I always try to focus on clean eating but this week I am trying to add in new meals to mix it up. Sometimes I get bored with my food choices. Although I like simple foods I do wish I mixed up my food choices more often.
I guess my reasoning for simple foods is having a toddler around. I don’t have too much time to throw together meals that take longer then 30 minutes! So on Monday afternoon I mixed up my afternoon snack… check it out below.
I am linking up with Jenn for another WIAW post.
I woke up at my normal time Monday morning at 6am. This time I struggled to get out of bed. Usually I pop right up. The lack of sleep from the weekend really caught up to me. I splashed my face with cold water and drank a 1/2 cup of coffee and before I knew it I was ready to go. My breakfast was 2 eggs over easy served over sautéed spinach with some toast on the side.
After my 730am Group Power class I had oatmeal with peanut butter
and a Coffee Protein Shake w/ a banana
For Lunch I had leftovers, chicken marsala with zucchini & squash plus some roasted potatoes & an orange.
In the afternoon I did a quick insanity workout and opted to refuel with a bowl of Lentil Soup and some plantain chips.
This was totally a new afternoon snack for me it was a great change and I loveddd it. Not only was the lentil soup filling but it was also nutritious and tasty. The plantain chips gave me my salt fix that I needed!
Marc made delicious roasted chicken on Sunday so I had a piece of that for dinner with some green beans and sweet potato. The chicken was slow cooked so it literally melted in my mouth!! Yum.
I always like a night time snack to end the night. I’m usually hungry around 8pm so I made a quick Chocolate Shakeology shake and drank it while I watched some TV to end my night.
What’s your go to afternoon snack?
Do you tend to eat similar foods every day?
