Day in the life posts are my very favorites, but a close second are food posts - specifically ones that share exactly what you eat in a day. I love food and I love to cook so that isn't super surprising, but I also just really find it interesting to see what people eat. I first saw this type of post on Kristin Cavallari's app, and since, I have seen it on lots of other blogs and have been wanting to do my own.
I took this picture before I bagged up my little egg muffins and headed to work (wanted to avoid the awkwardness of coworkers seeing me take food pictures at work). I actually eat at work, because I have found that if I eat at home, right when I get to work I am hungry again. Especially when I smell all the yummy food (like bacon) that people bring to their desk from the cafe downstairs. Totally a mental thing, but it works for me. I make a pan of these egg and spinach muffins every Sunday. I put them in little baggies, keep three sets of two out for the start of the week and freeze the rest, pulling them out of the freezer as needed. When I get to work I just pop them in the microwave for 45 seconds and they are at the perfect eating temp.
This picture is actually from Tuesday night, but I had the same exact thing for lunch on Wednesday. Chicken tacos (seasoned chicken, sauteed red bell peppers and onion) with radishes and pineapple salsa from Hello Fresh. Yum! I seriously was thinking about this lunch since the night before, because I liked them so much.
I try to have a snack around 2:00 or 3:00 - this day was right in the middle at 2:30. One thing I learned from the 21 Day Fix is that I needed to get in more protein and Greek yogurt is the perfect way to do that. I combine the yogurt with lots of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of blueberries.
I had a butterfinger custard concrete as a little pre-dinner snack. Just one of those days where you need that extra special treat!
Another Hello Fresh meal - Steak Tagliata. This was super delicious. Steak, arugula, warmed tomatoes with a balsamic vinaigrette, and thyme and garlic roasted sweet potatoes.
This is pretty close to how I eat on a regular basis during the week...minus the custard. Breakfast is always the same. Lunch is usually leftovers, or a basic salad and grilled chicken and the addition of fruit (this day I unfortunately forgot my strawberries at home). Sometimes I eat the fruit I packed for lunch as a snack in the morning, on those days where I am being good and ignoring all the food here at work but I need something to get me through to lunch. Dinner always varies - occasionally I will save leftovers for supper, but I do like to cook a lot so I tend to make something different for dinner most nights during the work week.
What does a day of your meals look like?
