I get asked a lot about what “a day of food” looks like for me. Yes, I bake a lot of yummy treats to have on hand when cravings arise, but the majority of my meals are pretty basic. I’m one of those people that thrive on routine - even in my nutritional life. Not to mention, eating things I know I can digest/tolerate well just make me feel better on a daily basis - which is what a healthy lifestyle is all about, right?
I’ve shared a few food diary posts on Instagram (and one on here previously - many moons ago), but here’s another complete day of eating for y’all!
grande iced coffee from Starbucks, unsweetened with coconut milk
4 oz extra lean ground chicken seasoned with Fresh Jax smokey southwest spice (code FITNCLEAN for a discount)
1/2 C cooked jasmine rice
1 C steamed green beans
Trader Joe’s green dragon sauce (obsesssssed)
protein shake with just Nuzest Clean Lean vanilla pea protein (code FITNCLEAN for a discount) + water
4 oz shrimp seasoned with Fresh Jax fresh bay seasoning
1/2 C cooked Banza chickpea pasta
large handful of organic baby spinach (mixed with the cooked pasta/shrimp)
few organic grape tomatoes (also mixed with the pasta/shrimp)
hot organic tea or Four Sigmatics mushroom + cocoa mix
That’s it! Nothing fancy, but super yummy and nutritious. Some days I’ll eat more or less carbs, depending on what muscle group I’m training or if I’m working at the hospital (I get HANGRY on those days!). But just like with everything else, take this food diary with a grain of salt. You have to find what works for YOUR body and what makes you feel your best.
Till next time…
