Im a huge fan of following the 80/20 rule. I eat healthy, balanced food 80% of the time & then I have the freedom to eat whatever the hell I want the other 20% of the time. Honestly, it keeps me sane an allows me to eat healthy the majority of the time. Few days go by without some chocolate or a treat of some sort. And so far it works pretty well, as long as Im not out of control 20% of the time!
On days like yesterday when I literally work all day from 9-9 its easy to eat healthy because every meal & snack preplanned and prepacked plus – it allows me a little extra wiggle room for a night time snack if Im feeling snacky.
Toasted bagel with Veggie Neufchatel – which Im pretty sure just means Cream Cheese in some fancy language.
Snack #1: Dannon Greek Yogurt
This was my first time trying this kind & I was so excited when I saw it on the dairy shelf at the grocery store.
They were $1.19 each, which is so cheap for prepackaged Greek yougurts. Oikos or Fage is $2.00 at the cheapest & onsale.
They come in Strawberry, Vanilla, & Plain flavors & are 0% fat.
It had the consistency of regular yogurt and wasnt nearly as thick as I would of expected for Greek yogurt.
It tasted exactly like Strawberry flavored regular yogurt, which I neither like or paid for.
I still have the Vanilla to try, which I am hoping changes my opinions. They were sold out of the Plain, but I also look forward to testing that one out. As for the Strawberry I wouldnt buy it again.
I had a banana, some Quaker Oatmeal Squares, &Vanilla soy milk.

Snack #2: Anjou Pear
Dinner: WW Thin Bun – my grocery store is not carrying sanwich thins anymore! – with some Oasis hummus, slice of pepperjack, & romaine with a side of baby carrots.
Although I ate healthy all day I definitely didnt eat enough. When I made it home Matt & I broke into our new favorite snack. Kinda like the sandwich I forgot to take the photo until it was too late! Buy these, try these! YUM!
Are you a 80/20 eater? How would you describe your eating pattern? What tips works well for you?
Have a great Sunday!
