Good Morning Everyone! With another Tuesday behind us, that only means one thing… another What I Ate
Wednesday Tuesday post.
When I was putting together my post for today, I noticed that I still do have some areas where I can approve on with my meals (calorie wise) to help with reaching my end goal. I’ll be completely honest with all of you, I felt disappointed within myself for not realizing these simple fixes before (#freEdom).
As I got to thinking though, why sit here and feel sorry for myself when I HAVE the control to do whatever I please. So for this What I Ate Wednesday, I’ll be showing each meal but also writing a few ideas that can increase the calorie intake.
Meal #1: Smoothie. In the mix: 1 frozen banana, 1 tbsp. peanut butter, 1 cup milk, 1/2 scoop cinnamon bun protein powder, & cinnamon.
How I can Increase: 2 tbsp. peanut butter, or one full scoop of protein powder.
Meal #2: Eggs. In the Mix: 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, orange peppers, tomato, slice of cheese & and apple on the side.
Meal #3: Salad. In the mix: Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumber, Brussel Sprouts, Tuna, Salsa & Mustard. I also had popcorn on the side.
How I can Increase: Add some sort of cheese on top of salad. Have another piece of fruit on the side.
Meal #4: Yogurt Mess. In the mix: Yogurt (which I froze for an hour), 2 tbsp. chocolate pb2, and frozen grapes
Meal #5: Using leftover Thanksgiving ham. In the mix: Biscuits (cut in half and topped with a light coat of butter), ham & cheese melted on top. On the side we enjoyed steamed broccoli.
To be honest, I’m pretty happy with this meal.
Meal #6: Un-pictured protein dessert. In the mix: 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder (all frozen for an hour), and pretzels for dipping.
Again, I was very pleased with this meal as well.
Yup, so there’s my meals from Tuesday, November 27th. I may or may not of had a few cookies before bed as well :). I’d love to hear some other suggestions from you on increasing my meals if you’d like to share.
