Hey guys! Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite meal ideas lately. These are just inspiration, I’m not going to be listing excact portions/calories because that’s not the point. These are simply some healthy meal ideas and unique combos to serve as inspiration for you own meals!
So let’s get started!
My go to breakfast has been an egg white omlette with spinach (topped with reduced sugar ketchup or hot sauce) and a bowl of oats with blueberries. Coffee with almond milk and stevia – always.
I’ve also been liking protein oats – just mix in a scoop of protein powder (my favorite is PEScience Snickerdoodle) into your oats and top with your favorite toppings. I’ve been loving ground flax seed and Justin’s Maple Almond Butter.
One of my favorite mid day meals has been white rice, chicken, and avocado. It’s so simple but I honeslty love it and don’t get tired of it. I always top it with some hot sauce, sea salt and Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning.
Dinner is usually a big salad for me. I genuinely love salads and I don’t just eat them because they’re “low carb”. As you can see below I actually added carbs to this salad in the form of some baked potato. Also in the salad: chicken, salted almonds, avocado and green beans (I used whatever leftover veggies I have in the fridge). For dressing I like to mix apple cider vinegar, mustard and olive oil.
I made these sweet potato protein pancakes as a post worout snack the other day and they’re perfect for breakfast or any meal. I just mix 1 scoop of protein, 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato, 50 grams (about 1/4 cup liquid egg whites), cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 cup almond milk (any kind of milk works) or water. Whisk together and cook in a sprayed pan on low heat. I topped them coconut oil and sugar free syrup. (note: I was not on prep I’d use full calorie pure maple syrup!)
You guys all know (if you follow me on Instagram stories) that I am obsessed with nightly smoothie bowl. It’s thick like ice cream, sweet, and just always hits the spot. Not to mention it’s HUGE because of all the ice I use.
1 cup frozen blueberries (plus a few for topping)
1 scoop Snickerdoodle Protein Powder
1/5 cup almond milk (+ a litte water to get blending)
2 cups of ice
Blend! A Vitmaix works best
Top with cinnamon, and a tablespoon of peanut butter. SO GOOD.
A treat I had last weekend (on a high carb day) that I thought was worth sharing was a pint of Chocoalte Halo Top topped with two birthday cake oreos. 😉
Another post workout snack (also would be a great pre workout breakfast) was this peaches n cream cream of rice.
30 grams cream of rice
1 scoop Snickerdoodle Protein
Chopped peaches or nectarine microeaved in and topped fresh.
I hope you all found these meal ideas helpful, and found some fun new combos to try. What are some of your favorite meals lately? I’d love to know!
Stay happy and healthy.
