breakfast

vanilla coffee protein shake

  1. 1 scoop vanilla, 100% whey protein
  2. 6 oz cold or room temperature coffee (i usually just make extra coffee everyday and save what i have leftover in the fridge for my shakes, if you only have room temp then just add some ice so it’s cold!)
  3. 3 oz califia farms unsweetened almond milk

add all ingredients to shaker and enjoy. you can also blend it up with extra ice to make it more frappuccino like. i like to do that in the summer time.

  1. 1 cup of 365 peanut butter & cocoa balls
  2. 4 oz califia farms unsweetened almond milk

so i’m slightly obsessed with cereal and i like to try to incorporate it into my breakfast if possible every once in awhile.

dinner/post workout

bacon, egg whites & over easy eggs on toast – who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?? i could probably eat breakfast for every meal of my day. this takes almost no time to whip up and is loaded with plenty of protein and healthy carbs. i take one slice of toast and spread harrissa on and then on the other i used the fruit spread then layered the bacon on, egg whites on both slices and topped them with an over easy egg and sprinkle of feta cheese on top.

  8. 1/4 cup blueberries – served on the side

  1. I love your blog! Did you eat this amount of calories when you first started? I get so confused on how many calories, if I put what I want to lose my fitness pal say 1200 calories but I starve on that!

    1. Hi Kelly!! Thank you so much for reading!! I’m happy you are enjoying the blog! When I first started I was doing Weight Watchers so I wasn’t counting calories, I was counting points! But I definitely do not agree with the calories that myfitnesspal (MFP) sets up for you. I went in an adjusted them according to my goals. Since I’m trying out IIFYM (if it fits your macros) I set MFP up to meet those standards so everyday I’m mostly concerned with the amount of carbs/fat/protein I’m eating.

      Bodybuilding.com has great resources/articles (I often go here when I need a better understanding of something, from calories to workouts!) Check out this article to help see if your calories should be higher then what is recommended on MFP http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/calorie-know-how-get-equation-right-to-get-results.htm
