Chelsey's Diet Do-Over

Grad school's getting so busy and my health is getting worse! I need to change the way I eat if I want to feel good, and work hard, without making myself any sicker (Hello appendix attack of 2012, IBS, low iron, b12... the list goes on and on).

SO! I'm giving my diet a complete makeover, starting TODAY. That's right. From this moment on, I'm going to blog everyday about what I eat, and track updates on the way I feel, and how my health is improving.

I can already tell I feel more energized than I have in a long time, just because of what I have eaten today so far.

I want to challenge you! Yes you! The person reading this post, to change the way you eat (Less processed foods, LESS SUGAR, more water, more fruits and veggies, and definitely less meat). Together, we can do it. We can do anything together. So join me and feel the energy that these new foods can bring.

So here it is, my first day of new meals, and a new life. Exciting, isn't it?

1 Pumpkin Carrot Walnut Chocolate Chip muffin (that I made from scratch the day before. Also that's another thing. Less going out to eat, more making meals for yourself)
1 Cup of Strawberry Banana Juice
1 Bowl of Quinoa Cocoa Puffed Cereal with about a half a cup of Vanilla Almond milk
1 Cup of Blueberries as a snack
Black Bean Sprouted Chips with Salsa (Should be home made but it wasn't. Always a next time)

For lunch I made myself a salad, with Carrots, Cucumber, Tomato, Apple Slices, Blueberries, Cheese, and Broccoli.
I also made the Salad Dressing myself with oil, vinegar, garlic powder, and salt and pepper
As a side, I had apple slices with Cheese

For dinner I went a little bit off track. I had two slices of left over pizza hut pizza that my mom brought me.
And for a snack/dessert, I had my Pumpkin muffins and some strawberry banana juice

Will post pictures of the salad soon, and if I get enough requests I will do a video about how to make the salad dressing.
