Yesterday I finally remembered to take pics of my food for the day and posted it on the My Mission Impossible (MMI) Facebook page. I’d been getting a lot of questions about how I eat and what I eat so I thought I’d share. Since I stayed up late last night cooking veggies and prepping meals, I thought I’d take some more pics to post on the blog today since a lot of my family and friends that read are not on Facebook. So, sorry if you are and you feel this is redundant; however, I love seeing what other people are eating to get some new ideas so I think I’ll prob keep it up about once a week or so.
Like I said before, I usually eat 6 meals a day. Since I’m now in the low/high cal days of LiveFit Trainer I’ve been pretty diligent about prepping all of my meals the night before and entering everything into My Fitness Pal to be sure I’ll be hitting my macros the next day. I have My Fitness Pal set up to list Meal 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 instead of the standard Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks, you can do it however you like, that just works better for me.
Oat Pancakes (I’m working on getting my recipe page started hopefully by the end of the weekend, so this will be my first recipe)! And I usually add some protein powder to my pancake batter but forgot today so I just had a cup of coffee with a bit of unsweetened almond milk and a half scoop of vanilla whey. I find these pancakes to be pretty filling and taste pretty decent. (I’d like to mess with the recipe a bit to see if I can improve it but that’s on my mile-long to do list.) Today I topped mine with 2 tbsp of sugar-free syrup.
Quick Oat Pancakes
1/4 cup of oat flour
6 tbsp of egg whites (I used the pasteurized ones in the carton to be quicker)
1 tsp of Ideal Brown or Truvia
1/2 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder
1/8 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
*I put all together in a little magic-bullet-ish blender that I make my protein shakes in and I cook in a small 9″ (I think) pan. It yields 2 pancakes. This batter get pretty thick so I usually add about and oz. or two of water to thin it out. But that personal preference.
*I use this as a base recipe and add all different kind of spices or fruit, chia, pumpkin, flax, etc…whatever I’m feeling that day! Make it your own….
4 squares (2 servings) of Jamie Eason’s Carrot Cake Protein Bars and 1/2 cup of nonfat cottage cheese.
2 of Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins (I changed these a tiny bit just for some variety this week), 1/2 cup of steamed brown rice, and some steamed zucchini. Plus 1 cup of baby carrots with 3 tbsp of hummus (not pictured)
Salad of mixed greens, diced tomato, chopped mushrooms, 1/2 avocado (not on there yet), diced red onion and 5 oz. of Little B’s Clean Buffalo Chicken along with some roasted asparagus (I should steam instead, but this is really the only way I can eat asparagus).
PWO Shake with 1/2 banana and chia. 4-5 egg whites scrambled with fresh salsa. (Not pictured, because I didn’t have it yet!)
Casein Pudding. I got this idea from a couple of different blogs I saw or other facebook pages. I had already been taking casein at night, but in the form of a shake and it doesn’t blend as well as whey so I wasn’t really into it, then I saw this idea. You can check out this recipe from Little B, which is one of the places I saw this. (I’ll try to add a pic tonight when I make it). Here’s how I make it….
1 scoop of Casein Chocolate Protein Powder
1 tbsp of PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
sometimes a 1/2 tsp of Ideal Brown or Truvia if I’m craving more of a sweet treat
*mix up dry ingredients in the bowl and slowly add almond milk and/or water (I use a little of both) until absorbed. You really have to stir this pretty good (I use a baby whisk) and I still can never get all the lumps out. I put it in the freezer for about 15-30 mins. I don’t like it frozen, just really cold.
So there you go…let me know if you enjoy seeing posts like this or if I just bored you half to death!!
Thanks for reading,
