But it’s really hard because the clouds kidding I mean the Sun gets in and out of the clouds and it keeps getting really dark and it keeps getting really bright and this is really a struggle. You know the Monday morning, Jay King, but yeah, welcome to new weather eat. In a day it’s been a while. I haven’t done one of those today I want to thank life Sam for partnering with me on this article, which is a nutrition tracking app.
If you haven’t seen the latest article that I’ve posted on my blog, I talked about kind of my health problems that I went through during 2019 and I basically told you about my weight gain. I told you about the fact that I lost my natural appetite cues and I stopped intuitive eating for that matter. Anyways like I, really encourage you to check out that article. If you want to know more of why I started tracking what I eat, so I’m so excited for this partnership, because I started using Lifeson before this collaboration.
So it’s just really nice because I get to talk to you about an app that I really really am using and I find really cool. I also told you about this in my latest article, but I am doing a cure of vitamin, and so each morning I’m inside ok with one two three pills: this is a brand that I’ve been using. It’s definitely not sponsored, but it’s just work. This is a probiotic. This is for my liver problems, and this is for my skin.
I just have that with water. That’s the first thing I have in the morning. Is it really a surprise? If I tell you that I have oatmeal in the morning, I think not I have bananas need to be eaten. I think so. I’m going to have one in there mashed, so using a banana is really good because it helps to sweeten the oatmeal without adding sugar blueberries, approximately 70 grams bout, half a cup, a cup blueberries.
This gets really beautiful, nice, nice, nice, adding frozen blueberries, really helps to cool down the preparation, so that is like really good temperature for the tummy to eat. It’s not good to eat frozen food and it’s not good to eat hot food. So this is kind of the perfect temperature, so yogurt tablespoon 10 grams mix. That again together. Look at that. This is where things have been changing from me.
Add just a couple of getting the calash pepitas. This is really really interesting. This is pumpkin seeds, flour and it’s really rich in protein, so I just add, like a tablespoon of it, just adding that tahini teaspoon not too much. If you know I’m ready to have my breakfast now, let’s just see what like some says about this breakfast, I’m going to add breakfast now. I could do one by one everything, but because it’s a meal that I know works really well and is really balanced.
I have saved it to my favorite and this is a premium feature, but basically I just go to meals and it’s called the perfect oatmeal. This is not the calories, it has. The perfect oatmeal one serving has everything that I’ve just put to my oatmeal track, and if I come back, okay done there, it is 430 calories, I’m actually going to add some chia seeds. That’s not in my recipe. I have added seven today: five, not even four grams: that’s it total breakfast, perfect, healthy, liver protein, healthy liver clubs, healthy little fat, rich in fiber calories and track everything’s.
In tracked, honestly, I was very surprised when I started using this app and I was inputting my normal breakfast. I thought that was really healthy, but I realize how unbalanced it was, and I have enough protein and the facts were way too high. And so I’m really happy because I think of it with the app and see like what breakfast would taste good and be very well-balanced, and this is it. This is a perfect oatmeal, so yeah.
I really encourage you to download this app and just check if your current breakfast is like balanced lunch time. I kind of want to try a new recipe today and see if that works out. I have something in my mind, but I don’t know if it’s going to work, but if it does, I think it’s going to be a good recipe. I want to do the idea of an omelet but obviously vegan, I’m going to use a potato carrot. Some broccoli, some cauliflower and then I’m like the doll ways: chickpea, flour, rice, flour, so meal, something like that in dough.
So that’s the plan. Now, let’s do it expectations vs. Reality? Oh well, it’s definitely not what I wanted yeah. This is my lunch. So basically, all I did was editing articles on my computer. It’s pretty gloomy outside it’s pretty cold. It’s pretty moody, doing a little break out of the computer. I am going to make myself some chai latte with soy milk, very simple recipes that I have my ebook and after that I think I’ll just work a little bit more, my computer and then I will work out and then what do I have planned? Yes, I need to think about a new class for the week yoga class for dinner.
I decided to make a recipe out of the remaining things that I had in my fridge, which were vegetables and some red rice that I had cooked a few days ago. So I start to chop my shallots, my mushrooms, everything that needs to be chopped, and I start to heat that up in a pan using no oil, because I don’t find that it’s really useful. I use a little bit of curry, spice mixed that well and when it started to cook I add the zucchini again mix that well and then once it’s reduced a little bit, I add my cooked rice, not too long.
This is really the last step of the recipe I add a full can of coconut milk, and that makes it really creamy. It’s like a little risotto, but obviously very short in time, and I finish with the greens, broccoli, because greens really don’t need to be cooked for a lot of time. As I mentioned, this recipe makes two serves, so what I did is I split it in half and on the ad I entered my new recipe for two serves.
What I really like is this little feature. You can scan pretty much anything. It finds everything it’s incredible and then I added the remaining ingredients and I also decided to top it with some nutritional yeast dinner is served, so it smells amazing. I love it. I’m going to check with you so the app basically says I’ve eaten a bit too much fat and that’s just basically because of the coconut I’m going to put that down before it.
It’s just because of the coconut milk that I put a lot off. I don’t eat coconut milk every day, so that’s totally fine. Overall, I think the day is pretty balanced and for now I just think that this will fill me up and I won’t be hungry after. If I really feel the need to eat, I will eat. I will not like let this app dictate my eating, but it’s a really good way for me to kind of realize what I’ve been eating and I like that.
The focus is not just on calories, and it gives you a lot of tips on how to make your meals more balanced. It gives you recipes and stuff. If you go premium, you have like a lot more choice and also it’s great because it tracks the activities that I have in my Apple read so yeah. It kind of puts it into the calories that I kind of need for my day, which is great. You see like I am really fine using that kind of app and I’m like I’ve, never had an eating disorder.
I just want to say – and I probably should have said that at the start of this article, but I just want to say that I don’t think it’s healthy to track what you’re eating. If you have trouble with food, if you have some sort of eating disorder, as I told you in the previous article, I’m trying to lose weight, and I’m also trying to regain my natural appetite, because I lost a sense of what each food bringing me.
Because of our mental issues, and so for me, it’s really helpful. I think it teaches my body again what’s the value of each food and it teaches me a lot about how my meals are actually balanced or not, but yeah. I know that I’m able to take some step back from it all I wanted to say I really don’t want to promote something that would make your health indenter otherwise like if you’re fine with eating, and you just have a like a little goal or you just Want to eat healthier.
I think this is a really really good way to do it. It’s very easy to use didn’t take a lot of time. It’s really nicely integrated, but yeah. This is my day of eating. I hope you enjoyed and I will leave all the recipes in the description box below. I can’t wait to eat this and I’ll see you guys really soon. Bye,
