Today I thought I would share what my current dinner generally looks like.
Before I go into the actual meal I figured it would be best to explain my approach to my new healthy lifestyle and how much like a Pokemon I expect it to evolve over time! So I am treating my meals like big play sets of Lego’s. I started with a healthy base trying to stay under on calories while not going over on my carbs and fats. Every few days I add more Lego blocks (food) to the mix to fill the gaps and sometimes I have to tear it down and rebuild parts of it to make it more healthy. Once a meal is fully built I will use it for a while till I am sick of it then I will start a new set of Lego’s, but I can always throw that old set back into the mix. By doing this I feel I am really relearning everything I know about food and creating my own go to meals.
Above is my current set of dinner Lego’s! This meal consists of the following.
1 High fiber low carb wrap
1 Cup of pressure cooked black beans
2 Handfuls of salad.
1 Serving of Kraft light asian sesame dressing
8 Oz of grilled chicken
In this example I added some tomatoes as building blocks but I don’t know if I plan to keep them.
