Building off the first Project Comeback post, I’m back today to share a peek into my daily eating habits while I’m working on tightening things up pre-birthday. 🙂 Welcome to the latest What I Eat in a Day post!
I’m usually happy eating the same thing every day. I like to do food prep on Sundays to get ready for the week, and have my meals planned out ahead of time. Here’s an example of a typical week for me when I’m trying to eat clean and stay on track.
5am – Full water bottle
6am – Lemon water + Irish breakfast tea
9am – Breakfast! I’ve been LOVING baked oatmeal and have been playing around with recipes. Chia seeds, protein powder, ground hemp seeds… It’s a great way to introduce lots of nutrients first thing. On days when I’ll have a carb-heavy dinner I’ll have half a baked oatmeal serving plus a smoothie.
12pm – My go-to lunch lately has been a giant salad beast. I really enjoy loading up on hydrating veggies like cucumber, cabbage, and celery. My current salad dressing obsession is spicy carrot ginger, so stay tuned for a recipe!
2:30pm – An afternoon snack doubles as a pre-workout boost so I like to have a good combination of healthy fats and carbs. Coconut yogurt with almond butter or a smoothie are my favorite midday boosts.
5pm-6pm – When I’m walking home from my after work gym session I’ll usually munch on a bar. It’s an easy way to refuel on the move, just make sure that you find bars that aren’t super high in sugar. I have been obsessed with No Cow bars for YEARS and highly recommend them.
6:30pm – We like to eat on the early side which is great for me, since I don’t sleep well with a full stomach. Since I’ve been enjoying giant salads at lunchtime lately, I’ve steered clear of them for dinner. Roasted veggies or a stir fry with a plant-based burger is the usual right now.
What’s on YOUR plate right now?
