Hey, hey! As promised, I’m sharing my Wednesday in meals. I’ll be honest, it’s helpful knowing you’re going to post everything you’ve eaten, so I’m going to be straight and tell you, typically an extra spoonful of peanut butter (or 3) might be added to this daily roundup. But, you will see I eat multiple times a day, favoring lots of snacking in lieu of huge meals, and that is very true to my usual eating routine.
7:30 Pre-breakfast – Coffee with collagen (forgot to snap a picture, but I am still including it!)
8:00 am Breakfast – 3 eggs scrambled with a side of blueberries. I also added a few pieces of avocado on top.
10:00 am mini snack: A little piece of banana and peanut butter before my workout (because I’m paranoid about being fueled prior to working out, so even though I wasn’t necessarily hungry, I still wanted little something).
11:00 am Post-workout snack – The rest of the banana went into a chocolate and mint protein smoothie (scoop of vegan protein powder plus 1 tsp peppermint extract, almond milk, ice).
1:00 pm Lunch: Random assortment of goodness; turkey roll ups (4 slices of turkey total), carrots and cucumbers with hummus, grapes, and an almond/walnut blend.
3:00 pm Afternoon Snack #1 Little cup of Purely Elizabeth Pumpkin Fig Granola. Holy wow. This stuff is good- thankfully, I kept in control using my 21 Day Fix container- granola is something I could take down an entire bag of if I wasn’t paying attention.
4:30 Afternoon Snack #2 Apple- which I almost forgot to take a pic of!
6:30 Dinner: This was a bit accidental, but because of unusual work schedules for both Matt and I this week, my dinner plan got a bit mixed up. I ended up grabbing butternut squash noodles, which were pre-spiraled and ready to go in the veggie department at Whole Foods. If you follow me on Snapchat (@activebyannie), you know I was feeling a little guilty about this purchase, since I own a spiralizer…well, it was worth it…made dinner prep and clean-up a cinch. I won’t make a habit of it though! Over the butternut squash noodles was ground pork which I cooked in ghee with red onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano. I topped with chopped spinach and rosemary- super tasty and if you’re into the Whole 30 program, it is a compliant dinner option (I am not doing the Whole 30, but since I don’t usually eat gluten, some of my meals end up falling into the Whole 30 category).
And in about 20 minutes, I’ll be diving into my first ever pint of Halo Top! It was on sale at Whole Foods, and since I hear nothing but rave reviews, I decided to give it a try! I chose the Mint Chocolate flavor- I’ll let you know what I think of it! I am someone who really loves full-fat, traditional ice-cream (Ben & Jerry’s to be exact), but I am always willing try something new! I’ll let you know!
There you have it! A full day of eats! Let me know if you have any questions about any of the things I posted! Have a great night!
Question of the day: Do you favor multiple, small meals, or less, but larger meals?
