This week I take you through what I eat in a day as well as some quick banana pumpkin muffins! I was on the go during this day so I needed quick and easy meals!
Banana Pumpkin Muffins
2 1/2 overripe bananas
1 cup pumpkin puree
tsp baking powder
tsp sea salt
2 cups oat flour
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes
I hope you enjoy!
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!
Over the past year I’ve lost about 25lbs. I’ve maintained strength and I sit around 11% body fat. This has taken some serious trial and error with my diet. I still have not mastered the art of eating enough but I’m getting better everyday. I’ve posted about what I eat in a day before and I thought I would try to film it this time. I’m obviously new to this but I hope you enjoy it!
Starting with my breakfast, I eat this every single day. I have 1/4 cup of oatmeal. I shred half a zucchini and a bit of carrot and mix it in. I top it with plain greek yogurt and a banana. This meal keeps me full through our long morning workouts.
Post workout I always inhale my egg omelette. I include one full egg and about 3 egg whites. I top it with hot sauce and pair it with two rice cakes and natural peanut butter. Shortly after this I have an apple because I always crave something sweet.
After this I’m on the move until 6:00pm. I have two pumpkin protein muffins in between classes at school and then some yogurt and berries on my way to train.
For dinner I had leftovers, which is pretty common for me during the week. I added some fresh veggies to make it a big more voluminous. I was craving a treat after dinner so I whipped up some chocolate quinoa. This dessert is so rich but relatively healthy.
I hope you enjoyed my first attempt at a VLOG!
