Eating Real Food
Today is day 5 of trying to eat real food. It’s also National Fast Food day in the United States. In the past, many of my snacks during the day have been protein bars – food items that while they appear nutritious from a protein/carbs/fat perspective, were potentially unhealthy due to the amount of processing they have undergone. I also eat out a LOT, and restaurants often use unhealthy things to prepare otherwise healthy menu items.
No, I’m not eating like a bird. I’m just trying to make better choices. Last Thursday and Friday I stopped at Publix on my way to work and picked up fruits (apples & bananas), vegetables (Birdseye Steamfresh veggie bowls), and Amy’s Frozen Bowls. It’s too early to tell what kind of impact these decisions will have on my training and general wellness, but I figure it can’t hurt.
