WIAW: What I Ate Wednesday

Lifestyle | Recipes
June 15, 2016

Hey there friends! It’s hump day or day 3 of being all about that fit, healthy, and strong life! (Only 53 more to go in this 8 week “Challenge” I’m doing with myself..LOL)

I’ve been asked about my eating habits, while trying to lose the post-preg weight, by a couple of people so I figured I’d bring back the “WIAW” posts to shine a light on my daily eats. If you follow me on Instagram you already see a lot of my eats, so I’m going to go beyond that and show you basically everything I’ve been eating.

As a nursing momma, who is chasing 2 other toddlers and working out,  I don’t count calories. In my opinion, if you’re eating whole foods, calories don’t matter. Is “too many” veggies even a thing?
Also, as a nursing momma, I incorporate good fats (avocado, nuts) and good carbs (oatmeal, sweet potatoes) to help with my breast milk supply.

It’s all about whole foods and other than these 4 simple guidelines, I’m eating whatever I want.

Eat every 2-3 hours.
No refined sugar
No white carbs 
Very Minimal processed foods (I understand chicken sausages, veggie burgers, etc are processed) 

Here’s a look into my daily eats. 

7am Breakfast: 1 slice of seeded toast and 2 eggs. Coffee with almond milk.
10am Snack: sliced carrots & cucumbers
1pm Lunch: Salad Beast topped with a scope of chicken and cucumber salad (Salad Beast = Huge)
3pm Snack: Almonds & Grapefruit
6pm Dinner: Broccoli, chicken, sweet potato bowl
7pm Snack “Dessert”: Peach

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescapes

While my house may scream “It’s Christmas” by mid-November, I always have a table or two dedicated to Thanksgiving. I want the table to be simple, welcoming, and just as pretty as the Thanksgiving foods on it. I don’t use the traditional Thanksgiving colors, as I like...

All the Details on our Kitchen Remodel

I want to start off and let you know I had to google what the difference between a ‘remodel’ and ‘renovation’ is for this post. A remodel is making changes to the structure, while a renovation is more like a restoration. Now that we’re all in the know on that, I’m...

Toasted S’more Espresso Martini

Toasted S’more Espresso Martini

Espresso Martinis have taken this generation by the hand and led us to a land where we don’t have to choose between coffee and alcohol on a night out on the town. LOL! It’s a drink that makes heads turn and the entire table will order one as soon as they’re mentioned....
