Recently I have been a little more conscious about what I have been putting into my body. I don’t want to imply that I am dieting but trying to put a handle on having some healthy living habits.
Recently I was introduced to eating 6 small meals vs 3 meals a day. I must tell you that I did it this past week. I have days where I work 11 am till 7 pm therefore my eating is little off, it seems on those days I was only eating about 2 meals one in mid morning and lunch/dinner at 3pm. Those days I came home starving and ate everything or anything I could find.
The six meals a day consist of smaller meals, with two protein snacks between your meals I tried it this week and by the time I got to Friday, I was bouncing off the wall with joy, energy that I have ‘t experience for sometime and I was laughing more that I usually do.
I went on the internet to look for some healthy meal replacement and this is what I found: http://greatist.com/health/high-protein-snacks-portable
Then I found this neat recipe for Tuna and this is how I made it this week, it is so good.
I used albacore tuna in veg oil. Normally I would have gone with the water. But anyhow our kitty got a treat from the drained juice off the tuna. So it didn’t go to waste. So this is what I did for dinner and another day I did this for lunch time.
I took two heaping Tablespoons of garlic hummus (Aldi’s brand), put that in the bottom of bowl, added 1/4 of can of tuna and stirred it into the hummus. Then I added to this 2 baby carrots sliced, 1/3 + cup of chopped celery, and some cut up red pepper (instead of green pepper). I used a red one as it is suppose to be better for digestion. Then I had purchase some sweet sugar snaps and thawed them out and added handful and left them on top. I did not stir them in. This was so filling I had a hard time eating my snack.
So my meals are every three hours.
Another thing, I was lacking in water, I had gotten out of the habit of drinking about 6 cups a day. I decided I would sip on this every hour on the hour. I have clock in front of me where I sit at work so I actually got up to 4 cups per day this week.
So my observation from t his week is that when I kept to the 6 meals a day, my metabolism felt better, I did not have the cravings that one gets from 3 meal a day. It was a fantastic feeling!
I am going to start eating like this and it will be an adventure to find new things to add to my meals as I do this. I just want to share in case this would help someone else. I haven’t written for awhile, but think of things to write but haven’t had the time to sit down and write.
