As a registered dietitian and well-being coach in a corporate health care setting in New York City, I encourage others to make self-care a priority. It's so important to feed your body with wholesome food, especially during stressful times, to help fight off negative body reactions to environmental stressors.
I'm a huge advocate for everyday balance, especially when it comes to food. I don't count calories, I mindfully give in to my cravings, and I never restrict. I am an equal lover of kale and french fries. Juggling a full-time job with eatsrealfood.com, I also like to keep things simple in the kitchen.
I have a rotating schedule every other week, starting work at either 7 a.m. or 1 p.m. I almost always have overnight oats prepared in the refrigerator for the early shift. During late-shift weeks, I eat something light, like cereal and/or banana and nut butter so I can eat a light lunch or hefty snack before heading into work. But the truth is, I eat a variety of things, so what you see here is not an everyday occurrence.
Here's a look into my day during the early shift!
