I’m bringing back my food journal series! Sure, I share plenty of recipes and pics of what i eat but it’s not that often you see EVERYTHING I ate in a day which I know can be very helpful.
Please keep in mind that this is what works for ME. This is my balance. Your balance may look a lot different and that’s perfectly okay! This post isn’t about making comparisons. It’s just meant to be one example of what healthy, balanced eating may look like.
I do follow a vegan diet, like 98% of the time, but I also make a point to eat intuitively. I don’t count calories or macros. I don’t weigh or measure my food. I do my best to listen to what my body needs both physically and emotionally.
On this particular day I was coming off of a few high sugar days so I had major cravings for sugar! Probably why I went heavy on the carbs. I was also at my parents house in Canada, hence all the French labels. haha
So there you have it! To me, eating is never about being perfect. I want to truly enjoy my food and have it make me feel good physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually! Some days I have 8 servings of veggies and some days it’s more like 4. Some days I eat cereal. Some days I eat superfoods. Some days I take supplements and some days I don’t (or I forget like on this particular day haha).
It’s all about balance and trusting my body! It took me a looonggg time to get to that point so if you aren’t there yet, I totally get that! But you can get there.
