What I ate in a day
After a bit of a hiatus, I'm back to blogging! So excited to be writing about one of my loves again, which is of course food. I am, personally, always fascinated to read "what I ate in a day" posts, so I thought I'd share that today. I also know that when working with clients, sometimes the hardest transition is from "knowing what to eat" to "this is actually what I'm eating." Without further adieu, here we go.
Upon waking: coffee with almond milk and collagen *not shown. A golden kiwi and a handful of almonds right before leaving for yoga. P.S. have you tried golden kiwis? I absolutely cannot stop eating them and I don't even like regular kiwis.
When I got home from yoga, I had my smoothie. Current iteration includes almond milk, one scoop of this protein powder, blueberries, spinach and peanut butter.
Since I didn't have my smoothie until later morning, lunch ended up happening around 2:30 and I was on the go. I ate the tuna salad with a fork (tuna, apples, celery, Sir Kensington's mayo, Trader Joe's salad topper). I then ate the carrots and drank the juice in the car. Recently found this juice at Costco. Don't know that I'll repurchase. I like that the sugar is super low, but it's a little too bitter for me.
I decided we were having breakfast tacos for dinner that night! I always make a spread that includes eggs, hash browns, refried beans, homemade chorizo, cheese and various salsas and hot sauces. On my plate: Siete almond flour tortillas filled with hash browns, chorizo and salsa and a large mound of cilantro-lime slaw. I don't always use a tortilla, but the Siete ones are hard to pass up. If I wasn't having the tortillas, I would have made a mound of slaw, the hash browns, then chorizo topped with hot sauce/salsa and avocado. Why am I not eating the other stuff on the table? Eggs make me feel bleh, I'm trying to stick pretty close to no dairy right now, and I figured my carbs were covered so I left out the beans.
After dinner I ate fruit while my husband ate an overflowing bowl of homemade butter pecan ice cream we made over the weekend. "It was going bad" apparently.
Juan gave dad the side eye for his indulgence.
There you have it! Clearly, I drank lots of water that day, but I don't think I had any other nibbles. This day wasn't "perfect," but it doesn't have to be. Consistency is good enough. For reference, I aim to eat between 1500-1700 calories daily because #goals. I'm currently trying to eat as close to 800 grams of fruit and veggies daily (not easy). I've noticed how much better I feel when I make that a priority. Otherwise, staying away from dairy, gluten, and most soy. Hope you find this helpful. Please let me know what questions you have. :)
