As my blog takes off I will get more consistent with the habit of posting!!!! I promise.
My food intake has not changed much in the last 7 weeks. I try to modify some of it each week to keep it fresh, but with the timed nutrition and container groupings it is hard to do. (That's a topic for another blog) Not to mention I eat a plant based diet!!!! Here is this weeks menu.
My first meal of the day is a snack before working out. It's one of my favorites! Roasted butternut squash with cinnamon and coconut oil for my veggie and then black beans for my protein. I have posted the recipe in the Nutrition Tab.
My post snack is Tofu with Apple and nut butter.
I prepare the Tofu basically the same way every week for this snack. See the Nutrition Tab for the Recipe. A small Fuji Apple with a teaspoon of almond butter to square out the snack. Protein is important after a workout.
My workout block ends with a a small salad of Edamame, Spinach and Cucumber (See Nutrition Tab - Salads for recipe) with freshly squeezed lemon and ½ cup oatmeal with a bit of Stevia.
My lunch this week is the Tempeh Sweet Potato over Spinach. This is probably my favorite new meal!
See Nutrition Tab - Entrees for recipe. I think the sweet potato compliments the tempeh I drizzle a bit of EVOO on top and it fills me up!
Next up, I eat a snack of Steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower with Quinoa. I added a little Balsamic Vinegar for some flavor. To be honest this is the meal I struggle with everyday. I have been eating the steamed veggies for a few weeks and I am pretty much over them so I need to change it up.
I just use the steamed veggies in the bag and cook Quinoa as directed. ½ quinoa, 1 cup veggies. A teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.
Meal six… or rather a snack, is my homemade hummus - Which I love!!! And veggies. See Nutrition Tab - Snack for hummus. ¼ cup hummus with 1 cup of veggies…. Yum!
Last meal of the day is the one I look forward to… my shake. Shakeology is just awesome. More on that in another blog. But I like to drink it at night because it helps fight cravings.
This week I have tropical strawberry, chocolate, vanilla with in water, with a fruit. I have been putting my veggie in my shake and adding chia seeds or coconut flakes. Every night it’s a new creation! If I don’t put the veggie in the shake I will make a small salad with dressing.
On the weekends I have Tofu Scramble instead of my Tempeh Salad. I will share that recipe soon!!!!
