What I Ate Wednesday!

I know I say this every time I come back from vacation, but it feels so great to be back in my routine. I do have to say I did a great job eating clean while we were away even though we ate out often, but I will admit there were quite a few adult beverages consumed... as there should be! :) You only get engaged once (hopefully!) !
I have noticed since my photo shoot when I really leaned out, it has been much easier to stay lean. James Wilson's kick butt high intensity workout program probably has something to do with it too, but I'm eating lots of food and a good amount of carbs and still feel great and ready for the beach! Speaking of the beach, since I will be there this weekend I'm making sure to be 100% this week with nutrition and workouts... here's what my eats looked like yesterday. 



Breakfast was the usual. 4 egg whites scrambled with veggies and cinnamon toast



Meal 2 was cottage cheese and a brown rice cake with all natural peanut butter. Have I mentioned I'm newly obsessed with brown rice cakes? Well, I am.


Meal 3 was the usual too. Turkey zucchini burger and a yam with tiny bit of coconut oil and cinnamon. Never gets old! 


I switched up my beef and broccoli recipe just a little and did half steak half chicken and it turned out amazing!


Dinner was tilapia seasoned with Ms. Dash fiesta lime and a side of veggies. I was extremely tempted to make myself some of the fish tacos that B had for dinner, but then I though of myself in a bikini this weekend and opted for the veggie carbs instead. I will be having fish tacos for lunch today though! 


Casein pudding and 1 tbsp of peanut butter right before bed. 

I think I'm all caught up on emails and such, but I want to try to record a vlog for you guys in the next couple of days, so if there are any burning questions you have or anything you want covered please let me know by leaving a comment! Have an awesome Wednesday!

  4. Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime is the best! Their lemon pepper is also really great and I don't usually like lemon pepper blends.

  5. Hi Brittany! I have been following your blog for a little while now and I love it(and you)! I am still pretty new to eating clean and lifting weights, I just started week 5 of the live fit trainer. But I just found rice cakes too and I love them! They're awesome! I noticed you eat yours with cottage cheese but my stomach is really sensitive to dairy so I don't know what protein to eat with them. Any ideas?? Anyways, I really enjoy reading your blog, it has helped me and inspired me so much. Congrats on the engagement!

    1. This is actually Lactaid brand so there is no dairy/lactose in it :)

  6. Brittany, Do you bake your tilapia? I do not eat meat but I do have fish most days so I am always looking for new ways to cook it. Also, please please please post new workout videos and blogs! I love trying your workouts!

    1. Sometimes I do, but usually I just throw it on the grill! Lemon and pepper for seasoning or some Ms. Dash :)

  8. I recently decided to start eating like you-- 5 mini meals versus 3 big meals and 2 small snacks. I know it sounds like basically the same thing, but for me it isn't really, and I've gotta say that I love this style of eating! I'm never hungry anymore, and I'm always looking forward to my next meal. It's also gotten me to up my veggie intake, and I'm just feeling so much better these days! :D

  9. I tried the casein pudding and it didn't turn out that great. I need to try it again because it seems like it's a staple in your diet!
