Finding yourself home all day reallll close to that fridge of yours? Ya, same. I’ve been trying to intermittent fast (this is working for me!) which means I start eating at 12 PM or after. The longer I’ve tried this the less hungry I find myself when I wake up (but I haven’t been working out at 6 AM) so I’m not sure that will last when I go back to my daily routine. BUT, I do find myself eating more after dinner because I’m still hungry. I’m working on this method. Dessert is just…my life.
While trying to avoid grocery stores at busy times and other stores, I go in once a week and buy a few items. Half of the store is usually out of what I want, so this week I purchased:
1.5 pounds of salmon (my local grocery store was completely out of chicken)
Seafood seasoning (going to need to come up with a creative way to not get sick of salmon here)
1.5 lbs of spinach
1 onion, brussel sprouts, mini potatoes
Feta cheese & olives
Dark chocolate (Eating Evolved & Lily’s)
Organic chicken sausage
Turkey (deli meat)
NOW TO WHAT I’M EATING!
Starting around 10/11 AM: Coffee with almond milk creamer or ghee
If I’m super hungry when I wake up, which I haven’t been this week, I’ll eat Siggi’s yogurt with Purely Elizabeth grain-free granola (I had this last week)
or, some pineapple (I had this around 11 AM today) with my coffee pre-workout
Tuna salad with cranberries, Sir Kensington’s mayo, celery and apple or whatever I have in the fridge. I either put this on top of spinach or on Trader Joe’s crisps or the Siete tortillas. My friend Natasha inspired me to do this with lettuce cups too, and I’m tuna OBSESSED now. It’s the easiest way to have lunch when you’re in a rush or need protein, but too lazy to spend time in the kitchen!
Turkey roll-ups (Siete tortilla but you can use any) and I spread Sir Kensington’s mayo and avocado on it. Then I roll it up and pair with sliced apple/celery. Or, some dark chocolate!
Grilled salmon, brussel sprouts and cauliflower rice (I prepped this all yesterday so I have lunch everyday for 7 days) and I put coconut aminos on the top. Today, I put some avocado on the bowl too.
Gluten-free pasta/ cauliflower pasta with pesto & goat cheese
Wine, but ran out. 🙁
Grilled salmon with more cauliflower rice and potatoes (yesterday I added ghee to the pan and my potatoes came out AMAZING)
Tuna salad with cranberries, Sir Kensington’s mayo, celery and apple or whatever I have in the fridge. I either put this on top of spinach or on Trader Joe’s crisps or the Siete tortilla
Here’s where it gets interesting because I don’t even know if I’m hungry when I’m snacking but since I’m sitting at my desk and I’m working… my mind wanders to the next room over and that’s the kitchen… so if you’re snacking, just eat healthy ones!
Celery sticks with cream cheese/ peanut butter
More pineapple or strawberries/apple
Turkey roll-ups (turkey/ham and then roll them up with mayo or pesto, no bread or tortilla for a snack)
Apple with peanut butter
