Here's What I Eat In A Day

Updated: Aug 1, 2023

Pre-prepped meals  in containers

One of the things that helped me “click” with healthy eating was seeing how someone else did it.

I’m not talking about a made-up plan in a magazine, but a real-life example of a day’s worth of eating… exactly what they ate and when they ate it.

So that’s why I’ve decided to pull back the curtain and share my personal “day in the life” when it comes to food.

Something to keep in mind: this is what works for ME. I’m not suggesting you follow this!

I’m sharing it in hopes that it gets the wheels turning for YOU in finding a routine that fits your goals, schedule, and likes/dislikes.

So here we go! This is what I ate last Monday. My day consisted of waking up at 5 AM, training clients from 5:30 AM - 10 AM, a gym session (45 minutes of strength training followed by 30 minutes of cardio), admin work, and ending the day with my evening clients at 7 PM.

FIRST THING IN THE MORNING: I fill up my 40-ounce water cup and start drinking. I'm not a coffee or tea drinker, so this is the only beverage I have in the morning (and most of my day).

BREAKFAST: Depending on my schedule this is usually eaten within a 30-minute break during my morning training hours or I'll drink a shake while training. But this morning I ate breakfast at 6:45 AM during one of my gaps. I warmed up my pre-prepped egg frittata with potatoes. The egg frittata contains eggs, shredded chicken, diced tomatoes, and spinach. I paired it with some pre-steamed potatoes and topped it all off with hot sauce and 1/4 of an avocado.

MORNING SNACK (10 AM): I had a pre-sliced pink lady apple with 1 tbsp of fresh ground peanut butter.

[Then I took a nap because I was exhausted, which pushed my lunch way back.]

BEFORE MY WORKOUT (1 PM.): Drank my pre-workout. Refilled my 40-ounce cup and took it to the gym with me.

POSTWORKOUT/LUNCH (3 PM): I pulled out my pre-prepped salad. In my salad were mixed greens, grilled chicken, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, and avocado, and topped with ranch dressing (2 tbsp measured out).

AFTERNOON SNACK (5 PM; while training my evening clients): Pre-prepped smoothie – my go-to grab & go snack and an easy way to get in more protein. It contained coconut milk, strawberries, banana, spinach, chia seeds, cinnamon, and protein powder.

DINNER (8 PM): One-pan Italian sausage and roasted vegetables! This was the only meal I had to completely prepare from start to finish. BUT I made enough that I wouldn't have to make dinner again on Tuesday. This meal contained sausage, broccoli, red bell pepper, green beans, and tomato, and paired with white rice. Washed it all down with a 12-ounce can of sparking lime water (unsweetened).

As you can see… I prep as much food ahead of time as I can. It helps me get through my day easier and if my schedule gets thrown off a little (by an unplanned nap for example) it doesn't interfere with making food choices that align with my goals.

Because just like you, I struggle with having enough time to actually eat my meals, much less make one from scratch every few hours.

It’s all about keeping it simple so you can stick with it!
