A day in the life

It's official! I have a published magazine article! Yay! You can find a few of my tips on eating clean while at work in the November issue of FitnessX magazine or at

While we are on the topic of eating clean, I have been asked a lot lately to share what a typical day looks like for me, so I went ahead and took pictures of everything I ate yesterday so that you could have a visual. I'm totally one of those people that could make chicken, veggies, and rice on Sunday, stick it into 7 tupperware containers and be set, but B is not. He needs variety in order to stay on track (or as on track as "on track" is for him) so I typically make at least 5 different meals every week. My breakfasts are usually pretty constant; either oats or eggs with toast, I always have cottage cheese for one of my meals, and always Casein before bed. Anyway, here is what yesterday looked like. 

Breakfast was a veggie and egg white scramble with two pieces of Ezekiel bread (I ate one before I remembered to take a picture, oopsie.) After breakfast I hit the gym, then came home and had my shake and 1/2 of a banana (no picture, double oopsie). 

At around 9:30 I had1/2 cup cottage cheese with a tablespoon of pumpkin, 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder and cinnamon, along with one serving of almonds (about 20). 

Between 12 and 12:30 I had spicy Tilapia with green beans and tomato and 4 oz of cinnamon protein yams. 

Around 3 I had a turkey burger with lettuce and tomato and asparagus. [and low sugar ketchup and mustard of course]

Dinner is typically more exciting, but I had class last night so I just heated up some no oat turkey meatloaf and sliced up 1/2 a zucchini and dipped it in hummus. By the way, raw zucchini and hummus is my new favorite thing.... I didn't think I'd like it raw but it's delicious! 

Lastly, right before bed I had my favorite meal of the day- Casein pudding. Like I said, I have my staple items, and then meals that change daily and I have found that this works well for me. I plugged this all into myfitnesspal and it was a little over 1500 calories and a 35/40/25 which is exactly what I'm aiming for. I'm so glad I chose to stop the LiveFit trainer and return to the principals of phase 2... I can see my strength returning and my tummy and brain are much happier with more carbs :) 


  1. This is great, thanks for doing it! Whenever you want to post a daily meal, I for one will always be greatful! I am so not creative and need the help of others! :)

  2. I'm happy to do it and will try to do it more often :)

  3. Thanks so much...I love your blog and love to get different ideas..what is on your Ezekiel bread? And what type of seasoning on your tilapia? :)

  4. A little bit of coconut oil probably less than a tsp and lots of cinnamon with a dash of Truvia. I used my spicy salmon marinade on the tilapia and it was great! (Check recipe tab and look for salmon marinade). Thanks for reading! :)

  5. how do you make your protein yams? just protein powder?

  6. Yep! Just add about 1/2 scoop of vanilla PP for every medium yam. I also add lots of cinnamon :)

  7. What are your macros? 35-carbs, 40- protien, 25- fat?

  8. Yep! I waiver between that and the standard 40/40/20
