8:15 A.M. {Breakfast}  Oatmeal

10:00 A.M. {Pre-Dog Walk & Park with Kiddo} 1 slice of toast w/ PB & 1/8 banana

The entire banana was bad, this was all I could salvage, usually I would eat half a banana.

11:15 A.M. {Post-Walk / Park} Protein blueberry muffin & Iced-Coffee with Coconut Milk

I was starving when we got home from the park! I’ve been making these muffins once a month with very ripe bananas. I use the muffin recipe on the Kodiak Cakes box of waffle mix. I substitute out butter and use coconut oil instead. I also use honey or maple syrup instead of brown sugar, and I add in blueberries.

12:15 P.M.  {Snack}  Cottage Cheese

Normally I would wait and have lunch around 1 p.m, but I had an appointment today, and then some errands to run. I was already feeling a little hungry and knew by 2-3pm I would be HANGRY if I didn’t eat a snack now.

2:45 P.M. {Lunch} Salad topped with Veggie Burger 

Later lunch than usual, but still my usual go-to salad for lunch. Lettuce blend topped with carrots, beets, avocado, tomato, blue cheese crumbles, raw pumpkin seeds, and a veggie burger. Salad dressing is homemade from the Eat Fast Run Slow Cookbook.

5:30 P.M. {Pre-Track Tuesday Snack}

Let’s not pretend, I may have eaten half the box. I also had protein bar. My go to bar before workouts is Health Warrior Chia Bars, and my favorite flavor is Chocolate Peanut Butter. FYI you can use discount code chasing_prs30 for 30% off all products on the Health Warrior Website

9:00 P.M. {Post-Track} Protein Shake

 

Today’s schedule made the time’s I ate at a little off, but I still ate the same food that I typically eat every single day! I keep my diet simple, and like to keep my food options to a minimum. Spending less time worrying about what I’m going to eat and more time focusing on other things. The food I do eat is food I love and actually crave. If I start to feel bored or stop liking the taste of something I bring something new into my routine. By keeping it simple my body knows what to expect. There are no surprises, and I have less stomach issues and discomfort! I love to eat smaller portions more times thru out the day.

Do you follow a routine for meals or do you mix up what you eat each day? What are your favorite snacks, and meals? I love knew ideas!!!

    Love this post because I am always curious as to what other runners eat in a day. I am in a serious food rut. For breakfast during the week I eat the same thing, a blueberry LaraBar. This week I decided to switch it up and have a peanut butter cup protein shake with coconut/almond milk, but I really would rather eat something! I typically run around 11am so I feel like I should eat something more but never do. Lunch I always get a salad of sorts around my office. I am super awful about eating a healthy afternoon snack while I am still at the office. Instead I go home and eat not so healthy things, like cheese and crackers or a bunch of peanut butter, before preparing dinner. We have a meat share so most of our dinners are some sort of grilled protein with veggies. But then I eat like a bowl of cereal later in the evening. I am in desperate need of healthy snack suggestions!!

    1. Thank you Kim! I’m also bad about eating before running but now that I run later in the morning it helps to have some fuel in my body!! I try to plan and shop once or twice a week and have everything I need for meals on hand. I hope you got some good suggestions! Oh and one of my before bed snacks is yogurt with a little trail mix or granola mixed in, but cereal is always yummy too!!

  2. I always love what I ate today posts! You’re good at eating early; I am so much busier throughout the day that I always eat the most during the evenings which isn’t necessarily ideal. My day would have a massive dinner after the track workout, haha! I eat a pretty wide range, but have a lot of standards, if that makes sense.

    1. Thank you for reading!! I’m hoping to do “what I ate today” weekly or bi monthly. And I’m so tired after track all I want to do is go to bed! Love that you have a lot of standards! Hope to read about them on your blog.
