Every now and then…

6 Aug

…I have to put up a healthy food post. After all, this blog originally started as just a simple food blog where I spill about all my favorite things to eat, and every now and then my unfavorite things to eat.

Well recently, I decided that since this is my very last year in my twenties (dun, dun dunnnnn), I want to be in the best shape that I’ve ever been in in my entire life. I want to enter my thirties like Beyonce and I have the same trainer and chef and life in general.

This meant getting back in it with my secret weapon, my trainer Austin at Energym who is amazing, by the way and most importantly EATING RIGHT!

Luckily, I live and die for gym so it’s never been a problem for me to get up and go work-out, but unfortunately, the other thing I live and die for is food. And it is the most important part, so they say, in getting healthy and not just losing weight!

I am not big on numbers when it comes to kgs/lbs because I believe it’s about loving the way you look and also, BEING HEALTHY. But when I found out my body fat percentage was soaring through the skies and WAY higher than it should be for my height, size, etc., I took that fairly seriously and decided to change my eating altogether in order to get that down, even more seriously than getting my actual weight down.

This means, now I have to “Eat Clean.” I’ve so far cut out a few things, or rather, let me be honest, dramatically reduced the intake of a few things. Those few things being wheat, because of the gluten in it, which is a major contributor to bloating, dairy, refined sugars, fried foods, and anything that is overly processed. Horrendous, I know, but health matters so I am sooooooo ready to take this on! Hope I’ll be able to write back to you all in a few months with some great updates on this whole health kick, but don’t you worry, I’ll still be posting delicious yummy pics of all the goodies I’m baking for Bella Pastry.

But for now, here’s a few pics of very tasty, healthy breakfast pics…..

This I made for breakfast this morning. I bought a really good Gluten-Free Waffle Mix from the supermarket. Its pretty easy to make. You just mix with a little oil and some water and put it on a waffle pan. Voila. Surprisingly it was super delicious and I couldn’t even tell they were gluten-free. I had them with some scrambled egg-whites, a little Slimmer’s Choice Medium Fat Gouda, half a grapefruit and my secret weapon, Green Tea. So filling and SO GOOD.

And this was a similar breakfast, but its Oat Bran made with water, half a grapefruit (I love me some grapefruit), 1/2 an avocado, 2 hardboiled egg whites and again, Green Tea.

It’s important to eat well, but eat enough….hope I’m not the only one on this health tip!! Good luck to those of you who are with me 🙂
