Sorry for the late post, work has been absolutely manic this morning (I probably shouldn’t be blogging at work at all, but I figure I’m allowed a little break here and there!)
Breakfast was muesli with strawberries, raspberries and skimmed milk. I know I have this a lot, but it’s just so good. And easily transportable, too (I eat breakfast at work).
In case you’re wondering, this is the brand of muesli I eat day to day:
I love that it’s organic, sugar and salt-free and wheat-free. I have nothing against wheat, but I eat a lot of bread so it’s nice to have grains like barley and rye in the mornings.
Anyway… as I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how great the blogging community is, and how much food blogs have taught me. So I decided to make a little list of the main things I’ve learned:
- Green Monsters are fab – seriously, if you haven’t tried these – do it. I’m still amazed how you can shove a whole load of spinach into a smoothie and not even be able to taste it.
- Peanut butter goes with everything – I used to think peanut butter was something you put on toast. Oh how my horizons have expanded! Oatmeal, cereal, smoothies, cookies – the list is endless.
- Running DOES get easier with practise – I’ve always thought running was a natural gift you either had or you didn’t. But since reading fitness blogs I’ve learned that, with a lot of determination and perseverance, even I can come to enjoy – and be good at – running.
- Balance is key – one bowl of ice-cream is not going to make me fat. Healthy living is all about balance and moderation – you can enjoy chocolate and still lose/maintain weight.
- I’m not alone – so many people struggle with eating well and having a positive body image. Reading food blogs has made me realise I’m not alone. It’s such a great community and I’m so proud to be a part of it.
- Eating well should not be a chore – it should be something you enjoy and want to do. If you don’t enjoy the foods you eat, then what’s the point?
Have a nice day everyone!
