Remember our other two surveys Lori’s part and Michelle’s part, well here is another fun survey that we have seen a few fellow bloggers do and thought again it was a great idea to do it too! Hope you don’t mind getting to know us a little more 😉 We took just some of the questions that we felt like answering.
Time to learn little more about us at the moment.
Today our survey is a little more about what we eat.
1. What do you eat for breakfast?
What we eat for breakfast tends to vary. We sometimes have a green juice along with some coconut oil, gelatin, and perfect fit protein powder. Sometimes we add in fruit, although due to experimenting with our skin issues we have been avoiding fruit for about a month now. Lori does not miss fruit, but Michelle does. Both of us we enjoy having healthy fats with some protein for breakfast. If we want more carbs we have been enjoying local raw honey.
2. How much water do you drink a day?
We drink when we are thirsty. Trying not to overdo our water intake as we mentioned before about fixing our metabolism. Some days we drink more water than others, but if we had to guess on average maybe 6-12 cups.
3. How many calories do you eat a day?
No idea. We don’t really track calories a whole lot since we eat pretty nutrient dense foods. We stopped counting calories over 4 years ago and have not looked back since. 80-90% of our diet is real whole foods so we do not stress over calories.
We don’t feel our ancestors really counted so why should we. In addition, we find it hard to believe nutrition apps off your iphone as each site may say something different for nutritional value. So we feel we do not need to really stress about counting. Plus we have read about companies giving false information on their labels.
But thought we counted macros? Well yes and no. We follow basic guidelines. Our eats tend to change a lot so hard to keep up.
4. What are your favorite healthy snacks?
Protein sludges made from perfect fit protein powder, avocado puddings (our favorite recipe in our cookbook), protein english muffins, protein thin mints. And eating plantains with tahini. And love snacking on any new recipe we are testing, which this time of the year is a lot 😉
5. What do you usually eat for dinner?
Either fish or meat with veggies and sometimes with a carb source ( like rice or plantains), half avocado and coconut oil. Oh and sometimes we add black lava sea salt. Simple protein, fat, and carbs.
6. What are your “bad” food cravings?
7. Do you take vitamins or supplements?
Yes fermented cod liver oil, probiotic, digestive enzymes, vitex, magnesium, l-glutamine are our staples lately. We have thrown in some other ones from time to time, but those are our main go-to supplements as wecontinue to heal our gut (digestive and skin issues) and balance our hormones. We will have to do a follow-up on supplements soon.
8. How often do you eat out?
Not that often unless we are traveling or our parents are in town.
9. Do you eat fast food?
No unless you consider wholefoods hot bar one, haha.
10. Who is your biggest supporter?
Each other. One great thing about being twins.
We only have this one life so we try to find balance with it all!
13. Do you drink alcohol?
Yes, not that often but we do. Again it is about finding balance that works for you and your lifestyle.
14. What was the last healthy thing you did?
Twins question: Take a question and leave us your answer.
Be passionate and fit.
