I got a recent request for more food pics on Instagram. I talk a LOT about needing to eat more…and for some people, seeing it played out in photos seems to help. So here’s a full day of eating!
Note: this is definitely a lower-calorie day for me. My appetite fluctuates due to several factors, including menstrual cycle and exercise routine. (This is one of the reasons why I would never force myself to adhere to a specific calorie intake every single day!!)
I didn’t do a hard workout on this day (just a 4 mile walk outdoors), but I do tend to have a bigger appetite on the days I lift heavy or do HIIT. For more information on feeding your workouts appropriately, check out this post.
The days I eat more typically look the same, but with the addition of the following:
Maybe a starch with lunch or dinner (potato, sweet potato variety, beans, etc.)
This Chocolate Pudding after dinner. I’m gonna be honest: I eat this most nights.
Wake up (look in the mirror say wassup)
Large glass of water
Coffee — organic, fair trade, dark roast, pour over, ALWAYS. Blended with 1 teaspoon coconut oil.
I pretty much make this exact smoothie for breakfast every single day. I’m weirdly obsessed with it.
1 cup frozen cauliflower rice
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
Handful baby spinach
1 scoop collagen
1 scoop Clearvite powder
2 teaspoons maca powder
Here, I served it in old ice coffee cup because it was the perfect size (16 ounces).
