A Healthy Day of Eating: Tuesday Recap
Thank goodness for coffee, because this week of insomnia is driving me nuts! Despite eating well, training hard, hydrating constantly, I cannot fall asleep. I’ll be sitting on the couch yawning, get into bed, turn off the light, and then HELLO WORLD what thoughts cannot run through my head. HA! I’m hoping it is a phase and it is going to go away real fast. With that being said, coffee is amazing and I have 2 cups every morning, but I also had a happy belly yesterday filled with lots of key nutrients for pre-workout, post-workout, and just keeping me fueled and happy throughout the day. It was a good food day! 🙂
- 2 c coffee with unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 c oatmeal
- 1 T peanut butter
- 1 diced apple
- 1/2 c pumpkin
- dash of cinnamon
Throw the oatmeal into the microwave first for about 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and mix together and throw back into the microwave for another 30 seconds (this makes it a little more creamy). Then add the toppings!
- 1/2 Asian chicken tortilla wrap with lots of veggies, sliced almonds, and hot sauce
- 1 large handful of sugar snap peas
- 1 T hummus
- 2 100 calorie whole wheat tortillas
- 1 handful of kidney beans
- 1 handful broccoli
- 1 handful of Mexican low-fat shredded cheese
- 1/2 c sauteed mushrooms seasoned with fresh garlic, salt, and pepper
- fresh guacamole (made by moi)
- Mango and Peach salsa
This took me under 30 minutes to throw together and was delicious and filling. I try to do one meatless dinner a week, to keep things interesting and try out new recipes. Plus, it’s always a good way to use up the veggies. 🙂 I microwaved the broccoli for 3 minutes. Threw all the mushrooms into a skillet. Prepared the tortillas and threw everything onto the George Foreman and dinner was served in 5 minutes. Easy as pie!
Despite my insomnia, I am still going to tackle the gym, do some work, take John Alvino’s class tonight, and then visit some family friends for dinner and have a hoofer glass of wine. Tomorrow is my “day off” from training and is filled with awesome activities like going to the DMV! UGH! Poor Kala has to be dropped off at the vet early in the AM, for all of her shots and updates. She hates getting her temperature taken. Poor baby!
Happy Hump Day and feel free to send me any questions or concerns!
