Your workouts are excellent. What are you eating?
Thank you very much! My diet is a bit frazzled because of the lifestyle that I lead. I eat as much as I can when I can. I don't really have a "typical day" because everything is so frantic between here and there, but I can give you a run down of the basics:
My breakfast is the only thing that never varies:
Heaping scoop of natural peanut butter, huge serving of oatmeal, and chocolate soy milk. If you haven't tried this, you need to. It's incredibly delicious and unbelievably satisfying. The portion I serve myself is usually about 800 calories or so. I can't stress enough how good of a way this is for me to start my day.
I always have almonds and raisins with me. Always. Great source of protein and keep me super energized throughout the day. I'll snack on that at least once.
I try to eat a huge salad with spinach, carrots, sunflowers, ginger dressing, walnuts, and whatever else while I'm on campus. Costs about $3.50 and I'm feeling primed for the gym shortly afterward without my appetite being overly satiated.
Rice, beans, and corn. I love Mexican food and Tex-Mex so piling up a nice serving that equates to about 1,000+ calories is no problem whatsoever.
Peanut butter and jelly whenever I'm at work. Three of them. Very little jelly and LOTS of peanut butter on whole wheat bread. Super cheap and very satisfying
I try to avoid getting meat substitutes because they're expensive, but when they go on sale (BoGo, etc) you can catch me clearing the shelf. I'd say these make up roughly 15% of my diet.
Truthfully, I just try to eat everything that I can. I'm not vegan, just vegetarian, but for the most part I'm about 80% vegan and this is my diet. I'll have some beers with friends on the weekend while watching some football and eat some pizza, but that's really about the extent of my non-vegan habits. I'd be happy to take on any vegan junk food that anyone has to offer to take the place of these things though!
