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!
This week we have Coach Brooke!
I normally start my day with some sort of egg variation. Today was a homemade cheese bagel made by my husband, one egg, sweet apple chicken sausage and a slice of cheese. I will also have 30oz of water and then enjoy a cup of coffee afterwards!
My go-to morning snack is around 1/2 cup of cottage cheese with berries.
Lunch for me normally consists of leftovers from dinner. Today consisted of ground turkey, spinach, bell peppers and cheese!
Homemade “energy balls”. These have oats, pb, maple syrup, unsweetened coconut flakes, flaxseed, hemp hearts and dark chocolate chips. Normally 2 of these will satisfy me for a couple of hours.
I try to include salmon into my routine 1x/week. I’ve included a variety of roasted veggies to fill 1/2 my plate, tonight was bell peppers and asparagus, and then I finished it off with a healthy scoop of mashed potatoes- my favorite!
I’m normally carrying a 20-30oz water bottle with me during the day and I aim for at least 100oz each day- that amount works for me which I know seems like a lot, so you just have to find what’s realistic for you! 😊
