What I eat: Favorite healthy meals & snacks

Have been getting a lot of requests for a what I eat blog post and wanted to share a few of my favorite healthy meals and snacks. I try to eat around the same times every day, drink tons of water and never skip meals. I mostly avoid gluten, dairy and red meat.

Please remember, I am NOT a nutritionist – this is just an example schedule and the easy/clean meals and snacks that work for me!

Eating schedule and favorite healthy meals, snacks and desserts:

7AM Coffee – Iced Americano or black coffee

9AM Breakfast – Green smoothie, fresh juice with eggs, avocado and fruit or a protein bar

12PM Lunch – Oatmeal with peanut butter and banana or green smoothie or vegetable bowl with edamame and brown rice

3 PM Snack – Protein Bar, avocado on gluten free crackers, dark chocolate, fruit, coconut milk iced latte with Emmy’s Dark Cacao Macaroons or popcorn

7PM Dinner – Grilled Salmon with brown rice and greens or gluten free pasta or sweet potato with avocado and vegetables

Desert – Salted dark chocolate or Halo Top ice cream

pre workout smoothie recipe

I love this smoothie recipe: Spinach, banana, pea protein, cinnamon, ice and almond milk or water.

If I’m doing cardio, I like to have an empty stomach and eat after my workout. For weights, I have something to eat at least one hour before (usually a bar or smoothie) and one hour after. More on what I eat before and after workouts here.

food diary

The Trader Joe’s lentil pasta is my favorite. The only ingredient is red lentils so it is high in protein and gluten free. I just add olive oil and salt.

gluten free avocado toast

I always have a snack at 3pm. This gluten free crisp bread is from Trader Joe’s and I just add avocado, salt, everything but the bagel seasoning and a little olive oil.

healthy meals

This is one of my all time favorite healthy meals. Luke makes the best simple Salmon on the grill! He cooks it on a cedar plank from Whole Foods and adds lemon, rosemary and olive oil. This pairs really well with asparagus and brown rice.

theo chocolate

We love dark chocolate! Theo and Hu are our faves!

coconut milk latte

An iced coconut milk latte is my favorite Summer treat from Starbucks.

Another favorite smoothie recipe! unsweetened vanilla almond milk, banana, spinach, frozen blueberries, cinnamon, ice and protein powder

oatmeal recipe

I love to have oatmeal with peanut butter, cinnamon and bananas when I’m distance running and need more calories.

favorite healthy meals and snacks

Spindrift has such good flavored sparkling waters. Perfect bars are great for an on the go breakfast or snack and I always bring them when traveling.

edamame

Edamame is a quick way to get protein and is so easy to make.

eggs

Eggs with Avocado and fruit or always good. I like eggs over easy or poached.
