Hey everyone! I loved all your comments on my last post about shopping! It’s so great to be able to wear clothes you love and feel good in them.
I’ve been wanting to do a post covering all the food I eat in a typical day, and Kimi’s recent post (thanks girl!) inspired me to do it. I’m nervous for the reaction I might get, but everyone’s different, especially when it comes to how much food you need. I have been maintaining on roughly this amount (1500-1600 calories) for several months, with small fluctuations, so it definitely works for me. So, just a warning, don’t compare yourself to anyone! Some people need to eat more, some less but it’s all okay as long as you’re healthy! So…here goes! But first, a close-up of the very yummy PB&J I had on Saturday night. It’s called the Prickly Cactus, and it has multigrain bread, raspberry-jalapeno jelly, chipotle PB, baby spinach and chopped peanuts sprinkled on it. It was spicy and so different than a normal PB&J but so much better!
Now onto what I ate yesterday! I started out my morning with some mocha overnight oats. First time I tried this combination, and it was so good, plus it gave me a little caffeine burst! Basically just quick rolled oats, some almond milk (just tried it yesterday and it’s the best) and half a packet of Starbucks mocha Via instant coffee. On the side was a spicy veggie sausage pattie and a Medjool date stuffed with crunchy almond butter.
|Looks yucky, but so yummy|
|I had a very brown breakfast, apparently|
Lunch, as usual, was on-the-go between classes. I packed an Apple Cinnamon Pure bar (not my favorite flavor, but still good), Kashi TLC crackers with crunchy almond butter, water and a big juicy Pink Lady apple!
I also packed an afternoon snack, since Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays are my days that I have four hours in a row of classes and I don’t go back to my dorm til around 6. I love making my own trail mixes so that’s what I did: a serving of Udi’s cranberry granola (I love that it’s made in my state, but surprisingly, I never tried it before), a handful of Annie’s Pretzel Bunnies (so cute!) and some Cocoa Roast almonds.
|Close-up of the pretzel bunnies (and carrot)--ignore the words haha|
|I didn't eat this bunny! My grandma sent this for Easter...it's too cute :)|
|My gyro! (Get it, like 'My Hero'?)|
|Dried up carrots (ew!)|
|Ugly, but yummy|
But after dinner was a completely different story. An hour before snack time, my stomach started hurting from intense hunger! I waited it out, then had a huge bowl of Kashi Berry Blossoms cereal, topped with dried apples and peaches. Afterwards, I was still a little hungry, so I had a little more cereal.
|Sorry about the awful lighting, it was nighttime!|
|Made in my state!|
So that was my Monday! Oh, and I wore one of my new pairs of shorts yesterday, and I didn’t regret it, even though it got cold and cloudy in the afternoon.
Q’s: What was your favorite thing you ate yesterday (or today)?
