Heyo! How was everyone's weekend? Do anything especially fun? I'm guessing a few of you kicked back, had fun with friends and family, and ate a little more than you normally do throughout the week. And I bet a few you told yourself over the weekend or last night that you would "get back on your diet" or "start eating healthy" again today. Well, I'm here to say that you shouldn't get back on your diet and instead you should start incorporating some of the principles of intuitive eating.
And first on the list are brussels sprouts. People feel pretty negatively about them. But I think they've just gotten a bad rap! Poor, poor brussels. Roasting them is the perfect way to get rid of their bitter flavor and then they can be seasoned various ways or served along with scrambled eggs. Or at least that's what I do...
I mentioned in my last post that I have been learning about and incorporating the principles of intuitive eating into my own life. I also mentioned how much freedom I have found in my own life regarding food and exercise with this new mindset shift. I wanted to share with you all about this approach in the hopes that you find some freedom yourself! Expect more posts to come on this subject.
Oh my goodness. This incredible bowl of deliciousness...I ate it for breakfast for a week straight. I kid you not. I stumbled upon it by accident actually. I was combining bits of several different oatmeal breakfasts/bakes that I like. The result? An incredibly doughy, custard-like oatmeal bake with a caramelized brown sugar crunch that made my mouth think I was eating a snickerdoodle cookie. I just about died and went to heaven.
I hope your Christmas and New Years brimmed over with rich time with family and friends (and good food). I know mine was WAY too short with the people I love so much and get to call my family. Did you do the same old same old, or spice it up a little bit? Isaac and I split our time between both of our families for Christmas and then branched out for New Year's Eve by spending it with another married couple we're friends with. It was super low key, but incredibly fun! There were even 2016 hats and bizookas involved...Yeah, we're pretty wild. :-)
