First things first, every single one of you that comment on yesterday’s post, whether on the blog or on Facebook (love you Shawna & Sara), are amazing. You helped make me feel not guilty at all, and your personal stories were so nice to hear, so thank you all! 🙂
On to my favorite thing ever. Food. My Mom recently asked me if eating is my favorite part of my day. Yes, yes it is. For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, I thought I’d show you what a typical work day looks like when it comes to eating. This is what I ate on Monday!
1/2 cup oatmeal, 46 grams egg white beaters, water, and topped with 1 tbsp of peanut butter & 2 oz of grilled chicken for extra protein. I prep all of the ingredients in a tupperware container the night before so that the oats can soak up the water and get soft. Then the next morning after my workout I microwave it, and every 30 seconds I stir the oatmeal so that the egg whites don’t scramble. I’ve noticed that egg white beaters don’t scramble, while the egg white from an actual egg does.
This is my breakfast after my morning workouts and it always does a great job of keeping me full and happy after a tough workout.
This is eaten during the snack time, but it is typically considered my lunch. A tuna wrap! I mix 1 can of solid white albacore tuna with 1 tbsp of Olive Oil Mayo, and spread that in a Joseph’s Lavish wrap.
Strawberry greek yogurt with peanut butter. ‘Nuff said!
FRIGGEN STARVING. I had a random craving for a banana with peanut butter and enough carbs left for this, so I went for it. This tasted as good as I had imagined it would!
For dinner I made myself a chicken stir-fry that also included broccoli and yellow peppers. Stir-fry is one of the easiest and healthiest meals in my repertoire, and I never get sick of it! I typically only eat it for dinner simply because it does not fill me up enough for it to be a lunch.
3 Suzie’s rice crackers with 1 tbsp of peanut butter and 1 tbsp of greek whipped cream cheese. I love rice cakes, but because I’m all about getting lots of peanut butter in every bite, the thickness of rice cakes aren’t a good ratio for peanut butter, but these rice squares are thin so it’s the perfect rice cake to peanut butter ratio! Also had 3/4 serving of a casein shake after this as well!
