Flirty & Fun Food Fashion

I’ve never enjoyed clothing fashion, but I think I find the same sense of delight and fun in mixing, matching and accessorizing my meals as others do in mixing, matching, and accessorizing their outfits.

I try to stock my shelves with what’s in season, but always need my staples.

Every meal includes veggies, protein, and a healthy source of carbohydrates, just like every outfit needs a top, bottom, and shoes.  From there, depending on my mood, I either stick to the basics or get wild and crazy with the accessories.

If you haven’t started coloring outside the lines with your meals, I encourage you to give it a try.  Nothing makes healthy foods more fun then figuring out how to make them fit your mood/cravings in surprising ways!

Sandwiches/wraps, salads,  and simple skillets are great ways to get started.

Lunch today…

Into the skillet:  1 onion, 1 potato, a few mushrooms, black beans, 1/2 bunch kale.

Sauce added near the end:  squirts of hot sauce and yellow mustard, drizzle of ginger salad dressing.

Sprinkled on the top: 1/4 avocado chopped, dried cranberries.

It was zesty, sweet & delicious – just like me today :).

My favorite free-styling veggies: kale, spinach, arugula, onions, mushrooms, carrots, peppers.

Proteins: tempeh, seitan, beans, tofu.

Carbs: brown rice, quinoa, Ezekiel bread.

Seasonings:  whatever’s in the fridge, fruit bowl, and/or spice cabinet!  Get creative!

Here’s where I am with the challenge so far this week:

Monday: even calories, 2 hours fitness (hot yoga & 2 miles)

Tuesday: 1000 calorie deficit, 4.4 hours (hot yoga, 4 miles, Muay Thai, grappling)

Wednesday: 1000 calorie deficit, 3.5 hours (hot yoga, 3 miles, MMA)

So far today – hot yoga, 2 miles.  Looking forward to Muay Thai & grappling tonight!
