Feed Me! && a Giveaway!

The best second best day of the week is here!


Haha

We all know Friday is the favorite, Wednesday is the second and well, nobody likes Monday.

Poor Mondays, nope don't feel sorry for them!

Let's talk food.

Mhmmmmm food.

So I like to eat and that's no lie. 


Any one else watch food network at the gym? LOL


These all describe me sadly...

Yeah my food choices have greatly changed.

There was a point over a year ago when I could polish off a cheesecake sample by myself and still want more, it was ridiculous and unhealthy.

Now I still like my foods and many of you are asking how I'm eating these days.

I'm always willing to try new meals, diet plans, ect. I've done carb cycling, counting calories, no wheats, no dairy, meals from a nutritionists and so on.

For the month of December I followed a meal plan from my trainer that went with my lifting program, which was great while I was lifting like that and all. But now I've shifted into half marathon training and I've taking my eating back to my kind of make shift plan that's worked for me in the past. I've also adapted it to include things I've learned from my trainer and so on.

I'm not COUNTING calories, but I'm AWARE of how many calories I'm taking in.

I still do meal prep. I will always do this because I like the convince of having healthy foods at my fingertips just as easily as the junk food can be.

Now here are some examples of what my meals are consisting of:

Breakfast:

Old fashion oats with water with a piece of fruit

Serving of Chex or Special K cereal mixed with a 100 calorie Greek yogurt 

2 Special K waffles with sugar free syrup and scrambled egg whites

Lunch: 

Healthy choice soup or the vegan friendly soup with Special K chips

A romain lettuce salad with fat free cottage cheese, sunflower seeds, turkey, onions and bell pepper.

Rice and veggies sometimes with chicken

Dinner: 

Low carb tortilla pizza with fat free cheese And turkey pepperoni 

Taco salad with ground turkey, no sour cream 

Chicken and sweet potato fries

Snacks:

Mixed fresh fruit

Carrots and pickles

Natural raw almonds and raisins

Special K bar

Quest nutrition bar

I also substitute meals with protein shakes or smoothies.

I eat in this pattern, breakfast- 3hours later snack- 3 hours lunch - 3 hours snack- 3 hours dinner.
When I'm on the go go go I will grab a quest bar for a good filling and nutrient packed tide over.

I still will eat "junk food" but I do so in complete moderation or I find healthy substitutions for recipes to make them more friendly to my lifestyle.

What are some of your favorite healthy recipes?

Now whose ready for a giveaway!!!!!

No this isn't the big one I've been warning you about, that one will be up on Monday and I promise you, you don't want to miss out.

  39. I just looked this Cyclone cup up earlier because of your post the other day. I'm definitely interested in trying it out. I'm trying to keep quick meals with me at all times like quest bars and protein powder for on the go so I don't cruise by Taco Bell. I've been shaking my protein shakes in my metal water bottle but at the end it's still pretty thick.

    Thanks for me meal ideas. I'm really getting into prepping and am always looking for ideas.
