I have continued on a slow and steady weight loss journey. Recently I have decided to eat clean, meaning just protein and veggies, low carb, if you will.
I thought it would be difficult, since I love me some fresh baked bread and butter, but no.
I started this only a couple of days ago, however I am noticing a huge change in my cravings. Example?
Before I was (I am) an avid coffee drinker, but I have been coffee free for the past maybe 5 days, which I find odd.
I don't even miss it... yet.
My meals consist of mostly salads with meat and cheese, just basic stuff that I enjoy. I was never a huge desserts or sweets person, but more of a spicy/salty girl with the cravings of chips and dips, jalepenos, cheese, nuts, and SODA! I love SODA! Now, it's a little different. Instead of soda, I turn to mineral water with lime and salt, I get the same sensation of soda without the sugar. Honestly, I'm not having any cravings and I am not constantly hungry. I eat when my stomach growls and attempt not to go more than six hours between meals. I also am very practical, meaning when I go to the market, I spend less than 10€ and eat like a queen for the next 3 days. I also attempt to vary my meals. For example, for breakfast I will have a salad. For lunch, I will eat a protein and veggie plate (most of the time I will have leftovers) and for dinner, another salad with perhaps a hard boiled egg, some cheese or leftovers from lunch! Then the next day, I will switch it up!
I don't have time to obsess about what I am going to make or eat. I feel too much choice can lead to bad choices! I simpy buy a couple of things from the market and vary it up that way, staying within the border I have created for myself.
Wish me luck and happy eating!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
