For the most part, I would say that I eat pretty healthy. Usually, I spend time meal prepping. But this week was one that I deiced to take a break from it. I thought that it would be fun to take you guys along for the ride.
Monday: I had a lazy start to my morning since I got home late Sunday night. I woke up and took my dog outside and decided to have oatmeal for breakfast. (You’ll come to learn I love oatmeal!) I cooked up some oats with water, and added in brown sugar, honey, strawberries, lastly, some slivered almonds. For lunch, I decided to cook up some cauliflower pizza. I picked up the cauliflower crust from Trader Joe’s. I topped it with some sliced heirloom tomatoes, onions, beef, garlic and olive oil. To finish the night, I ended with a light dinner with some avocado toast with eggs. I toasted some bread and sliced up some avocado and seasoned it with crushed red pepper and salt. Then I added some onion and tomatoes on top. (This is one of my favorite things to eat. Also, during the day I snacked on some Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies that I picked up at Trader Joe’s.
Tuesday: This was a busy day for me, I had the opportunity to hang out with my Mom all day! I started off my morning with some oats, (of course!) I topped it with some brown sugar, maple syrup, strawberries, and almonds. For lunch, more like linner (aka lunch + dinner), I had a grass-fed burger from this super cool restaurant. For the burger, I had it on a gluten free bun with some avocado, an egg and to finish it off some lettuce. This burger was delicious! Since we ate dinner so late I had a slice of my leftover cauliflower pizza from the day before. For a snack, during the day we decided to hit up Ben N’ Jerrys and I opted to get a kid size raspberry sorbet in a waffle cone. It was so good.
Wednesday: To start the day off I started with one of my favs, some avocado toast. This time I made it a little different. I toasted some bread and sliced up the avocado and seasoned it with red pepper, some pink Himalayan salt, and some crushed pepper. I also added a poached egg on top. It was so good! For lunch, I cooked up some organic salmon with some pepper and salt. Along with the salmon, I had some brown and black rice that I picked up from Trader Joe’s and some organic sautéed zucchini, carrots and onions. I went out to a dinner with a friend at a dinner so I wanted to pick something light up so I just had eggs with hash browns. Nothing too heavy since it was a little bit later in the night. For a snack this day I had a cliff bar in the flavor chocolate chip.
Thursday: I started off with some good old fashioned oats with strawberries, honey, and brown sugar. Then for lunch, I had some grilled chicken with some leftover black and brown rice from the day before with some sautéed carrots. For dinner, it was another late night so I opted for a salad. I did want to have some protein in the salad so I cooked up some steak to about medium rare, and paired it with some lettuce, cucumbers, and crispy onions. For dressing, I used a light hand and dressed the salad with balsamic vinaigrette. For a snack this day I had some baby carrots by themselves.
Friday: For breakfast this morning I had a little time so I decided to hard boil two eggs and I just added some salt and pepper to them. For lunch this day I had some leftover steak from the night before so I made the whole salad again since I liked it so much the night before. This day for dinner I cooked up some more chicken on the grill and paired it with some grilled zucchini. For a snack this day I just wanted something light so I opted for some fresh organic strawberries. These are seriously are my favorite snack in the summer.
Saturday: I had an early morning this day and spent a few hours on the road. So, I grabbed a plain bagel toasted with egg and a couple slices of bacon, I also had some orange juice with it. This kept me full and was just what I needed. For lunch, I grabbed a grilled chicken breast and ate it on a bed of lettuce along with some red onions. I was feeling super tired when it came to dinner time so on my way home I decided to pick up some dinner. I grabbed a sweet potato sushi roll and I ate it with some wasabi, and on the side, I had some hibachi fried rice. This dinner was exactly what I needed because it filled me right up! For a snack, I munched on oatmeal with brown sugar, strawberries, and raspberries.
Sunday: This was my grocery shopping day so I was eating whatever I had in the house this day! Before going grocery shopping I made some eggs and had some fruit with it. They always say to not go grocery shopping on an empty stomach and I definitely did not after having this breakfast. For lunch, I chose to do another steak salad, this is becoming one of my favorites to make because it’s super good and it is easy to make. Dinnertime rolled around and I was not that hungry. I decided to go for my fav which is some rolled oats! I used some almond milk to make it and added in a spoonful of brown sugar, some honey, maple syrup, chia seeds, almonds and topped with strawberries. For a snack this day I had some of the Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies that I had earlier in the week.
That is a run-down of everything I ate this week. Like I mentioned I try my best to eat healthy and I wanted to display to you all that even though you are busy that you can still find ways to keep on a healthy meal plan. I may not work out too often but sticking to healthy food allows me to stay in shape! Hopefully, this can help inspire you all to eat healthy or even give you some ideas of meals you can make.
