My eyebrows are like two fury Caterpillars on my forehead, my roots are awful, and to add to my self esteem - my skin is breaking out like CRAZY. One would think that this "Au naturel" lifestyle that quarantine has forced us into, would lead to a healthy glow-but no-not for me. Instead I'm pretty sure the stress has added a permeant wrinkle to my forehead (or two).
The past few days haven't been the most constructive. Sunday I underrate and Monday I overate (1.5 pints of fro-yo and all). I tried to tell myself that It was my body compensating for the carbs/calories I lacked on Sunday-but needless to say this "binge" (spoon in pint) didn't make me feel good.
On a happy note, my Zenbasil seeds from Amazon FINALLY arrived. Was I hesitant to spend $20 on flipping seeds? yes. BUT they've been lingering in my cart for the past few weeks and I finally decided to give them a shot. Especially because every F-factor/Zenbasil seed smoothie I see on Instagram looks like a cookies and cream milk shake. How could I not? Verdict: It doesn't taste like Oreo's blended up in a blender: but it certainly makes the smoothie thicker without altering the taste.
With all of that said, back to normal programing of what I eat in day:
Fage 0% Greek Yogurt
3/4 cup Fiber One Cereal
3/4th cup Blueberries
1 cup of almond milk with walden farms sugar free strawberry syrup
Thoughts: I know what you're thinking. "What is this girl 5 with her strawberry milk" TRUST ME-I really don't know why I'm craving it either-but I am and that's that. Plus it's 30 calories with unsweetened almond milk. I enjoy it. You do you. It's important to listen to your body.
Tumero's wrap (5 net carb) with Avocado, Fat free American, Lettuce, Tomato and Turkey
Side salad with romaine, carrots, tomato and 1 tbsp FF Italian dressing
Mix of Roasted veggies (zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower)
Thoughts: I've been really bad with boredom eating recently. Even though I'm not bored and i'm constantly swamped with work/teaching Aspen-it's more like distraction eating! I was finally craving something different from my regular go-to salad-so went with a wrap and a side salad with roasted veggies. It was very filling.
F-Factor 20/20 smoothie with 1 tbsp Zenbasil seeds
Thoughts: I can't believe I'm so late adding Zenbasil seeds to my afternoon smoothie. Yes they do add 60 calories but WOW the consistency.... Highly recommend (and see what I mean about looking like a cookies and cream milkshake!?)
Dinner + Dessert 530pm
Tuna salad with cauliflower rice/seaweed on the side
SF Jello with FF whipped cream
Thoughts: This salad was refreshing. I used plain balsamic vinegar and dipped the cucumbers in low sodium soy which added a nice twist. Something I will definitely have again!
