Health and fitness update

Eggplant tacos with cucumber, spinach, tomatoes, onions

It's been a while since I've shared my healthy meals on the blog, so here goes! I'm still eating clean or healthy for at least two meals a day. And since I hit my target weight and BMI last month, I've just been focusing on maintaining my weight and doing some sort of fitness every single day. It's great when eating healthy no longer becomes a chore and becomes incorporated into your regular life. When I remembered, I snapped some photos of some of my recent healthy meals:

Black beans + veggie crumbles | I love mixing beans with veggie crumbles because this mix goes great in tacos, salads, as meatballs, or in a sandwich

Black Bean & Veggie Crumble Tacos with Spinach and Yogurt Sauce + Brussels Sprouts

Steamed asparagus and brussels sprouts | I love topping steamed veggies with lemon juice

Herb Crusted Salmon topped with tomatoes + Asparagus 

Sautéed Coleslaw + Spinach, Onion, Apple Slices | this is a quick and tasty dish that's perfect to eat on-the-go or as a late night snack

Mushroom Salmon + Asparagus | I ordered this dish at Ra Sushi, an Asian restaurant in Atlanta. Very delicious and I will definitely be recreating this dish soon!

Salmon Burger + Sweet Potato Fries + Onion Rings | OK, not an actual healthy meal. I love this Grub Burger salmon burger so much, and was craving the sides.  And I wanted to share one of my non-healthy meals. I have a few of these throughout the week, and I have still lost weight. I just make sure to have more healthy meals than non-healthy meals and to workout twice as hard after one of these meals. 

Sautéed Spaghetti Squash + Cole Slaw + Onions with Lemon Juice and Green Salsa | I had these ingredients on hand and mixing them turned out great! If you love a spicy, but savory dish, you will love this.

Veggie Burger Tacos (I cooked frozen veggie burgers then tore them into pieces) with Tomatoes, Spinach, Green Peppers, and Yogurt Sauce | I was starving this day, and these three veggie tacos made the perfect post-workout dinner. 

I appreciate the emails and social media messages sharing how my clean eating posts have helped you on your journey to living a healthier lifestyle! I'm so much happier practicing healthier habits, and I hope that you'll feel great about eating healthier and being physically fit too. It's a challenge to begin with, but it's so worth it!
