Hey guys and welcome to today’s Tasty Tuesday! I can’t believe this is only my second post, but I hope you guys enjoy!
So today I started my day off with my go-to favorite breakfast: A fried egg on a slice of whole wheat toast and a peach flavored yogurt. I’m usually not into having a runny egg yolk but recently it’s been my favorite thing to eat, I can’t believe what I’ve been missing out on for all this time. Also, yogurt has been becoming a staple in my diet. I’m a big fan of the “Light and Fit” brand. It works well with my college budget and is one of the healthier options offered.
I was in a rush today packing my lunch so I had a quick and easy, yet very good turkey and Swiss cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread with some celery and carrots. Honestly, nothing is more satisfying than a nice crisp piece of celery. It sounds weird, and not too appetizing but celery also works really well with peanut butter for some extra protein. This also has been an easy go to snack for me lately.
For a pre workout snack, and fix to my chocolate craving, I had a protein bar. I have a Costco size box of the “Pure Protein” brand. A little tip that helps me is whenever I have a mid day chocolate craving, instead of getting a candy or something, I will usually have a protein bar and it does the trick. Depending on the type they usually have less sugar, carbs, and fat AND much more protein than a candy bar, so that’s a win in my book. I also really like “Luna” bars and “RX” bars; another two really good protein bars to fulfill your sweet tooth.
For dinner, I had zoodles (zucchini noodles) with the rest of my moms homemade meat sauce and a baked potato. I love pasta, but I also love greens, so I think zoodles are a great compromise. Also, a super easy side for any dinner is a potato. I just poke some holes in the potato with a fork, pop it in the microwave for 5-6 minutes, add a little butter with salt and pepper and there ya go, easy and delicious.
Lastly, I finished off my night with the left over banana peanut butter ice cream I made the other day. I added a couple frozen bananas, coconut milk, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and a tablespoon of maple syrup to my blender and it was done. This was honestly really, really good and a great way to end my night with something sweet which is always a must.
That concludes my full day of eating for this fabulous Tuesday. I hope you guys enjoy and have a great rest of your week!
