Food Ideas

The most common request I have had is for some meal plans and food ideas. Sometimes it's hard to be creative. Here is an example of what I am eating this week:

6:00 am
Coffee with coffeemate (Italian sweet cream...yum!!!)
1 slice whole wheat toast with 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter

9:00 am
Oatmeal with 1/2 scoop protein powder

12:00 pm
Open face BTA (2 slices turkey bacon, tomato & avocado) sandwich
10 stalks of asparagus (steamed)
1 cup of chocolate pudding

3:00 pm
Slice of cheese OR 24 almonds
Veggies (carrots and celery- as much as I want) with hummus

6:00 pm
1 pork chop and 2 BIG handfulls of steamed green beans

9:00 pm
8 ounce protein shake (after workout)

This is approximately 1600 calories give or take. All of my meals (with the exception of the protein shake) have both carbs and a protein. I drink a minimum of 150 ounces of water per day and I ALWAYS allow myself a treat (the pudding.)


  1. I have found keeping to a schedule really helps me, too. It kind of helps me send the tone for my day. Sounds like it's working great for you, too!!


  2. Every three hours huh? Okay. I'm trying this. I've managed to get rid of all the white flours/rices/and many sugars. I need this now.
    So glad I stopped in today. I do sandwiches on my blog. Nothing serious, but lots of fun. I'm following you now. Keri (a.k.a. Sam)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your words, and your journey.... you're a great inspiration to me and mine!

    Happy day to you,
