Daily Meal Plan

I dropped the ball on doing an all week meal prep this Sunday so
I ran to HEB at 10 at nite to stock up on the usual: 
bananas, 2 cartons of organic eggs, cottage cheese, frozen and fresh veggies, peanut butter, and almond milk, tuna, and of course, sweet potatoes! :) 
I always keep these dry ingredients stocked: couscous, quinoa, brown rice, beans, and oats. Shopping late at nite is the way to go. Yes, you might have to dodge late nite re stalkers and their towers of  food pallets rolling down the ailes, but that's why we use the nimble half size carts rite? After a full day, I cooked up some quinoa, homemade protien bars, and spaghetti squash to hold me over until the weekend. We know abs are made in the kitchen so stick to making meals and snacks ahead of time to avoid reaching for a McDonalds biscuit (God forbid you even think of doing that) or a donut at the office. Here's a montage/ collage of yesterday's eats: 

Breakfast
Ezekiel English Muffin with chia seeds, banana, and organic peanut butter (ie, made only with peanuts, no added sugars etc)
Lunch
Turkey sandwich with pineapple
Snack
16 oz Hemp Protein Shake with soy, bananas, strawberry, vanilla extract (the hemp has no flavor, but I prefer more natural sources of protein to the chemically processed and flavored powders)
Pre & Post Workout
Spaghetti Squash with cilantro, eggs, 1/2 Ezekiel muffin with black bean hummus. YUM! 
Late nite snack
Banana, soy milk, peanut butter

Note: Ezekiel bread is delicious! Its in the frozen food isle and it tastes oh so sweet and yummy, only 80 calories per muffin, and its made from sprouted organic grains meaning its loaded with enzymes unlike SAD bread with is loaded with sugars and flour.
