My Day in Food

Some people think eating healthy means either starving yourself, or eating salads all day. If you do it right, that is not the case at all. 

I decided to show you what a day in my food life looks like. I follow a low carb / high fat diet, but there are plenty of healthy options even if you are eating more carbs.

Some people at work say that I eat all day. Looking at this, they might be right.

As you can see, eating healthy does not mean starving or giving up good food.
