I’m a Foodie. Yes, I admit that I think about food way too much but I must say that it’s in a healthy way. I think about food as a way to nourish my body but in the process it must also nourish my soul. I think I have a good relationship with food… I don’t eat too much of it and I don’t under eat. I think the key to a balanced healthy life is to find exactly how much your body needs to be nourished.
I love to look at recipes, try new ingredients, have time to cook and make a mess in the kitchen, then take pretty photos of the yummy foods I’m about to eat.
Having said that, preparing for a physique competition where the diet gets a little extreme towards the end, doesn’t go hand in hand with being a Foodie. I MISS that! Right now I’m avoiding looking at blogs, magazines & cooking shows with delicious recipes that I can’t make. There are competitors out there that love to look at food while they’re dieting in order to satisfy their needs. I CAN’T do that! It just triggers my hunger levels even more.
However, I do have a recipe that I can make it look pretty and it’s contest prep friendly as well as it’s good for everybody else just trying to be healthy. This is my new breakfast addiction that I’ve been eating for the past week. I was getting tired of eating my egg whites by themselves so I had to try something new. This recipe came from a Gal (From Gym to Podium The Positive Approach to Competing in Body Figure) that we share the same nutrition Coach so I guarantee you that these are contest prep friendly! I plan on continue eating these even after my show.
