Confession & A New Direction!

Okay, confession time! My eating has been out of control these last couple of weeks.
I’ve picked convenience over hassle with the busy days and if a cookie has been placed in front of me, a cookie has been eaten….

After watching Jen Heward increase her health, energy and change her physique over the last year I feel inspired to follow in her footsteps with a whole food, natural diet. For at least the rest of this month and see how I feel in regard to energy and self-control over foods. The only ‘processed’ items I will still have is my BCAA’s, whey protein and morning coffee. I’ll still be macro tracking to make sure I’m on target with my fitness goals just changing the way I fill them. So long halo top, muller lights, bread and energy drinks!

Here are some of the foods I’ll be including on my menu:

Non-processed snacks:
Peanut butter and oat energy balls
Fruit smoothies or fruit platters
Veggie platters and homemade salsa
Almonds, Walnuts or Pecans
Medjool dates with almonds
Boiled eggs
Overnight oats with almond milk
Frozen grapes
Plain greek/natural yoghurt
Apples and peanut butter
Buckwheat pancakes (buckwheat is not actually a wheat it comes from a seed of a flowering plant and then made into a flour)

Lower carb veggies: spinach, asparagus, kale, green beans, brussels, bell peppers, broccoli, olives, avocado, zucchini, carrots, cucumber.
Lower carb fruits: Watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, peaches)

Non-processed carb sources: Buckwheat, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, oats, beans, lentils, brown rice, Buckwheat and sweet potato noodles.

All fish, poultry and red meats are still on the menu as long as they are prepared by me or a trusted source!
Drinks: Morning coffee, I can’t live without my morning coffee. Green tea, water, lemon water, camomile tea.

I’m starting this with immediate effect and I’ll be tracking progress from Monday, because Monday is my official start day for everything haha!
Wish me luck!! Blonde xo
