What's the best thing you ate today? (Motivational/Reflective)

As a way of trying to get to terms with my eating habits, I started asking myself what the best thing was that I had eaten that day. Doing that has really helped me confront the fact that it wasn't the chocolate bar (but the avocado and tomato with some seasalt) or the chips (but the homemade potato wedges), which is one of my first steps to coming to terms with the fact that the "filler foods" (e.g. chocolate, chips) aren't what I really enjoy eating: I mostly just do it out of habit.

So I am now asking all of you: what's the best thing you ate today?

    Today, the best thing I ate was a juicy orange when I came home from my sister's.
  • My lunch was a baby spinach salad with 1 serving of shredded cheese, candied pecans, and a blue cheese vinagrette. I had an avocado but it got all brown and bruised so I had to toss it.

    Chicken salad sandwich and some tortilla chips. But, that's all I've eaten so far. After supper in a couple hours my answer will be the nachos I made. :D

    I had a delicious salad for lunch, and got an iced mocha from Starbucks on my way back to the office. In hindsight, the salad was way tastier and satisfying than the mocha! (Salad was romaine, black beans, red pepper, tomato, corn, with *small* amounts of white cheddar cheese, red pepper ranch dressing, and jalapeno chips. YUUUUUM.)

    A homemade beef soup that I made that had a ton of veggies in it. Very flavourful and delish 😁

    Canned tuna w/ mayo, chipotle peppers, bac'n bits, lettuce and tomato. Grilled between two pieces of bread. Kind of like a tuna melt without the cheese. But that's only because I ran out of cheese.
