Food Friday!!!!

Fri Yay

I have the day off from school and I really need it!  I am going to hit an Orange Theory class, get a massage, and do a little retail therapy.  I really need to find a new pair of running shoes.  

I am also going to go to the grocery store for my meal prep Sunday!  One of my friends wanted me to post what my meals look like for a day.  I really enjoy looking at other people’s meals so I thought why not post a day of my meals.  Just to warn you, they are not super glamorous, but I am just being real with you all.  

Meals For A Day

Breakfast

  • 2 Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cups topped with 1 teaspoon almond butterpumpkin baked oats
  • 1 cup of coffee with 1 tablespoon half and half
  • 1 cup of green tea (at work)

 

 

Morning Snack

Vanilla Almond Coconut Smoothie

 Vanilla Shakeology, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 tablespoon of almond butter, 80z coconut water, and ice.  Blend and enjoy! 

This usually holds me over until about 12:30

Lunch

  • Steamed Broccoli (½ cup)
  • Baby Carrots (1 serving)
  • 1 Small Heirloom Tomato (I accidentally microwaved it with my veggies, but it was still good)
  • 1 Chicken Apple Sausage Sliced (I like Aidell’s brand)

I pretty much mixed this all together and ate it.  It’s a random lunch that I threw together at the last minute this morning.  It was pretty tasty.

Afternoon Snack

  • 1 Small Apple
  • I was still a bit hungry, so I threw together 1 handful of homemade trail mix (chex, raisins, raw almonds)

Dinner

  • Mexican Lasagna (topped with mashed avocado)

I saw this recipe on a blog that I follow and had to try it.  Check out the recipe.  It’s super yummy and super healthy.  Even the kids loved it.  

After Dinner Treat

  • 1 small square of dark chocolate (Trader Toes pound plus 72%).  If you have not tried this chocolate, you have to NOW!!!!!  

That’s all for the day! 

I am pretty basic when it comes to my meals.  I tend to stick to the same things which can get boring.  I always have a morning smoothie!  I workout early in the morning at 5:15am so I am always starving after.  I like to have my breakfast and then my smoothie later.  

Sometimes I will have a pre-workout snack like my no bake energy balls or half of a banana depending on the day and the type of workout.  Usually I just drink water and black coffee pre-workout unless my body tells me it needs more fuel.

I am planning to hit the grocery store this weekend and stock up for my 21 day Lean for Halloween Challenge.  Here is a glimpse of the recipes on my radar for next week.
