Since I haven’t been doing my food journaling any longer and making that accessible. Many have been wondering what am I actually eating that is helping me lose weight? Honestly, it varies day to day but the gist of it is the same. I am never hungry, I’m not taking any “magic pills”. I am not doing no carb, no dairy, no-no-no. I am limiting some foods but I’m not depriving myself either, I am allowing myself to have foods that aren’t so great 10% of the time (this includes dairy and simple carbs). Here is a typical day:
Warm water and lemon
Green smoothie with a lot of greens and a little frozen fruit with a plant based protein powder
Eggs on greens with avocado
Fruit with nuts
Greek yogurt and nuts
BIG salad with quinoa or leftover dinner on top
Sprouts, veggies and chick peas wrapped in swiss chard
Veggies and Hummus
Raw seeds and fruit
Loads of veggies, sweet potato and vegetable protein (or legume) the options are endless!
Brown rice tortillas toasted with salsa
OK…so this may not seem like a lot of food but it is! Seriously, I am not craving anything, I am not hungry and if I was I would eat more. And, writing it out it looks so boring, but it’s not — there are so many delicious recipes that fit into these categories and everything I eat has many layers and dimensions to it. It is fabulously delicious and satisfying. If you are stuck for recipes look at the recipes tab on my site for some that I like!

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
