What I ate? #wia?
What happened to what I wore? Ha! If you follow my instagram stories, then you’d notice that I posted all my meals yesterday. #hellafoodpics
I’ve been asked over and over about what I eat while on BRIK. I’m currently right smack dab in the middle of a sugar cleanse, which seems to be a huge topic lately. The question I get on a daily:
What the fuck do you eat?
Ha. Food is always a topic when I’m dieting or cleansing. ALL that’s on my mind is what I’m going to eat next. My girlfriend Sarah and I email/snapchat our sugar-free meals to each other too…lol. The struggle is real.
So, I documented yesterday. Sorry for all you peeps who could give a shit.
Did you know that yesterday was ditch day? I will not be attending ditch day. Not yesterday, not today, not tomorrow. I got goals!!!
First thing first, I start each day with a shot of apple cider vinegar (ACV) + a cup of hot lemon water. Even the weekends. I swear you get used to the ACV taste after a while. I don’t mind it at all anymore.
It’s ALWAYS the same. Egg over easy. 1/4 cup roasted sweet potato. 1 cup spinach. Salsa or tapatio. 1 tablespoon almond cheese. 2 slices avocado.
I literally could eat this everyday and never get sick of it.
I wish I could go back to rotation smoothies in the breakfast game, but I burnt myself out BIG TIME. I decided that after my sugar cleanse, I’m going to try again.
I truly believe in the weight watcher rule: “if you bite it, you write it” or in my case, log it. I swear my My Fitness Pal. And Mallory, my Kaia BRIK coach can view my food log and give me feedback. (ignore the gin + beers Mal)
I’ve started a really, really bad habit of stopping at Starbucks (almost every morning) for a grande black pike. I use my mobile app and either stop after the gym or have my sidekick run in and grab it for me. They now know Bay by her name. All bad. Maybe when I’ve used all my Starbucks gift cards and have to start paying out of my own pocket, I will go back to homemade coffee? We shall see.
Did I mention that I LOVE eggs? If I were stuck on a deserted island, I would take chickens with me. Cant live without eggs.
And hot water with lemon is my new jam. Too damn cold for ice water.
Not pictured is the humus, carrots + celery I had in the afternoon. ANNNDDD the 2 Michelob Ultra Lights last night. You guys, It’s SUGAR-FREE! My Mom discovered it and bought me some. My Mom is the SHIT!! Ok, back to the beer – I had an Omega Nu meeting last night. There was the most amazing food + dessert + wine. So much wine. I could drool. 10 more days, 10 more days. I enjoyed my beers. Kinda.
The other meal that I could live off of, burrito bowls.
Go to Trader Joe’s right now. Or tomorrow. Or this weekend. Go to their frozen foods section and find the frozen brown rice. I’m not a big fan of brown rice, except this specific kind. It too is sugar-free. It comes in a box with 3 pouches of rice. You pop them in the microwave for 3 minutes and you’re ready to eat.
I seasoned my ground turkey with cumin + chili powder + garlic + onion + pepper.
I made Skinny Taste Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken over the weekend and was trying to come up with ways to use it up. I served it burrito bowl style. Lettuce wrapped. Over a salad. And stuffed in a bell pepper. This recipe is my go-to crock pot meal. Bay loves it wrapped in tortillas with lots of cheese. Yummm.
I’ve also been so much better about checking my macros pie chart throughout the day…
You can eat crappy, non-healthy food all day and still stay within your daily calories. Not that I’ve done that, or anything!! Ok, maybe a few times 🙂
Anyway, I try to keep my ass in check.
That’s it, my food for the day. I felt satisfied throughout the day!
Since I’m currently obsessed with ALL things sugar-free healthy food, please share your favorite healthy lunches + snacks + meals. Share your tips + tricks. I love seeing what others are eating. It motivates me to think outside the box and try new things.
Here’s a shot of Bay’s lunchbox. Peeps are worried I have my kiddo on a diet. Relax. She likes to eat healthy. But, I’m all for packing her some goodies too!
Happy hump day! Come back tomorrow…Bailey is sharing her new chocolate chip cookie recipe. Completely unhealthy, but when Bay wants to be on the blog, Bay gets on the blog 🙂
