About Eat Like Me

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Eat Like Me blog! I'm Emma- a Nutrition major & kind of a health nut! I'm really into eating healthy & nourishing my body. It amazes me how much food can really affect your life and change the way you feel. I've been into healthy eating since I was a teen and I wanted to share my interest with all of you! I'll admit that I have days when I do not make the best food choices but my goal is to just get back on track and stay healthy as often as I can. Of course, eating healthy doesn't mean I don't get to enjoy my food. There are lots of flavorful, healthy foods & recipes, and even desserts! On this blog I will share with you what I eat, along with recipes & pictures. You could use my blog as a guide to healthy eating, or just for recipes and ideas!

Luna Cookies & Cream Delight (breakfast 10.25.10)

And another long work week begins... Mondays are the worst! Breakfast this morning was a quick bowl of cereal along with an apple and a LARGE cup of coffee to wake me up. The cereal was a mixture of Kashi Go Lean & Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax with Almond Milk. I couldn't find Unsweetened Almond Milk last time I was at the store, so I had to resort to Original. I prefer the unsweetened because the Original contains evaporated cane juice (sugar), which makes it really sweet. I prefer my Almond Milk to taste like regular milk, and I find the unsweetened is the most similar. I also think it's unnecessary to add sugar to an already sweet bowl of cereal. I guess I'll just have to do deal with it for now, and next time I'll get the unsweetened version again. Around 9 I had my mid-morning snack which was a Luna Cookies & Cream Delight Bar, and around 11 I had some
Trader Joe's Whole Grain Pretzel Sticks that I had packed from home to hold me over until my late lunch. I forgot to take a picture of the pretzels before I ate them, so unfortunately I could not add a picture of them. I ate about 1.5 oz which would be 1.5 servings. It's the same amount that I had here. I really need to start packing a lunch again because eating at 2 everyday is just not working out all that well. Today for lunch I heated up an Amy's Spinach Feta Pocket Sandwich and paired it up with the last of my organic strawberries.
The pocket was very convenient being that it was already a late lunch, and it was a nice, easy way to have a balanced meal. It's also another great way to get some spinach into my diet being that I don't like to it eat it plain. I'm not really much of a spinach eater, so blended it into a tasty pocket is a perfect way for me to enjoy its many health benefits without the bitter taste. Later in the afternoon I had a Golden Corn Vitatop for a snack. I noticed I went a bit heavy on the carbs today, so I'll make up for it by not having as many tomorrow.
