Today I am sharing with you my food journal from Monday. I chose Monday because after the weekend I am always focused and I try to keep my meals clean, simple, & nutritious. I apologize in advance for some bad pictures.
I am linking up with Peas and Crayons for another WIAW Post
I wake up at 6am on Mondays and one of the first things I do is chug a tall glass of water. I usually have maybe a 1/2 cup of coffee (that’s my typical daily amount) and quickly post on my blog.
Breakfast is shortly after. I had 1 egg, 1 cup egg whites sautéed in 1 tsp olive oil with 1 1/2 cups of spinach & baby kale with some potato hash browns. If you haven’t checked my blog before this is a very typical breakfast by me I wish I could eat this all day.
After Group Power I always need a substantial snack. When I leave that class I am usually starving within 45 minutes. I had a coffee protein shake, a banana, and a Coconut Chia bar from Health Warrior.
I’m pretty punctual with my eating on Mondays. I taught my senior fitness class from 1030-1130 and Lunch was followed shortly after around 1230. I had prepped some baked chicken & herbs on Sunday so I threw that over a big salad with mixed greens, orange pepper, tomatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, avocado & balsamic dressing. It was yummy. I also had a Joseph’s Pita with it and an orange.
I haven’t had a fruit parfait in a while and I was craving one. I chose a Dannon Oikos greek yogurt with strawberries & granola. I was so happy to find that Dannon greek yogurt that has NO added Sugar & NO artificial sweeteners. It was a good find, I hate buying yogurts that have unnecessary sugar but sometimes the plain greek just doesn’t do it for me!
This picture was terrible of my dinner but it was yummy!! I had Eggplant Parm (that a friend made for us) with Baked Chicken & Sauce smothering the top so you can’t see anything! I also had some steamed broccoli (a few pieces are missing from that picture) I need to learn to take pictures before my hunger takes over!!
It seems like my hunger is non stop on Mondays because the first 1/2 of my day is very active so I ended my night with a Chocolate Shakeology & peanut butter which filled me right up!
I am now off to teach Group power. My legs are very sore & tired so this should be interesting
Whats your favorite morning snack?
Please share something yummy you ate yesterday?
