As part of my marathon training, I need to get back into the habit of eating healthy foods. You know—whole foods, low sodium foods, unprocessed foods. Boring foods.
In fairness, not all healthy food is boring. But sometimes it seems like it is.
Case in point: All week long I’ve had brown rice and vegetables for lunch. Sometimes they were fresh, crisp, raw veggie sticks, other times they were left-over veggies from the night before. It tastes nice, but it’s not as lovely as deep-fried junk food!
Oh well. At least I’m out of brown rice now so will have to have something less boring for tomorrow’s lunch. Something nice and greasy for a Friday afternoon. Yes, that sounds nice.
Plus, one of the best ways to stay on track with healthy eating is to allow yourself treats every now and then. So, really, a Friday junk food fix will help with my healthy eating goals! (Right?)
