Eats Lately

As promised, here is what I have been eating lately!  As I was compiling these pictures, I was thinking…hmmm, this is pretty boring.  I tend to eat such simple food (and the same thing over and over again).  But such is life when you’re counting macros.  I don’t make a lot of recipes, but instead I just cook things separately (carb, protein, veggies) that I can throw together into meals.  Hopefully it’s not boring for you to read!  Here is what I’ve been eating: Breakfast Ezekiel toast with almond butter // Applegate turkey bacon // Blueberries I love Ezekiel toast and almond butter.  Another breakfast I have been having is Ezekiel toast with almond butter and a green smoothie.  I […]

Stronger U Diet Update + Food Diary

Stronger U Food Diary: Week 1

I can’t even tell you how many diets my mom has tried over the years, but I feel like every month or so for my entire life it was always something new.  You know how you always say you won’t turn out like your mom and then you do?  Well, this was one of those things.  I wasn’t going to always try new diets.  And then….I became adult, and (in this aspect) I became my mother. Guess what?  I’m trying a new diet. The vegan thing in January wasn’t really a ‘diet,’ it was more like an experiment.  We wanted to see if Lance’s blood pressure would go down and hey, if we lost weight in the process that would […]
