I often get asked the question, “what do you eat?” Well, I am here to tell you I eat a lot! I love food, especially yummy, sweet treats in moderation (moderation is the key word)!! I am always on the go and can find myself being unprepared while out and about. On days where I lack in the preparation department, I find myself searching for quick, go to items that are healthy and delicious. My go to fast food options are Subway turkey breast sandwich and Chik-fil-A’s grilled chicken sandwich. Add a side of fruit and you are set! I also have a love for protein bars! These can be a quick fix when you are in a bind. There are several types of protein bars to choose from, some better than others. Some say they are glorified candy bars and while I do agree, they satisfy my sweet tooth and are a better option than cakes and cookies!
A glimpse into what I typically eat in a day (this varies depending on how much time I have):
Breakfast: protein pancakes or egg white wrap plus fruit
Snack: peanut butter and jelly sandwich, fruit or cheese
Snack: protein shake or chicken breast
Lunch: chicken breast sandwich or a wrap, plus yogurt and fruit, or Subway
Snack: chicken breast sandwich or a protein shake
Dinner: turkey burger with cheese, salad, corn on the cob or fish tacos
Snack: protein shake plus almonds or peanut butter
I love sandwiches, as you can tell! They are a quick and easy option for busy moms like me who are constantly on the go! One thing that helps me out tremendously is to cook a big amount of chicken in advance and bag it up in Ziplocs. It makes it easy to grab a bag and head out the door!
So, there you have it! I hope this helps you out with meeting your weight loss goals!
