Hey there! Hope your week is going well. We are in a full speed school mode and I like it! Days are packed with clubs, swim classes, cub scouts meetings, homework and goofing off in the backyard. I met up with a few moms for breakfast a few days ago and it was so refreshing to chat with adults haha! I really need to plan more outings with friends.
So it’s been a while since I’ve shared my daily eats with you. Since I always pick up good ideas reading about other health nut’s meals – here is my day of meals and snacks for ya:
A creature of habit, I am still on the gluten free rice bread toast smothered in organic peanut butter, berries, honey and unsweetened coconut flakes. It just goes so well with coffee in the morning and takes 2 minutes to make. True eye opener when your toddler wakes up at 5 am *again*.
You may notice that many of my meals are gluten free. To clarify, it’s not out of medical necessity but rather because I feel less bloated when I minimize gluten consumption. Gluten free diets are the latest fad and I don’t completely buy it that absolutely everyone should avoid the dreaded beast (unless medically necessary of course). I believe that everyone should do what feels right for their body. So if gluten doesn’t bother you, go ahead and eat that multi-grain toast.
Chocolate Vegan Shakeology with almond milk, banana, 2 handfuls of spinach, frozen strawberries and coconut flakes. This is my typical post workout meal. It replenishes electrolytes lost during a sweat sesh, provides protein, vitamins, minerals, superfoods and just the right amount of carbs to provide energy. I keep meaning to try other protein powders – and even grabbed a few samples at Sprouts – but then I go “Why?” Shakeology tastes so good and gives me everything I need. If you have any recommendations please comment below. I’d love to hear what your favorite brands are!
This simple Healthy Cobb salad hits the spot every time. I prepared turkey bacon and boiled eggs on the weekend. So all that was left to do at lunch time was to throw it together.
This meal offers a good balance of protein, healthy fats and greens and keeps me full until a mid afternoon snack. Somehow I just never get tired of this flavor and texture combo. Crunchy and creamy, salty and tart.
So this is new haha! I’ve never been a fan of broccoli, especially raw (although my 2 year old has a weird obsession over it). But after I watched my good friend munch on this snack a while back, I became intrigued.
Indeed, the combo of broccoli and hummus is a match made in heaven. I probably wouldn’t eat it any other way, but this was yummy! So to all broccoli haters – give it a try!
We are a few weeks into a new school year now and our evenings are packed with homework, sports, swimming and other activities. So dinner is definitely something I like to prepare in advance when possible. This meal right here fits the bill.
Turkey Zucchini Noodles are on a weekly rotation in this house because they are:
- kids will eat it
The meal is so light and flavorful, it hits the spot every time!
So there you go! Hope you found it useful and picked up some ideas.
