Week 4: Day 5

Feb. 12, 2015

Today was a tough one. I don’t know if it is the weather or the impending hell I know this weekend will be, but I am in need of some inspiring motivation. I did find this water bottle and this water bottle and have decided to buy one. Very cute, and I know I need to be drinking more water throughout the day, so I hope it helps.

Breakfast

broc om

Another broccoli omelette. This time with colby jack instead of pepper jack cheese; so exciting. I think I should go back to making my breakfasts ahead of time. It seemed to work better, and I definitely enjoyed them more. The key is finding breakfast recipes I like and are healthy. Any suggestions are welcomed!

Lunch

I hit up that leftover egg and olive (egg salad) from yesterday. It hit the spot again.

Dinner

buf ques after

If you haven’t been able to tell yet, I am a big fan of buffalo, so this is one of my go-to dinners. I made a buffalo chicken quesadilla for dinner and it was spot on. The picture doesn’t do it justice.You can find the recipe here.┬áIt is my three favorite things: easy, quick and tasty.

Week 4: Day 2

Feb. 9, 2015

Another good day is in the books. I felt like I ate healthy, and I went to the gym. Double win. I keep getting hungry throughout the day, which isn’t the best feeling, but I am trying to curb it with some small healthy snacks. I’m trying not to go over board, but man do I love my food.

Breakfast

broccoli omelette

I haven’t made an omelette in ages, so this morning was quite the treat. I made a broccoli, scallion and pepper jack cheese omelette. I softened the broccoli in my pan for a couple minutes before I added the eggs and scallions, and then right at the end I added the cheese. This was a tasty, fresh way to start my morning.

Lunch

ham and smoothie

I felt like I have been eating too many carbs lately, so I decided to forgo the pita for lunch today. Instead, I just heated up my ham with cheese and ate it with a fork. Not the most exciting thing in the world, but I thought it was necessary. I also made a small smoothie with my tropical frozen fruit blend, orange juice, yogurt and chia seeds. It helped fill me up.

Dinner

grilled wrap

Dinner was a rockstar. I tried making cauliflower “mashed potatoes” for the first time, and it wasn’t a complete failure. I boiled the cauliflower for 8 minutes, drained it and added a dash of butter, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I think I added too much milk because they were a little runny. The taste was good though, so I will be trying them again. My main course was a grilled chicken wrap. In my wrap was canned chicken breast with mayo, tomatoes, lettuce and colby jack cheese. I heated both sides in the pan for a few minutes, and I had the perfect golden brown crust on the outside. For whatever reason these wraps are one of my favorite meals, and tonight’s didn’t disappoint.
