So, I meant to do a better job of sharing my eats from the Reset Challenge on Instagram or on here, and it just hasn’t happened. Caring for a new baby is all-encompassing! But I did my best yesterday to capture my day for wiaw.
We’re just about half way through and it’s going pretty well. I’m eating way too many nuts and spoonfuls of nut butter per day, but at least it doesn’t leave me feeling gross like overdoing the sugar does. The ladies on the Facebook page have shared some awesome recipes and are really supporting each other- I love it!
I almost always start my day with a banana and a few scoops of almond butter. This has been my go-to pre workout snack, and is still my favorite.
It was a rainy day yesterday so I stayed inside and did a Jillian’s dvd in the basement. Breakfast part one yesterday was two eggs (plus half of my daughter’s leftover eggs) and pear.
Part two was muesli in almond milk with a scoop of protein powder (plus seconds – I was hungry!)
Leftovers are easiest for lunch. I topped rice and arugula with chicken-avocado salad, roasted brussel sprouts, carrots, feta and olives.
And followed it up with a peach. And some pecans and raisins. And some tea. Finally my belly was satisfied.
After L got home from preschool, we had another snack: apples and peaches with cinnamon.
We pulled out the rainbow trout and used this Cilantro Lime Taco recipe to make delicious tacos. I could eat these every night! Mine were over rice… I’m staying strong with the no wheat, no corn part of the challenge.
We also made kale chips from the kale growing in our garden. These helped to replace the tortilla chips for me… I wanted something crispy and salty, too!
My post dinner treat were two of these date-nut balls.
A few hours later, I finished the night with a smoothie. I am still eating constantly- the breast feeding hunger has not leveled off yet!
What’s your favorite salty snack?
For those of you on the reset, how is it going?
