Road trip and unofficial training day! I believe in keeping it simple and eating as many “real” ingredients as possible. Yes it’s a struggle to keep 100% healthy 100% of the time but that’s not what I’m about. I’m not here to show you how to get rock hard abs and by reading these posts you’re not going to suddenly have the perfect diet and never have to go to the doctor again. It’s unrealistic and restricting and may be detrimental to your overall health to worry about every single bite of food you eat. It’d be wonderful to be able to have a chef on hand feeding you organic, locally sourced, unprocessed foods 24/7 but let’s be honest, that’s unrealistic and most of us don’t have the time to make that type of food. My goal is to share what I’ve learnt about food and what works for me whilst showing you that even though I preach healthy food, I’m definitely not 100% healthy. Nutrition is so personal and what works for me, may not work for you but in saying that. I won’t be eating as much of my normal food while I’m away, I’ll have to make choices that sometimes aren’t that healthy but I’m not going to exclude them from the blog. I’m going to be 100% honest about what I eat throughout the week. I think you’ll be surprised at the amount of food I eat and the fact that yea I encourage whole clean foods but balance between the healthy and unhealthy is what I strive for.
Breakfast: This is a favourite of mine! You’ll be seeing a lot more oat combinations throughout the week. Oats cooked on stove top (1/2c oats, 1c liquid-water and/or milk, frozen berries, 5 dates, ½ banana) and coffee (cacao powder, coffee and coconut almond milk)
