After the gym I did some laundry and then relaxed for the rest of the day. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday :)
Here's the grub I ate today!
For breakfast I had a bowl of oats with raisins, coconut, walnuts and cinnamon. Super delicious.
Post workout protein shake! I decided to listen to the suggestions offered by all of you and made a delicious shake out of almond milk, a small banana, a tbsp of almond butter and some Vega chocolate protein powder. It was delicious!
For lunch I had this yummy plate of carrots, stuffed grape leaves, sun dried tomatoes, hummus and some Mary's Gone Crackers in the caraway flavor.
For an afternoon snack I had an orange and the very last of the strawberry scraps from the sandwich cake. So yummy.
Dinner was this gorgeous chopped salad. Mesclun greens, sun dried tomato, carrot and a half of a perfectly ripe, creamy avocado. Super simple but super delicious.
It is really amazing how much good clean food you can actually eat. I feel like I've been eating all day and I'm still a bit short on calories. I'll take care of that when I make some air popped popcorn with sea salt later to snack on while I watch some crappy Sunday night TV :)
I know sometimes it looks like I don't consume enough calories in a day. However, I'll use today as an example. Overall I consumed 1,700 calories today within 6 meals/snacks. That is a lot of food for not a lot of calories. My exercise made my net calorie intake a bit lower than that but still leaves me within a healthy amount for my daily calories. Tomorrow will be a challenge with my double training session but I'll figure it out!
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday evening and that Monday treats you well!
