You should never feel guilty about your food choices... Ever!! Many people (myself included) struggle with feelings of guilt after eating something they labeled as 'bad' they feel like that have been bad
Food is not something be moralised, categorised or feared
Food does not have to be earned or compensated for
Food is neither inherently good or bad. Shame around food is so incredibly rampant, when a person (myself) identifies as a 'good eater' has something 'bad' they create a bunch of negativity, stress and disappointment in themselves - that is the unhealthy part not the pudding they enjoyed earlier 'I was so bad for eating...' no I wasn't, eating that brownie or muffin didn't make me a bad person. Even if I ate nothing but cookies for a week doesn't make me a bad person, the line of what food does to or for our bodies with what is righteous has become blurred
Eating is not something to be ashamed about, your worth doesn’t depend on food or diet rules. Food is there to nourish your body and feed your soul. Food is a resource not a judgement
I have talked about my diet before, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it, so I’m posting again lol
Right now I’m doing something called flexible dieting with @macrostax .This method is key to sustaining a great figure while finding a balance between “good foods” and “junk foods”. In times past I followed a very strict bodybuilding style diet. This means I ate mostly lean proteins, green veggies, and fats like coconut oil, nuts, and PB 😋. I only ate foods that would be considered less healthy when I was given cheat meals by my coach (these are meant to boost your metabolism) or after shows.
I had great results from this diet! But I found it hard to sustain all year around. Often if you tell yourself you “can’t have” certain foods, you’ll fight it in your mind, because we innately we like to fight rules.
So now, using the flexible dieting approach on @macrostax I don’t feel the need to deprive myself of certain foods. It’s common to think that eating unhealthy foods makes you gain weight, when in reality just eating too much of those foods is bad. Oh and by the way! Eating too much “healthy food” also makes you gain weight. So if you want to find a healthy balance between the “fun” foods and the “healthy foods” check out @macrostax and use my code BUFFBLONDIE . It takes the guesswork out of everything and can help you live that life of balance 🍃 pc: @redstallyn
There's always a reason to feel extra happy on Fridays. .
I don't know about you but I always think brunch 💛 This is from the latest restaurant project at Pelican Grill in Seabrook, TX. Who doesn't like some good pancakes?
"Shall I compare thee to a perfectly poured pool of pancake batter on a warm griddle?" — Williyum Cakespeare 😂
There is something wonderful about pancakes, they are fluffy, sweet, almost savoury in some ways and the combinations with flavours and ingredients go on and on!
I can’t help myself but to try a different type of pancake every time, this one was pancakes taken from @buzzfeedtasty ‘Fluffiest Vegan pancakes’ and I made my own Vegan chocolate sauce.
Creamy, Rich, Sweet and seriously delicious 😳
• 1/2 cup of warm water 💦
• 2 tbsp Maple Syrup 🍁
• 1/2 cup of cacao powder
• 2 tbsp cacoa butter or dark chocolate 🍫
• 1 tsp Vanilla extract
• 1 pinch of sea salt 🌊 🧂 (or I like to use pink Himalayan salt) 💓
This sauce is definitely worth a try! If I’m ever going to have chocolate sauce on my porridge or pancakes, this is the one I’d use every time 🌚
I don’t know how much of you already knew but apparently fresh fruits bought in a shop are picked at a stage when they aren’t completely ripe, just so that the fruits don’t bruise easily and can survive transport, also the nutritional value of these fruits can be significantly lower than that of shop bought ‘Frozen fruits’ which are picked when ripe and frozen to lock in all the vitamins and nutrients.
Also just to add that frozen fruits, most of them are packaged In plastic similarly to that of fresh produce, but the weight of plastic is far lower meaning better for the environment.
Obviously it’s still plastic but I found that some frozen fruits are packaged in recyclable materials which many companies are following in those footsteps which is hopeful!
Panqueques con avena y plátano: 😍😍😍 En una procesadora poner 1 taza de avena tradicional, 1 plátano (mientras más maduro mejor), endulzante al gusto, una cucharadita de canela molida, y una de esencia de Vainilla. Mezclar por un minuto o dos hasta que todo quede bien integrado. Luego, agregar 2 huevos y volver a mezclar por unos segundos hasta que se vuelva una masa homogénea. Calentar un sartén grande, colocar el aceite de coco y esperar a que se derrita. Poner un cucharón mediano de mezcla por panqueque y cocinar hasta que empiecen a aparecer burbujas por el lado de arriba; dar vuelta y cocinar por el otro lado hasta que estén dorados. Sacar del sartén y mantener tapados hasta terminar con toda la mezcla, también se pueden recalentar en el horno. Servir acompañados de berries y maple syrup o la miel que deseen. #recetas#food#comida#cocina#comidasana#saludable#healthyfood#breakfast#pancakes#instafood#like#desayuno
Johnnycakes! I just posted a recipe for them. It’s like a dense cornmeal pancake fried in butter. You can eat them like pancakes with syrup or dunk them into soup or chili. Just a super simple recipe for stuff you probably have sitting in your pantry. Bonus points for growing and grinding your own corn meal! I didn’t, but maybe this fall I will have corn enough to try that 😁link in bio!
