Several weeks ago, both Monica and Karen suggested I write a blog on what I eat during any given week. Since I love to cook and I love to eat, I thought this might help give you some ideas!
Smoothie: 1 scoop of Bone Broth Protein, 2 tbsp. Collagen, 6 frozen strawberries, 1/4 gf organic oats, 8 oz. water.
2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup cooked oats, 1/2 grapefruit
4 egg whites, 2 oz salmon, sun dried tomato, spinach omelet
2 eggs + 3 slices bacon sandwich on 2 slices Canyon Bakehouse GF Rye
Smoothie: 3 scoops Pure Pea protein, 1/2 frozen banana, 8 oz. unsweetened hemp milk, 1 tsp. Maca powder, 2 tbsp. hemp hearts
This is almost ALWAYS leftovers from the night before. I make sure to make enough to cover my lunch for the following day. An awesome habit to get into because then you don’t have to worry about it the next morning.
If I have a lunch meeting, it’s a salad +protein, dressing on the side.
Grilled chicken and roasted red potatoes with onions.
Pulled pork made in the crock pot with Organic BBQ sauce, side of curried cauliflower.
Zucchini spaghetti or GF pasta, homemade turkey meatballs with homemade sauce (or anything organic from the store), roasted broccoli.
Baked pork chop and roasted Brussels sprouts
Eggs, bacon or sausage, roasted red potatoes
Turkey sandwich, fruit
If I cook, similar to weekday dinners.
One of my favorite things to do! I love good food, good company, and good conversation. However, I need to manage fitness progress so I am mindful about my choices. Eating out can add up quickly, both monetarily and unwanted calories!
The Field– any burger with a GF bun, fries
Fuji Jade– anything spicy! Usually diced chicken with chilis and white rice or beef and asparagus in XO sauce. And sushi, they have amazing sushi!
Kamrai– everything on the menu, that I’ve had, is delicious. I will sometimes opt out of rice if I’ve already eaten a lot of carbs that day.
Otto’s– I love their smoked wings and thighs! I typically get the sweet and spicy chili sauce on the side. They have amazing salads and I typically add grilled salmon. It’s a little more difficult to eat gluten free here, but I do my best.
Gigi’s– salad or steak, sometimes a sandwich on GF bread.
When I indulge, my favorites are an extra dirty martini with Bluecoat Gin or GF cider. My favorites are at Fuji Jade (their cocktail list is awesome) and Otto’s Cherry Cider.
If you have questions about menu planning, feel free to email me. I am more than happy to help!
