As I sit here scarfing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for a late lunch (because I didn’t have breakfast or a mid-morning snack) I’m feeling some freedom that I don’t need to have it all together. I have previously avoided posting “what I’m eating”-type posts on Instagram because it’s not always healthy and I was afraid of what people would think (I’m a dietitian, I should always eat perfectly healthy right?).
Not exactly. I’m declaring today I’m not perfect. I am a dietitian, but also a regular woman who sometimes skips breakfast, a lot of times chooses unhealthy foods, and mostly has found her calling on Periscope (ha. ha?). I want to write for 31 days on my imperfect snacking. The good, the healthy, the ugly, all of it. I am doing this in hopes to bring some accountability to myself to choose healthier options, and also to break down lies that I am a picture of perfect health (or even the misperception that I should be).
You can join me by posting the hashtag #imperfectsnacking. Show me your imperfect snacks as well! And if you only post healthy things, you will be disqualified.
I’ll also periscope occasionally during these 31 days.
Throughout these posts I will make bold some recommended healthy snacks as a quick reference for you if you want some new ideas.
Let’s nourish our bodies, be honest about how we do that in these next 31 days, and even cheer each other on. Even if it’s because we had one donut instead of two.
