Dear friends, as I promised, I am going to show you what I do and how easy it is to keep the weight in moderation, eat relatively well and substitute bad foods with foods that will make you feel happy, healthy and energized!:)
2 things that help me do this are:
This kind of food scale:
And this app:
This app is built into any Android phone. It will help you to playfully put calories in and see how healthy you actually eat. I set my limit at 1500 calories a day, but almost always go a little over it. I am trying not to go over 1800 calories and today I did 1700 calories, which is good for getting rid of calories. I try to take a yoga class or/and workout 4 days a week, so it will make it easier for my body to constantly maintain my weight and metabolism rate.
So, what I ate today for breakfast:
Of course, I, as a person who, before moving to GA, used to live in NY, drink coffee. To make it less harmful I add about 100 grams of Dream Blends Rice and Quinoa instead of milk and 15 grams of honey to it, so it feels warm and tastes delicious.
In this breakfast I used:
Cinnamon Raisin Organic Gluten Free Bread (Rudi’s) – 1 serving
Low Fat Turkey Bacon (Butterball) – 2 slices
1 egg – to fry it I used extra virgin olive oil. In order to use less oil, I use a cooking brush to oil a pan.
Broccoli Sprouts – 0.5 serving
Portabello Mushrooms – 0.3 cup
Tomatoes – about 50 g
Arugula – 15 g
Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise – 5 g
All of this including coffee came down to 374 cal and was super-delicious!
I subbed the regular bacon with the turkey bacon and still used a slice of a delicious, but organic and gluten- free bread! Yumm!
Next meal was very simple but scrumptious! I didn’t have time to cut the peaches and the strawberries, but a promise is a promise, so here it is:
Snack: Oh My Yog! 3 layered strawberry yogurt with 1 peach and 2 large strawberries – 259 cal
Lunch! Oh My Lunch!
Baked Chicken Thighs with no extra oil added – 130 g
Hint of lime tortilla chips 32 g
Guacamole: 1/2 Avocado, red onion – 15g, tomatoes – 50 g, jalapeño peppers – 4 g, cilantro.
1/2 Lime Juice
Well. It was VERY GOOD!
Then I had my cheat drink Starbucks Green Tea Latte!
Well, I wouldn’t usually do this, but today my husband and I had a meeting at Starbucks so
Dinner – salad. Very nutritious!
Zesty Sriracha Carrot Hummus (Eat Well, Embrace Life) – 52 g
Sweet peppers – 20 g
Strawberries – 57 g
Broccoli Sprouts – 17 g
Avocado – whole – 131 g
Cress – 17 g (0 cal!!!)
Arugula – 16 g
Spinach – 21 g
So, guys, you can see here how simple it is to eat delicious and fresh food with JOY!
All I had today was only 1723 cal and my nutrition score, given by SHealth is 81, which is pretty good. Here’s the breakdown:
Also, I am trying not to eat a lot of diary products, so as a result I usually lack Calcium. But I promise, tomorrow I’ll be better!
Have you seen all this food?! It is so much better than this:

So, guys! Let’s watch our diets and support each other in our healthy lifestyle.
I myself can eat a couple of servings of lo mein here and there, but generally I try to eat healthy and love my body as it deserves to be loved.
EnJoy your dreams and cheers. 🙂
