What I eat in a day…

I have seen a lot of people post videos about this “What I eat in a day” topic recently and I think it’s really interesting. To be honest, I had NO idea what I wanted to blog about today but then this topic popped into my mind. The thing is, for me, everyday is different. I don’t always workout at the same time everyday or wake up at the same time so I cannot give you a “This is how I do it everyday” blog posting.

So, what I decided to do was take you through today – Monday January 25, 2016 – and tell you every single thing that I do and eat. I don’t know if this is interesting for you, but hopefully it is LOL! I get asked this question ALLLL the time, so I figure that it’s something that is pretty important to you guys.

Keep in mind that this is TODAY. For the most part, things stay generally the same but not always. It’s important for me to be flexible. I do eat mostly vegan but I will occasionally eat some fish or scrambled eggs. I guess you can call it, mostly “ovatarian.” Eh, whatever – I just eat what my body craves and performs the best on. Oh and I drink like 3-5 cups of green tea per day and 2 L of water (or more), but I didn’t document the timing. 🙂

Here’s what I eat in a day…

5:50 am – Wake up! Take vitamins, Omega 3-6-9 capsules, probiotics, BCAAs, drink protein shake + 1 clementine orange (usually I do 1/2 banana but I didn’t have any bananas at home) and drink pre-workout. For my pre-workout, I drink either Ketrim or DFINE8 Zero both made by Musclewerks. I have been taking both for like 8 years and they still give me tons of energy 🙂

6:30-7:45 am – GYM TIME!

8:10 am (at work) – Breakfast: Protein smoothie (1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 cup frozen berries, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, 2 Tbsp goji berries, 1 tsp flax seed meal, 1 scoop greens and water) + 1/2 apple + BCAAs.

-work-

10:45 am – Snack: Small handful of raw walnuts & raw pecans + 1/2 apple.

-work-

12:45pm – 1:15pm – Lunch: Sauteed green beans & carrots in chili oil with chopped hazelnuts on top and approx. 1/4 cup of quinoa. When it comes to veggies I NEVER measure, so I just filled up this plate 🙂 To be honest, I often work through lunch (NOT a good idea!). But today, I started reading this new book called Gratitude that my best friend bought me for Christmas.

-work-

hard boiled egg wraps

3:30 pm – Snack: Hard boiled egg lettuce wraps with chili pepper flakes. Each romaine lettuce wrap has one hard boiled egg and one hard boiled egg white.

4:30 pm left the office

5:00 pm my monthly massage – This is a MAJOR part of my fitness routine. I cannot train at the caliber I do without getting this massage each month. Sometimes I do 2x per month.

7:20 pm – Dinner: Tofu burger wrapped in lettuce with a side of homemade regular and sweet potato fries (baked not fried!). I eat tofu like 1-2x per month and today I made burgers for my boyfriend so I wanted to eat something similar as well. If I had more time I would make black bean or quinoa patties or something but I was wayyyyy too relaxed from my massage.

So, that’s what I eat in a day….well, that’s what I ate today and what my day looked like today. Feel free to Tweet me and let me know what you thought of this posting or any other topics you would like me to blog about.
