3 Day Food Diary

Lifestyle

June 17, 2020

Hi, sweet friends. I’ve been promising to share an updated 3 Day Food Diary for awhile, and here it is!

First, a few things:

  • I usually eat meat (ground turkey) once a week on Taco Tuesday. Otherwise, no meat for me.
  • I have always been an 80/20 girl. 80% of the time, I’m eating well and fueling my body with greens and fresh food. 20% of the time, I’m eating sweets and preservatives. It’s just how it is.
  • I am NOT a foodie. I am not at all adventurous with food, and I can eat the same thing every day for months on end.
  • I am still doing Intermittent Fasting, and will generally fast 6pm – 9/10am each day. I will still have my coffee right when I wake up.
  • I’m still breastfeeding and I tried to share overall what I eat – some days I eat more and some days I eat less.

FOOD DIARY: DAY ONE

COFFEE

Coffee is the reason I get up in the morning, and I will have 1 or 2 cups before I break my fast.

3 day food diary, what I eat in a day: coffee
Coffee with almond milk, a splash of half + half and stevia.

BREAKFAST

I usually break my fast post-workout. One of my go-to’s is Greek Yogurt with granola + fruit.

LUNCH

mini peppers
avocado
cucumber
cauliflower
feta cheese
Balsamic vinaigrette dressing

DESSERT

A new favorite find. Sometimes I will snack on these before my run – they’re filling and sweet and SO delicious. I found them in the refrigerated area at the grocery store.

FOOD DIARY: DAY TWO

BREAKFAST

A Daily Harvest shake is my go-to when I don’t have much time for breakfast.

Sometimes I make myself a healthy lunch. Sometimes I eat my kids’ grilled cheese crusts.

AFTERNOON SNACK

DESSERT

A new find. I have such a sweet tooth, and I’m *trying* to curb it. I found these last week, and I’ve been having a few when my sweet tooth hits. I’ll have two.

FOOD DIARY: DAY THREE

BREAKFAST

    This is great! Does your family eat the same that you eat or do you make them something else? I have a 4 year old and can’t imagine her eating a big salad like that!

      Most of the time, my kids will eat some of what we’re eating and then I’ll make sure they also have something they like. My husband will always eat what I eat, but sometimes I will make him some meat to have on the side. Hope this helps! xo

    Thank you for posting this! Yep, coffee is the reason for waking! I make a ritual once a week and make my cold brew, I buy expensive shade grown, organic, fair trade, local and fresh roasted coffee beans haha coffee is life. I have no hobbies or time for myself, my coffee is all I have.

  3. Rachel says:

    That seems like very little food. I’d be starving!
