Healthy Eats

In the last few years I have been conscious of what I eat and what I put in my body.  This year, along with my goal to lose the baby weight and be in my best shape, I also want to be as healthy as possible.  I finally started getting back to having an annual physical to stay on top of things and found out that my cholesterol is a little high.  This was a blessing and a curse because what 29 (ahem) year old has elevated cholesterol and it also has made me change my eating habits.  I LOVE cheese.  Hands down the best thing ever, but I have cut back on all dairy majorly.  No more cream or milk or cheddar except for every now and then.  I am still using a little bit of feta and parm but that is the extent of my dairy on a daily basis.  I also am trying to avoid sugar, processed foods, and bad carbohydrates.  So in the last few weeks my eating habits have definitely changed.  Here are some of my new favorite meals and snacks...

{ Mashed Cauliflower }
We have been replacing mashed potatoes with this and it is deeelish!

{ Ezekial bread & avocado }
I toast this sprout bread and mash an avocado on it then finish with a sprinkle of sea salt.  Awesome snack!

{ Multi grain oats }
I make this with water then add in a splash of soy vanilla creamer, a packet of Truvia, cinnamon and whatever fresh fruit we have. Awesome and filling breakfast. 

{ Green smoothie }

{ Peanut butter protein shake }

{ Corn and white bean salad }

I'm going to post some of the recipes for these soon!  Fruits and veggies and now the basis of my diet along with healthy proteins.  I am feeling fuller and enjoying all my meals!
