Sweet Tooth Therapy: Update #1

One of my “solutions” for my Sweet Tooth Therapy was to share more of what I am eating each day on the blog. Therefore, I am here today with a little update.

So, what I have been doing?

Experimenting with oatmeal. (More on this later)

Bumping up my protein intake with nuts, nut butters, lean meats, and oatmeal/cereals.

Creating meals with at least three food groups. The picture above has carbs (brown rice tortilla), protein (cheese, eggs), dairy (cheese), and vegetables.

Making desserts “healthier” and more filling. For example, my Fudgy Almond Joy Protein Cake and Chocolate Ice Cubes.

It hasn’t been super easy but I am taking each day at a time. Plus, I managed to go to the gym today which hasn’t happened in a while so it’s only onward and upward from here! :)

As many of you have heard, this week is Nation Eating Disorder Awareness (NEDA) week. It’s crazy to think of the epidemic it has become.

Lauren and Janae have had some great posts this week about it.

[I really recommend Janae's post if you are a runner/exerciser. I have often wondered how some people with eating disorder can still have such endurance. If only they knew what they are doing to the one and only body we are given.]

Pray, encourage, and support those you know going through an eating disorder. Also, if you have eating disordered behaviors seek wise counsel right away. An eating disorder is no joke and something that should not be taken lightly.  Hope and healing are possible and available for everyone. It’s all about taking the first step.

Happy 1st Day of March!
