Rather than bore you all with another post where I eat the same thing (Kashi cereal, oatmeal with raisins lol), I thought I’d do something a little different. I’ve been trying to clean up my diet lately by weeding out processed foods and replacing them with healthy, more natural choices. For this WIAW, I thought I’d focus on some healthy swaps. Everything pictured here was eaten on Monday.
Every morning, I begin my day with a cup of coffee with almond milk. I then follow that cup up with at least two more at work. So, this week I tried something new.
Rather than go right for the coffee, I drank hot water with lemon.
Instead of a an almond butter sandwich on a bagel thin, I ate this:
Baby spinach topped with green peppers, cucumbers and raspberry walnut dressing. It was delicious and I wish I had brought a much bigger container to work!
A few hours later, instead of eating my Kashi sea salt crackers, I ate this:
Confession: I don’t want you to think I ate perfectly healthy on Monday. I didn’t. The salad was not enough to hold me over and I was practically dying of hunger by 3:00 so I attacked this cookie I found in the kitchen.
I’m justifying this as a “healthy swap” because I had a choice between this or a chocolate chip cookie and I went with the oatmeal raisin….that counts, right?
What are some healthy things you’ve been eating lately?
