Well, the weather is not cooperating to take pictures so I’m going to have to wait and finish my 28 Days of Spring Fashion.
Today I thought I would do some Q & A on clean eating and trying to stay healthy at 40 and beyond.
1. Are you still clean eating and what do you eat on a daily basis?
I get this question a lot and the answer is yes I’m still clean eating. Everything I eat is not organic. I would say it’s 65 to 70% clean and the rest is not. I would love to be 100% but I’m not there yet.
I have come a long way from how I use to eat. My daughter asked me last week if I had bought my favorite chocolate Easter candy. I LOVE these Hershey candy coated milk chocolate eggs. Oh. my. goodness!
To satisfy my sweet tooth, I make these energy bites all the time. My daughter and I both love them.
2. What do you eat on a daily basis?
I typically eat Kashi cereal for breakfast (right now I’m drinking Shakeology), I eat a salad for lunch or sometimes I will grab a couple of tablespoons of organic peanut butter and that’s it. It depends on my day. I need to expand my lunch options.
For dinner, it’s usually a meat and a vegetable. Part of that is because my husband has been dieting. He’s lost over 30 pounds and looks great!
We eat sautéed brussel sprouts, baked cauliflower, baked veggies. I cut up peppers, onions, zucchini, and tomatoes, toss in salt pepper and olive oil and bake in the oven. It’s easy and healthy.
We rarely eat bread, unless we’re eating a hamburger but that’s not very often.
I recently purchased the NutriBullet Blender by Magic Bullet and I love it!! I don’t know how I lived without it. 🙂
3. What basic pieces should I have in my wardrobe?
I have talked about this quite a bit. (I did a wardrobe challenge here and you can still purchase it.)
You need a good core wardrobe and then each season add a few trendy pieces. I love this ShopBop workwear edition. These pieces are timeless and can be worn through several seasons.
I’m so honored that you have taken time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’d love for you to subscribe to my blog through email. You can also follow me on social media. I’m on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!
Beauty For the Heart~~My husband and I had a discussion about clothes last night. We were talking about how we should dress and although we want to look nice, Christ is more concerned about how we love.
These verses in Colossians are a perfect example:
You are God’s chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don’t be proud. Be gentle and patient. Put up with one another. Forgive one another if you are holding something against someone. Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you. And over all these good things put on love. Love holds them all together perfectly as if they were one. Colossians 3:12-14
Let’s clothe ourselves in mercy, kindness and love today!
Have a blessed day!
