Shrimp, Cucumber and Mint

Today was such a gorgeous day here in New York. Spent most of it outside, soaking up the sun. Hopefully I'll be able to go for a nice run this weekend if the weather stays like this, the first outdoor jog of the year :) lol very excited. I also had a microdermabrasion done today which, as mentioned in my skin care video, I've been loving! Think I'm becoming slightly obsessed (in a good way), the texture of my skin is just so smooth and soft. I love it. It's great for people with oily skin, or who suffer from acne scars or skin discoloration.

Anyway it's been a while since I shared a food log entry, so here is one from today! :)


Healthy Food Inspiration Log

Breakfast:
- Two eggs. sliced tomato and avocado (my fav recently)  
- Smoothie: Coconut water, spinach, frozen berries, banana
Lunch:
- Shrimp, cucumber and mint salad (so good!)
Snack:
- An apple and some baby carrots
Dinner:
- Grilled chicken, cauliflower and sweet potato fries  

Note:
I never count calories or think about fat content (for ex. in avocados) - if it's healthy, it's healthy! The rawer and the least processed, the better. 

And just a little disclaimer :) 
I sometimes share what I eat from day to day as a source of inspiration for others who like healthy food ideas. These posts are in no way meant to influence the way you guys should eat, everyone is different! And we are all in different stages on our way to optimum, beautiful & healthy bodies. These are just little inspirations!

What did you eat today? Join me in these food logs and share your healthy meals with all of us! XOXO

  10. Love those food posts, thanks :)
    What I ate yesterday:
    Breakfast: carrots (I slept in until 10, then went running for an hour, until I showered and everything, it was around 11.30 and I wasn't that hungry so I ate carrots only)
    Lunch: Bulgur with broccoli, onion, zuccini and a little tomato sauce ( I had one somewhat "large" portion so I split my lunch in two. I ate one at 1 and later around 3)
    Dinner: 2 bananas ;)

    the Bulgur is soooo filling! not to mention so so so healthy :)

  14. Annie,
    You inspire me to eat healthy and make better meal choices everyday! Last summer, I really focused on eating foods that made me look and feel better but once I got back to college in the fall, I began to eat whatever and whenever. Today was a huge reality check for me. I wouldn't consider myself fat, but I'm not happy with the way I feel and look, so I decided to make a change. I'm hoping that it'll be a life change, rather than a temporary, get-fit-for-summer change.
    Today, I ate:
    - breakfast: banana and a little bit of Special K cereal (I was in a rush!)
    - lunch: whole wheat bread w/ banana and peanut butter (I'm going to try to cut out bread/pasta/rice)
    - snack: orange, apple
    - dinner: salad w/ grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, and hard boiled egg

  16. Avocado is one of my favorite to eat anytime what do you think about quinoa? I love it beside the obvious that is a great source of protein and vitamins.

  21. Hi Annie ! I'd like to have an advise.
    In the morning, I have two slices of wholemeat bread with some butter on them.
    Would you say that I'd rather stop putting butter and use peanut butter instead ? I do not know which one is best for my body !!

    Thank you so much, you really inspire me !
