Healthy eats and no dessert (well, sometimes).

It’s no secret that I love ice cream, cookies, brownies, etc., and I pretty much eat it everyday. While I workout a ton and eat pretty healthy otherwise, this is not a good habit to maintain. Therefore, I’m trying to cut back on dessert and eat healthy foods instead. I made it 3 days last week and then the weekend happened. Oops.

Thanks for the motivation Janae. You are doing great and it motivates me to attempt this very hard task. Kate, we can do this!

So, it seems that I eat healthier overall when I cut out dessert…who knew!

What’s for breakfast?

Overnight oats made with almond milk and cinnamon. Top with berries and enjoy. πŸ™‚

Note: I get to work at the butt crack of dawn and always start the morning with coffee.

What’s for lunch? Well, usually leftovers from dinner so let’s skip over lunch!

What’s for dinner? (fun fact: we also refer to dinner as “evening lunches”…don’t ask me why because I have no idea).

Veggie burgers topped with guacamole/avocado and tomatoes with veggies on the side.

What’s for “dessert”?

Fruit, nuts, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc. Tonight I tried the grapes and cottage cheese combo and I was pleasantly surprised.

Let’s see how long I keep this no dessert thing going. One day down!

How often do you eat dessert?

What’s your favorite healthy go-to meal?

Do you prefer a hot or cold lunch?

  1. I’m currently on day four of no dessert, and it’s becoming a struggle. I want ice cream and/or chocolate so bad! I’ve decided that I’m going to eat dessert on ‘S’ days, which are Saturdays, Sundays, and ‘Special’ days. Thursday is our anniversary, so I will consider that a ‘Special’ day and will have dessert πŸ™‚ I like your healthy food ideas, and will probably steal some of them!
