What I Eat in a Day | Pumpkin Chili Recipe

It’s been a long week but I’m back with another full day of eating! I’ve really been enjoying filming my meals. This is what I eat when I only train once during the day. I had a bit more time to make meals and make sure I’m eating enough. When I train three times it can be a bit harder. I hope you enjoy my what I eat in a day video!

My breakfast is always the same. I use half a zucchini, 1/4 a cup of oat, either banana or blueberries and then I top it with greek yogurt. I like to keep it simple and consistent with my breakfast because I train 20min after eating it.

My post workout meal was a paleo breakfast bowl that included sweet potato, spinach, kale and some scrambled eggs.

For my afternoon meal I whipped up some pumpkin pancakes using protein powder, oats, pumpkin and half a banana. These were good but the texture was a bit different.

For dinner I made a big batch of pumpkin, ground Turkey and sausage chili. My family loved it since I normally force them to eat vegetarian food.

For some quick and healthy dessert I warmed up some apples on the stove with some granola and mixed it into some plain greek yogurt. This was so good! The apples are so sweet I didn’t need to use any sweeter.

I hope you found this video helpful!

GFF: What I Eat in a Day

Happy Friday! This week is a bit different… no recipe because I was feeling a little bit uninspired. It happens to the best of us! What I’m going to chat about today is what I eat in a day! A quick reminder that I’m at a training camp with up to four practices a day, each ranging from 45min-2.5 hours. My caloric goal each day is 3000, it doesn’t normally happen because thats a lot of food but I try my best! I’m a big routine person so what I eat is normally doesn’t waiver day to day.

Breakfast : 6:00am

I love breakfast so much. Recently, I’ve been adding zucchini to my oatmeal. It’s a great way to add some extra volume and some extra fibre to your already delicious oatmeal. So what’s in the bowl? 1/3 cup oatmeal, 1/3 cup zucchini, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1 tsp honey, 1 tbsp flaxseed. This meal will keep me full for hours!

Let’s not forget…

I try to get this meal in as quickly as possible, its essential for recovery! This plate consists of, 2 eggs, 1 slice of ham, 1 cup of kale and 2 tbsp of salsa. This meal is full of protein and absolutely delicious!

Post Workout #2: 1:30pm

I love these protein bars for a quick fix when I’m going to miss my window after a workout.  They’re natural, gluten free and taste like fudge, whats better than that? Maybe real fudge..

Pre workout snack: 3:00pm

This banana chocolate shake is up on the blog here is so yummy and so satisfying. It’s the perfect way to curb your cravings. I add chia seeds before a workout because they keep me full through a long session. I highly recommend you give this recipe a try!

Dinner : 7:00pm

This is one of my go-to meals. In the bowl we have, half a sweet potato, six asparagus, 1/2 cup of roasted chickpeas on a bed of spinach featuring my beautiful avocado rose that I’m so proud of!

Not included: I usually have two apples through the day and I’ll have a bowl of chez rice cereal before bed!


 

I hope you enjoy this post, sorry again for the lack of recipe!
