What I Ate Wednesday

I feel like it's been so long since I've done a What I Ate Wednesday! So, some fun news- last night I learned that we are going to Rocky Point on Friday! Weee! It's supposed to be like 110 degrees in Phoenix this weekend so it will be fantastic to escape the extreme heat. Now that I know I'll be running around in a bikini there are a couple things I'll tweak in my diet to get rid of any bloat-- no greek yogurt, no protein powder (haven't been using it anyway), and lots of water! No crash dieting, no extreme measures, just small tweaks to everyday clean eats :) 



Yesterday started with some coconut pancakes topped with blueberries. I used spoonfuloffit.com recipe but left out the greek yogurt. They were definitely a different texture, but they did the trick.


Post workout was my newest favorite concoction- sweet potato, egg whites, and carob chips. So random but so good. 


Lactaid cottage cheese mixed with cinnamon, stevia, and a tiny bit of cocoa powder. Sweet treat! 


Lunch was last nights leftovers- stir fry chicken with my spicy peanut sauce. I've been meaning to put this recipe up, buuuut that hasn't happened yet. 


My afternoon snack was turkey chili over broccoli slaw and avocado. All topped off with lots of Cholula. 



And dinner was boring but did the trick- grilled chicken and zucchini. 

What are some thing that you switch up once you find out about a vacation?

  1. Does protein powder play a role in bloat?

    1. If you're lactose intolerant, it can cause bloating. Whey comes from dairy foods.

    2. Most whey isolates don't contain lactose

    3. True. If dairy foods make you bloated, whey can do the same thing. I have issues with whole milk, but not whey or Greek yogurt. Just depends on your body.

  2. Why do you cut yogurt, but not cottage cheese? Why the protein powders? Would casein still cause the same bloat?

    1. See the string above, and yes casein would count :)

  3. Hey Little B-random question, but I see you post a lot of your food in plastic containers. Do you heat up your food in these containers? The reason I ask is because of BPA and cancer-related issues. I'm thinking you probably just eat them cold, but I was just curious!!

    2. Is that represented as carbs/protein/fats? Thanks for the response. Tam

  5. hi Brittany, I just want to say how I think its so gracious of you to share your healthy habits that inspire so many! Could you explain why protein powders should be avoided or maybe just for you?
    thanks

  10. Hi Brittany, love your WIAW posts! Thanks for sharing. Weird question but do you use carton egg whites or do you separate the white from real eggs? Thanks!

  11. Hi Brittany,

    I'm interested in stepping up my fitness game. I'm active and workout almost daily but not on a set program and don't have a lot of direction on where I should start. How did you get started on a lifting/ clean eating diet and learn the ropes? ould your recommend a personal trainer? Thanks!

    1. Hey Danielle,

      I would recommend checking out Jamie Easons 12 week trainer on bodybuilding.com. I think it's a great program for beginners because it really lays everything out nicely and simply :)
