It's a new year, and although I'm not doing a cleanse, I'm really trying to incorporate more fruit and vegetables. I'm also really watching my portions. No matter how good you eat, if you eat too much, there are usually problems. So, I snagged this nifty glass container for my salads/soups/quinoa bowls.
This holds two cups, which makes a really good lunch portion. It's amazing how much better I feel after eating tons of fruit and veg for one week.
Here is a run down of my work food this week:
I have been starting my days with a smoothie. This week, I had cacao powder, spinach, and blueberries. It's my favorite combination.
I put protein powder in the mix usually. I'm going to try to have one serving a day.
For lunch this week, I have been stacking tons of salad ingredients in my little container. Then, I've been having fruit on the side.
I put a little lemon salad dressing on the bottom, followed by walnuts, beets, chickpeas, carrots, romaine and cilantro. Then, when I was ready for lunch, I flipped it over into a bowl and chowed down. So fresh and yummy!
I always go back and forth on whether or not I need snacks. I'm just packing some fruit and nuts and following my stomach.
If I'm still hungry after my snack, sometimes I will have a scoop of protein powder in some almond milk. It's so tasty!
The protein shake works out well if I have it in the late afternoon, so that way I have energy for a post-work workout. I have been loving hot yoga in these cold times.
Dinners have been a mix of all sorts of leftovers or salad, but I'll save that for another post.
What do you eat during the day? Would you like to see more daily food break downs?
