Hi friends! In my latest video, I’m sharing one of my many days of eating. This time it’s all about eating “unhealthy” foods. Emphasis on the quotes. On this day, I ate foods that are stereotypically considered “unhealthy”. Foods like bagels, mac and cheese, and pasta. For me, I’m all about Food Freedom these days. And I find being non-restrictive with my eating works best for me. In the grand scheme of things, I don’t worry about eating these kinds of foods. My overall lifestyle is healthy. And things balance out nicely. No need to get anxious about eating any more! Phew!

Eating “Unhealthy” Foods
For breakfast, I started actually pretty healthy with a small green smoothie. I rarely do smoothies for breakfast because they’re not usually filling enough for me. Even with protein powder added in.
So for breakfast #2 I had an everything bagel with plain cream cheese. Plus coffee. While I used to overeat bagels (having them every day didn’t work for me), I now like to enjoy them about once a week or so.
For lunch, I ate at the office cafeteria. On the menu: BBQ tofu, mac and cheese, roasted broccoli, cole slaw, and cornbread. Plus water to drink.
And for dinner, I had more carbs! Spaghetti with veggie sausage, marinara sauce, and roasted veggies on the side.
This has been a recipe I’ve been eating a lot. And it’s SO easy.
I’ll be sharing it very soon. Hopefully tomorrow if I can get everything edited.

After dinner, I had some coconut milk yogurt with granola and organic farmers market blueberries. Plus a banana!
I actually ended up overeating just a bit and was a little uncomfortably full. I wanted to mention this in case any of you are trying intuitive eating and find it difficult to eat enough and also not too much. To me, intuitive eating is an ongoing practice. With time, you get a better sense of how much to eat. But it’s not uncommon to over or under-do it from time-to-time.
The important thing is to not beat yourself up about it. Take it as a lesson learned and move on.
One of the best things intuitive eating has taught me is to not stress so much about food. While different things work for everyone, this has been great for me! And maybe you’d enjoy it too?
