Hey guys! So I used to write about food/macros/what I eat in a day all the time but as most of you know my content has really shifted over the years and so it’s not something I talk about much. I always want to be a good resource for you so if a lot of you are interested in something I will for sure cover it (like in today’s post), but just a few “disclaimers” before getting into examples.
For over a year now, I have not counted anything. I don’t count macros or calories, and I honestly just do my best to eat an overall balanced diet. I would describe my diet as healthy-ish. But then again what I think of as “healthy” you may not and vice versa. I really don’t put a lot of thought into what I eat though meaning that I pretty much eat what I’m in the mood for. For years I only ate “healthy” foods with 1 “cheat meal” per week, and for years I counted macros. That just isn’t my “style” anymore. I felt like at the end of the day, it was taking away from my life vs. adding to it.
In that case, I hope this roundup below gives you some meal ideas and also shows you that I am not perfect. I eat everything from avocado toast and salads to bagels, pizza, and wine on a regular basis. That being said, I thought the best way would be to show you 3 different days of eating to try and give you a good “comprehensive” picture. Okay so without further ado!
