What I Ate in a (non-diet) Day

Welcome to another installment of my food diary.  This time, I am sharing an example of how I eat on a day in which all food groups are fair game.  If your personal diet doesn’t exclude any particular food group, but just focuses on including a lot of fruits and vegetables, then I say good on ya!  (barring any allergies or intolerance of course)  I hope you enjoy a few new recipes that include dairy and grains but are still health-conscious.

Breakfast:  Morning Glory Oats

I’ve shared this one before, but it deserves a repeat and has been on frequent rotation at my house!  I fancied it up this time with some coconut chips.  Do not skip the orange zest; it is everything.

Lunch:  Turkey roll-ups, pesto pasta salad, broccoli salad, and Galia melon.

Dessert:  Chai Poached Pears with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

This is truly what I ate yesterday; I incorporated 10 different fruits and veggies throughout my meals.  Sometimes it’s more important to focus on adding good things than subtracting demonized food groups.  Don’t stress, reach for something green (or orange or red) and enjoy your meals!
