It’s been a hot-minute since I’ve posted a WIAW recap and I know you’re dying to see my oatmeal again. First, I wanted to talk about something near and dear to my heart….fruit.
I love fruit. In fact, I can count on one hand the fruits I don’t love (pineapple, grapefruit, oranges, kiwi). I can probably out-fruit you on any given day. Yes, I just tried to make out-fruit you a thing. But there are many people, bloggers, health nuts who don’t love fruit. I do believe in “everything in moderation,” but I feel like some people intentionally limit their fruit intake because of the sugar and carbohydrate count.
While I completely understand and have experienced the effects of eating too much fruit, I don’t understand how fruit can be as “feared” as processed foods with added sugar. I’m 100% not an RD but a bowl of melon seems like a better snack than a candy bar, right? Especially when you eat a “normal” serving size and incorporate a variety of foods into your overall diet. I think fruit should be treated like every other food, including vegetables. Too much of anything isn’t good.
Fruit is my go-to snack and because eating it works well for my body it’s not something I plan on limiting anytime soon. How do you feel about the sugar in fruit debate?
Now for the food, including lots of fruit, from yesterday.
Two bowls of oatmeal with Wild Friend’s Honey Sunflower Butter and strawberries
A big bowl of grapes (in my dirty oatmeal bowl)
Big salad bowls are still a thing at home. I literally cleaned out the fridge with this one. Romaine + raw zucchini noodles + full avocado, grilled chicken, tomatoes, spaghetti squash and carrots with balsamic vinaigrette.
Un-pictured apple and kombucha
Courtesy of my rockin’ mom. If we’re being honest, I ate 3 servings of this dinner. Quinoa (cooked in vanilla almond milk), zoodles, cashews, avocado, raw salmon with a honey-lime sauce.
Followed by a big plate of watermelon. Unfortunately it was shared.
Many spoonfuls of almond butter. Perfect end to a great day.
Back to Miami I go…for just a little longer :)
