I always think it’s fun to see what people eat in a day. It gives me great ideas and overall interesting to see how or what kind of meals people put together. With that being said I thought it would be a good idea to share my first “What I eat in a day” type of post like I see on youtube.
Now for a disclaimer. I don’t normally cook every day, but last Wednesday I had the opportunity and I took full advantage of it.
I started my morning at around 4:30 AM with some avocado toast with everything spice (made from scratch) before I went to my barre class. I’ve started to try to eat before my workouts for more energy and to not starve to death afterward.
After having an amazing workout at barre, I refueled with a beet smoothie around 7 AM. I know I start my days early, but surprisingly it gives me way more energy than sleeping in. That is especially true when I workout to begin my morning.
When it hit noon I decided to go ahead and make lunch. I enjoyed a delicious pre-made quinoa patty on multigrain bread. I like gluten-free bread because it’s light and I feel that it doesn’t bother my digestive system as much. I added mustard, ketchup, and kosher cheese. Talk about delicious!
Around 2 PM that day I wanted a snack. I kept it simple with your basic banana and I made another smoothie because the beet one wasn’t that great. I don’t really care too much for earthy smoothies and should have put more fruit in it. The second smoothie I made was a mix of frozen banana, kale, and frozen dark cherries with rice milk. It was yummy!
At 5 or 6 PM I went ahead and made dinner. That included grilled chicken, mashed sweet potatoes and the best vegetable in the world, brussels sprouts. As a side tangent, I think everyone should invest in a George Foreman grill. It cooks the meat fully and fast while keeping it flavorful and juicy. A trick for the brussels sprouts is to put salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar on them for flavor. Roast them for about 12 minutes at 425℉.
I know you shouldn’t eat after 6 PM, but I couldn’t resist. I had to get some french vanilla ice cream that I got from Whole Foods. It was definitely worth indulging in.
Below are photos of how everything turned out:
