What I Ate.


One of the reasons why members of our accountability group like being in the private Facebook feed is to see what everyone eats on a daily basis to get to their goals. I have had a couple people mimic exactly what myself and other coaches/members consumed... and lost weight. It gave them an idea as to how much you should eat, how often to eat, and what nourishing your body on a consistent daily basis looks like (with some treat yourselves thrown in there).

I thought to give you a couple examples of what I eat in a day. Now remind you... as I write this I am 10 months pregnant! However, not much about my consumption has changed because my stomach is so extremely squished. I have no option other than to eat small meals like I used to. Also, I always treated myself on a daily basis before pregnancy to keep my mind healthy (I am literally a toddler- you tell me not to eat something and I will eat it ten fold) and I only ever eat intuitively (no counting calories or macros). Well, I do throw in an extra snack or extra little add ons than I normally would while being pregnant, but I will mark them for you.

Enjoy!

Day 1:

Breakfast:

-I always start my day with 15oz of water and aloe juice with my vitamins on an empty stomach. Pre-pregnancy it was water and lemon. Thirty minutes later, I eat.

-6oz Fresh green juice (cucumber, celery, spinach and 1/2 apple)

-1 hard boiled egg and 1 piece of toast with butter

Snack:

Energy Ball (baw)

Lunch:

-Protein Shake (1.5 frozen bananas, 1 scoop vanilla shakeology, almond milk, 2 tbsp peanut butter, cinnamon and vanilla extract) Pre-pregnancy I would have used half of a banana and 1tbsp pb

Snack:

-1 apple, string cheese and dark chocolate (maybe 2 pieces)

Dinner:

-1 cup Turkey Chili with 2 tbsp sour cream and 1/4 avocado

Dessert:

1/2 cup Eddy's Slow Churned Ice Cream with 1 cookie and whipped cream (Pre-pregnancy I would probably have had 2 cookies, a piece of chocolate, or nothing)

Day 2:

Breakfast:

-I always start my day with 15oz of water and aloe juice with my vitamins on an empty stomach. Pre-pregnancy it was water and lemon. Thirty minutes later, I eat.

-Protein Shake (1 cup frozen pineapple, almond milk, 1 scoop vanilla shakeology and vanilla extract with 1/3 cup vanilla granola on top). Pre-pregnancy I would have had half the amount of fruit and no granola.

Snack:

-Cucumbers, 3tbsp hummus and 1/2 of a piece of naan bread

Lunch:

-Salad with romaine lettuce, cabbage, kale, dried cherries, slivered almonds, parm cheese, balsamic dressing. 6oz rotisserie chicken on the side and a serving of dried apple chips.

Snack:

1 Pop tart with 8oz almond milk (there comes two in foiled wrapping- I ate one)

Dinner:

1 6oz pork chop with 1/2 sautéed apple and onion in olive oil, 1/3 cup basmati rice, and 1 cup roasted broccoli (I have been eating more carbs at dinner time during my pregnancy. Beforehand I would have left out the rice).

Snack:

1 cup berries with whipped cream

To be frank, when I am not truly watching what I eat, I may walk through the kitchen and pop in a hershey kiss or take a piece of a cookie here and there. But, when I am being serious about my goals, there is never any of that! I am very aware of every choice I make and it gets easier and easier as time passes. As you can see, I truly treat myself daily, yet eighty percent of my food intake is filled with nourishment. This is what I call a healthy lifestyle, not a diet!
