In my opinion, Sundays are the best days for meals. The whole lazy Sunday, hanging out with family and sharing a meal together makes my heart happy. Today was a great day.
Here’s what I ate today, Sunday April 24, 2016:
I tried something different at breakfast today. I haven’t had cereal in so long, probably because I am now aware of the amount of added sugar that is found in it. All-Bran cereal only has 3 grams of sugar per serving, which is a 1/4 cup. That’s still a fair amount of sugar for the serving size, but I let it slide this morning, and I used unsweetened almond milk on it. I also had a banana with it, and about 45 cups of coffee. Not actually, haha, but I love having multiple cups each morning. I have it black with one stevia.
Lunch was so good today. I had meatless chicken with spicy mustard (oh my gosh, so good) and red cargo rice with a dash of pink Himalayan sea salt.
My snack today was so juicy, ripe and SO delicious. I am OBSESSED with Ataulfo mangoes. They are the small, yellow mangoes, usually from Mexico. When they’re ripe, they are so so sweet and juicy, and they’re fun to eat too.
Dinners on Sundays are always special to me. They are a chance to share a meal with your loved ones before the new week begins. I like to begin the meal preparation with a delicious, crisp beverage, and tonight’s choice was Sleeman Clear 2.0. It’s a lighter beer with only 80 calories per bottle, which is great when compared to other beers that ring in at about 140 calories.
For the meal we had grilled corn on the cob, grilled asparagus and cremini mushrooms.
Some of my favorite meals of the whole week were today. I love grilling veggies on Sundays in the spring and summer when the days are starting to get longer and the weather warmer. The feeling is indescribable.
After dinner we watched a fantastic documentary called “That Sugar Film.” It explores the significant amount of added sugar we are eating on a daily basis without knowing it and how it is affecting our bodies. It is literally poisoning us. And what’s worse is that the largest companies in the world, think Pepsico, etc., are brainwashing us with false information in order to make profit. It was so eye opening and made me rethink the way that I eat. Everyone NEEDS to watch this.
I hope everyone got to spend some time today with their loved ones, and got to be outside enjoying the beautiful end to the weekend! Summer is on its way!
See you tomorrow with the last day of “What I Eat in a Day”!
