If you asked me in the past how many meals I eat per day, I probably would have said, "About 4." That's not true, though. Apparently, I eat about 10 times a day.
I started writing down everything I ate over this past weekend because I was trying to figure out a pattern to why I've been getting headaches and a few other weird symptoms lately. I thought maybe I wasn't eating a balanced diet and was getting too much sugar and my blood sugar levels were crashing and making me feel bad. While I've been making a conscious effort to eat better this past week, I know that writing things down skews it even further. But I've been eating when I'm hungry and trying to eat better. And that means eating 10 times a day, I guess.
Here are some of my mini-meals over the past weekend:
Apple and whole grain toast with 1/2 avocado
4 Gardein strips and 1 bunch kale chips
Wild rice salad
Peanut and dulse snack mix and an applesauce cookie
Polenta/black bean bowl
Wasa crackers with white bean spread
Pea Soup and wild rice salad
Pretty good, huh?! I'm not consciously trying to NOT eat anything, just trying to eat more fruits and veggies and while grains. So far, no headache!
How often do you eat?
