Let’s talk about food. How’ve you been managing your diet during this quarantine? I know that it’s super hard to say the least. It’s so much easier to eat up all the junk food and processed food that you have in your place during this time. Personally, at the start of the quarantine, I went a bit overboard. Chips. Donut sticks. White cheddar popcorn. I had it all! The only thing that worked to my benefit may have been the fact that I drank a bunch of water. Last year this time, I decided to do away with drinking my sugars daily and made the switch to drinking water as my main source of hydration.
With that said, I’ve basically eaten up all my processed food and on my last grocery store run, I didn’t replenish it all. I still have my lunch meats, and a few hot pockets, but I'm definitely trying to be more intentional about what I put in my body.
This morning, I was still tired when I woke up and was ready for something to eat. I sat for a while and started to settle on eating the last of my Froot Loops, then something changed. I knew that I didn’t really want all that added sugar. So, I found some energy and made a rockstar breakfast.
What’s on my plate?
This meal kept me full for 3 hours! Usually, when I'm in the hustle and bustle of the grind at the office, I don't make my breakfast before heading into work. Instead, I grab food at a local restaurant with my typical order of a grilled cheese on wheat with turkey bacon inside. Even with my discount, it's like $5 just for the sandwich.
Preparing my own food is not only better for me, but it sure is cheaper too. I get more food for half the price, and end up being more satiated. I'm interested to see the positive results that will come from my consistency, and hope that when this quarantine is all over that I will maintain these healthy habits.
What's your go to breakfast during quarantine?
