Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup. Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!) They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!
My “food & drink” topic for this Friday is Five Healthy Items I have Everyday
I’m the first to admit that I don’t eat healthy. If there is a sweet around, I will eat it.
But here’s what I eat/drink everyday:
I would prefer waffles, pancakes or French toast with syrup, butter and bacon!! But I do eat oatmeal everyday for breakfast. I add raisins, cinnamon and sometimes fruit or nuts.
2. Herbal Tea
I drink it in the morning and sometimes in the evening. I gave up caffeine so this was my alternative. (I am dying for a cup of coffee as I write this.) I buy leaves in many flavors and I also have tea bags (which don’t taste as good.) But yes, I still crave a vanilla latte. (I get decaf ones in Starbucks for a treat.)
3. Greek Yogurt
I have it for lunch. I usually add granola. Would I rather have pizza? YES!!
I keep it at my desk. Do I drink as much as I should? Not at all. The only time I really get thirsty is when I’m on the treadmill. But I haven’t had soda in years and I don’t miss it at all.
Sometimes, I eat one for a snack at work but mostly I eat one in the evening. It’s my snack. I don’t keep cookies or chips in the house so this is what I grab when I am hungry.
Of course, there are other things that sneak into my diet that aren’t so healthy.
Happy Running! What healthy things do you eat on a daily basis?
