I have yet to get on the WIAW posts yet but I can share that I have been loving good old fashioned steel-cut oats for breakfast lately.
A fresh juice for a mid morning snack.
Gosh I really think juicing has been a key to my skin glowing lately! Seriously, I have been able to cut down on face products and still have great results. Loving this
I typically have leftovers for lunch and some sort of nut or energy bar for a mid afternoon snack.
And for dinner, well my usual pile of stuff. This was a good one!
Lots of greens with sautéed tofu.
Anyway every so often I get some really great questions from my blog followers. Recently I have gotten some new followers to my blog because they found me on instagram . Love that and Love IG! I particularly love this question because it comes from another 40 something year old.
Here it is:
“I started following you on Instagram recently. I strive to be fit and I am forty something so your blog appeals to me. I love to workout, but have found after I turned 40 it’s increasingly difficult not to put weight on. I have never dieted just watched my portions. I am intrigued by the way you eat and trying to incorporate more veggies, less sugar etc in my diet. I love your recipes. So my questions:
Do you count calories? I do not. I have to say I have never counted calories, points, carbs nothing. Yes there was a time that I tried to stay away from carbs as much as possible but I found when I removed them from my diet, I wanted them so bad that I would typically binge out when I finally gave in to them. Just recently I have formed a healthier relationship with food. I am focusing on the food I want to eat, should eat and enjoy eating. I find that I don’t crave the bad stuff too often. I also give myself something if I want it. Yes I ate 2 pop tarts last weekend after my long run. No biggie just move on to some healthier eats later on. And please do not ask me to give up wine! But I do not drink it every night.
take supplements? YES many of them . I went to an anti-aging doctor about 3 years ago thanks to this book . She has me on many nutritional supplements (based on my nutritional deficiencies) and I also take natural thyroid medicine, use testosterone and progesterone cream. I really feel like taking the right supplements can change your life. It has changed mine!
What is your opinion on Skinnybits?” Never tried skinny bits but i did try energybits and felt no different. But I have tried ephedra years ago. I do not think any of this stuff works unless you adjust your eating.
Thank you for such greats questions! I love sharing what I have found to work with you all. This is a journey I love being on and recently because of my diet, my supplements and exercise I am feeling pretty good.
