It was requested on YouTube that I do another video featuring what I eat in a typical day. While no two days are the same really, I decided to share with you one of my cleaner days with my viewers. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already for new videos every week!
A few people asked how many calories in total did I consume and to be honest, I hate counting. I always try to do it but I’m not trying to lose weight, I just don’t care. Also, some people commented already on YouTube that it wasn’t a lot of food. If I eat a lot the day before, the next day I just am not as hungry. So yes, while this was enough for me on Monday, that doesn’t necessarily mean it would again the following week.
I love portion controlled trail mix and Perfect Fit protein powder to throw in my Tone It Up shaker water bottle. Quick and portable are the way to go when preparing to pack your snacks for the day.
Today, I brought with me the same snacks as in the video but instead of the protein bar, I have a Mini Babybel Mozzarella to eat on my walk home after Bar Method class. The 6 g of protein help repair my muscles so that I can get stronger and recover faster. A fast recovery is important so that your muscles can repair themselves and be ready for another workout tomorrow! While my walk home is just 20 minutes, I make dinner when I get home and don’t end up eating until 8 pm usually, which is often over an hour later. To best utilize post workout nutrition, it should be consumed without 20-30 minutes after you finish. The Babybel is just 50 calories so it doesn’t spoil my dinner like big protein bars.
Both days have been gluten free as well, unintentionally. I don’t tag my meals as gluten free but as a part of the Udi’s Gluten Free community, I have been become more aware of how important it can be for someone with celiac disease. If you eat a gluten free diet, check out the community on Udi’s Gluten Free website for advice, recipes, meal ideas and the latest news.
