…but it is that magic time of year! It’s that time when all parents rejoice, all kids moan, and all teachers bid adieu to free time for a good month. With that and of course running a small business, add in a nasty case of the plague that was blessedly short but I’m pretty sure killed me (I got better) and I’ve been too busy to blog.
That doesn’t mean I haven’t been being-haved (pronounced “have-ed” with the long a). As in, “You behave”
In response, “I am being-haved.”
See! Being haved! I’m still leaning into my clean eating lifestyle!
I have a few recipes to post. One thing I am LOVING is overnight steel cut oats. The other thing is layered salads. I also have been using canning jars for a lot of things, including the overnight steel cut oats, the miniature crisps (short pint jars, turned out PERFECTLY), and the layered salads for lunch.
Tonight I made a healthy zucchini chocolate chip breakfast muffin for the volunteers of a race I help to direct. Figured I needed to use up the zucchini. I needed NOT to have copious amounts of baked goods lying around, and I needed to show my appreciation. They turned out awesome so I hope they like them!
So since I’m trying to eat clean, but haven’t had time to come up with something to replace my afternoon granola bars, I’ve not been packing them for lunch every day. So throughout my day (I tend to eat every few hours so I bring a lot of food) I’m eating fruit, a salad for lunch with some lean protein or some soup, carrots or other raw vegetable snack, and water and an apple on the way home. I thought I’d be starving for my run in the afternoon, but I’m not at all. I feel really good about it and if I am hungry, I have a slice or two of homemade bread when I get home.
I think the main time I tend to stumble is when it comes to being so tired and headachy that it’s hard to choose food. Unfortunately with the change of weather I’ve had worse headaches lately. Very tiring. It isn’t that I throw all caution to the wind, but it means I need to take advantage of the good times and have food ready for the rough times.
