What I Ate WednesdayPosted on November 12, 2014 at 12:18 am
I get asked about my eating habits a lot on Instagram. It’s actually kinda funny because I don’t actually count calories or macros or anything. I eat when I’m hungry and try to stick to whole, clean options.
Right when I wake up I usually eat a protein pumpkin cookie and drink a cup of coffee. The cookie recipe can be found here.
Breakfast…my fav! I ate this as a pre-workout meal so it’s massive. 2 slices of turkey bacon, 1/2 of a grapefruit, asparagus, and some overnight oats. I also drank a cup of hot green tea with this meal.
This was a quick post-workout meal. I had 1/3 cup of pineapple and a protein shake. I used one scoop of this protein mixed with cinnamon and 1 cup of vanilla almond milk.
I was on a coffee date with a friend and got a little hungry so I got a small cup of coffee and ate a protein bar that I had in my purse. It was a Quest bar…my favorite flavor: Cookies and Cream! This is the only protein bar that I really eat.
I got home from coffee and knew I didn’t have much time before I had to be at work, so I whipped up a quick Mexican chicken bowl for a late lunch. What’s in it? A little bit of brown rice, shredded chicken, shredded lettuce, salsa, shredded cheese, plain Greek yogurt (sour cream replacement), and cilantro. Not pictured: a side of asparagus.
I got home from work around 7:30 and didn’t feel like cooking and Adam (my husband) ate a chicken bowl (above) for dinner. So for dinner I had 2 hardboiled eggs, broccoli, and a raw energy bite.
I also drank 120 ounces of water throughout the day.
A lot of people tell me that I eat a lot of protein and carbs throughout the day…and I do. But I’m also pretty active and it works for me. Like I said, you’ve got to figure out what works best for you, your lifestyle, and your goals.
I seriously suggest keeping a food diary if you’re struggling with your health & fitness journey. Sometimes we don’t realize how much we’re actually eating unless we document it. Seeing it all written out is a big help if you’re just starting to eat healthy.
