Since Tuesday was completely devoid of veggies I made sure to fit some into every single meal today! My life is still so all over the place and some days I don’t even come close to eating the healthiest diet. I try to make up for those days by getting in extra nutrients on the days where I can. Healthy living is more how your week looks than any one day in isolation.
For breakfast I got in a massive dose of Potassium and Vitamin K, aka pumpkin.
Into the blender went:
- 1 medium banana
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 cup Plain Fat-free Stonyfield yogurt
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
I ended up with a massive smoothie!
Lunch was all about Folate, or chick peas.
I topped a leftover half serving of channa marsala with some mango chutney.
I also snacked on this baggie of Combos during my last class.
I didn’t say every food choice was about nutrition, some things you eat just for fun!
Dinner was all about Lycopene (and some others), with baked eggplant in tomato sauce.
This dish was so darn good, even as leftovers! A billion times better than it looks, that’s for sure. I’m going to publish the recipe soon as part of a Foodbuzz sample post, it deserves some love.
The other half of dinner was mini rigatoni with sharp cheddar and evoo.
This bowl was delicious and I definitely went back for a full serving of seconds! Plus a few big handfuls of unphotographed kettle chips; we had some reeeeeeally frustrating things happen at school today and I might have been stress nibbling a bit.
When you eat for health do you tend to look at things day by day or take more of a weekly approach?
