you are what you eat: here’s what I ate yesterday

I haven’t missed a day of yoga and meditation since I made the commitment on January 2nd to practice everyday this year. As it goes, one positive thing leads to another and I’m also more conscious about my diet. When I say “diet” I mean what I eat each day, not “diet” in the form of trying to lose weight. Although it’s a funny thing, I have lost 5 pounds without “dieting”.

I’ve always enjoyed eating healthily. I love fruits and vegetables and know that I feel so much better when I eat well. But like all of us, from time to time I slip into eating patterns that could be better. So now is the time to pay a bit more attention and be present (ah, yoga summed up in two words!) with my food choices.

Here is what I ate yesterday. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Love it? Hate it? And I’d really like to know what YOU eat. I’m kinda of geek like that. Call me a food geek. If you like this post (you can actually like it below to let me know), then maybe I’ll feature this once or twice a month.

Breakfast

2 eggs lightly fried in a touch of butter with steamed baby kale and garlic

(cooking notes: OMG! the creaminess of the eggs with the garlic and kale = fabulous!)

Lunch

Tilapia with Asian Green Sauce and brown rice

(cooking notes: HOLY YUMMO! Did I lick the plate? I believe I did. This very healthy, low-fat dish is so delicious. The sauce is a delightful mix of cilantro, lime juice, ginger, scallions, etc.)

Snacks during the day

tangelo

fresh juice from my juicer – carrots, celery, apple and ginger root

Ines Rosales Sweet Olive Oil Tortas

Dinner

Mushroom Stroganoff with Goat Cheese
