Sometimes I struggle with my food… I have days when I’m too tired to make myself something healthy or what I’m really craving. Sometimes I even lean toward emotional eating. (Beware when I start to crave Doritos and Ice Cream.)

But…I also know that when I really tap into my truth, I WANT to feed my body healthy foods. My philosophy to stay in sync with my truth as much as possible, is that eating healthy has to be easy ( not fancy) and quick.June30 046 Today, I have to eat super healthy because I need my energy to last long tonight as I am teaching a “Journaling with the Chakras” class at my office. Anytime I teach at night, or know that I have a long day ahead of me, I really need to eat on track. Here’s what I ate so far today…A smoothie with blueberries and almond butter. Brown rice and lentils with a little tahini, and now, I just made myself a nice Mediterranean lunch. It was fast and delicious…here’s what I did: I toasted 2 Corn Tortillas and drizzled with olive oil and salt. I did not make them too crispy. I made my usual chickpea bean dip which is a staple in my diet. (So easy, put beans, olive oil, tahini, salt, water in a mini cuisinart). My son likes hummus too, so I took a scoop for myself and then spread his on 4 quinoa crackers. Then I quickly sauteed garlic, a red pepper, some cucumber and a jar of rinsed artichoke halves to go next to my hummus. The trick here is that anything you have on hand will do…I used cucumbers here…not a typical food you would normally sautee. (Be creative!). I knew that this quick tasty salad would not put me in danger of an SVT. Some ideas for foods to keep in the cabinet:

  • can chickpeas
  • olive oil
  • jar of artichokes
  • garlic
  • brown rice
  • lentils
  • some fresh veggies

You can whip up so many things with just a few basics that you always keep in the closet. My goal is to help you make your life easy so that you don’t grab a slice of pizza or donut. Remember to breathe before and after lunch…and if your up for it, even a little mini affirmation before you take the first bite that says…”May this food feed my health and balance my body”. Enjoy! What are you having for lunch?
