It’s the final day of my food blog! And I’ve got some yummy ones for you! I hope this particular post can show you just how easy it is to eat out, celebrate, and still make healthy food choices.
Over easy egg with avocado, cheddar cheese, salsa, and cilantro on toast with orange slices. The bread is from Aldi and is only 35 calories per slice! I LOVE getting eggs fresh from my parents’ house. They taste so much better than store-bought.
Today, I had the pleasure of eating out with an old friend of mine I haven’t seen in years! We ate at the Blue Duck BBQ Tavern in Peoria. I had two Asian brisket tacos with a side of vinegar slaw and a nitro milk stout. Soooo delicious! The tacos and side were a healthier option, but I was still able to indulge a little. Pardon the half-eaten taco; I started eating before remembering to take a picture! Picture is linked to the restaurant’s website.
We celebrated my mom’s birthday today with a yummy shredded chicken dish my aunt made with a side of jasmine rice and fruit.
I made dessert, which was this Betty Crocker heart healthy coffee cake recipe. I made two versions. For one, I followed the recipe exactly (except I used real eggs instead of the egg product). For the other, I substituted all sugar for equal parts stevia. The picture is linked to the recipe.
Honestly, I munched on potato chips and nuts today. One of the great things about eating well and exercising regularly is having the ability to indulge occasionally with zero guilt.
I don’t view eating well as limiting myself. Instead, it is a way to fuel my body to perform at its greatest capacity. Thanks so much for reading! I’ve enjoyed sharing my food journey with you and look forward to posting my workouts in the near future as well.
