Last Week’s Snackfest
I don’t know about you guys but I could not be happier it’s Friday! Crazy week finally coming to an end. Looking back at my eats from last week apparently it was a snackfest. Which is funny because I just read this article about how American’s are snacking more….I definitely fell into that category last week! It’s funny some weeks I eat three square meals and hardly snack AT ALL…. and some days/weeks are like last week….
From left to right
- – BF burrito with eggs, cheese and potatoes (ate the inside skipped the tortilla)
- – Chicken Sausage Salad with a piece of broccoli cheddar oatmeal bake
- – Work served cake for July birthdays
- – string cheese
- – carrots
- – piece of Oatmeal Crust Breakfast Pizza
- – green smoothie (1T PB, giant handful of spinach, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 date, 1 scoop Vanilla 100% grassfed Formulx Recovery Protein Powder<—affiliate link, 1 cup almond milk, ice)
- Leftover burrito from the Original Burrito Co.
- snacks = carrots, blueberries, mixed nuts
- lunch= chicken salad
- dinner= quesadilla with deli chicken, cheese and sour cream and a bunch of slices of cheese as I was making it
- Dessert= spoonful of double chocolate protein pudding and dark chocolate
This day was super weird because I was REALLY HUNGRY all morning… like ravenous hungry… like someone had flipped on a survival mode switch. In the past this would have irritated the crap out of me, but instead I used it as an excuse to get Chipotle. If there is one thing I know that will put a stop to insane hunger it’s Chipotle!
- Starbucks feta egg white wrap and skinny caramel macchiato w/ an extra shot
- random snacks at our meeting- cereal, trail mix, and fruit
- Chiptole (chicken, tomatoes, guac, brown rice, salsa)
- lefotver salmon and green beans
- Starbucks americano and reduced fat turkey bacon egg white sandwich
- fruit and trail mix snack
- cereal snack
- subway chicken salad
- quest banana muffin protein bar
- blueberries, honey, and cottage cheese
- strawberry shake (Vanilla 100% grassfed Formulx Recovery Protein Powder<–affiliate link, almond milk, frozen strawberries)
- half a banana with almond butter before workout
- quest bar in the car to work
- half a banana with almond butter at work
- cottage cheese + blueberries + almonds + honey
- lots of granola straight out of the jar… so addicting
- whole foods goodies- broccoli and sushi (note I was literally so hungry by the time I got this that I was eating the broccoli straight out of the box in the car on the way home. You know how sometimes you see people taking a sip of something or snacking while driving? If you had looked over you would have seen me munching on cooked broccoli. Yep.)
- peanut butter cookie and almond milk
Luckily I was pretty active last week enough to cancel out some of the snacking… or maybe I was snacking because my activity level was increasing…. either way here is what I did….
Sunday- 4.5 mile run w/ Mr. Hungry
Monday- 45 minute Total Impact Nike Trainer Workout
Tuesday- Physical Therapy
Wednesday- 5 minute warm up, 15 minute upper body weights, 25 min HIIT Treadmill (covered 3 miles)
What about you? Do you ever have days or weeks you find yourself to be more in a small meals/snack mood or do you typically stick to the three meals a day schedule?
