It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Day on a Plate post! (Selling our first home then moving created chaos in my life but I’m finally getting back to a good routine.)
Each week (for real this time) I’ll be posting about REAL MEALS, made by me, that I actually eat. Hopefully, this will help you realize that the work you do in the kitchen doesn’t need to be fancy or complicated because, well, life. And don’t get me wrong, taste is my first priority so just because I’m eating healthy food doesn’t mean I’m choking down nasty stuff.
For any of you who have Hypothyroidism (like me.. read here), coffee may not be ideal, I know. It’s a guilty pleasure that is killing me to give up! Otherwise, the rest of what’s reflected below is PERFECT for creating hormone balance and health. ♥
Anyway, here are a few Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner pictures from over the past week. All taken with my iPhone. All very easy. They’re Paleo and Whole30 compliant… and pretty soon they’ll even be AIP! 😀
Day on a Plate: What Does a Day of Healthy Eating Actually Look Like?
Note: I am guilty of consuming more fruit than I should so don’t argue with me over that. You will not win. I love fruit!
This is my go-to breakfast when I’m in a hurry. It’s too high in carbs for you Keto folks but it’s otherwise very healthful. Even though it’s simple, it ensures I have something in my stomach before heading out for a busy morning! And that cuts down the risk of me making bad food choices later on in the day.
Being a field trip chaperone means packing a picnic lunch! Taco salad was convenient, tasted great and held me over until dinner – thanks to the healthy fat in the guac and in the macaroons! I’ll be posting my recipe for them later this week. 😉
Doesn’t this look amazing?! The pic is actually of the plate I fixed for my husband (over a bed of organic basmati rice) because I forgot to take a picture of my plate (no rice). The recipe is called Healthy Bruschetta Chicken and I found it on TheWholeCook.com. It’s every bit as delicious as it looks and wasn’t hard at all to make!
There you have it! None of these meals were complicated or over thought yet VERY nutritious and tasty. They give me a nice variety of healthy fats, greens (typically I do eat a more nutrient dense green besides iceberg lettuce but that one goes so well with taco salad), vegetables, fruits and organic meat.
