“I like to eat…I like to eat…I like to eat…eat…apples and bananas…”
Let’s change up the words a bit…
How about I say…
“I like to eat…I like to eat…I like to eat… eat…chocolate and cookies, and candy, and chew gum… “
The list goes on and on!!!!
All the things that are detrimental to my health and well-being is what my body craves!!!
This desire is heightened when I’m overwhelmed, stressed, sad, and/or bored.
You would think that after eating a whole bag of dark chocolate almond bark in one sitting, that it would curate that craving…
I want more…
Tostitos with salsa,
….the list goes on and on…
Does this sound familiar to you?
If no…that’s awesome.
If yes…then you’re like me… you know the struggle is real.
I don’t fully understand the science behind my cravings…but I do know that I need it to end.
Maybe it could be that my vegan diet limits me and subconsciously I’m looking for a replacement.
Truth is…my vegan diet is pretty boring.
I eat the same meals EVERYDAY!!!
You heard me…EVERYDAY!!!!
Breakfast is a smoothie most of the time. If I’m bored, I would grill a vegan hot dog or burger with salsa or I would scramble some tofu.
Lunch is usually a vegan burger with broccoli, salsa and Chao vegan cheese, sometimes baked fries or potatoes wedges.
Dinner…awe man…lately I’ve been splurging… I’ll eat rice, beans, chips with salsa, kale chips, an apple, a tangerine, and a veggie burger.
I know…I know… it’s a lot…
Like I said, the struggle is real!!!
I will not be defeated.
A new month is approaching and to me, that always signifies a new start.
I’m going to add some color to my plate and flavor to my life!!
Are there any predominately plant-based eaters out there in need of some great plant-based recipes/tips… in order to create foods that help to ignite your palate in a new way?
Are there any non-plant-based eaters out there willing to incorporate new types of foods into your diet?
SisArias United is taking a different turn for the month of May! We are going to focus our posts on healthy plant-based meals.
We invite you to join us as we embark upon this journey of cooking new foods, and trying out new recipes, as we share them with you all!!!
If your meal is clean… your food can actually be your comfort/healing…(just be mindful not to overdo it still…*clears throat*) Temperance (in moderation) still matters. Lol
