Today's brunch 🍴
About to chow down on this plate of breakfast tacos and I'm pretty darn excited about it. It’s actually pretty simple, I just used some:
- scrambled eggs
- sautéed spinach
Looking at the amount of food on this plate would have made me anxious back it the day. "It's too much food", "bacon is bad for you", "don't eat carbs". So I would eat a smaller meal or a smaller serving size, but in the end, I would be left hungry and looking for a snack within hours of eating.
Eating well is NOT about eating less or eating smaller meals. In fact, the idea that you can “boost" your metabolism by simply eating smaller meals more often is a bunch of nutrition BS. Your metabolism is not a thing, it doesn't live in your armpit, it is the sum of thousands of processes in your body including food, sleep, stress, age, and many, many other factors. So thinking smaller meals will "boost" it is simplistic at best.
When you eat, you should a meal that satisfies you and will keep you going for multiple hours. If you are hungry 1, 2 or 3 hours after eating, you've missed the point. It’s not about eating less, it’s about eating more food at your actual meals and less snacks. Stop looking for healthy snack ideas, you don’t need them, you just need to eat more REAL food at your actual meals! 👊
