Today I am bringing you What I Eat in a Day! If you know me, then you know that I am VERY passionate about health/nutrition. One of my favorite sayings is….”Abs are made in the kitchen!” All of your power while you are working out, comes from what you fuel your body with. There is a HUGE difference between eating for pleasure, and eating for what your body needs! But….. that doesn’t mean that you can’t eat. A lot of people get the wrong idea about “dieting”. It’s all about WHAT you eat! I have you covered with breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and DESSERT!! Yes……. you CAN eat dessert!! So without further ado, LES GO!!
BREAKFAST: (Apple Nachos)
These are easily a favorite of mine; not only for breakfast, but for a snack as well! They are super quick and easy, and can be made ahead of time! You can also mix the toppings up and get creative with it!
- Granny Smith Apple
- Fresh Ground Peanut Butter (not the processed stuff)
- Chia Seeds
- Raisins ( opt. Cranberries)
It is basically as easy as spreading the peanut butter, and throwing the toppings on. It literally takes 5 mins! And it’s SO good!!
LUNCH: (Taco Bowls)
So…….If you are a Chipotle fan, than you definitely recognize this one! Our family uses this recipe all the time! This is a great option for meal prep as well. Just toss everything into bowl and stack em up! Skip the rice for a low carb option! Also skip the ground turkey for a vegetarian option. An exact recipe isn’t really necessary with this meal, but start off with small portions because it is quite filling.
- Ground Turkey
- Brown Rice
- Black Beans
- Purple Onions
We lay everything out, and go to town! Try this….and you will LOVE it!
For snacks I usually stick to humus and veggies, or almonds + pistachios! Great snacks that aren’t from a package…..STAY AWAY FROM THE CHIPS! 😉
DINNER: (Cauliflower Fried Rice)
Yeah…. I just said that!!!! You guys, GO MAKE THIS NOW! It will knock your socks off! We usually serve this as a one dish meal. And it will fill you up!
CAULIFLOWER FRIED RICE
- 1 head of Cauliflower
- 3 Carrots
- 1/2 Onion
- 4 Green Onions
- 4 Eggs
- 1/2 cup of Frozen Peas
- 2 cups of Cooked Chicken
- 2.5 tbsp. of Grapeseed oil, (or olive oil) divided
- 3 tbsp. of Braggs Liquid Aminos (or Soy sauce)
- 1 tbsp. of Sesame Oil
- 1 tbsp. of Minced Garlic
So for starters, you want to blend the cauliflower in the food processor, dice the carrots, chop the onions, chop the green onions, cook the eggs, and cook the chicken with the soy sauce. Next, you want to sauté the carrots, and onion with the Grapeseed oil.
Then add the peas, green onions, and minced garlic! Cook for about 2 minutes, until the green onions soften. Then dump the cauliflower into it (along with the liquid aminos), and cook for 2-3 minutes! Next add the cooked chicken, and cooked egg, back into the mixture! Serve it up, and enjoy it!!
DESSERT: (Kind Bars)
These are my go to dessert options! I usually will eat one of these when I get a sweet tooth! My favorites are the Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt, and the Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond. Not only are these low in sugar, but they also have a good amount of protein! And I love them probably more than I should!
I hope you guys enjoyed seeing what I eat in a day! This obviously varies on a daily basis, but I try and keep it low-carb, and unprocessed. But….. I won’t say no to BBQ on the weekends! 🙂
See you guys next week… HINT: You will LOVE the video next week, so subscribe so you don’t miss it!!
