I have been getting a ton of questions on what my daily meals look like and the truth is everyday is different for me but I do tend to stick to complex carbs in the morning and lean proteins with veggies for lunch and dinner. If I get hungry in the afternoon, I make sure to have a snack that is packed with fiber and protein such as vegetable crudités with hummus. With some days being busier than others, I might be eating out more or eating on-the-go and I like to always be prepared. If I know I am going to have a day of travel ahead, I make sure to pack healthy snacks in advance. Some of my favorite foods to pack are boiled eggs, seaweed snacks, apple, power bars like Raw Rev, and a variation of my favorite GG Cracker Sandwiches.

What I Eat In A Day
Overnight Chia Seed Pudding – This recipe is ideal to prep from the night before and grab it as you are heading out the door! Chia seeds a superfood filled with omega-3’s, fiber and protein which will keep you full and energized.
Green Salad With Quinoa, Asparagus & Avocado – Quinoa is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids. Even though it is from a seed of a plant, quinoa is also a complex carb. Although it is a healthier carb, make sure you eat it in moderation if your goal is to lose weight. Did you know that just 1 cup of quinoa is equivalent to almost 3 slices of bread? I bet most of you didn’t, so just be mindful next time you have it if you are on a weight loss journey.
Organic Seaweed – Seaweed sheets are an easy pre-portioned on-the-go snack that I love to have on days where I might be craving something salty like chips. Even though seaweed is low in calorie, carbs, and fat, it is filled with nutrients and vitamins like vitamin A & C, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and more! I really enjoy the gimMe brand. Just make sure you don’t go overboard and limit yourself to one pack a day since they do tend to be high in sodium.
Spaghetti Squash With Meatballs – This is a simple dinner I like to whip up on busy weekdays. I do LOVE pasta but not for everyday, and spaghetti squash is a great healthy alternative. This meal is pure comfort food without all the unwanted calories and carbs!
