For those of you that might be fairly new to my blog, I just wanted to say that the way I eat now while in maintenance - is a bit different from the way I ate while I was losing weight. Also the more I did this and the more I learned about healthy foods and Non-healthy foods, I changed the foods I ate.
Most people - and I was one of them before - don't know that most of the foods they are eating now are so bad for us. Or maybe they just don't care what they eat. I never did before. The commercial or package says something to the effect that it is healthy - so we just blindly believe it.
As I started The BFC and eating healthy I learned more and more from my BFC and Bloggin friends. We exchange what we learn and what we think will fit into our lifestyle of eating and the support we give and get from one another is so important I found out.
I know now that all that packaged and processed food has little to no nutritional value and makes us FAT! Certain things like white grains, potatoes, corn, many-many fruits - all stuff I LOVED before and still do actually - I just can't eat anymore on a regular basis like I used to.
I learned through trial and error when I did eat startchy-carbs to pick the ones that were the healthiest. The ones that have the least carbs and sugar and the most fiber and protein. That's why I started My Fave Products page. I share the good-healthy products with all of you that I find.
Even though certain foods ARE healthy for us that are high in carbs I did not eat them hardly at all. Like wheat pasta, brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, stuff like crackers or cereals - I ate and continue to eat very little of these because of their very high carb content.
The only fruit I EVER ate while losing was a few blackberries or raspberries in a cup with my breakfast every day. They have the least sugar. Now you might see me eat blueberries and a strawberry now and then.
You have to make what you will feel is sacrifices in the beginning in order for you to lose the weight. That's because everyone else around you and everyone else you know is eating that CRAP - so why can't you once in a while - right?
WRONG!! You have to change the way you look and feel about food completely. Yes food tastes good but it is to nourish your body. So learn to eat at home more instead of going out to eat. You can control what you put in your mouth better that way.
If you like sweet treats like me than learn to make you own healthy versions of them like myself and a bunch of us do on here. Click the recipe tab above.
OK I'm gonna stop shaking my finger at you all. for NOW.. LOL
My breakfast yesterday was Alpine valley 12 grain toast with coconut butter on top, berries and eggs and turkey bacon.
cauliflower tortillaswith some canned chicken, horseraddish mayo, bacon bits and avocado. Oh yeah and 2 of those Almond butter OMG cookies.
Sunflower seed butter which I love by the way. My first time using sunflower seeds. good flavor.
cauliflower crust pizza with some spicy hummus, slices of tomato, cheese and turkey pepperoni. I only ate half (so half for lunch today) and yeah again 2 more of those cookies. SO GOOD.
