My first(!!) What I Ate Wednesday

Lately, I have been craving peanut butter SO much. Like seriously, I eat it by the spoonful. I go through phases with my cravings, like one time I had like a 3 week span where I craved tortillas everyday (so weird), another time I craved eating frozen fruit every night which also lasted for a couple weeks, the same with Wheat bites cereal and countless others.

Enough about that, we have more important thing to do! It’s Wednesday! Wednesdays have always been my favorite day to read blogs. I seriously enjoy looking at what other people ate a little too much. Here goes my first WIAW:

Breakfast–a big bowl of Kashi original cereal and some All Bran cereal underneath (that you can’t see) with Almond Milk and a bowl of Fage Greek Yogurt.

Lunch— started off with a Red Delicious apple (my fave), cut into wedges using my nifty little gadget.Image

Then, I made myself a burrito on a whole wheat tortilla with Light Life Smart Ground Original Crumbles (a good option for protein if you’re a vegetarian, like me, or even if you’re not), swiss cheese, and some spinach.

Lunch also consisted a glass of sun tea (or two), and a large salad with tomatoes, lettuce, shredded carrots, garbanzo beans, walnuts, and some balsamic vinagrete to top it off. ImageImage

Afternoon Snack(s)– 

An orange and a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter. (told you!)Image

Dinner– was eaten super late (10:30 PM) because I went to go see the Hunger Games (finally!!!!) with a friend. It was so good, the movie and my dinner, that is 😉

This big bowl contained a pile of barley, Trader Joes’ Meatless Meatballs (I mashed them up and mixed them in), and a huge pile of stir-fry vegetables on top, which is pretty much all you can see in this picture.ImageHappy Wednesday, Everyone!!

Do you have any odd cravings? Do you let yourself give in to cravings?

It’s been a long time comin’…

Well first off, my name is Shelby. I’m 19, and am a community college student in Los Angeles (born and raised). I am an undecided major, trying to decide between Pre-med and nutritional sciences. I am a proud vegetarian and have been since I was in the eighth grade (5 years). I know, I know writing (and reading) introductions is always awkward, so I apologize. But, bear with me while I get this blog started up.

Don’t make fun of my socks

I have been reading nutrition and healthy living blogs since last Fall and never thought of making one myself. That is until my mom told me that I should. I told her, “No one would want to read about my life”. I still think I’m right, but hey, there’s no harm in trying.

(I love my cat way too much)

Anyways, I love food because it’s so good. But, I also hate food because it’s so good. Thus, sometimes I eat way too much of it. I am trying to figure out how to become less neurotic about what I eat, and am learning to let myself indulge and not feel guilty. (Hello eating peanut butter by the spoonful!) I need to learn that my life will go on if I eat a slice of cake. I am still learning so join me while I try to let go of eating for perfection and start eating to live and enjoy.

Do any of you have a love-hate relationship with food? Do you feel guilty when you let yourself indulge in a food that is not particularly “healthy”?
