Happy Halloween! I hope everyone is looking forward to dressing up or handing out treats tonight (although I'm sure all of the parties already happened over the weekend). Also, I just wanted to express that my thoughts are with those of you on the east coast. I've been watching some of the news coverage on hurricane Sandy, and it looks pretty intense. Stay safe and warm :)

Question of the month: What did you eat today? You can pick any day or an average day.

I decided to pick an average day, since that is probably the easiest - and the most telling. I will preface this by saying that I'm not perfect. I try to eat as healthy and as well balanced as possible, but I'm no Jillian Michaels. Lately, I've been really attempting to cut some extra calories because I'm looking ahead to my wedding next year. We all want to look (and feel) our best on our big day. I do indulge and give in to some cravings, but I try to pick up where I left off and go back to healthy eating again. However, I'm not consumed by it, and there are a lot of improvements to be made. Suggestions are welcomed :)



Typical Breakfast:
Bowl of whole grain cereal
or
Whole wheat toast with nutella
or
Starbucks spinach wrap
Starbucks iced soy chai

Typical Snacks:
A cup of Greek yogurt, string cheese, some fruit, veggies with hummus

Typical Lunch:
Half of a turkey and swiss sandwich
or
Greek salad with low fat dressing

Typical Dinner:
Chicken and mixed veggies. I also love to eat salads for dinner.
Dinner is tricky for me, because that's when I'm tempted to eat the most. When I go out, I try to order fish. But sometimes I throw in some steak, potatoes, Mexican food, sushi, and pasta into the mix!


I wish I had some pictures to show, but I just haven't been instagraming my food lately! I think you get the idea though!

What does your typical day look like? Any tips for healthy eating on the go? I drive a lot for work, so my food has to be portable.

    1. Nutella tastes like chocolate! It's really ground up hazel nuts. I'm not sure if its better then peanut butter in terms of nutrients, but it is so good!

  3. Hi gorgeous! Your diet sounds great! I eat like a horse haha!! I've found that the more protein I eat in the morning, the less I eat the rest of the day.

    Happy Halloween :)

    1. I've found the SAME thing...if I have carbs for breakfast I tend to eat badly the rest of the day, but if I can have protein in the morning, I make healthier choices for the rest of the day!

  4. Your eating plan sounds really healthy and on-track!

    I've read a lot of healthy-eating-on-the-go tips - but none of them sound that appetizing to me (oatmeal, smoothies, salads etc - I like them fresh, not after they've been sitting out for a while)...if I do find anything yummy and easy I'll let you know for sure - not that you need them - you're doing such a good job!

    1. Thank you:) lol, I just had candy and frozen yogurt on this fine Halloween night! Not so good for my waistline! I think I'll try eating more protein in the morning like you and Alex suggested.

  6. Good for you! As I am breastfeeding, I really need a healthy eating plan. Thanks for sharing yours. I definitely will keep this in mind. Have a great weekend!

  7. Thank you girls :) It's more of a lifestyle, not really a diet. I started eating this way about three years ago, and I've been a lot healthier ever since! I don't get sick as often as I used to, and my confidence is better overall. I've been slipping back into old habits over the past year, and I think that's due to moving in with my fiance! I really think that couples like to eat together :) It's a work in progress though.
