Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to another What I ate Wednesday! Hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. This week is another collection of meals from the past few days plus my weekly meal prep.
Not sure if anyone has actually noticed but it is very rare that I will just post a full day of what I ate. Reason being I hate comparison. I remember way back when I was the most critical of my eating I would read up as best as I could on how many calories I should eat, what I should eat, etc… What I ate Wednesday would have been a gold mine for me. I would have taken notes, thought I was eating too much, not enough etc… Every body is different and no two people are going to have the same needs when it comes to nutrients. So long story short this is why I don’t believe in posting a full, exact day of meals, because I don’t think anyone should fall into the comparison trap. Your body knows best what you need, so listen to it!
Okay that being said let’s get on to some of my favorite meals from the week.
First off, the prep. Lean ground meat, quinoa, bell peppers, roasted carrots, broccoli, and zucchini. Perfect to mix and match for meals throughout the week.
Example one of prep coming together: Quinoa, lean ground beef, broccoli, and carrots.
Example 2: Quinoa, edamame, broccoli, zucchini, bell pepper, and carrots.
Spaghetti Squash Bake (recipe is coming I’m just going to change some things around) Served with shrimp.
Paleo Dinner: Steak, asparagus, and spinach and cherry tomatoes.
Cooked Mixed Berries.
To make these all I do is combine blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries and simmer over low heat with 1/2 of an orange zested along with the juice from 1/2 of the orange.
Last but not least I had to share this picture of Sophie. It’s been freezing and she loves to be outside so I make her wear sweaters. I promise I’m not that person who just dresses her for fun!…or maybe I kind of do
So tell me: Do you fall suspect to the comparison trap when it comes to nutrition, food, and eating?
