I loved hearing all your favorite cheat meals yesterday! I'm not usually a big splurger when it comes to eating 'off' foods, but I know for some people it helps keep you on track in the long run, so whatever works for you! I'm definitely back on track after the Taco Bell incident, here's what my day is currently looking like...
Can you believe it!? No egg whites, yams, and sausage! Trust me, if I could have I would have but I ended up having to send B to the store on Monday afternoon since we didn't make it over the weekend and I forgot to put yams on his list. So, I went with an old favorite- carton egg whites and oats with blueberries and almondmilk. I also threw in about a half scoop of MRM Rich Vanilla Protein Powder for some more flavor.
It was just what I needed to power me through my back day, and to be honest I might take a break from my usual breakfast because I felt like I had a lot more energy with the oats in me versus the yams. Anyway, I had a pumpkin protein shake after the gym with 1/2 a banana, PP, pumpkin, cinnamon, and Stevia.
I was starrrrving about an hour after my workout so I grabbed my morning snack a little earlier than I typically do... I just couldn't wait! Greek yogurt mixed with cinnamon, stevia, and PP and then a piece of Ezekiel toast with sugar free jelly.
Still on my buffalo chicken kick, so I had that with spinach and these awesome sweet potato tortilla chips on the side. The brand of the chips is "Way Better" and they're made with Sunflower Oil, Stone Ground Corn, Sweet Potato, Organic Quinoa, Chia Seeds and Salt. Pretty amazing huh? They also have a ton of different flavors and I've loved every one that I've tried!
Then I just had to eat the last of my black bean brownies and added some peanut butter on top, for good measure :)
A random snack of chicken, hummus, and a side salad.
And finally some chili with almond cheese for dinner. I actually browned the meat and put all the ingredients in the crock pot while I was home for lunch and just left it on low all afternoon. The flavor was so much better than when I just make it on the stove top!
Have you ever noticed making one small change in your nutrition making a big difference in the gym?
