Embracing Healthy Eating Habits

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to eat for a few days because this is something I’ve done too many times to start over again. It truly is serious, this is my health, my life I’m trying to change. I have PCOS so I also have to take that into account when it comes to planning out what I want to eat. I have a few books on Kindle with that have provided me some recommendations on what to eat like PCOS Nutrition Center Cookbook. Basically…nothing processed or at least not too much of it.

In the past I’ve gotten bored because I would run out of ideas or repetitively eat the same thing every single day. I literally would ate rice, chicken and veges with cornbread and watermelon every day for 3 months. What’s funny is I lost 30 lbs eating that way WITHOUT once exercising. Then I started eating junk again or I would overspend and then there would be food left in the refrigerator untouched because I’m the only one in my household that remotely eats healthy.

For this week I’m thinking seafood is going to be my choice of meat. My training for my new position starts this week early in the morning so I wont have time in the morning to just cook a nice wholesome meal and I don’t want to spend time after work trying to make a meal that takes forever. I also don’t want to spend a lot of money either on items I may not have a chance to use.

Peanut butter jelly sandwich, peanut butter sandwich and also shrimp scampi with spaghetti. Coconut pancakes.

For breakfast eggs with onions baby spinach and fruit.

  • Meat/Protein(s): Salmon, Shrimp, Tuna, Eggs
  • Fruit: Mango, Banana, Strawberry, Lemon
  • Vegetables: Onions, Parsley, Garlic, Baby Spinach, Carrots
  • Grain: Whole Wheat Bread, Coconut Flour, Rice (Already have), Oatmeal
  • Oils: Coconut oil
  • Nuts: Pistachios
  • Snacks: sunflower seeds, organic jalapeno chips, popcorn
  • Drinks: Water

That is my shopping. Now for the meal plan this week. Since I have to go to work during the weekdays and time management. I like eating heavy in the morning then lighter as the day goes on. It’s been working for me recently. Crazy simple and healthy is what I’m after.


  • (4am -5am) Breakfast with a side of strawberries and/or mangoes.
  • (8am -10am) Snacks
    • Sunflower seeds
    • Organic jalapeno chips
    • Pocorn
  • (12pm – 1pm) Lunch
  • (4pm – 5pm) Dinner with baked cinnamon banana.
    • Organic peanut butter and jelly whole wheat sandwich.
    • Organic peanut butter and banana whole wheat sandwich
    • Tuna sandwich

This is my meal plan for the next seven days.. It simple, repeatitve and not time consuming all of my recipes are less than 20 minutes to make, that’s how I like it. I’ll pick and choose from the list depending on what I had the other day and how much time I have. Next week I’ll switch up the meat I’ll be using and along with that comes different recipes.
