WIAW: A typical day of eating

Want to know what I eat in a day? Today is your lucky day because I’m going to share. I should have shared this a while ago because a TON of people would e-mail me asking to me to make videos about what I eat in a day. I will tell you my eating habits haven’t changed much since I’ve been preggers or been on my weight loss journey. This is pretty straight on as before. I may just eat a little bit more on some days than others, AND I might want to eat some pizza little more often. So here it is:

BREAKFAST: I start off every morning with oatmeal lately. I wasn’t able to stomach it for a while but now it’s back in my life. I’ve been mixing it up with different types of oatmeal though so I’m growing an expanding (figuratively and literally). I talked about my peanut butter and jelly oatmeal last week.

SNACK: I eat a snack around 10am. I’ve been crunching on the kale lately. Yes, that never went away.

Or I’ve been eating greek yogurt and a banana.

Healthy Choice Meal

LUNCH: I’ve been eating a variety of Healthy Choice steamer meals.

But sometimes I do eat what we make for dinner for lunch. That’s what I did today. The meal prepping has been such a wacky thing in our house lately because I’ll want to eat one thing and then I won’t want it. A couple of weeks ago, Willie made turkey burgers for dinner that I ended up not eating the first week, but ate for breakfast the second week. I’m all thrown off. Today’s lunch/dinner: baked chicken, wild rice and green beans with carrots. Oh, there was an apple. The picture isn’t flattering so I’m not sharing it.

SNACK: Snacks aren’t the same every day. I usually eat whatever is in the house. I use to eat Luna Bars but once again I can’t always handle them. I’ve been eating sweet potatoes with greek yogurt or avocado toast. I have been craving smoothies lately too but I hate paying for them. I don’t always have the stuff in the house to make them. When all else fails, I go to Panera for black bean soup.

DINNER: I’ve been craving salads this week for dinner. I use Bolthouse Farms dressing. Blue cheese is my favorite and it’s only 35 calories. I’ve used the chicken from the air fryer.

SNACK: And I don’t have a picture of it because I never thought to photograph it, but after dinner sometimes I do eat applesauce and graham crackers.

That is what I typically eat in a day.  Nothing too crazy, but I’m eating.

Air fryer has changed my world

Air fryer has changed my world

When I got pregnant my number one craving has been chicken.  I want chicken strips and mashed potatoes (well potatoes of any kind) all the time but those little strips can pack a lot of calories.  And having french fries on the regular isn’t that healthy either.  I’m really trying to stay away from that stuff.  Then I got to thinking about an air fryer. I watched the infomercials many times and I was intrigued but it wasn’t enough to make me want to get one.  After all, do they really work?  Does it really require no oil or little… View Post

Recipe Roundup: My need for chicken has reached a new level

Hello all!  I hope you know what I’ve been doing: working out, working and watching the Olympics.  There is no surprise there.  I thought today I would do a recipe round of chicken recipes because my need for chicken has gone to all new levels.  It’s the one thing I haven’t steered far from during my pregnancy so I do spend a lot of time looking up delicious recipes to try at home. At our home, there tends to be an leaning towards an asian profile in our foods. This would be something we would eat on the regular. Korean… View Post

Recipe: The land of Zuchinni Bread

Recipe: The land of Zuchinni Bread

I haven’t spent enough time in the kitchen, it’s time for me to go back.  Now I have a bit more time on my hands since I’m not constantly in training for something so I thought it would be the perfect time to start experimenting again.  I’ve been wanting bread of some sort and the idea of zuchinni bread came to mind. Everyone seems to love it; I should give it a try. Let’s be honest, zuchinni tastes like nothing.  That’s why healthy eating people put it in their foods as a filler and a way to get some veggies… View Post

WIAW: Eating in Indianapolis at Fitbloggin

WIAW: Eating in Indianapolis at Fitbloggin

Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday focusing on the food I ate in Indianapolis at Fitbloggin.  I didn’t expect the food scene to be that amazing in Indy but there was some great stuff there.  Lots of different varieties of food to choose from so it was always an adventure. Thursday I went on a pre-conference excursion to Lifetime Fitness.  They had food for us to enjoy after our workouts.  Of course, it was stuff made in-house and is sold at the gym.  There was chicken salad and other lunch meat sandwiches which I can’t have so I just enjoyed… View Post
