Everyone’s gotta eat, so might as well make meals healthy and delicious. Here’s what a day of eating looks like around here.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have time to run before I head into work. With the nice weather, I’m able to go around the neighborhood and get ready for work at home, including making and eating a delicious breakfast! One egg and one-egg white scrambled with a Thomas’ English muffin bagel.
Breakfast on these days is enough to sustain me until lunch, although I’ll usually eat some berries or other fruit in-between.
I work late on Thursday nights, so I always have a bigger lunch and a smaller dinner. Leftover cod tacos with a crisp veggie medley of red bell peppers, cabbage, carrots, and broccoli with salsa verde drizzled on top, brown rice on the side.
For a quick, but satisfying meal between training sessions, I opted for a caesar salad with buffalo chicken on top. I use a baby spinach and kale mixture for my base and add in chopped tomatoes for an extra dose of veggies (or is it fruits in this case?)
Because everyone needs a little sweetness in their life. Some days, when I want ice cream, I’ll have ice cream, but today all my sweet tooth needed was two of these milk chocolates to be satisfied.
When trying to lose or maintain weight loss, it’s easy to think you have to labor through boring meals that have no flavor or excitement to them. Over the years, I’ve learned that food is always going to be exciting, for me at least, and I need to stop feeling guilty about enjoying good meals. I just need to learn how to make healthier versions of them!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
