“Normalized” Meal Plan


The UrbanFarmFoodista has been addressing health issues of late and recently created a whole food meal plan with the help of a nutritionist. It is designed to get out of the cycle of dieting, binging, overeating and obsessing about body image. The plan is brilliant in its simplicity – three meals a day plus two snacks and never going much more than three hours without eating. I have noticed a profound difference in mood, energy, and feelings of satiety. Having a meal plan has eliminated the bargaining and decision-making that has often been at the expense of my well-being. It is also a way to become more aware of true hunger as I move toward intuitive eating. I thought I’d share my breakfast today to demonstrate how simple it is. I enjoyed 3/4 cup berry yogurt, 2 tablespoons Craisois, 2 tablespoons shredded coconut, 2 tablespoon slivered almonds and 1/4 cup granola. No special food, no fake food and no worries. It was filling without being overly so and I feel completely satisfied.
