MY DAY ON A PLATE

Hiya loves! Sharing some food snaps + a glimpse into what I eat on a daily basis, giving a few examples of some of my favorite foods that I rotate thru to fuel my body from breakfast, to lunch, dinner & snacks in between....
What I eat changes based on my work schedule, travel, workouts, hormones, rest days, cardio and/or strength workouts vs. yoga, etc...

BREAKFAST

SMOOTHIE BOWLS. either a green or fruit smoothie bowl, that typically involves 1-2 frozen bananas, plant based vanilla protein powder, and I recently switched to making smoothie bowls with water beacuse with all the sweetness from the fruit, you really don't need to use almond milk (or milk of your choice). I love to add fresh berries + superfoods like chia seeds, hemp seeds and coconut flakes as toppings!
EGGS. fried egg (in coconut oil), soft boiled eggs or scrambled eggs. I LOVE eggs, you guys! I typically match the "egg of the day" up with perhaps some avocado toast on a slice of my favorite Udi's GF Millet-Chia Bread, or simply 1/2 an avo. Eggs + a bowl of fruit is another favorite of mine. Or an omelette made with greens (organic spinach or arugala) + goat cheese. #YUM
GOAT YOGURT + FRUIT BOWL. Another favorite brekkie option of mine is a big bowl of yogurt + fresh fruits & berries - I love & eat goat yogurt only. I usually add a sprinkling of cinnamon and some type of superfood like chia's or hemp seeds.
OATMEAL. 1-2 times a week I'll add in a bowl of oats for some healthy, complex carbs. I like to eat oats on a tough workout day like boxing or a leg day. 


LUNCH

SALADS. Nearly every day, I make & take a salad to eat for lunch on the go. Its super simple to pack a salad in a medium sized tupperware for a clean meal no matter where you have to be. For me, this is between clients! 
QUINOA VEGGIE SALAD.  just as it sounds, quinoa + loads of veggies. this is a great pre-workout meal...gives me loads of energy. I just have to make sure I eat at least 1.5 hours before my workout since quinoa is a bit heavier on the tummy.


DINNER

FISH + VEG & SALAD.  salmon & tuna are 2 favorites. simply seared, baked or poached along side a veggie like asparagus
PORK TENDERLOIN + ROASTED SWEET POTATOES & SALAD. one of my favorite dinners is a lean pork tenderloin + my roasted sweet potato wedges and a salad full of greens & raw veggies. This is a great recovery dinner after a tough workout! :)
CHICKEN & SALAD. Several nights a week, I love to make organic chicken breasts in the pan + a giant salad full of greens & veggies & goat cheese. Dressing is always a bit of olive oil, apple cider vinegar + sea salt & pepper.


SNACKS
GoMacro Bar, Pure Bar, KIND Bar.
Apple + Raw, Unsalted Nuts or Seeds | Walnuts, Cashews, Almonds, Pepitas, Sunflower Seeds
Peanut Butter Banana Fingers | slice banana in half, lengthwise, and add PB! :) 
Hard Boiled Egg + Apple


DESSERT
I have such a sweet tooth, guys! 

I eat fruit like, every single night...cherries, berries, organic frozen mango are some of my favorites! Add a drizzle of pure maple syrup & a pinch of cinnamon. Delish!
NICE CREAM. Frozen bananas + a splash of almond milk in the food processor. SOOOO GOOD!!
Dark Chocolate

I say this all the time, but I honestly feel like I can't say it enough....
Always (always) listen to your body, love & fuel your body with wholesome foods that make you feel energetic, healthy & happy.
