Hey loves, happy Monday!
Unfortunately I have a confession to make….I’ve still been eating meat (and for perfectly good reasons too 🙂😂). Just thankful now that I have access to buying the groceries I need, and so thankfully I officially am on it now!
This isn’t something I wanted to start empty handed, so I made sure to be fully prepared!
As of yesterday, I decided to pass down meat, and instead jumpstart on my pescatarian/vegetarian goal (which I told myself would start today but hey, the small advantage does help).
My food diary
So because I was rushing for early Sunday service, I wasn’t able to take a quick pic of my breakfast! But just to list it, I had a cinnamon raisin bagel toasted with cream cheese and a side of strawberries.
As a snack, I ate some pita chips and hummus.
And as you can see for lunch, I ate some scrumptious shrimp tacos and guacamole with chips! If you are in the South Williamsburg area (over by the East River Ferry line) make sure to check out the most recently renovated park area. The restaurant I ate from is called Tacocina. Food is tasty and the scenery is beautiful!
Lastly, for dinner I had pizza at Slice restaurant over by Long Island City (which is one of my fav little spots. We can agree it isn’t healthy but hey it beats eating meat!
(Moving forward though, I hope to come across less greasy food selections when dining out).
Really looking forward to the perks of this food journey
As we all know, eating healthy (or healthier) comes with great physical, emotional and even psychological benefits. And with the summer heat, I could really use all the energy and concentration! Not too sure how long this will last but it’s definitely worth a try!
After taking great consideration to how food affects the human body, I definitely can see myself doing this long term.
Those who know me personally know I always have headaches and am prone to extreme nausea (which gathering from the book, Woman Code, I need to eat accord to my metabolism and blood sugar levels. What we believe is normal actually reflects hormonal imbalances which must be evaluated). With altering my diet regimen, I really hope to feed my body the nutrients it needs.
Even if it’s not limited to just fish, I think a flexatarian diet will do (for those of you who aren’t sure what this is, a flexatarian is someone who eats plant based with occasional meat included in their food regimen).
I hope through my journey, you all find inspiration to be health conscious. What we put in our bodies is so important, so please consider all that I have to share. Caring for your body is a must, treat it with love❤️
And before you leave!
