Even though life isn’t completely back to normal, I decided to try to get my diet back to normal. I bought plenty of fruits and veggies to get me feeling good. Recently I read an article about how nutrition affects your mood so I wanted a week of good foods.
This week I have a varied schedule. Some days I work until 12:30 and some days I work 12:30-5:30. I am going to try to keep my eating schedule consistent throughout the week.
- Vital Proteins protein powder
- Nuts ‘N More cookie butter
- Brussel sprouts
- Spaghetti squash
- Romaine lettuce
- Iceberg lettuce
This week I will be having protein shakes for breakfast. I’m still loving the convenient protein paks I found a couple weeks ago. I will be mixing the protein powder with an almond coconut milk blend.
For lunch I will be having a smoothie. Stay tuned for my smoothie guide in a couple days along with my smoothie recipe. I am still waiting on one of the ingredients to come in. My smoothie contains frozen pineapple, yogurt, spinach, oats, and Vital Proteins collagen powder.
You could buy frozen pineapple, or do like I did and freeze your own. It is important to freeze the pineapple on a sheet tray first to keep it from freezing into a big chunk. Once the pineapple is frozen you can put it in a more space friendly container.
For dinner I will be eating grilled chicken, brussel sprouts, and spaghetti squash hash browns. Check out the recipe for the spaghetti squash HERE. I needed a break after having rice for a couple of weeks.
I always get hungry between meals, so I made sure to plan ahead with healthy snacks. I have plenty of fruit, ingredients for cold pressed juice, apples and dip, and a yummy healthy indulgence. Stay tuned this week for the recipe for the peanut butter and jelly cookies I will be making.
