Craving Healthy Foods

>> Thursday, September 3, 2009

I had another great sweat fest at the gym this morning. More running/ walking intervals for a half hour. But man - my legs were tight, particularly my calves. I'm thinking it may have been all of my jumping jacks yesterday. Lots of stretching off and on this afternoon for me!

Lunch was super tasty. I tried an Amy's non-dairy burrito, and I really liked it! I'm constantly impressed with the nutritional stats and ingredients in Amy's products.

I had my burrito with some salsa and a slice of avocado (chopped) and a peach.

What you don't see is when I got part way through my peach and decided, "why not give in to my craving for some almond butter with my peach?" It's not bad for me, and I certainly was planning on only using a dab, so why not? I couldn't think of a reason, so I brought out my last jar (*tear*) of TJ's raw almond butter. I've often found that if my body is craving something healthy (in this case, I have a suspicion it was the healthy fats in almond butter), then maybe it's trying to tell me something and I should listen. We should all trust our bodies far more than we do. :) What are your thoughts on craving healthy foods?

I think I'm going to pop in a cheesy, girly movie while I finish updating my resumes and a couple new cover letters to send out. Ciao!

Definitely eat what you crave, especially with your new dietary changes! Most things that are vegan are healthy too so it is a win/win! It is the best way to keep from feeling restricted, I think.

I pretty much give in when my body wants any food, haha. But when it's a healthy craving I definitely listen.

I love Amy's products too!

Thanks for the comment!
I indulge in those healthy cravings, I trust my body when it says I need something.

I'm definitely a fan of listening to my body and eating what it craves. Luckily I love a lot of healthy foods like fruits n veggies so it works out!
Oh yay...I love cheesy girl movies!

I couldn't agree with you more. I really beleive that real cravings are our bodys telling us to fill it with something that we are lacking.
Our bodies know us best! :)

Way to listen to yours and keep your tummy happy. AB and peaches would make me quite content too!
