Variety is the Spice of Life

They say variety is the spice of life…


But I’m a creature of habit and I’d hate to think that makes me boring especially when I feel like my life is anything but!

IMG_3117With that, I do understand that we need variety in our lives – food included so I’ve been trying to change things up a bit.  It may not be much but it’s a step in the right direction:


My usual lunch:

It may look the same but instead of banana bread, that’s zucchini bread.  I tricked ya, huh? 😉


I’ve also been changing up my snacks a bit.  With the weather getting warmed, I’m craving smoothies more and more:

They say variety is the spice of life and I’m doing my best to embrace that in every aspect of my life.


How do you “spice up” your eats?

    I tend to get fixated on a certain thing (eggs, wraps, cereal) but I almost ALWAYS have it a different way every time by changing up the toppings/sauces/mix ins! I’ve actually noticed over the last couple of months since starting IE that I crave a lot of variety in my meals…it keeps eating fun!

  2. Michelle @ Eat Move Balance

    I tend to eat a lot of the same things, so to “spice things up”, I will pick up a new-to-me product or produce item to experiment with at home. I usually blog about it–so it’s fun to research the item and write about my thoughts on it.

    You totally tricked me with the bread switch up! I spice up my eats by picking up something new at the farmer’s market. My latest find was micro greens. It was fun to talk to the farmer about all the plants and the health benefits. Spice and Fun! Have a fabulous day!

    I am definitely a creature of habit and usually keep breakfast and lunches the same. I usually have a variety when I come to dinner though, especially since the weather is warmer now- more opportunity to grill!

  5. Jan @ Sprouts n Squats

    I usually get fixated on one thing for breakfast but then try and mix up my lunches and dinners so I don’t get sick of them. But usually when I try and force variety too much I’ll wish for what I always had instead 🙂
