After using Instagram’s “question” feature on Stories, I discovered that a lot of you wanted me to bring back my What I Ate Today series!
In this series, I basically show you what I ate the day before the post goes live. So, for today’s post, it’s what I ate yesterday, Tuesday, August 7th, 2018.
Riveting, I know – but it’s my most requested type of post, so here goes!
What I Ate Today
Lately, I’ve been on a Perfectbar kick – it’s just SO filling and energizes me before a morning workout (I’ve been trying to stay consistent with an 8:30am workout time during the week.) I’m really into the Coconut Peanut Butter, Almond Coconut, and Blueberry Cashew. I have HALF of a bar before my workout and then when I’m done working out, showered and dressed for the day, I have the other half.
And of course, I always drink coffee in the morning! One cup a day!
Around 10:30am, I’ll make a smoothie. Just something to hold me over before lunch. My green smoothies lately are:
- 2 big handfuls of spinach
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1 tablespoon Vital Proteins Marine Collagen
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
I top them with about a serving of some Smart Bran or Purely Elizabeth granola. Yesterday I had it with granola – here’s a photo of me about a month ago with the EXACT same smoothie (I forgot to take a photo of my smoothie yesterday.)
Today’s lunch was leftovers from Luca’s uneaten meals, haha. I dumped everything into a skillet, cooked it until warm, and then drizzled with some tahini. This bowl meal consisted of broccoli, sweet potato, chicken sausage, lentils, and that tahini drizzle (it’s just literally creamy tahini.)
GGs! If you guys read my post on fiber, you know I’ve been on a fiber kick lately (it’s helped me slim down a bit and feel fuller and more energized, longer.) I topped four of these GG crackers with almond butter and some raspberries (more fiber!)
I made a vegetarian version of the Bell Pepper Taco Skillet from my second cookbook, Inspiralize Everything! Topped it with avocado!
I’m really focusing on my diet lately, so trying my hardest to avoid sugar (my chocolate cravings are REAL) and any processed snacks. So, I had a bowl of grapes (about 1 cup)!
And that’s what I ate yesterday, August 7th! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see these every Wednesday, if they’re helpful for those of you looking for daily eats inspiration!
