I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🙂 Ours was really nice – recap here!
I wanted to pass along some #motivation for getting back on track after the holiday. I haven’t done one of these sample macro days in awhile, so I figured it was the perfect time to share. I hope the eats and workouts inspire some of yours this week! Additionally, if you’re looking for some macro motivation with your meals and tracking, I’m offering 20% off any of the 3, 6, or 12-month Weekly Macro Meal Plans today and tomorrow (Cyber Monday) with code CNCTHANKS.

Breakfast – I tossed together a quick breakfast filled with baby spinach, 2 eggs, and a side of broccoli tots.
Snack – Before hitting the gym, I grabbed a rice cake and topped it with a tablespoon of whipped cream cheese + Trader Joe’s Carrot Cake Spread. Mmm! It was such a tasty combo!
Lunch – Post-workout, I was hungry and tossed together a rather random lunch with lots of veggies, including greens, pickled veggies, cauliflower rice, parsnips, chicken, hummus, and some spicy harissa.
Snack – I was still a bit hungry by the time the afternoon rolled around, so I whipped up a yogurt bowl. In the mix: Kite Hill’s Greek Style Almond Yogurt with crunchy granola.
Dinner – Dinner turned out a little ugly, but so so delicious and high in protein! It was a can of tuna mixed with relish and Dijon mustard on top of gluten-free bread with melted cheddar. It was so good!
Snack – To round out the day, I enjoyed 1/2 a sliced banana with Teddie Peanut Butter and a few dark chocolate chips.
