Back to my routine today! Today's success was largely due to lots of meal prep.
What I ate:
Meal 1: banana, bulletproof coffee, 4 baked eggs with 1/2 serving of ham, grape tomatoes, spinach
Meal 2: more of last night's salmon with chimichurri but over about 3/4 cup of plain zoodles this time. About 1/2 cup roasted sweet potato and 1/3 cup cooked beets. 1 mason jar salad of tomato, bell pepper, celery, and baby spinach dressed with olive oil and lemon juice. Finally, 3/4 cup of double celery soup (roasted celery root and celery blended with homemade turkey stock) Told ya I made meals 1 and 2 on the large side! It took me 45 full minutes to eat all of my lunch, but I still didn't feel stuffed. Win! Salad only pictured:
Meal 2.5: 1/2 cup baked egg whites with ham, grape tomatoes, and spinach. 10 baby carrots. I intended to eat a serving of avocado with this but it tasted off so I skipped it
Meal 3: 1 cup zoodles, 1 serving pot roast (recipe from One Pot book by Martha Stewart), green beans with homemade bacon fat/whole grain mustard dressing
Evening: 1 cup Natural Calm (1/2 tsp), 1 cup Chamomile w/ Lavender tea
Thoughts: I did 30 minutes of Turbofire in between Meal 2.5 and 3, and I was starving before eating each of these times. I was still hungry after dinner so I think I need to add more protein or fat to my meals. I made a ground beef stir fry to eat tomorrow night, and I snuck a few tastes of that. I can't wait to eat it for a meal!
