If that saying is true, then I am a chocolate glazed donut. I am a Zaxby’s chicken finger plate with a large coke Zero. I am a pack of chewy sweet tarts. Thank goodness we are not what we eat.
One of my many flaws is that I don’t have the best eating habits. As a runner I should probably be eating steamed vegetables and a grilled chicken breast everyday but instead, I enjoy cheeseburgers and french fries with lots of ketchup.
I’m not a glutton. I don’t eat these foods everyday but it’s what I prefer. I find it hard to resist the cravings. Snacking is where I keep it healthy. A protein bar or an apple will satisfy me during those in between meal times. It’s lunch and dinner time that I fail to eat healthy all the time, because typical health food just doesn’t seem to fill me.
When I think of health food, I envision rice cakes and broth. I think of celery sticks, kashi bars and skim milk and none of these foods appeal to me. I’d often rather go without.
So if you are reading this, I could use your advice. What healthy things do you eat? What tastes good but has low calories? What fuels you?
