So this morning I ate pizza for breakfast.
It wasn’t even a healthy breakfast pizza. It was pizza with pepperoni and sausage. No vegetables.
What? How is that even possible for a health-minded person?
Well, I’ll tell you.
See, I believe you can eat any food you want.
In this case, my husband Mike and I visited a sick friend in the hospital yesterday. We ran errands after that.
I knew I wasn’t going to feel like cooking after running around all day. So I decided I wanted pizza for dinner.
It was good. But we didn’t eat all of it. So I put what was left over into the refrigerator.
This morning when I woke up, I thought about what to eat for breakfast.
Now under normal circumstances, my decision is already made.
I have oatmeal/quinoa mixed together most of the time. Sometimes, I will have scrambled eggs with cheese, with Salsa on the side to mix things up.
But this morning, I wanted pizza.
So I took 1 slice of pizza out of refrigerator. It was a pretty large slice, so I cut it in half.
I have learned from experience the right amount I need to eat for me in one serving.
I heated it up in the microwave. Got myself a large glass of water with lemon and ginger to wash it down.
Then, I sat down to eat it. It was still good!
I was satisfied. No guilt here.
Here is my thought: If you want to have pizza for breakfast some time, then eat it!
Personally, I eat healthy about 80-90% of the time. The percentage varies depending on the week.
The other 10-20% is for times when I want to eat less than healthy food, such as a piece of birthday cake at a party or ribs at a barbecue.
Or for those rare occasions when I want pizza for breakfast!
The key is to eat these things on your terms, in an amount that satisfies your hunger but doesn’t make you feel stuffed.
You stay out of Bottomless Food Pits.
Isn’t it great that you have the flexibility to eat any food you want? But you get to choose what you want…both now and in the future.
While I had pizza for breakfast today, I won’t have it for breakfast tomorrow. The oatmeal/quinoa gives me energy all morning and I like that.
Even though the pizza tastes good, it may wear off before lunch. If it does, I have an apple at the ready if I get hungry.
So what kind of eating day will it be for you? Will you feel good about your choices?
Today, I feel good about managing my portion of pizza for breakfast. Food freedom feels good!
Love to hear your thoughts about this.
