I have no idea how this post will go over, and most of you may not care one bit what I eat! But, I love seeing bloggers’ meal plans, healthy eating tips, and records of what a day in the life: meals version looks like. So on Friday I decided to record everything that I ate, including our cheat dinner and TV-watching snacks!
The pictures are not pretty, and this is not a perfect way to eat, but I’m just being real!
We are eating mostly grain- dairy- and sugar-free, but this day I made some exceptions.
BREAKFAST: Smoothie bowl (spinach, berries, banana, pineapple, chia seeds, probiotic, unsweetened almond milk, raw almond butter) with grain-free “granola” (nuts, coconut, coconut oil, cinnamon, and a bit of stevia) and decaf (with a tiny bit of regular mixed in) coffee with Califia Farms almond creamer, vanilla unsweetened.
LUNCH: I packed this as a to-go lunch because I was planning to be out of the house. Being pregnant, I can’t skip meals without feeling sick, so I like to be prepared. This meal was SO filling and delicious. I will absolutely eat this for lunches in the future!
2 boiled eggs; 1/2 avocado; 1 kiwi; carrots; cucumber; whole grain mustard + balsamic vinegar for dipping; himalayan pink sea salt for the avocado and egg
WATER: I try to drink plenty throughout the day. I added lime and mint to keep it interesting.
SNACKS: Again, not ideal, but they’re a tiny bit better than my old go-to, tortilla chips!
DINNER: We had a family date night at a Greek-style restaurant. We ordered several smaller plates to share. These included lamb skewers, broccolini, hummus with pita (I skipped the pita), marsala mushrooms, and a prosciutto and burrata caprese salad. Oh my, that salad was divine!
TV SNACK: Todd and I caught up on Modern Family and New Girl and enjoyed some La Croix and homemade popcorn. I make my popcorn with non-GMO kernels, a little coconut oil and some sea salt. I cook it in a brown paper bag in the microwave and we love it!
There it is! An honest, not-very-glamorous look at my meals in a day.
