I’ve been good getting back on track today! And the fact that I’m PMSing like a crazy person, that’s saying something.
So far I’ve had an apple, some cashews and almonds, a piece of pb toast, a cup of coffee, and a plain hamburger patty with avocado and tomato wrapped in lettuce. It doesn’t sound like much, but I’m so full. All the healthy fats, protein, and fiber has kept my tummy full all day.
Time to enjoy a chocolate coconut water and stress out over my next semester schedule in the works.
nighttime snack of raspberry green tea and apple chips :)
I am so mad at myself for not taking a picture of my breakfast. It was a thing of beauty.
I toasted two small slices (like 2x3 little rounds) of sourdough bread, made an egg over medium, and a couple slices of turkey bacon and made a sandwich.
It was basically the best breakfast I’ve had in a while. I’m not even exaggerating when I say for the last three weeks I’ve had nothing but a greek yogurt and pb toast for breakfast everyday. This tasted so, so yummy. Oh and morning coffee, too, of course.
For about two weeks now I’ve had the exact same breakfast everyday: a Fage greek yogurt and a piece of ezekiel peanut butter toast. It’s like a perfect combination of protein, sweet, and salty.
This is easily one of the best things I’ve ever made. It’s mahi mahi fish with a mango salsa. I just got store bought salsa (I didn’t have the ingredients for homemade) and added a few extra things (olive oil, more garlic, avocado, and mango) and holy balls it is amazing.
Lunch: quinoa boiled in chicken broth with steamed in chicken broth veggies (onion, garlic, carrot, broccoli, and red bell pepper) with chicken breast and a 1/4 an avocado for butteryness. Oh, and did I mention tons of sriracha? YUM!
A salad of spinach, carrots, broccoli, chicken, hard boiled egg white, and half an avocado with a little salsa as dressing. Yummmm!
I would’ve taken a picture but I ate it too fast.
Breakfast: one whole egg, three egg whites, garlic, onion, broccoli, tomato, spinach, ground turkey, salsa, and a little chili powder cooked in a little olive oil.
I call this the “I Wanted An Omelette But I Like Too Many Toppings So Now It’s A Scrambled Eggs Mashup!”
Awesome breakfast; only about 200 cals and it’s so filling and delicious!
I just made a bomb smoothie. It’s a little guava juice, a little acai juice, chobani greek yogurt, pineapple, mango, blueberry, banana, strawberry, coconut, a little vanilla protein powder, and psyllium husk. So good, so healthy, and so full of protein!
Okay guys, this is seriously DELICIOUS. My favorite yet!
It’s sautéed cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli, onion, garlic, carrot and zucchini. I sautéed them with a bit of olive oil, chicken broth, and a bunch of sriracha! Then I added quinoa (also boiled in chicken broth) and ground turkey!
-fresh strawberries and grapes
-sautéed veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, onion, asparagus, and garlic) with white meat rotisserie chicken that my dad made yesterday all slathered with sriracha!
An egg over medium on a piece of Ezekiel bread with avocado instead of butter. And don’t forget the coffee!
So I’ve been dying to try Shirataki noodles. If you don’t know what they are, they’re low calorie (the kind I bought were 40 calories for a whole bag, but some are 0 cal!) noodles. I used Cassey’s recipe as guidelines, but I had to do a lot of improvising with the ingredients because we didn’t have everything she did. Cassey used whole veggies (I used half and couldn’t finish my bowl!) and used different veggies as well, but mine came out DELICIOUS too! What’s great about this recipe is you can use whatever veggies you like and make it entirely your own! So here it is!
- 1/2 avocado
- sprinkle of lemon juice
- a few basil leaves
- salt, pepper, and paprika to taste
- 1 zucchini, sliced
- half an onion, chopped (I used a red)
- 1 tomatoe, chopped
- 1/2 cup of broccoli
- a sprinkle of garlic powder (or a clove of garlic)
- little bit of extra virgin olive oil to coat pan
- a sprinkle of salt
- sriracha to taste (I like it spicy!)
- 1 pack of shirataki noodles
1. Chop up your veggies. Sautee all of the veggies except for the tomatoes with a bit of extra virgin olive oil on a pan on high heat. Add sriracha if desired. Once the veggies look cooked and the onions are slightly opaque, add in the tomatoes and garlic powder or clove. Salt and pepper to taste.
2. To make the sauce, add the half an avocado, lemon juice, and basil into a food processor. Blend until creamy. Then add the salt, paprika/red pepper flakes, and pepper to taste.
3. Wash your shirataki noodles thoroughly in warm water. Then pat try on a paper towel. Right before serving, heat them up in the microwave for one minute.
4. Stir avocado sauce into noodles until covered. Transfer onto a plate and add sauteed veggies.
5. Enjoy the absolute deliciousness you just made.
It was so filling and healthy! Get creative and make it your own! I hope you guys enjoy this awesome recipe!
Mmmm what a good looking breakfast!
I’m having a bagel thin with an over medium egg and a Fage Greek Yogurt with coffee!
Today my roomie and I did P90x Yoga. It must’ve got my metabolism going crazy cause I had my little protein shake, ate a yummy dinner of rice, chicken, and steamed veggies, then an hour later had a freaking amazing smoothie (pineapple, berries, yogurt, grapes). Then I let myself have a mini bag of Goldfish that have been calling my name for days now. Yummers!
I was too lazy to count calories today, so I didn’t. Like usual, I did proper portions and made healthy choices… except the Goldfish, one See’s candy, and the few Junior Mints I had. :) I think I need a shirt that says “I workout because I really, really, really love food.”
edit: so I added up my calories because I was kind of curious on how well I did with no guidance of my counting and based just upon making good choices and portioning. Right now I’m literally RIGHT below where I want to be, and my little bag of popcorn tonight will put me right on the mark. :) It makes me happy that I’m finally not having to rely on counting calories to stay in my goal zone. yay!
