Just make sure to wipe your keyboards free of drool when you finish reading this post.
Breakfast: Well this one isn’t really crazy or different than normal, I ate my usual eggwhites (seasoned er’ day with dill and garlic salt), smoked tofu, and grapes. Grapes from Costco have been SO SO SO amazing lately. My mom bought a 5lb container of them on Saturday and they were gone by Tuesday… oops.
Morning snack: After working the morning away at school I realized it was almost 11am and my stomach was growling. I ate a Quest bar (Cookies and Cream) and a banana to hold me over until I was ready for lunch. I always think bananas are such a good idea when I toss them in my school bag but then when it comes time to eat them they have somehow ripened to mush. Blehck.
Lunch: This lunch is brought to you by Filistix, the cafe in my school building. In the three and a half years I have been at this school I had never bought food from this place before… which was probably for the best because now I am going to want it ALL THE TIME. It’s super delicious. I had the falafel and rice bowl, which comes with a side of almond cranberry coleslaw.
Afternoon snack: I was craving pizza for dinner so I set out making dough and letting it rise and such but in the meantime I was super hungry so I munched on carrot sticks and red pepper hummus while I waited for my pizza dough to rise, the veggies to cook, and the pizza to bake.
Dinner: Voila! Perfection. I used the whole wheat pizza dough recipe my family loves and just made 1/4 of the recipe. It turned out perfectly. I didn’t eat the crust because there was a little too much pizza crust for my liking (yeah, I know I was the one that made it) and all I wanted was more of the toppings! I had zucchini, mushrooms, and olives on my pizza… all of my favourites!
When I have fitness goals in my head my nutrition is SO much better. I kind of can’t wait until Friday when I start a new strength training routine because that means I will feel like eating healthier too. I mean this day wasn’t really terrible, I got lots of veggies and protein in, but then after my pizza I was watching a movie and just really craving chocolate.
Yeaaaaahhh… let’s not talk about it.
I hope to be back next week with a somewhat healthier day of eating but for now, let’s enjoy the photos of my cheesy and delicious eats. 😉
Do you find you eat healthier when you are nailing your fitness or vice versa?
