I caught a re-run of Oprah the other day featuring guest star Kirstie Alley. Kirstie was bringing Oprah up to speed on her weight loss battle and various TV projects. Oprah asked about a typical day of eating and Kirstie n into what she described as “monoeating.” Apparently, this refers to eating mostly the same thing every day.
I had to laugh at the term and then admit that I”m probably one of those! I simply just don’t mind eating consistently – it actually makes it simpler. If I get bored I do switch it up, but it works well for me.
Enough about me, though. Kirstie’s morning went something like this:
Breakfast: half a whole-wheat english muffin with an egg (the WHOLE egg, not just an egg white, she clarified) and fruit
Snack: Fage yogurt with flavored Stevia drops and cinnamon
Sound familiar?! I couldn’t wait to let you know that you eat like the stars!
Curious about my typical day? I love my monoeating!
Breakfast #1: 1 egg with toast and cottage cheese
Options #1: Oatmeal with a milk topping and 1 egg
Snack: Fage yogurt with English Toffee Stevia
Lunch #1: Salad with some sort of protein and either beans or bread or crackers
Option #2: Pastrami sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and low-fat mozzarella or cheddar
Snack: Protein shake (LFL vanilla PP, almond milk, blueberries) = YUM!
Option #2: Cottage cheese and strawberries
Dinner: Always a combination of protein, a starch, and a variety of vegetables
Are you a monoeater or do you like to switch it up everyday?
