Full Day of Eating w/ Macros Listed!
In this blog post, I'm going to go through a full day of my usual foods. I'm not the most creative person ever when it comes to food and I can eat pretty much the same things everyday without getting tired of it.
These are the things that I've recently been loving and it'll probably switch up in the next few weeks.. or not. Today is one of my higher carb days out of the week (Tues/Fri) which means my fats are a little lower, so if I can opt for lower fat options I'm going to do that today.
Breakfast - 7.5f/63c/16p
I have to have creamer in my coffee. Right now my favorite is Coffee Mate's salted caramel chocolate. Since I said I was going to be opting for lower fat options, I chose 1.5 servings of the southwestern egg beaters instead of the usual jumbo egg I use for my breakfast wrap. Liquid eggs.. you're probably thinking gross, right? Well I'm still alive and kicking so I don't think the 2x per week I use them is hurting me.
The wrap I use is from Trader Joe's and they've got 7g of fiber. Last but not least, I like using the Better Oat's brand of 100cal pack oatmeal because I LOVE the texture. It's not a lot in the packet (30g), so I add 20g of Quaker quick oats in it for more volume. I also added 60g banana into my oatmeal once cooked.
Snack - 3.5f/60c/11p
Icon Meals protein popcorn is probably the most addicting (and expensive) flavored popcorn on the market. It's advertised as protein popcorn because there's 10g of protein per serving.. but let's be real, this stuff is candy. I had 1 serving of the popcorn (60g), 205g of Ambrosia apple which is the BEST apple (yes, better than honey crisp), and a High Brew cold brew coffee.
Lunch - 6.2f/44.5c/35p
I've been on a Siggi's yogurt kick lately. The first time I ever tried it, I thought it tasted bitter and weird but it grew on me. I use 300g siggi's vanilla yogurt and 1.25 serving of Nature's Path dark chocolate and peanut butter granola.
Half serving raisins. Pretty lame snack, but I wanted some quick digesting carbs before my training session.
Post workout -1.5f/51c/24p
My post workout shake includes one serving of peanut butter cup PeScience protein powder and 2 scoops of Glycofuse unflavored carb powder. The reason I use Glycofuse is because it's made with highly branched cyclic dextrin. I prefer this to maltodextrin, sugar, glucose, or dextrose because of it's low osmolarity and high molecular weight. Cyclic Dextrin spends less time in your stomach and gets sent to your muscles quicker. Perfect for post workout when your muscles need it the most!
Dinner - 25f/72c/40p
Annnnd dinner! Shown is 5oz of 96/4 ground beef, 275g jasmine rice, and 275g zucchini/yellow squash. Also shown but not seen because it's melted, 23g of kerry gold butter which is the BOMB. If you've never tried it, you need to step your butter game up asap.
Well, that concludes my day of eating! I ended with a whopping 47f/315c/128p. I was 7g off of my protein.. slacker. This is what my days usually look like for the most part. I switch my snacks up sometimes but recently I've been eating almost exactly this everyday. On days that aren't my high carb days, the portions are just a little smaller.
