So I have found that being prepared is the key to eating clean. On Sunday I spent a few hours prepping my food for the next few days. It has helped me out tremendously! I was able to divide my foods up into their serving sizes to make things much easier on me. When I’m hungry, or headed to work, I just grab enough fruits, veggies, protein and starches.
I still have to figure out a lot of things though. I think I’ve got my first 2 morning meals planned out pretty well..but after those two, things get a little less organized.
Here was my nutrition yesterday. I think I did pretty darn well. There are a couple things that aren’t 100% clean on here, but hey..I’m not perfect!
|Meal 1||7:45||1 slice of Ezekial toast, 1 tbs natural peanut butter, 4 egg whites, 4 strawberries|
|Meal 2||10||Greek Yogurt (lemon-verbena berry flavor), half an orange, 1/4 cup kashi crunch honey almond cereal|
|Meal 3||12||5 oz deli turkey, 1 cup green beans, 1/4 cup kashi crunch honey almond cereal|
|Meal 4||2:45||Labrada Lean Body For Her Meal Replacement Shake|
|4:15||Gym (chest & shoulders & 30 min HIIT on treadmill)|
|Meal 5||6||4 oz chicken breast, 1 cup green beans, 1/4 cup brown rice, sweet baby rays bbq sauce|
|Meal 6||8:30||4 oz deli turkey, carrots and celery, sugar free jello|
Water consumed = 152 oz
I burned 548 calories on my workout at the gym. For the sprints, I did 30 second sprints from 8-9mph. I ended it off with 3 sprints at 10, 10.5 and 11mph. 11 is a bit intense for me!
I can’t believe the difference in the amount of food I’ve been eating and what I used to eat! I used to eat my 3 meals a day. I now eat every 2-3 hours! I’m also seeing some pretty decent changes in my body too so hopefully I can keep this going!
Here’s a couple pics of my eats. I appologize for my classy paper plates 😉 Hey..I’m a busy girl these days..who wants to do the dishes? Not me!
My desk at work has somehow turned into a supplement cabinet. haha.
I’ve got about 4 meal replacements and a few packs of protein. In my other cabinet I have the rest of my protein. This isn’t all of it 😉
Hopefully I never get fired because if someone came to clean out my desk they would be a bit surprised.
Have you ever had a meal replacement shake? What do you think about them?
I’m new to them but the Labrada Lean Body for Her was pretty tasty. It’s tough to prepare 6 meals a day so these make it easier to get your 6 meals in. I’d be fine with having 1-2 of my meals be meal replacements. It’s so much easier and you get all the right nutrition!
