Perhaps it’s just me, but I have discovered that reading from an actual list of healthy snacks & meals is a simple way to incorporate them into my diet. When reading labels I primary only check the sugar content- if it’s more than six grams per serving, I’ll pass or only have a few bites [ I never count calories ]. Refined white sugar is a big factor in weight gain & has no nutritional value. Here’s a peak [ P.S. I change up what I eat all the time! ].
Last Friday’s food intake:
8:30 am– A small glass of Simply Orange Juice [ half OJ, half sparkling water ], a serving of Ezekiel 100% flour-less, sprouted grain cereal with a serving of Rice Dream milk & a handful of blueberries.
9:30 am– Beach workout with the girls [ I drank a 33 ounce water bottle ].
10:30 am– 1 medium sized banana & a medium coffee with a splash of soy milk [ I like to add pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and/or nutmeg as sweetener ].
12:00 pm– Taught a Pure Barre class and drank a Juicer’s veggie juice [ kale, bell peppers, ginger, lemon, apples, beets, tomatoes & spinach ].
1:30 pm– A huge handful of pistachios & another 33 ounce water bottle [ I prefer Evian or Smart Water ].
2:15 pm- A protein burger sans the bun with Dijon mustard & a small mixed greens salad.
4:30 pm- Brown rice chips [ about 15- I love Lundberg Family Farms Sea Salt brand ] with hummus & a couple squeezes of lemon.
6:00 pm- Another 33 ounce water bottle.
6:30 pm– One glass of cabernet [ it was a Friday! ]
7:30 pm– An omelette with 3 egg whites, spinach & reduced fat cheese [ I’m weird…I always eat breakfast for dinner ] & a side spaghetti squash [ I eat this almost every night- so many benefits to squash ].
9:00 pm– A glass of water, a half glass of cab & a big bowl of raspberries with Truvia.
11:30 pm– Sleep [ my biggest beauty secret ]!
