My Eats Yesterday…

Hey everyone, so as requested here are my eats for yesterday..I am not very exciting during the week so many of my meals are pretty repetitive. I wasn’t (and am not still) feeling very well towards the end of yesterday so my food choices are a little different then usual. I think I may post again to show you what I eat about 75% of the time(when I am not sick haha) if you would like..?(yes I am pretty boring actually..lol).  But because I took these semi-attractive photos to say the least I thought I might as well go ahead and share yesterdays eats with you. Maybe it will help to give you some alternate ideas to what you’d normally eat too…

Messy Counter..
My counter is never clean when I go to make a smoothie! haha. This one was peanut-butter banana since my freezer is overflowing with ripe frozen bananas. Not sure why I had the stevia out, this smoothie was plenty sweet enough on it’s own.
protein powder
Here’s the protein powder I use for smoothies, I took a picture as I scraped out my last scoop! Love this stuff! I highly recommend it.

And..the final product.
ssaladdd
For lunch I had one of my typical giant salads consisting of a ton of romaine lettuce, red pepper, green pepper, green/red onion, carrots, kidney beans, herbed goat cheese, black forest ham, 1 hard boiled egg, a little salt, pepper, basil & oregano topped with light italian dressing.

Snack Time Protein Bar!
For a snack this is also a bit different for me because I had a new protein bar I bought as a treat. I’d heard they were really good…

…and they are. Like eating an OH Henry bar! This one was Caramel Chocolate. I also had some usual carrots with 2 types of hummus(supremely spicy/roasted red pepper) and a cup of chia tea plus a cup of water!
Ribs
For dinner(note this is when I started to feel a little sick), I picked at 2 ribs my Mom made, they were good but sadly I could only eat a little.
sBeans I also had only about a spoonful of these amazing beans(again I wish I could have brought myself to eat more!).
smacaroni Lastly I also had a small bowl of my Mom’s delicious macaroni tuna salad.

greek yogurt bar
Later being a little hungry still due to my small dinner I stupidly had a strawberry healthy choice greek yogurt bar. It tasted great! But my stomach wasn’t too pleased with me later!
sBedtime snack
Before bed I usually have a big snack so instead I just had a small piece of my favourite whole wheat toast, some natural peanut butter and banana and a couple strawberries and carrots. Perfect comfort food to me!

So that’s my yesterday in a nutshell! Everything I ate was fit into my macros, although I think I may have eaten slightly less than normal due to my upset stomach. I also was not able to complete my workout but it’s best to listen to your body so I am not going to lose sleep over it..Anyways, hopefully I can share more of my meals with you and include some more exciting foods haha, but that’s it for now! 🙂

Today’s Healthy Eats…

Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
Late posting! I know! But here’s what I ate today. I hope you guys like these posts! I really just wanted to give you some healthy ideas for meals without writing out a whole recipe and just to give you an idea of how I eat on a daily basis :). Let me know if I am boring you! haha. Anyways this was my delicious breakfast. Very simple, a peanut butter banana smoothie with cinnamon and unsweetened vanilla almond milk..perfect! Okay and of course a little protein powder thrown in ;).
Lunch Salad Lunch salad 2
For lunch I ate this beautiful salad, it was almost too pretty to mess up haha. I topped it with some fresh lime juice and balsamic vinegar along with a few spices like oregano and basil. It didn’t need much dressing!

Eggs and Hummus Snack
My snack today was more like a mini meal with 2 scrambled eggs and some veggies with spicy hummus!

Dinner Pork Potatoes Salad
For dinner I had some pork roast with a little potato (not a huge fan of potatoes so didn’t quite finish it), corn and a fresh salad with chickpeas and a little goat cheese.
Fruit Almond Salad

Later for a late dessert/pre-workout snack I had some fresh fruit salad with almonds!
After my workout I had my usual bowl of cottage cheese and a spoonful of natural PB. Now it’s off to bed! Night! 🙂

P.S. Tip for today, drink lots of water! I know you hear it often but it’s so important. You don’t see it but with each of my meals I drink a tall glass of water(like the glass from my breakfast smoothie). Even when I have a smoothie I still drink the water or I have a cup of tea! 🙂

Some of my Latest Eats

Well as of late I have been cooking like crazy, I love finding new and interesting recipes. Some were better than others but overall everything has been really tasty! Here’s what I’ve eaten so far…
Crepes3
Breakfast was coconut milk Paleo crepes topped with warm defrosted berries mixed with a dash of sweetener and a drizzle of dark chocolate. The crepes were delicious although I discovered later that my coconut milk had less fat than I had thought which left my crepes very fragile. But I will definitely attempt again with higher fat coconut milk!

Omelette
Another breakfast I had was just a simple omelette, I make these whenever I am feeling less creative. They are just a quick go to breakfast. This one had a little salt/pepper, 2 eggs, 1 egg white + about 1/2-1tsp of water(This is a trick my Mom taught me, it makes the eggs fluffier, especially when making scrambled eggs! You could also add milk for a richer taste if you eat dairy :)) Inside the omelette was shredded ham, red/green peppers and chopped tomatoes.
Shrimp Pasta
Lunch was a shrimp “pasta dish” with cooked spaghetti squash, shrimp, roma tomatoes, green peas & red pepper flakes all tossed in olive oil with some salt/pepper, basil & a pinch of oregano.
Fav Dinner
Another super delicious dinner was blacked chicken with steamed broccoli and a side of fried “rice”! The “rice” or cauliflower rice was delicious and tasted just like the real thing. I will be posting a recipe of how to make it! 🙂
Avocado

Avocado2
I also have created an awesome way to eat avocados, just add a sprinkle of garlic/onion powder, pinch of cayenne,red pepper flakes, chopped green onion and a drizzle of soya sauce-Amazing!!
Super Low-Carb Tortillas
Low-carb tortillas!
Omg they worked, I was so amazed by these. I am trying one tonight with taco meat, I will let you know how it goes and post the original recipe for you all :). These are so versatile.

Mini Fudge Cups

Lastly this is just the icing on the cake, or should I say chocolate on the fudge! This is a super simple and healthy Paleo peanut butter chocolate fudge which I also will be posting the recipe for! Soo good!

Keep checking back for all of these recipes and more! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
