What Happens When You Don't Food Prep

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! I mentioned in my post yesterday that I was still getting caught up from being on vacay and although I did make it to the grocery store, that didn't mean much in the way of food prep. So what does one do when they don't have food prepped? Eat out of course. 

NOT! You eat egg whites for 3 out of 5 meals! 


So silly but egg whites take minimal prep time and you can make them lots of different ways so I went for it. Far left is egg whites with zucchini, onion, jalapeƱo, and ketchup with an Ezekiel english muffin. I topped half my muffin with cinnamon and stevia and half with sugar free jelly. Middle photo is spinach, egg whites, avocado and an Applegate chicken sausage. And finally on the right just some plain egg whites with salsa and a piece of cinnamon raisin bread. Is this ideal? Eh probably not but it kept me from eating junk or eating out all day while I was able to prep some food for the rest of the week. I also wanted to make sure I stayed close to my macros because I definitely have a little work to do after vacation. 


These were the other two meals I had yesterday- a post workout protein shake with spinach, MRM protein, almond milk and ice along with 2 rice cakes with greek yogurt and microwaved blueberries. Then for dinner I made homemade pasta sauce (my moms recipe) with brown rice noodles. I have to admit I've been using pasta sauce out of a jar lately and after making this last night I think I'll keep making it from scratch-- it really just doesn't compare! 

I'm off to do back and bi's today and work up a new workout plan for a couple online clients looking to build a booty! So far I'm having success finally building up my glutes and I'm excited to help these ladies do the same since I know all too well what bathing suit diaper butt feels like!

  1. Your rice cakes with yogurt and microwaved berries look to die for! What a random combo that I'd never come up with, but totally want to try!

  2. I love your ideas each Wednesday. I'm a terrible eater and it boils down to ideas. When I think healthy, I think chicken...boiled :) I know that's not true, I just can't think of anything. Question - when you use spinach in your eggs (or other recipes), do you have fresh spinach in fridge or do you buy frozen? If frozen, do you just thaw or what to get it cooked quickly? Thank you!

  4. I agree with Anita. Egg whites can be paired up with anything! The pasta looks very delicious. And while I haven't tried mixing my rice cakes with yogurt, I think I must! Thank you for sharing!
