The word "rut" has such a negative connotation, doesn't it? Maybe I should use a different term. Basically: I've been eating the same thing for breakfast for the last five or so days. I feel like I've found a good groove -- because when I first started keeping my meal diary, I was being far too skimpy on this important meal.
Here she is!
- Egg friend in coconut oil sprinkled with black pepper + paprika
- Two slices of Ezekiel toast (7 sprouted grains)
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 1/2 sliced avocado
You guys had some great suggestions to not get too hung up in the numbers counting when I track what I eat. Instead, paying attention to my macros is going to probably be the best thing for me to do. This meal looks pretty balanced to me. And coming in at 426 calories versus the 250 (a trap I fell into while looking too much at the calorie #), is much more sustaining.
So, I'll happily fall into this breakfast rut if it means I get the right mix of what will keep my satiated and energized with drippy goodness . . .
Do you have go-to meals like these? Any suggestions?
