Full disclosure: I do not eat this well every single day. This is what I aim for! This does not account for date nights, pizza nights, times I forget to eat until 3pm, or midnight cookie binges. All of which take place in our house!
Goal: Weekdays- smoothie with spinach, fruit, protein, collagen, yogurt, almond milk. Or more likely one from Daily Harvest that’s already in my freezer (if you want to try them, you can get 3 free cups using this link https://daily-harvest.com/r/RE-2R87G38) Weekends- turkey bacon, egg and cheese sandwich (not the best but I don’t care I love it)
Most likely: half a cup of coffee before rushing to drop my kid at school late
Goal: a prepped meal with lean protein, vegetables and a healthy carb like sweet potato
Most likely: If I have a meal prepped in the fridge I’ll eat it. Or I’ll get a salad at Evergreens. Or a Poke bowl. Or sushi. Or nothing Bc I’m a mom and I’m preoccupied with nap times and potty training and laundry and dirty dishes and cleaning the same mess I’ve cleaned 57 times that day already.
Goal: Either a prepped meal similar to lunch or a home cooked meal (spaghetti, lasagna, Alfredo, chicken fajitas, tacos, etc)
Most likely: these things 👆🏻 are actually pretty consistent. But for the sake of transparency I will tell you that two nights ago I ate McDonald’s in bed at 10pm.
I’m telling you, I’m not an expert by any means. But I hope that that’s even more motivating. You don’t have to go on an extreme diet to see results! Be consistent in your workouts and eat well 80% of the time and you can indulge in your cravings sometimes. NW FitMeals have helped tremendously with keeping my eating on track!
