This is what a nutritionist eats in a day…
Sometimes the most overwhelming part of eating healthy is choosing what to eat. I get it. One thing the readers of this blog alway want to know is “what should I eat?”
And, in a very anti-climactic fashion, my answer is that there is no “right” answer. Nutrition is highly individualized, and there is not one correct formula.
One of the most fun parts of the Paleo journey, in my opinion, is that you get to know your body really well. You start to understand what foods affect it negatively and what foods make it feel like a sparkly, magical, fine-tuned machine that’s radiating from the inside-out.
That being said, I often get asked what I eat on a daily basis. And while I think you will surprisingly underwhelmed, and maybe even relieved, I thought it’d be a fun post that gives you a look at all the noms I eat in a day.
So, here we go…
Waking up – 6am:
First thing I do is fill a mason jar with water, squeeze some lemon, and drink. Starting your morning with at least a glass of water not only re-hydrates your cells after a long sleep (cells get thirsty too!), but the added lemon also helps kickstart your digestion. The lemon juice’s acidity makes the body think that it needs to produce bile to aid in digestion. This helps food you eat later in the day break down better.
Breakfast – 8am:
My formula for breakfast is: veggies, protein, healthy fats. The type of each varies dependent upon my mood, but those three things are there in one form or another EVERY time.
This morning, I went with a piece of leftover salmon from the previous night, some eggs scrambled in ghee, and a side of steamed broccoli.
Veggies: Broccoli. Check.
Healthy fats: ghee, egg yolks. Check.
Protein: eggs, salmon. Check
