Alright so I still eat like the half ton woman, but not as often, and i've found that I actually enjoy eating lots of fruits and veggies when I thought I would hate it. My boyfriend calls it pig food, cause I chop up a bunch of things and mix it together and TA DA! Its good. haha
I don't think I could ever give up my favorites: Chicken wings, pizza, steak, frog legs, deer... i'd be devistated.
Basically I've been eating "cleaner" WHICH MEANS incorporating more healthy foods lately. I've never been on a diet, but people tell me ALLL THE TIME " OHHH ASHLEYYY YOUR METABOLISM WONT BE LIKE THAT FOREVER, YOU NEED TO STOP EATING SO MUCH PIZZA AND CHICKEN WINGS."
So, now, instead of eating pizza and chicken wings a majority of the days of the week I incorporate a wide variety of foods, but I still eat foods I love A LOT! And its so nice trying new things and I've grown to love fruits and vegetables, never thought I would! Luckily ive never been a fan of snacks, like cake rolls or twinkies or whatever else 7-11 sells. The texture of those "cake treats" freak me out and they taste horrible. Its like chomping on spongebobs corpse.
So I havent made any MAJOR changes, I just incorporate more healthy things such as:
1. more fruit
2. more veggies
3. I only drink water, green tea, or chocolate soy milk. (and sometimes beer... well lots of times beer AND NO I dont like that low calorie stuff)
4. more eggs
im a big fan of smoothies now. usually i add a bunch of fruit, a handfull of spinach and some chia seeds and its always delicious. You should really try it out, its really not that hard to make and you can put whatever your heart desires in them. For example one day I used strawberries, bananas, peanut butter, and almond milk for a more filling snack like smoothie. I feel like a little diva chef when I make these fancy things!
I've been making a bunch of salads lately too, usually a bunch of veggies cut up with a dash of salt and pepper and you dont even need dressing. I find that so weird, I use to pour dressing over everything but it seriously taste AMAZING without! I make all my salads with spinach and then depending on whats in the fridge it usually consist of:
1. green pepper
2. red onion
9. (sometimes I throw in grilled chicken, shrimp, or salmon)
One of Kyles favorites has been my Avocado Nectarine Salsa/Salad. It's such a great snack!
You cube up:
Then add 1 TBSPN of lime juice and a dash of sea salt and ta daaa!!!! All the flavors really go well together
If you have any yummy dishes you'd like to share comment below! I love trying new things!
Below I put some pics of some of the things i've been making lately, and posting on instagram obviously haha YES those are frog legs, and the dish with the meat and veggies is deer meat :)
