Hello loves – Happy Tuesday!
I often get asked about what I eat in a day or how I keep I stay healthy work. First off, each body is different and has different nutritional needs. I’ve personally learned so much about food throughout the years that today I pretty much know what I need to keep my body energized and healthy.
It’s a little hard to tell what my day/meals will look like since I don’t follow any diets/or count macros ( I’m just avoiding red meat lately). And even though my meals change daily, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I eat in a regular week/work day.
First things first: WATER! I always drink I big cup of water first thing in the morning. Then while I get ready I think about breakfast!
This a typical breakfast for me and one of my FAVORITE combos. Because you can’t go wrong with avocado + eggs. Am I right? I always try to combine whole grains, fruits, protein and healthy fats.
When I do eat a morning snack, it’s normally fruits + nuts/nut butter. My favorite combinations are apple, banana or dried fruits + Peanut/Almond Butter.
My lunches are usually very simple and SUPER easy to prepare (sometimes I even cook lunch in the morning before work). I normally try to combine good carbs (sweet potatoes is my go-to), veggies, a source of protein and sometimes, if I haven’t had avocado for breakfast, I add some to my lunch too!
Because I’ve been working out after work, my mid-afternoon snacks are also my pre-workouts. My favorites snacks are: PB+Banana+Honey Toast and Avocado-Egg Toast? What is your favorite?
Dinner is definitely my lightest meal. Most of the time I will have a low-carb dinner packed with veggies, salad and lean protein. My favorite veggies are Brussel sprouts, asparagus, brocolli and spinach.
Thank you for reading my post. Hope you enjoyed seeing my daily “food routine” at work!
What are your favorite meals and snacks? I love getting new ideas!
