Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day!
So, I heard a rumor that you like to see what I eat in a day. And, truthfully, I also love to see what other people eat because it always gives me great ideas for my own food choices. And since macros are SO HOT right now, I wanted to share the macro breakdown of each of my meals and snacks. I don’t have any set number goals for them, but I try my best to make sure each is somewhat balanced between protein, carbs, and fat. I find those to be the most satisfying.
This particular day was this past Monday, so you’ll see lots of Thanksgiving leftovers and some extra chocolate because my blog was attacked by malware for the second time in one week. I was feeling stressed and frustrated, so I decided to, well, eat my feelings. I mean, hey, some days chocolate (and wine) are what get me though the day! 🙂
Breakfast: Banana Protein Pudding (recipe below)
Lunch: Crockpot Turkey Chili (Designed to Fit Nutrition recipe)
Dinner: Thanksgiving leftovers – roasted turkey, sweet potato casserole, carrots, and spinach
Dessert: Trader Joe’s Bamba
Totals: P 106 C 162 F 67
Quick note about my macro totals: When planning my eats for the day, I keep a general macro range in mind, but I don’t make myself crazy trying to “hit my macros.” If I’m within 10g (over or under), I’m good. I try to stick to a 30/40/30 (P/C/F) breakdown during the week, but I rarely ever track my macros on the weekend because YOLO.
Banana Protein Pudding

- 2 tbsp creamy nut butter (I think Teddie works best!)
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
Directions: Place ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke for 45 seconds. Mix ingredient together until smooth. Eat!
