What I Ate Wednesday

I'm so excited that I have real food to post for my what I ate Wednesday this week! Not that chicken and asparagus isn't real food, it's just not real exciting! Like I mentioned on Monday, I'm still keeping my carbs on the lower end, having them mostly with breakfast which is my pre-workout and in my post workout shake, then relying on veggie carbs for the rest of the day. I've also increased my fats a bit so my split is more 30-40-30 carbs, protein, fat. My calorie goal is around1500, then I'll bump that down to 1300 on rest days. 




Meal 1: 5 egg whites scrambled with spinach, onions, and jalapeno and 2 slices Ezekiel Toast. Low sugar ketchup for dipping!
PWO: Shake with Only Protein. I love this stuff! Has a different taste to it, but so good in shakes. 
Meal 2: 5 hard boiled eggs (whites only) and 1 oz almonds
Meal 3: Turkey Zucchini burger with lettuce, tomato, and avocado 
Meal 4: Spinach salad topped with salsa chicken and a dab ( I don't think I like that word) of greek yogurt. 
Meal 5: Spaghetti squash with turkey sauce and veggies. 
Meal 6: Casein pudding- not pictured. 
I may or may not have also stuck my finger in the peanut butter jar when I got home from work. Ooopsie! 

There you have it friends. This came in around 1475 calories, and I felt nice and full all day. Enjoy your Wednesday and I'll see you back here tomorrow for an absolutely amazing crock pot recipe!!

    2. What do you think is a better option before bed, egg whites or casien? I also have to say, I cant do the egg whites without a little low sugar ketchup on it..which has 5 carbs in a TBSP. In my area I cannot get a decent brand of FF cottage cheese and have this funny little feeling my last meal is hindering my results. I would love just to have nothing from dinner as my stomach is flat and lean in the AM but i can't make it through the night without hunger pangs! What are your thoughts? I just noticed a few posts back you said you weren't doing casien anymore as it doesnt break down as well as real food. Any help would be appreciated. X

    3. They are both good options-- have you tried the frozen egg whites? You just use the pastuerized egg whites and mix in cocoa, cinnamon, any extracts you like and maybe a little truvia and then freeze it. Just a different way to eat them and it tastes like a dessert. I wouldn't skip the last meal.. you'll only be hurting yourself in the end.

  6. Hi what made you change your macros from 40/40/20 and reduce your cals so much

    1. I'm trying to stay lean throughout the summer-- I'll be maintaining instead of trying to build. When you're building you need a surplus of calories which is why I was eating more in the 1800 range, but to maintain I don't need that much.

  7. I remember when j were eating 1800-2000 cals!

    1. Right, but that was to build muscle. That's not my goal right now, the goal is to maintain. You have to eat according to your goals and activity level.

  12. Nice to actually SEE your portion sizes. Eating clean and exercising, impatient for results had me wondering about my diet. This helpes me know I'm on track :)

  13. I LOVE and I mean totally addicted in LOVE with spaghetti squash. It is sooo good! I would rather have spaghetti squash any day over the shirataki noodle stuff or regular pasta. Plus I can have a whole bunch too :0). Do you by any chance use coconut oil? If so what is a good portion amount for a single serving?

    1. I spread a tiny bit of coconut oil on my toast in the morning or I use as directed in recipes. I think serving size for most oils is around 1 tbsp but I would depend on your macros too.

  14. I really need to start prepping more food. I don't take in enough calories because I'm too lazy to prep, so I just don't eat very much! 5 small meals, but not enough substance. Thanks for posting.. I'm off to cook now!!! :)

  15. Thanx for sharing - this is super helpful in planning my meals for the day! And I'm REALLY glad to know I'm not the only one who has accidental run-ins with the peanut butter jar ;)

  16. I am so glad you post your food and calories because I weigh a lot more than you and I eat about the same amount of calories as you. I can now see why I am not losing pounds and my muscles are not building up like I want them too.

    I need to eat A LOT more!!!!
