Some New Foods on WIAW!

The best part about wrapping up a photo shoot is getting to eat all the fun food you've cut out! For now, I'm just looking to find my point of maintenance so that I can stay lean while still working on adding shape to my leg/glutes and shoulders. Sometimes it's hard to find that sweet spot, but I'll just take it week by week and adjust my macros as needed. 


I'm still hooked on my sweet potato breakfast- this version is an egg white scramble with zucchini, onion, jalapeƱo and a side of chicken sausage. 


Like I mentioned on Instagram, I hit the gym for leg day 2 of 3 and focused on lighter weights and higher volume. I'm doing 2 lighter days like yesterday and one heavy day and I'm finally seeing progress in my glutes. I'm taking a similar approach with shoulders, doing 2 shoulder days a week one light and one heavy. 


I was cravings something sweet after my workout so pancakes it was. These are just 1/2 cup oats, 1 scoop MRM vanilla whey, 2 egg whites, cinnamon and stevia. Topped off with strawberries and a little sugar free syrup. 


Apparently I'm on a strawberry kick because for a snack I had greek yogurt with strawberries and walnuts and a rice cake with strawberry jelly. Did you know rice cakes only have 7g of carbs? I just found this out. Mind blowing! ;)


I picked up some Ezekiel sprouted grain muffins at the store this week so I decided to make a little recipe that Jamie Eason had posted about on her Instagram a while back. I just spread a little marinara sauce on them and added grilled chicken, lactaid cottage cheese, spinach and Boars head turkey pepperoni then stuck them in the oven for about 10 minutes. I made B's the same way but used mozzarella on his and sprinkled a little Parmesan on top after they were cooked- we both loved them. 


Dinner was another Instagram recipe, and this is a MUST try. Gosh, this was good. 


I wrapped up the day with sweet egg whites- egg whites mixed with stevia and cinnamon and then a spread of peanut butter in the middle. Might sound weird, but I like it! 

I'm off to finish up writing some meal plans before we head out to Mexico Friday morning! Woo!

  1. your goals of staying lean while adding muscle to legs and shoulders is EXACTLY what I'm aiming for as well. I eat your M6 often (yumm!) Any idea when your 10 week workout plan will be ready for the JW site? :)

  2. I use a simple technique to stay lean, eating coconut oil. Seems funny right ?

    If you have a chance, you please explain the benefits of a high rep leg day for building muscle?

    Thanks!

    1. Doing more reps hits different muscle fibers :) It's just good to switch things up, so I do 1 heavier day with lower reps and 2 lighter day with more reps.
