Thanks for the fun link-up Jenn!
Hi there! This is officially my first What I Ate Wednesday post and I am sure excited to show you all how I eat according to my goals and still have fun with foods. My goals currently are to reverse diet from my bikini competition and fuel my workouts. I am still pretty lean even after 4 months of reverse dieting so I am continuing to add more food (mostly carbs and fats) every 2 weeks or so.
Lunch was quick and easy as work got crazy. I think I worked through lunch and I HATE doing that! I had meal prepped this Sriracha tilapia (responsibly farm raised) on Sunday and heated up some green beans as well. On the side was a plain Quaker rice cake with 2 Tablespoons of this amazing honey-roasted almond butter that I found at Central Market. It’s sweet and salty and doesn’t have added oils or sugar (just honey) so I absolutely approve!
Meal 3 (pre-workout) was a Chocolate Brownie Quest bar warmed in the microwave and then I sandwiched 1 tablespon peanut butter in the middle. I actually got to stop home before the gym so that was a lovely moment when I got to eat my Quest bar on a real plate!
I was starving after dinner and was SO ready for dinner!! Dinner is usually Meal 4 for me out of 5 meals each day. I cooked up 1 egg and 3/4 cup egg white scrambled in coconut oil, kale and brussel sprout crunch salad mix from Trader Joe’s, and 4 oz sweet potato sprinkled with cinnamon (unpictured-sorry!!).
My final meal of the day was 1 banana with 2 tablespoons peanut butter and then a proyo bowl (protein frozen yogurt) that was a whipped protein smoothie. This had 1/2 small banana, MTS cookies and cream whey, 6 ice cubes, and a pinch of xantham gum to make it extra thick. I added one of my frozen double chocolate protein brownies crumbled on top. This always fills me up SO much and makes me fall asleep with a happy belly
So there was my Wednesday! Yes, I am a day late but I am new to this thing ok? I hope to talk more about my overall day next WIAW. I love my job and my workouts and want to highlight those as well.
What is your favorite nut butter? Brand? Type?
