As a person who has a moderate obsession with health and wellness, I find myself often thinking about the way that I eat, versus the way that other people eat. I wonder if they like to eat the same foods that I do, how many calories they consume, what their preferred carb to fat to protein ratio is... the list goes on and on. Needless to say, if I see a blog post that chronicles what someone eats in the average day, I'm all over it. However, I rarely tackle these posts myself, which I think is a shame. Everyone eats, including me, so why can't I share too? So I got it in my head yesterday to share my noms with you. I tried to take pictures at every meal, but I had to fake one after work, because I forgot to take a picture before I ate. Whoops. Anyhow, here is my day in in food.
6:45am: Coffee. I use coffee creamer, particularly the caramels collection from International Delight. Full of junk, yes. I don't care. Coffee is necessary to my life and continued well-being.
8:15 am: I eat breakfast when I get to work. I usually have the same thing every day, egg beater frittata made with spinach, salsa, and a sprinkle of cheese, and some baked oatmeal. Usually I do a banana-nut oatmeal, but this week I'm going wild and doing cherry almond.
12:15pm: I scarfed down some white chicken chili with greek yogurt and a little shredded cheese before my 1:00 staff meeting. I was in a rush, becauseI had to travel to one of our other offices for the meeting, so this isn't the actual chili... I forgot to take a picture. But imagine this, topped with plain greek yogurt and a sprinkle of cheese, and you're in the right place.
2:30 - 4:00pm: I noshed on the veggies and hummus that were supposed to be part of my lunch, but that I ran out of time to eat at lunch. Yes, I really ate all of that.
7:30pm: Dinnertime! It was chili with sour cream and cheese. Yes, I realize that seems pretty dang similar to my lunch... but they were pretty different in terms of ingredients and flavors.
8:45pm: I'm too far below my calorie allotment for the day, and I'm feeling a little light-headed. Time for something that can pack in some extra calories quickly and easily, but isn't total crap, either. This does it for me every stinking time.
So that is a day in the life of my foods. It all totaled out to about 1,650 calories. My goal each day is 1,800. This girl is not all about starving herself! I cringe when I hear people talk about 1,200 calorie diets... Mostly because I would fall over on the side of the road during a long run or something. Not shown is the 14 glasses of water I also consumed. My co-workers think my constant trips to the bathroom are hilarious.
What do you eat every day?
