I have had several requests to do some more personal blog posts. If you have any ideas shoot them my way! Next up I am working on a day in my life post. A request I get often is to share what I eat in a day. Now keep in mind this varies but these are just a few sample ideas of meals I eat. I was going to break this down by day but decided to break it down my meals to give you ideas of what I eat for each meal.
B R E A K F A S T
Greek Yogurt + honey + blueberries + granola
Sauteed Kale + Shreds of Parmesan + 1 Fried Egg + Sliced Tomato + Bacon
PB Toast with sliced bananas, coconut flakes and a drizzle of honey + grapefruit
Oatmeal on the go from Starbucks
Green Smoothie- coconut water, 1 banana, 2 handfuls spinach or kale or both, frozen mango, frozen pineapple, and a scoop of Greek Yogurt.
Hard boiled egg + morning star sausage patty + avocado + tomatoes
Energy Balls- These are a quick easy breakfast to grab and eat when you don’t have much time.
Mix 1 cup oats, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 3/4 cups shredded coconut,
1/3 cup honey, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, 1 tsp vanilla. 1 tsp cinnamon.
Refrigerate for 30 mins then roll into balls. Add flax seed or chia
seeds if desired.
L U N C H
Brussels Sprouts Salad + Tabbouleh+ Hummus + pickled beets + Homemade pita chips
Lunch on the go. If I eat lunch out I always try and order a salad. Two different salads I had recently- Mexican + Asian Cabbage Salad.
Tabbouleh + Homemade Pita Chips
I buy the Near East box of tabbouleh and cook it according to the directions. Then I add in chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, lemon juice, and mint and basil. To make the pita chips I slice whole wheat pita into strips and drizzle with olive oil. Then I add Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning. Bake at 350 degrees about 10 minutes.
D I N N E R
Tacos + Mexican Corn
I have been trying to cut back a bit on carbs because I gained a few pounds this Summer. I use Romaine lettuce as my taco shell and do seasoned ground beef, chopped tomatoes, cheese, guacamole, jalapenos and hot sauce.
Salmon + Chopped Salad + Roasted Asparagus
Salmon is one food both of my kids will eat so I cook it often. I roast my salmon with olive oil, salt and peppers and capers. Sometimes I add a little Parmesan cheese too.
Chopped Greek Salad
Quinoa + Arugula + Rotisserie Chicken + Roasted Mushrooms + Roasted Sweet Potatoes + Chopped Pistachios. Then I usually drizzle Annie’s Shitake Sesame Dressing over this. I often add goat cheese too if I have it.
Caprese Salad- this has been a go to dinner this Summer. I add in pesto and sometimes crispy prosciutto.
S N A C K S
I honestly don’t snack much.
Jalapeno string cheese- I found this at Target
handful of nuts
pickles, olives, banana peppers- I love anything pickled
