PACKING YOUR LUNCH

THE OTHER DAY I HAD A 14 HOUR WORK DAY. YIKES I KNOW! HOW DO I PACK FOR THE DAY? LOTS AND LOTS OF VEGGIES AND CHICKEN. I USED “MY FITNESS PAL” APP ON MY iPhone AND CALCULATED THE CALORIES FOR THIS FULL DAY OF MEALS AND IT CAME OUT TO JUST UNDER 1200. THIS IS THE PERFECT AMOUNT FOR MY SIZE AND PERSONAL GOALS.

HERE’S WHAT WAS ON MY MENU FOR THAT DAY.

BREAKFAST:
CHOCOLATE PROTEIN SHAKE WITH 1/2 BANANA AND 1/4 CUP STEEL ROLLED OATS. BLEND IT ALL UP WITH WATER AND A FEW ICE CUBES.

BRUNCH:
TACO SALAD – SPRING MIX, SPROUTS, HOMEMADE PICO DE GALLO, 1 TBSP FAGE GREEK YOGURT, CUCUMBER, TAPATILLO HOT SAUCE, 2 OUNCES CHICKEN.

LUNCH:
CRAISIN AND SALMON SALAD – SPRING MIX, SPROUTS, CELERY CHOPPED, CHOPPED CRAISINS ( A GOOD TRICK TO USE LESS BUT STILL HAVE SOME SWEET STUFF IN EACH BITE), CUCUMBER, 1 PACKAGE CANNED SALMON, 1 TBSP FAGE GREEK YOGURT.

SNACKS:
100 CALORIE PACK COCOA ALMONDS (BEST TO BUY THESE BAD BOYS PRE-PORTIONED FOR YOU BECAUSE THEY ARE THE BOMB!)
VEGGIE SNACK PACK: RED PEPPERS, CELERY AND CARROTS.

DINNER:
SIMILAR TACO SALAD AS BRUNCH MINUS THE GREEK YOGURT, PLUS 1/2 SMALL AVOCADO. MY FAVORITE!!

SUPPER:
IF I WAS STILL HUNGRY AFTER ALL THAT I HAD ONE MORE SMALL TACO SALAD.

ADDING THE GREEN TEA IN THERE IS A GREAT WAY TO STAVE OFF HUNGER, AMP UP YOUR ENERGY AND ADD ANTIOXIDANTS.

    • I baked it then put cumin and chili powder on it to make taco chicken without all the sodium and additives of taco seasoning. 🙂
