Food Diary Day 5: brown rice cake delight, protein and cardio day
Another day and more meals to share with you. I’ve been getting some good feedback on sharing my daily foods with you and my screen shots of MyFitnessPal so you can see exactly how much each item measures out in calories, carbs, fats, protein and sugar. I think it helps readers to see what is in each food and how you can plan out your day so you don’t feel like you are starving to remain under your calorie goals. Right now mine are at 1800 and I aim to eat a high protein diet but also a ration of fats and carbs as well. As you can see from my breakfast through until lunch I hit about 850 calories with the meals below. I also threw in a Quest Bar (Apple Pie flavor) at the end of the day before my dinner. I didn’t log that yet but you can factor in the extra 180 calories for that.
So here are the meals I packed for work: a BodyTech Chocolate Mint Protein Shake with almond milk, grilled chicken with vegetable stir fry, cottage cheese/peanut butter and berries bowl, a brown rice cake with bananas and peanut butter.
My protein shake of choice right now, I feel like I am on repeat in my last few posts for my meal logs – BodyTech Whey Tech Pro 24 in the flavor Chocolate Mint. I add 1 cup of almond milk (unsweetened) and ice and water.
For lunch I did what I had yesterday which is grilled chicken breast cut up in strips, some vegetables and some soyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s which comes out like a nice stir fry.
For my mid day snack I do some low sodium, low fat cottage cheese (1/2 cup) with 1 scoop of White Chocolate Dream Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter and some cinnamon.
I have to admit that I am obsessed with the Peanut Butter & Co peanut butters and bought these two bad boys last night at my local Walmart. I love them and they taste amazing!
Buy your peanut butter here – YUM!
So this morning I spread the Dark Chocolate Dreams on my brown rice cake and sliced up a half of a banana. This was such a nice treat in the morning after I did my cardio (which was just a 25 minute HIIT treadmill session.) My legs were sore from leg day on Monday so running helped me to loosen them up and get rid of some of the soreness I was feeling. I was also able to burn
