WIAW: Foods for energy


Happy Hump Day!

I debated which day this week to share my food journal from, but Monday my food was not picture worthy. SO I went with Tuesday and kept my fingers crossed I could plate something pretty for you.

I’m linking up with the WIAW crew to share my eats from yesterday!


I woke up at my usual 6am time and my coffee was all ready to go downstairs. I made Pumpkin Spice Coffee the night before, it’s such a treat. I also had 2 glasses of water to get myself hydrated.

On Sunday I had baked up some potatoes to use with lunches and breakfast so I was happy to have some potatoes with my 2 eggs & broccoli.


Around 10:15am, I was ready for a post workout snack. I went with a Chocolate Shakeology, a banana, and a serving of Sunflower seeds. I say a serving because I literally could have sat there and ate the entire bag but I made sure to seal it back up quickly. I love sunflower seeds. anyone else?


Marc and I had planned for larger dinners this week so we could use the leftovers as lunches the next day. One of our leftover meals was chicken cacciatore that I made in the crockpot. I actually think it was better the next day. I had my Chicken Cacciatore over zoodles with a sprinkle of olive oil and parmesan cheese on top. It was so healthy and delicious.


My lunch held me over for a while. In the afternoon I went over my parents to drop Ava off so that I could go train one of my in home clients. I ate an apple and a few of these energy bites in the car. Thank goodness for healthy portable snacks! My dad found this healthy snack at Costco and I’m obsessed. Of course I could make them myself, but its fun buying new products… it gives me ideas for future recipes :)


Dinner was a crockpot beef & turkey chili with veggies. I’m really digging the crockpot these days, can’t you tell? There’s something so amazing about coming home and having dinner already made!! I feel like I’m cheating. I also had corn tortilla chips (not pictured!)


After boot camp I was pretty hungry for some reason. I had a Chocolate Quest Protein bar


watermelon and a handful of cheerios I mean 2. YUM!!


It was a great day of food for me!

What was something yummy you ate this week?

Are you a fan of the crockpot?

  1. Your crockpot chili sounds delicious! I’m now going to surf through your blog in hopes of finding the recipe because I want to recreate it. We’re experiencing a bit of chill here and I could use some warm soup. :)

    • Hi Julia!

      The chili was great, and we had so much leftover which was awesome. It made for some great lunches this week and we were able to freeze a little too. If you search my blog I have 2 recipes, ones a Fail Turkey chili and the other is a paleo lean beef chili. I did a combo of these 2 this week :)

  2. I had some zucchini noodles last night! :) And I’m with you on trying new products. I LOVE trying something I haven’t had before! It definitely gets recipe inspiration going!

    • Hi Liz! I love how easy zucchini noodles are to make and sometimes I don’t want veggies so its easy to sneak some in :)
      I’m a sucker for new food products, I have to try everything!!! (as long as I approve of the ingredients!)
