A lot of women have trouble sticking to a healthy diet, or just knowing what to eat to be healthy. I love having variety in my diet and obviously I don’t eat the same thing EVERY day, but there are certain foods that I do actually eat on most days. Eating similar foods and sticking to a similar eating schedule helps me stay on track and I just find it easier that way.
I also get a lot of questions about my diet, so I’ll try to answer some in this post.
Here are the 10 foods that I usually eat everyday. I will also talk about how I incorporate these foods into my daily diet.
10 FOODS I EAT EVERYDAY
- Strawberries, blueberries or other berries (but mostly strawberries)
- Almond milk
- Chia seeds
- Protein powder
- Raw nuts
- Sweet potato
I know they sound a bit boring, but it’s what works for me and I actually never get sick of them. I would also like to add avocado to this list because I love it and it’s so good for you. But for some reason, I just don’t eat it ALL the time.
I actually have the first 5 ingredients in my smoothies every morning. I usually only have 1/2 banana and then 1 cup of berries. I also freeze my fruit so that the smoothie turns out thick like ice cream, and it is AMAZING. The protein powder also makes it thicker and fluffier somehow. I have done a post about how to choose a protein powder (and also one on why you need protein for fat loss).
And I always add chia seeds because they are so high in fiber!
LUNCH / DINNER
Some of my go to meals are roast vegetable salads with kale, broccoli and sweet potato, or just simple chicken dishes with roast or mash sweet potato and sautéed green vegetables. Sometimes I’ll also fry up and egg to go with it. Eggs always make meals taste amazing!
I don’t eat much red meat because I personally don’t really enjoy it. But I’m not
I haven’t been snacking too much recently as I’ve been eating enough at my main meals so that I don’t get hungry.
If I haven’t had eggs as part of my lunch or dinner, I’ll have some as a snack. Otherwise I usually have some cashews or almonds.
I must admit that when I’m travelling a lot, it’s hard to stick to this. But I travel with a hand held blender and do actually have smoothies every morning. And I also do have chicken and broccoli every single day, whether I’m travelling or not!
