Now that schedules, school, and sports are in full swing, I have been cooking up a lot of great, healthy on-the-go snacks and meals. Ever since I have started this blog (3 years ago) I have been sharing my favorite recipes and lunch ideas, so I thought it’d be interesting to what I eat in an average day. Now that I am up and out earlier in the morning for school, it is especially important that I eat nutritious and healthy food throughout the day!
Of course, this is just one example of what I might have- please keep in my mind that I did not make anything special or out of the ordinary for this day! Also, I play multiple sports and usually have breakfast around 6:30- something that may not be normal for some people!
What are some of your favorite daily recipes? Please stay tuned for an upcoming post on my recommended lunch containers (by age). Enjoy!
Breakfast: (around 6:15-30 am)
I had a green smoothie made with banana, mango, pineapple, plain yogurt, spinach, and coconut water for breakfast, alongside a piece of whole grain toast with 1-ingredient peanut butter and chia seeds. This is the whole wheat bread from Vermont Bread Company, and is my favorite brand. 🙂
Lunch: (around 11:15am- we have early lunches!)
For lunch I had ww pita, mini bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and carrots with balsamic onion hummus (only 7 real ingredients and the best I’ve found!) along with an apple ring/pb sandwich and a Siggis brand yogurt.
Afternoon Snack (3pm):
Before volleyball practice, I had peeled snacks brand dried apples and a whole grain brown rice cake topped with peanut butter.
Other small snack:
I was hungry after practice, so I had a handful of almonds to hold me over.
Dinner: (7:30 pm)
For dinner, my family had this salad with strawberries, goat cheese, red onion, cherry tomatoes, grilled chicken, and a drizzle of olive oil for the dressing.
After dinner I had some homemade hot cocoa (made with whole milk, pure maple syrup, and raw cocoa powder).
