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!
