A Day of My Eats

I thought I'd do a little bit more of a regular post. I took pictures of everything I ate today - just to give you all an idea of what my new eating plan looks like.

As an overview, I like my macros to be around 45 protein, 30 carbs, 25 fat.

My breakfast was my favorite bowl of oatbran right now and a coffee with almond milk.

  • 30 grams oatbran
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 35 grams pumpkin
  • 1 tsp splenda
  • lots of cinnamon 
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter 

I worked out after breakfast. My post work out snack was:

I love these protein shakes. They taste like a really good chocolate milk, with 30 grams of protein no less! 

Lunch was less than stellar, but I eat it for the nutritional stats:

  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 tablespoon miracle whip
  • 3 pickles, chopped
  • lots of pepper
  • 2 cups spinach

After lunch I got to work on some homework, finishing up the semester and all. A few hours into work, my stomach started grumbling - time for my next snack.

This is 1/4 of Jamie Eason's recipe for Carrot Cake Protein Bars. I love to eat them warm. They'd be great with a dollop of greek yogurt on top too.

A few more hours of work, and it was time for dinner

(This is obviously where I lost all the light! Sorry, the pics go down hill from here)

These are turkey muffins, very similar to meatloaf. Tonight I ate them with a little mustard. I also like to have them with steamed spinach and spaghetti sauce. 

For dessert I tried making a protein cake recipe. It did not turn out. I ate about half and finally stopped. So to get my calories up, I ate two of my Pumpkin Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies. I'd say it's a good way to eat calories ;)

This is what the stats looked like today:

Calories 1668, fat 55.3, carbs, 119.5, protein 189.4 

I ate more fat that I would have liked, but there are worse things in the world. Hope this paints a clearer view of what I mean when I talk about my macros. 

Have a great night everyone!


  1. yay thank you!! I appreciate it!! I really need to try Jamie Eason's bars. i LOVE all her recipes - she has a lot more on facebook page too if you haven't seen it!

  2. She's amazing! I have checked out her facebook recipes. Have you tried any of her cookie ones?

  3. more fat?? how much fat do you usualy have? around 60 g gives me the best skin and hair!!
    I need to try those bars!

  4. I aim for less than 50 grams. All the tests I've done for breaking down my calories, I'm supposed to get around 30 grams of fat daily. Sounds low now that I'm typing it out, and it's nearly impossible to get it that low without sacrificing my beloved peanut butters/almond butters!
