Nutritious Nomz

Welcome to my blog! My name is Amber and I'm all about living a balanced lifestyle. On my blog you'll find healthy recipes, examples of a balanced diet, workouts, relationship advice, product reviews, and rambling about my life.

Dinner was Dominos pepperoni bacon pizza and cinnasticks. I totally ruined my workout but is ain’t even mad. Dominos is life and worth every bite.

I picked one cardio workout and one toning circuit for today’s workout. Both exercises I pushed myself because you won’t get results if you don’t make yourself uncomfortable.

Lunch today was an acai bowl to-go from Bogart’s Cafe. They’re so refreshing and delicious.

Today is Mocha’s birthday! My dad bought her a cheeseburger from McDonalds and gave her half of a blueberry muffin. Of course you shouldn’t feed your dog cheeseburgers but once a year won’t hurt them. It made her so happy.

Breakfast this morning was a toasted double fiber english muffin topped with TJ’s cookie butter, banana, and cinnamon. Hot coffee on the side.

Anonymous asked: Hey amber! Love your blog. I just have a quick question. Would you ever consider veganism? 80/10/10?

I’ve considered becoming vegan for awhile. Except before it was for the wrong reasons. I wanted to be vegan so I wouldn’t have to eat out, eat junk food, etc. I admire those who stick to a balanced vegan diet, but I know it’d be way to easy for me to start restricting again.

For the 80/10/10, I wouldn’t want to eat just 5 bananas for breakfast or 4lbs of watermelon. I need more variety. I love that it is based on whole raw foods but it’s a diet that is expensive to maintain and unpractical. I would do the 80/10/10 diet for a month or a certain period of time but I definitely could not eat just raw foods.

I think at some point in the future I would like to have a mostly vegan diet. However it wouldn’t be strict and I’d be able to have greek yogurt and ice cream. If you’ve suffered from an eating disorder, the 80/10/10 diet could definitely make you restrict again or relapse.

Anonymous asked: "its summer, ill post more often!" lol yeah im sure. youre so spotty with your posts, obv this blog isnt a priority for you.

I’m sorry I don’t post as much as you’d like me to. I can definitely try to post more. However, I don’t feel the need to post meals I always eat or everything I put in my mouth. So I’ll be posting workouts, more recipes, updates on my life, etc. I’m going to try and make this blog more balanced rather than just focusing on food. I just got a new gym membership and will be posting my workouts regularly so be ready to check my blog more often! 

Relationship link is finally on my blog

I finally made the link. So far there’s date night ideas, and advice on keeping the conversation going. If you want advice answered on relationships then message me. Or ask me about anything related about food, fitness, working out, staying balanced, then I’ll respond to your message. 

The first few dates are filled with awkward moments. But don’t put so much pressure on yourself. If you’re shy and so is the other person, make it a group date. When your friends are around, you’ll feel more comfortable. You can go bowling with a group of friends, or make it a double date. If there’s more than just the two of you, there’s less pressure to completely carry the conversation.
Keep the conversation going by simply asking questions. Get to know them. Ask about their hobbies, their family, if they have pets, what’s their favorite animal, favorite tv shows/movies, their passions, etc. There are also certain dates that allow quiet time like watching a movie. Once the movie is done you can discuss what you thought of it, other movies you like, etc. 
Remember not to revel too much during the first few dates. Try to even be vague. It’s better to be mysterious than talk too much. The less you share, the more they’ll think about you and wonder. Of course you won’t always have to be mysterious, but if you really like them you should make it a challenge for them. Eventually when you’re in a relationship then you can be straight forward. Just don’t share your problems or anything too personal during the first 3 dates. Keep it light and fun. Remember that first impressions matter when it comes to dating. Of course there will be awkward moments and it takes time to get to know someone, but stay positive and keep your cool.

Anonymous asked: you should put up your dating section asap! lol i have a date tomorrow and would love your advice

What type of advice would you like? Do you want date ideas, outfits to wear, things to share/not share?

This morning my family and I went out for breakfast at Moena Cafe. I ordered their vegetable omelet with whole wheat toast on the side. When eating out an trying to pick healthy options, pick meals with lots of veggies and protein. Omelets are great breakfast options.
