Trying to Eat Healthier

I’m trying to make healthier, smarter choices. Just small ones here and there (as I sit here, nomming on some Pumpkin Pie KitKats ). Each morning, especially before work, I make sure I have myself a shake. I switched to non-lactose containing milks (Fairlife ultra-processed or almondmilk), and I’ve noticed a HUGE change in how my body is digesting! Yay for that win against IBS!

I’m hungry!

Man, oh man, that picture makes me hungry!! It’s part of Subway’s FreshFit. This particular one is for the kiddos. My kids LOVE the FreshFit food. I happen to like it, too, though I’m not a huge fan of the yogurt. I prefer baked chips. Also, I get a bottled water instead of a diet soda. The sugar substitutes are prone to give me migraines, XD.

When I was pregnant with Madi, and I was working, I would eat, literally every day, a grilled chicken sub, loaded with lettuce, cheese, mayo (so healthy, :lol:), cucumbers, mustard, pickles, and tomatoes. It was so delicious. I’d always get a foot-long, and have the second-half sitting in the back for me to snack on between customers. It was an extremely healthy thing for me to eat, and it kept me full through-out the whole shift. Not much did that.

Every time I go to Subway, I get either the grilled chicken or a basic club. They always include the same ingredients though: mustard, cheese, pickles, cucumbers, tomatoes and mayo. It’s not really a comfort thing, it’s just what I like. The kidlets get the roast beef kid-sized ones, with lettuce, cheese, and a little bit of mayo. Josh switches around often, so I never know what he’s going to get. He’s the unpredictable one, but I like that about him.

Dang it, now I’m craving a sub, :lol:. Maybe I can convince Kristen to watch my kids, if I run out and get her some too. It’s not that far away. It’s literally a five-minute walk from here. Not that I would walk, of course. Though, that would be the logical solution, though, wouldn’t it?

So, would you prefer your “bodadonk butt” and “cottage cheese thighs”, or would you rather have a yummy and delicious sub, made your way?

Posting this made me so hungry, and made me crave me some Subway, that I had Josh get some for us for dinner. Kids had raisins instead of apples, but we have apples at home, so that worked out. Josh got identical to what I did, except he chose the 3-meat trio, instead of chicken. All the toppings were the same though. They ended up being out of all baked chips, so I ended up with regular Cooler Ranch Doritos. They were still nummy, though 🙂
