Glad everyone enjoyed seeing pictures of little Jax! He is the cutest!!
I captured most of my day through my iphone yesterday. So please excuse the poor quality of pictures. Lori and I get a lot of request for what we eat in a day, what we snack on, our workouts, etc. So we hope to show you all, and hopefully help others that are suffering with “afraid of eating too much fat” idea , instead learn that fat is your friend. Well the right kind of fat. And please remember we all handle different amounts of fats, although you should not fear them!!! Our bodies need fat for so many health reasons.
I started my day with some water, probiotic, and 1/2 tsp fermented cod liver oil, followed my a large peach.
Then after doing some work I decided I was ready for coffee and breakfast of the day. (my eats change daily)
Chia seed pudding – about a heaping 1/3 cup chia gel (I made a big batch of chia gel at the beginning of the week that I scoop from, so it was whatever was left), goat yogurt, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp hemp seeds, and decided I felt like chocolate so added some cocoa powder.
Back to work I went before I did my 8 minute plank workout, Gymboss Interval Timer ready. More on the new plank workout video soon.
Post workout meal was a green smoothie made with kale, water, ginger, banana, and peach.
Did more work.
Lunch was something fun! Decided it was a chocolate chip pancake kind of day.
mmm love pancakes! I tweaked this chocolate chip pancake recipe by using hemp protein powder instead of amaranth and did 2 eggs instead of applesauce.
plate one – pancakes with some scrambled eggs
I drizzled my plate with some maple syrup and 1 tbsp coconut oil.
And there was just one pancake left and a little eggs, I could not let them go to waste 😉 I did not have more maple with this plate, felt like more coconut oil!
Belly happy and full!
After lunch I steamed up this bad boy.
mmmm buttercup squash! very similar to my fav kabocha squash.
so good, seriously if you have not tried any variety of winter squash you must!
After I stuffed my face with some squash, I got dressed to head to my best friend’s daughters birthday party.
Then it was time to prep dinner.
On the weekends we have big family dinners! My dad loves to grill.
Nothing like sipping on some wine while prepping dinner.
I snacked on raw veggies with tahini. Probably had about 2 tbsp worth of tahini. Love that stuff.
Then it was dinner time. Grilled broccoli, onions, peppers and 3 types of fish. The fish was caught by my dad and my brother-in-law.
My first plate: fish and veggies, with more coconut oil!! I enjoyed two plates just like this.
Then I decided to make a new chocolate chip cookie recipe for dessert for the family.
I enjoyed two warm cookies!
Well that was my eats for the day. As I mentioned above my eats change just about everyday depending my schedule, what food I have on hand, and what I feel like. I have no idea how many calories I ate. No idea how many carbs, fat, protein etc. I just focused on real food. And most importantly enjoyed everything I ate. My stomach has been great all day!! And for me that is the most important.
Have a great day, I am currently at a football game with my dad. A little father daughter bonding time.
till next time,
