So yesterday, the lovely Kat asked me a few questions over in the comment section. I decided that today would be the day to answer all of them, so here ya’ go:
What are some of your staples in your diet?
For breakfast, I eat a lot of oatmeal or grits.
Lunch is pretty basic: sandwiches, sweet potatoes, soup, etc.
A Brasilian diet will always consist of lots of rice and beans, so its a good thing that I love them both! =D We usually will have rice, beans and some meat for dinner.
Some of my favorite things to snack on are granola bars, yogurt, chocolate, raisins and popcorn!
Well, first of all, I looove homemade bread! =D My aunt makes these crescent rolls that are to die for! I also love healthified recipes, like the banana muffins (I’ll usually sub the oil/butter for more mashed banana) or a cinnamon breakfast cake that calls for plain yogurt instead of a lot of butter. I also love anything with chocolate, like my homemade thin mints or chocolate cobbler.
What are your views on counting calories, fat, carbs, protein?
I believe that everyone is different, and therefore requires different nutrition. Sure, we all have to stay within a healthy range of caloric intake and such, but I don’t think we should obsess over that. Right now, I am keeping track of my calories just because I’m trying to gain weight. Usually, though, I try not to and just go by what makes me feel my best when I eat it. Personally, I tend to do better on a diet that has plenty of complex carbs and protein. Fat is something that I definitely need, but I feel sluggish if I eat a lot of it in one sitting. All in all, I think its important to know what makes us feel best, but that counting calories isn’t always the best thing to do.
What’s your favorite workout?
I love circuit workouts, like what I’ve featured on my workout page. My absolute favorite though, would probably be kickboxing or running.
Hope you all enjoyed my answers to the questions!!!!!!
Now, I have some for you:
