A Day In My Cup, On My Plate, And In My Bowl

I love to eat. I love to talk about food. And to be honest I am a total food snob. I am very picky about what I eat and more importantly the quality of what I eat. I’m a firm believer that our “diets” affect our health waaayyyy more than we think. So, what goes in my body is very important to me. 

By now you probably know that I have several food sensitivities and allergies. I’ve written about it before, here:  http://www.pureformetraining.com/blog/2017/2/3/food-sensitivities-dont-suck

To keep my body happy and running efficiently, I don’t eat wheat, gluten, dairy, coconut, and eggs. And to top if off, I’m allergic to almonds and peanuts. Usually when I tell people this the first question they ask me is, “What the hell do you eat?”

Scroll down for a day in my cup, on my plate, and in my bowl:

There you go. A sneaky peek into what I ate in a day. Clearly not starving or feeling deprived! See below for the recipe for the lentil soup I ate for lunch. So easy, inexpensive, and delicious. Just go with it...I don't measure stuff out.

 Pour olive oil in pan. Add 1 chopped onion until softened. Add in 1 pound of bulk Italian pork sausage+salt/pepper. Cook until browned and crumbled. Add in chopped celery (3-4 stalks), carrots (3-4), and mushrooms (big handful). Sauté for several minutes until softened.

 Pour in a box and a half of chicken broth (more or less depending on how thick you want it), frozen spinach (however much you want), 1 cup of dried lentils, and 1 bay leaf. Boil/simmer for 20 minutes.
