Happy FOOD day! I am officially on DAY 3 of my healthy challenge and I feel freakin’ awesome. That sounds lame but I feel great for two reasons. One, because eating good food makes you feel better DUH?! and two, because I feel good about myself for stickin’ to the plan! Today, I thought I’d talk about random things that I’ll be eating over the next 8 weeks. This is what we bought at Costco today: strawberries, pears, peppers, and this awesome veggie mix:
I also bought a rotisserie chicken, hummus, shrimp, carrots, deli meat (that’s not really the greatest choice), and this cool lookin’ vegan dish! I tried it already. So yummy!
BREAKFAST: I cooked up this Steel Cut Oats recipe on Sunday and saved half of it. This morning, all I did was add a little almond milk and heated it up!
LUNCH: 1/2 a Veggie and Grain bowl, 5 shrimp, 1/2 c honey dew. I was still hungry so I had a small bowl of wheat chex with almond milk.
SNACKS: While playing UNO today I snacked on veggies and hummus and ate a hard boiled egg. I also had a couple handfuls of lite air popped kettlecorn. If I’m craving something sweet or salty and crunchy, I eat 1/2 protein bar and 6 cashews.
DINNER: After a baseball game tonight (I’ll pack a bag of carrots to munch on) I’m going to stir fry up some of my kale and red chard super foods with a little rotisserie chicken! That will be all for the night. If I need an extra snack I LOVE these probiotic healthy ice cream bars or a casein protein shake!
Today on my run I could feel that I had more energy although right now I’m utterly exhausted, but I will keep going…
Wednesday I’ll talk about my workouts for the week. To end this beautiful day, here’s a song I’ve been hearing lately that I like to crank up and listen to with the windows down!
That’s all for now. Gotta get to a game. EAT ON!
