Happy Friday! I wanted to share some healthy meals that have been heavy on rotation for me since the New Year and some new ones for you to try!
Oatmeal with berries and granola. I’ve shared this one before, but it’s definitely one of my staple breakfast options. I actually measure everything out so I know how many calories I’m consuming. It’s usually 1 cup 1-minute oatmeal, 1 cup low fat milk, 1/2 cup berries and a few bits of granola. I also sweeten with Stevia/Splenda or Agave.
Another new option I’ve been having for breakfast is 2 Vans Simply Delicious Protein Waffles (10 grams of Protein), 1 T light syrup and a handful of berries.
Protein shakes are always a good option for breakfast, snack or lunch. I use crushed ice, 1 cup low fat milk, 1 scoop of protein (my fav is Optimum Nutrition Extreme Milk Chocolate Whey Protein), 1/2 a banana and cinnamon. It’s cheaper to buy online on Amazon.com but you can find it at GNC or Vitamin Shoppe.
Open face sandwich using cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread (healthy bread option), turkey slices, avocado, tomato and 1 T light mayo.
Skinnytaste Pear and Brie grilled cheese is a delicious option for the foodie, and the recipe can be found in her new book! I found the recipe here too. More on Skinnytaste here and here.
Almonds for healthy snacking. Just count to make sure you how many your consuming as the calories can quickly add up.
As you can see, I love to eat well! These are mexican style steak tacos but I limited my portion to two. We also used cooking spray versus tons of oil. I believe that almost any food you love can be made in a healthier version if you make it yourself at home!
Grilled chicken breast with a slice of melted pepper jack, 1/2 a sweet potato, 1/4 avocado and a salad.
We try to have some type of chicken or meat marinating at home to curb the chances of getting take out. I throw these three items together (veggies, meat and marinade) in a ziploc for an hour or more if I want to keep it simple.
And then on some nights, I take my time and make something super yummy like Skinnytaste Lomo Saltado. Soooo good!
The finished result with crispy homemade fries. Again…yum!
Skinnytaste Garlic Shrimp on a bed of greens.
I have started sharing more of my work outs and meals/snacks on my personal Instagram page @Love_AnaB so follow me there! I’ve also started using MyFitnessPal again to track my calories under MakeupbyAnaB in case you want to be friends!
Have an awesome weekend!
