Today was nothing shy of busy! I began my day at 4:45am with 20 mins of HIIT cardio in my PJs, went to work, stopped by the chiropractor for a much needed adjustment, and then got in a good chest workout at the gym before heading home. Throughout the day I relied on 6 healthy meals to help keep my energy up.
Here’s a look at #WhatIAteWednesday
Meal 1: Egg & veggie scramble (1 whole egg, 3/4 cup egg white, diced red & green bell pepper, chopped onion and fat-free cheddar cheese), Thompson whole-wheat Bagel Thin with low-fat cream cheese, and coffee.
Meal 2: 3 pumpkin protein muffins with a second cup of coffee. I modify Jamie Eason’s recipe to bump up the protein with more egg whites and protein powder. These make a great mid-morning snack at work.
Meal 3: One variation of “Crack Slaw”- Bagged coleslaw mix tossed with a dressing of PB2, low-sodium soy sauce and sriracha. I added diced grilled chicken breast and tossed on a handful of roasted peanuts.
Meal 4: On the way out of my office, diced chicken wrapped in an Ole Extreme Wellness high fiber tortilla.
Meal 5: My typical post-workout meal of cooked 5-grain hot cereal mixed with vanilla protein powder and sugar-free Walden Farms pancake syrup. As usual, eaten in my car after my gym workout.
Meal 6: Back at home I ate dinner consisting of more chicken, baked sweet potato, steamed asparagus and sliced avocado.
