What I Eat In A Day #1

Friday, 17 March 2017

Hello, Everyone!

As a way of shaking up things a little on my blog, I've decided to switch from Daily Blogs to a What I Eat In A Day series. You all know how much I love sharing the foods I'm trying and I never eat the same thing week to week (or even day to day.) And you guys seem to really enjoy when I do share the healthy and not-so-healthy meals I come up with. If you're looking for food ideas, then hopefully you will love this series! 

This was actually a VERY healthy day of eating for me. Usually I'm not so good, but we had a great chat with our coach this morning about nutrition and it has me feeling more motivated. I've been feeling great with my training lately now that my knee is finally healing up nicely, and nutrition plays such an important in performing well each day. Obviously I'm still avoiding processed foods, but I'm still working on eating less carbs and having protein with every meal. It's all about building good habits and seeing what works best for my body.


I always start my day with a 6.30am CrossFit class. We were pre-warned about the workout today and it did not disappoint! It was a 30 min EMOM (every minute on the minute) of:

1. 16 kettle bell swings (16kg)
2. 12 burpees
3. 200m run (I rowed)

It was tough, but I got through the whole thing without scaling back any of the reps. I worked on my breathing through each round and found a way to steady it and get oxygen to my muscles. It was the type of workout that required a lot of mental strength too, so it was good to learn to push through tough reps. Feeling proud of myself today!

Meal One: Breakfast

No surprises here! I'm having my staple of oats, cinnamon, banana, blueberries, seed energy mix, and some walnuts for omega 3. Such a great combination and I know it will keep me full for a while. 

Snack: Runner's Muffin

We have a new cookbook at home that's designed with nutrition for people who run. This muffin is for an early morning go-to and I've been looking forward to trying one all week. We freeze them so they're ready whenever we need a healthy snack I heated it up slightly, spread a little coconut oil on top, and it was amazing! I will try and upload the recipe for you guys soon.

Lunch: Sweet Potato & Chickpea Salad

I went out with my Mum to one of our favorite cafes, Park Ranger. Usually I'm tempted to go for a bagel, but since I'm avoiding bad carbs during the day I was craving a nice salad instead. 
This was so much more filling than I thought. It made me feel good to get some greens on my plate and the sauces on this were so good. 

Snack: Watermelon Slices & Baked Vegetable Chips 

I was still full from lunch, so I only felt like a small snack before work. Watermelon is always great for hydration, plus it beats the sugar cravings! We found these chips at our veggie store and decided to try them. I'm a big fan of this kind of snack and these were super-good. 

Dinner: Tuna salad with boiled eggs 

I wanted something easy for dinner that was full of protein and low carb, so this was perfect. I boiled the eggs before I left for work, then added them to a plate of green salad mix and a 90 gram can of tuna. For the dressing, I just mixed lemon juice, sweet white wine vinegar, and sesame oil. I topped it with some pumpkin seeds for extra goodness. It went perfectly with the tuna and I found the whole meal filling. Great option after a busy day!

Hopefully these posts will keep me on a great meal plan and I already have recipes I'd like to share with you.
Let me know what you think of this series and anything else you would like to see!
