Breakfast is almost always in the car, after the gym, on my way to work. So it must be quick and easy. That almost always means fruit and protein bar.
Next is a little morning snack. This is almost always more fruit. I like dried fruit because I can take it on the run. Don't have to worry about keeping it cold.
Lunch is almost always the same. I really need to work in variety here!
Raw veggies and hummus.
Super cute kitty cat shaped crackers! Vanilla and ginger snap flavor.
And a nice handful of jelly beans for the sweet tooth :)
Afternoon snack is a veggie and protein combo.
Dinner is the first meal I get to eat at home after I am done with work. I have a certain meal plan from a nutritionist that I follow. So sometimes I end up with weird combinations in order to fill all my needs.
Dessert?! Yes, please :)
I am usually not hungry for my bedtime snack, but I always eat before I go to sleep. My nutritionist tells me it is important and keeps my metabolism going through the night. I got into trouble before because my body would go into "starvation mode" when I often skipped meals. Now if i don't eat before bed I wake up feeling sickly hungry!
A nice carb/fruit/protein filled snack always hits the spot.
So that is what I eat on an average day. I eat basically the same amount of food every day, with as much variety as possible. 3 meals, 3 snacks. This is what seems to work for me!
This also made me realize that I eat a lot like a little kid! Mac and cheese, cat crackers, jelly beans... Ha :)
What was your favorite food as a kid?
Mine for sure was mac and cheese! Still love the stuff.
