1.) I am getting tired of all of the foods I have been eating and as a result I find myself skipping meals or just choosing to not eat.
2.) I am sure that my body is looking to receive nutrients from some of the foods that I haven't been eating. Variety is the spice of life, right?!?
3.) My energy levels are sooooooooooo low lately. Now, I can't blame this entirely on my food rut because I know that my crazy schedule, lack of sleep and tendency to over exercise are all contributing to my exhaustion issues. However, I am way too young to be feeling this tired all the time and I need to make a few changes.
This week at the grocery store, I picked up two new to me foods and I am excited to try them out and start experimenting a bit more with my diet. I bought a package of Black Bean Pasta which is exactly what it sounds like, pasta that is made with black beans. Clever, huh? It is very high in protein and looks delicious. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet but I have a few ideas floating around in my head. The other new addition to my grocery basket was a can of skinless and boneless sardines. I have to admit that I am very scared to try the sardines but I have heard that they are SO good for you. I love tuna and salmon so maybe I will just pop open the can and pretend that I am eating one of those instead.
Have you ever been stuck in a food rut?
How did you do you break out of it?
Any suggestions for new foods I should try?
