Balanced Eating

Over the past decade I have tried to find the balance with my nutrition. Sadly, it has taken years to reach a healthy mindset and relationship with food. I have thrown out the “all or nothing” approach and have shifted my entire outlook.  Although it has been a work in progress, I can happily say I am entering my thirties with a good grasp on the whole “balance” thing.

Becoming pregnant forced me to approach nutrition in a whole new way. I was no longer eating to hit a specific goal I created for myself. I was solely eating to provide my son the best nutrients I could give him to grow and develop. I started thinking about how my body could use different foods/nutrients and what benefit they had for my well-being and internal health. That season was a complete game changer for me, and I learned a lot along the way.

I thought I would share some quick tips that have really helped me get to my happy place. If you have anything that works for you, I would love to know!

  1. Have a plan
  2. Don’t place restrictions on yourself (unless there is a health need/doctor recommendation)
  3. Portion your meals & be aware of what you are consuming
  4. Eat nutrition dense foods
  5. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
  6. Only keep what you want in the house
  7. Have food prepped & ready for easy access (and to prevent mindless eating)
  8. Don’t obsess and give yourself grace
  9. Stick to basics
  10. Take care and honor your body…give it what it craves and needs to work easily & efficiently

 

Here is a snapshot of what our eating looks like. We love any and all food in our house!
