If I had to describe how I’ve eaten and/or felt about food for the past month, some words that come to mind include:

  • Bottomless pit
  • Nom, nom, nom
  • Ravenous
  • Can’t stop, won’t stop

Ever since I went to Chicago in April, I just cannot stop eating ALL THE FOOD. Maybe that bike tour expanded my stomach? With so much going out to eat and social events lately, it’s just been really hard to “be good.” I am still food prepping and eating healthy during the work day, but my snacking at night and splurging on the weekends has gotten a little out of control lately. I’m trying really hard to reign it back in, but it’s been tough!

That said, the food picture roundup below doesn’t really include all my bottomless pit type noshing. Who would really want to see pictures of random slices of cheese, crackers, chocolate chips, and spoonfuls of peanut butter? Instead, here’s a recap of some of the meals I’ve had over the past couple of months. Enjoy!
