Happy Eating: Smoothie Bowl

Happy Eating: Smoothie Bowl

Hey Sweet Thang,

Cheers to you!

Me 1.2 I have never been a “skinny” or “thin” girl… I was thick and when weight comes, it goes straight to my face and belly. Although as I get older it shifting a bit to my thighs. I actually love my thickness, I think it is sexy! Well anyways… I have been really happy for the past 7 months, I have been on a happiness journey to do things I love! I traveled a bit, participated in different events outside my normal routine, and made new friends. About 8 months ago I filed for divorce and in that process I lost a nice amount of weight and I loved how my body looked and wanted to keep it off but with my type of happiness it correlates to lots of calories 🙂

My happiness is socializing over food and drinks with amazing people! Oh my gosh, I go out to eat a lot with my co workers, my friends and family. It is like an unspoken rule, if we are hanging out we HAVE TO HAVE FOOD AND/OR DRINKS. Lately, I have been eating a whole bunch of stuff that may have not been good for the body. I used to have this saying, “Eat to live, not live to eat”  Thing is food is amazing. The way it is prepared, the many different flavors and seasonings, the presentation!!

The presentation is what gets me! It has to be pretty! Pretty food catches my attention and I am sucked in. Especially foods with bright colors, something about it just makes me happy 🙂 What is your weakness when it comes to food?

Anyways, I realized I was picking up some weight and saw that my clothes are not fitting me the way I like so I was like I have to stop this. I saw on Instagram (my favorite app) this smoothie bowl. I fell in love. I went to pinterest to find recipes and saw so many beautiful pictures of smoothie bowls and I was like I HAVE TO MAKE IT! So I did… I created a pinterest board as well if you want to follow it!

    Hey Cicely,
    When are you eating this during the day? It seems like a lot for one meal. Looks and sounds yummy, though!

    • Thank you, yes, I ate it for breakfast. It looked like a lot but I did not get full but I was satisfied. I made a movement maybe an hour later and was hungry 3 hours later which I guess is ok. I am working on eating larger filling breakfast and lighter meals for lunch and dinner.
