Healthy Balance

Calories are a funny thing in the media and the fitness world. How many calories? Too many calories? Not enough calories? Calories can be really negative they can create eating disorders. But also, they’re a great way to learn about food like nutrients and portions. calories are great way to lean about food. Even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) think so too. As it’s first thing you see on each Nutrition Facts label placing them front and center in bold type face. There’s always that tough line of the reality of weight loss, being in a calorie deficit, or weight gain, being in calorie surplus. When we become over fixated the joy of eating healthy becomes numbers and restrictions. You stop seeing the love that someone put into the food and you just see food as protein. For my own sake and my own view on calories I eat to satiation. I eat when I am hungry and try not to snack. I eat whole foods like grains, black beans, corn and squash. My favorite lunch is made up of homemade hummus, shelled sunflower seeds, sliced bell pepper, rice, pickled cucumber and onion and a filet of fish. Not the McDonald’s burger, but an actual nicely portioned filet. I like it in a single bowl and I cover it in as much sauce as I feel like that day. It is SO delicious.

Sauce:
2 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp local honey
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sliced cilantro
1tbp fine cut onion
Add red chili flakes to taste
Let this mixture sit in the refrigerator for at least 10 min.



It’s easier than you think
