Hi friends! How’s the day going? I hope you’re having a lovely morning. The weather has cooled down here quite a bit and I can feel the tiniest bit of fall in the air. P and I are taking the dogs for a walk together and going to make a stop to the library; her favorite place! I’m also excited to catch a Peloton class later this afternoon.

For today’s post, I thought I’d share a full day of meals now that I’m on the macro counting train. So many people have asked me for more meal ideas that are balanced in macros throughout the day, so I’m sharing some of my go-tos. Please keep in mind that I’m not a Registered Dietitian and if you need help with an individualized eating plan, please see out an RD in your area.

This particular day was a moderate carb day and I alternate the amounts of carbs throughout the week according to my workout. It was a super sweaty Orangetheory power day.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, spinach, grain-free tortillas, salsa, and coffee with MCT oil and collagen

Breakfast

I usually have breakfast when I’m back from school drop-off so I have time to put everything together. In the morning, it’s everything in my power to get the girls fed and the 3 of us dressed and out the door.

Mid-morning snack: Vanilla Silk almond milk yogurt alternative with a chocolate peanut butter protein ball (recipe coming soon!)

The Silk almond milk yogurt alternative has become one of my fave healthy snack options. I love it for a quick bite, and I’ll either eat it on its own (the flavors are amazing!) or crumble granola or a protein ball into it. I also enjoy it with fresh fruit, on top of waffles (try it- so good), or the plain flavor in tuna salad or drizzled on tacos instead of sour cream.

Silk almondmilk

Here’s why it’s amazing:

It’s gluten-free, vegan, carrageenan-free (this is huge because it can be tough to find dairy-free almond milk products without this ingredient), and soy-free. My friends at Silk offered to hook you up with a coupon code to try it if you haven’t already! Here’s the link to grab it. The vanilla flavor is my very favorite. It tastes like real vanilla bean (not weird or artificial at all) and I’ve also popped it in the freezer for a bit to enjoy more like frozen yogurt.

Lunch: salad with lots of fresh veggies, tuna, avocado oil dressing, and a big slice of sourdough from Barrio Bread

This week I actually meal prepped! It’s made such a huge difference to have fresh chopped veggies in the fridge ready to go.

Dinner: rice with edamame, salmon, and mango salsa

This is one of the few dinners I can count on the girls eating right now. I just pan-sear the salmon with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and garlic powder and then bake it. While it’s baking, I cook wild rice in the Instant Pot, add greens at the last minute to wilt, and top everything with mango salsa. 

Dessert: mug of tea, a couple of pieces of chocolate, and a book in bed

Eating chocolate before bed used to keep me awake… and now, pretty much nothing can keep me awake at night. (You know, besides small children haha.)

So, tell me friends: what are some of your go-to snacks right now? Do you meal prep each week, or not so much?
