I always enjoy seeing what people eat on a daily basis, so I thought I would share with you what I had to eat today. It was a pretty typical day of eating for me: 3 main meals with 2 – 3 snacks. I don’t keep track of calories, but I do keep a tally in my head of the number of servings from the different food groups: whole grains, lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and dairy. I also included my workouts for the day.
6:30 a.m. Pre-run
2 Clif Shot Bloks before my run
6:45 a.m. 6 mile run, easy pace
8:30 a.m. Breakfast
Overnight oats + Homemade English muffin with mashed avocado and nutritional yeast
9:15 a.m. 30 minutes of weight lifting at the gym
11:30 a.m. Snack
Pita chips with cottage cheese and salsa mixed together + dates
The cottage cheese and salsa mixture might sound a little strange, but trust me, it is really good. I’ll spare you a picture because it definitely doesn’t look to appetizing.
2:00 p.m. Lunch
This was a really late lunch for me due to my dentist appointment. My lunches usually include something quick and easy–leftovers or something pre-made. Today I had a Quinoa Stuffed Pepper from last night’s dinner, plus a chicken kale quinoa pre-made burger from Costco. I really liked the chicken patties!
4:00 p.m. Decaf iced Americano with cream
Cullen was not going down for his nap, so we took a drive in the car so he could fall asleep.
5:00 p.m. Snack
Cereal with almond milk
6:00 p.m. Dinner
This is a quick, easy, healthy dinner I love! All we had to do was grill the chicken and caramelize some pecans before it was ready.
Spinach + chicken with lemon pepper + strawberries +caramelized pecans + poppyseed dressing
I also had another English muffin with Earth Balance vegan butter.
7:15 p.m. One hour hike in the mountains.
I rarely have a late-night snack. And there you have it, a pretty typical day of eating for me.
