What I Eat In A Day- Day 1: Coach Jess

This month in honor of National Nutrition Month, we are sharing a weekly “What I Eat in a Day” from a member of our Works Wellness Team! 

First up we have Coach Jess!

Hi I’m Jess, one of the health coaches in the Works Wellness Center. Each day, I make sure I get 3 square meals and 2 nutritious snacks in order to stay energized throughout the day and avoid any crashes. I do my best to stay hydrated and aim for 64 oz of water a day, although this is something I have always struggled with!

Here we go! 

 

 


First up, BREAKFAST!
Full of whole grains, fiber and protein. (Oats with dates, pecans, flax seeds, chia seeds, and peanut butter.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MORNING SNACK:
High protein, minimally processed morning snack. Rx bars are my go-to!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LUNCH:
Lunches vary week to week, but I like to prep my lunches a the start of the week. I always include protein + veggie + grain
(This week: chipotle honey chicken, seasoned peppers/onions/spinach, and quinoa)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AFTERNOON SNACK:
Afternoon snack usually is either fruit & peanut butter, or Greek yogurt, fruit & honey. (Greek yogurt, fruit, chia seeds and a drizzle of honey)
Always looking for a good carbohydrate + protein combo for a sustainable energy boost.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DINNER: 
Dinner varies depending on what my fiance decides to cook. Almost always aiming for a protein + starch + veggie (Last night was chicken with Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning, sweet potatoes, and asparagus, but we do fish often as well!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE GRAND FINALE: 
For my sweet tooth, a square of dark chocolate to close out the day!
