I thought for this post I would make up a little meal plan for myself and if anyone else benefits from this or even would like to share some advice, awesome. 🙂 Disclaimer: I am in NO WAY an expert on health. Lol

Breakfast: Chobani 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt with 2 hard boiled eggs
               Eggs and asparagus with salt, pepper, and drizzled with olive oil
               Veggie Omelet (onion, mushroom, bell pepper, spinach, etc)

Snack: Carrots with hummus
           Almonds
           Celery with natural peanut butter

Lunch: Chicken Caesar Salad with little to no croutons, dressing on the side
           Tuna salad with avocado wrapped in lettuce
           Taco salad – salsa, avocado, ground turkey meat seasoned with Trader Joe’s taco mix, bell              peppers, etc.

Snack: Granola with plain Greek yogurt
           All natural trail mix
           Toast with apple butter

Dinner: Baked lemon salmon and asparagus (olive oil, salt, pepper, etc)
            Baked chicken with broccoli and parmesan
            Brown garlic rice or baked sweet potatoe – optional

Whelp, maybe this little plan will help me sort my life out. Lol Also, I thought I’d add just a few tips having to do with food that I’ve been told can help if you’re trying to lose weight. Protein and vegetables should always be the main focus, a small portion of healthy carbs (ie. quinoa) can be included, but its not necessary. Fruit is healthier than chocolate or ice cream, but the natural sugars are still going to spike insulin levels. Contrary to popular belief, fat is okay; sugar is what you need to worry about. And lastly, everything in moderation!
Alrighty lovelies, if you’ve got any advice for me, leave them down in the comments! 🙂
