WIAW: Turkey Chili for the win


Happy Hump Day!! The weather is looking great for today and I’m already looking forward to a late afternoon walk with Cooper and Ava.

I am linking up with the What I Ate Wednesday crew to share with you my food journal from Monday.


It was a healthy & clean day of eating for me!

My day started off with a little coffee and a tall glass of water. For breakfast I whipped together 2 eggs, sauteed spinach with olive oil, and sliced potatoes with sea salt. We baked a few extra potatoes on Sunday so that I could use them with breakfast and I’m so glad we did. It was a filling meal.


After teaching a sweaty group power class, I quickly refueled with a vanilla protein shake, a banana and oatmeal with strawberries & PB2.

For lunch I had a salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, grilled chicken and balsamic dressing. The cucumbers & peppers aren’t pictured because I added them after the picture, oops. I also had a peach and some cashews.

After a couple hours of coaching work on the computer I opted for a Chocolate Shakeology. It’s something easy to whip up without having to think and I didn’t have much time to think of anything to eat once Ava got up from her long afternoon nap.  I also snacked on a few of Ava’s triscuit crackers that she was eating ;)


Marc and I were looking for something different to eat for dinner. We have been doing so much grilling that I wanted to change things up a bit. I made a big turkey chili with beans & lots of veggies in the crockpot, and man I’m glad I did. I love chili. 1. it’s super easy to make 2. it creates lots of leftovers and 3. it’s so tasty. I served my chili over brown rice and had some avocado as well. There were so many flavors in that one bowl.

Before dinner we took a walk to get Cooper some fresh air. It was lovely and there was a great breeze which felt amazing.


After dinner we hung out, I gave Ava a bath, red her a bedtime story and then she went to bed.

Because I love night snacks, Marc and I each had a couple Chocolate Fudgy Shakeology bites and tons of blueberries. Yum!

Do you grill a lot during this summertime?

  1. That chili looks fantastic! I always look forward to it getting a little cooler so I can make stuff like that. It’s just SO hot during the day right now! I need to dig out the crockpot soon though!

    • It was SO good! I used the crockpot which I always forget about in the summertime. I’m definitely going to use it more because you can create some delicious meals without turning on the stove :)
