The first, The Best Foods for Runners, makes me really happy because it lists 15 foods and most of my favorite regular go-to foods are on there.
I'm always happy to read about the health benefits of eating whole eggs and articles debunking the cholesterol concerns…considering I eat eggs more days than not. And considering I've eaten sweet potatoes the past three nights, it obviously makes me happy to see them make the list. Following that, normally bring a little thing of greek yogurt in my lunch, so it's good see that as well. Other favorites from the list that I eat regularly: chicken, whole grain cereals, mixed veggies, salmon, whole grain bread, and whole grain pasta.
Things that I like, but don't eat regularly: oranges, mixed salad greens (I eat a lot of salad, but I normally opt for a single type of lettuce instead of mixed), mixed frozen berries, and dark chocolate. And the two things I just can't get into: canned black beans and almonds.
The other article makes me even happier - Resolved: Eat the Damn Cookie! Okay!
The article goes on to explain that the mental torture involved in agonizing over whether or not to have a cookie is simply not worth it, just eat it already! No need to say more, I will! I pay attention to what I eat and aim to keep my overall diet healthy, but "everything in moderation" is my guiding principle. To put it simply, I love pizza and wine too much to eliminate it :)
What foods from the list are your regular favorites? What ones are you not a fan of?
Do you just eat the damn cookie or do you avoid it?
And who else is a Gossip Girl fan?! I'll talk more about that later…..but to put it simply, it's my new guilty pleasure on the treadmill and I loooooooove it!
