Full Day Of Eating

HAPPY THURSDAY!! For some reason, I've felt like it's Friday all day, so it's a bit sad when I realize it's only Thursday...but oh well. I'm excited for the weekend, excited to send out the next set of workouts for my Pregnancy & Postpartum workout subscription, and I'm excited my blog is finally back up and running! Wohoo!

I haven't posted a full day of eating in a while, because I always forget to take pictures of my food, BUT I did on Monday. I like seeing what other people eat, and getting snack/meal ideas from them. This is designed to help with ideas, and isn't a recommendation of how YOU should eat for YOUR body. We're all different, and we all need different amounts of food everyday. 

BREAKFAST

I've been trying to incorporate more gut-friendly foods into my diet, because gut health is EVERYTHING and has a huge impact on our overall health. For breakfast I had a sprouted english muffin (sprouted grains are better for digestion), topped with Kite Hill cream cheese, arugula, 2 egg whites + 1 whole egg (there's nothing wrong with using full eggs, but sometimes I'm just feeling egg whites), a Trader Joes chicken sausage, and Probiotic Boost's sauerkraut (AMAZING for gut health!).

I went shopping at Sprouts after Jack's doctor's appointment, and got myself a Kevita drink because I haven't had one in a while, and they're SO good! Again, it's great for gut health, and I drank these all the time during the first trimester because it helped with nausea, and settled my stomach!

LUNCH

While the kids napped, I chopped and roasted a bunch of sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, and broccoli to have on hand throughout the week, and threw in a couple of chicken tenders for lunch. I threw them on a bed of arugula and used my cheesy tahini sauce on top (not pictured). That dressing is SO easy to put together, and I put it on top of salads, eggs, roasted vegetables...you name it. 

I don't know if it's just me, but I always have to have something sweet after lunch? I had a Square Organics chocolate sea salt crisp bar (dairy, refined sugar, and gluten free protein bars), and it hit the spot. Use "goodfortheswole" to get 20% off if you want to try them! They're amazing.

SNACK

After the babes woke up from their nap, we headed to the park because the weather was beautiful, and when we got home I had a bowl of cottage cheese with pineapple (it's SO good right now, and so cheap!).

DINNER

I had these chili lime chicken tacos with mango avocado salsa again for dinner (two of them, actually), but heated up a wrap with a little bit of mozzarella cheese and put the ingredients in there instead of a taco. Both are awesome!!

After the kids went down for bed, I hit up the gym for a workout because I was in desperate need of some "Becky time"! Piper goes down between 7:00-7:30, and Jack goes down around 8:30, so I change into my workout clothes after Piper goes to bed, and start Jack on his bedtime routine, so I can get going as soon as he goes down. I did a 45 minute upper body workout, and had 2 scoops of Ideal Raw's super berry protein (use "SWOLE" for 10% off their products. it's my only protein powder I took during pregnancy and now while I'm breastfeeding), and I also had a banana afterwards.

I remember feeling like I wasn't very hungry all day, and I didn't eat as much as normal. Now, looking back, I feel like it was still a somewhat decent amount haha, but I do workout regularly, and I am nursing so I do generally eat a bit more. Every day is totally different, and I try to eat a balanced diet, and determine quantities based on how I feel. Our bodies are so smart, and some days they may want more, others they may want less.
