Too Much of Good Stuff

I eat pretty healthy for the most part. I make sure I get my nutrients. Eat my vegetables, avoid fried food.

But there are certain things that are good for you in moderation.

For example, cereal. My little secret enemy.

It’s fine if I have ONE bowl per day. And it’s healthy too! (Kashi or just granola) BUT having more than 10 bowls a day (no hyperbole there) is NOT okay.

Dear self, I know it’s yummy and healthy, but in moderation. I should know when my limit is and when I get addicted.

So here’s to continuing my health journey and changing habits such as too many bowls of cereal. (plus who likes farting too much? Not me!)

1/2 Banana
1/3 Cup Ice

Put it in the blender and mix till desired texture!

Close your eyes. Take a sip.

I dare you not to smile after your first sip. I dare you.

Yeah. I know. Frowning is not an option.

Everything is pretty much an estimate. There is no certain measurement… it’s all about what you desire! Have fun with it and comment below!

Lunch:
Salad with avocado
1/2 Banana

Exercise:
High School Soccer game

Steamed chicken (with ginger sauce)
Butternut squash (honey, cinnamon, nutmeg…butter)

Ugh. Procrastination on an English essay about William Blake. Must… leave… now…
