It has been requested that I continue this What I eat while eating high protein. I mean I can’t eat protein pancakes, eggs and giant steaks at 8:00pm every night (well-yes I can…). Anyways-I don’t really remember what day this is from (sometime between this week and last week).
Breakfast today, I had eggs. I try and have at least 2-3 eggs daily. Not because they taste awesome with ketchup, but because I just have really come to like scrambled eggs. Today I had 3 regular eggs and 1 cup of egg whites. I know-that is quite a lot of eggs and protein and yes, it’s very filling. I like it.
It kept me full for a solid 5 hours. Not that I really needed too but that is just what it did. For lunch, I had a salmon salad with feta cheese and balsamic dressing. I honestly don’t think you can have a bad salad that includes balsamic, salmon and feta cheese. The salmon was delicious.
Some of the things I try and have daily are salmon, eggs, cheese, Greek yogurt and some sort of oil (balsamic). I do have fruit, not a lot, but I do have it. As I said, last week, I don’t really care for fruit so limiting that was not a big deal.
Then later in the day (creature of habit) I had another quest bar. I couldn’t get to any “real” food, (I don’t actually know what fake food is anyways) but I had a quest bar-Coconut cashew because that is my favorite.
Dinner that particular night was ham. My mom makes a mean slow cooked ham and I was not going to pass that up. Even if that meant eating dinner at around 8pm after getting home. Luckily for me, she saved me a hearty helping and I was able to go back for seconds too.
That particular day was a lighter day of eating, but I also didn’t work out. It was one of my off days during my rest week last week. I don’t eat less on purpose during rest days, I just don’t tend to be as hungry. I mostly napped the entire day and caught up on school work.
As always-if you have more questions about high protein and me email me at lolzthatswim at gmail or comment or ask anonymously here. I really have no problems answering whatever questions you have and how it’s working for me. I love writing blogs on it for your enjoyment. 🙂
Question for you:
1. What foods do you normally get daily?
2. Do you tend to eat more/less during rest days?
