This is actually what I ate last Saturday. My weekday meals are usually quite boring, so I’d rather show you some weekend eats.
All week I had been craving salads, so I had a big, colorful, filling salad for lunch almost every day. By Saturday I’ve had enough greens and was craving something … different.
Breakfast was the usual. Ajvar and fried egg on the left, peanut butter and tomatoes on the right. Yes, pb and tomatoes! Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it!
Time to get real around here. My meals aren’t always perfectly healthy, and I do crave ‘junk food’ from time to time. Whenever that happens, I honor my cravings and enjoy a reasonable portion. Just like this frozen veggie pizza that I had for lunch. I chose one with a lot of vegetables on top, and shared it with my husband.
Dinner was a simple Korean-style meal: pan-fried tofu with soy sauce, rice, and steamed broccoli. Look, it’s green!
In my opinion, a day is not complete with a little sweet treat. So I made myself a late night smoothie, with frozen strawberries, banana, soy milk, and protein powder, topped with chocolate chips and shredded coconut.
Cravings -> satisfied!
Do you honor your cravings? Or do you rather try to stay ‘on track’?
P.S. By the way, today is my birthday. Just sayin’.
