Some thoughts and discussions from me.

Good morning, my friends!

As you read this, I am on the road again with this gal, on our way west to Park City, Utah for the 2014 Blend Retreat!

^pic from last year (and if you’re coming, too, make sure you get the deets on the Hope Foods happy hour I’m hosting in my suiteWinking smile) Although we’ll be in the car for 8 hours, it will be a beautiful 8 hours, as we’re driving from one side of the Rockies, through to the other.

This week’s been busy, as I’ve had to fit as many clients as I could into 2 days, instead of 4 (I don’t train clients on Wednesdays,) and I’ve had several appointments this week as well. Yesterday I worked straight through from 8:00a-7:00p! (and apologize to anyone whose text messages or voicemails I haven’t replied to yet!)

So, I thought today would be a great day to post what I eat on a daily basis. It also happens to be Wednesday, so I’m technically participating in Jess’s What I Ate Wednesday par-tay. But to be honest, I eat pretty much the same thing, nearly every single day.

Today I’m showing you Monday’s eats. It was a relatively non-chaotic day, as all of my work took place either at home or in the two gyms that I teach/train at that are very close to home.

6:45a – wake up, and realize that I have a client to train in precisely 45 minutes. I make a cup of coffee, add a splash of coconut milk to it, and take Niko for a 15 minute stroll.


I normally like to eat quickly upon waking, but I’m trying out waiting an hour or so a few days a week and see how my body responds, since I’m in a low state of stress in my life right now. If it responds negatively, I’ll go back to eating breakfast within 30 minutes of waking. Which is kind of annoying, but oh well.

7:30a-9:30a – BCAA’s (Richard’s Whole Foods brand – the only one I can find made with all natural ingredients!)

I train a client from 7:30-8:30, and then get in my own workout, that takes about 45 minutes. I completed Workout A in the online boot camp that I’m running right now.

9:30a-ish –ButtermilkflapJacked waffle and some (unpictured) sausage/spinach/red cabbage mixture.


Sometimes basic is better, amiright? A waffle with a little kerrygold butter and some maple syrup. Basic and delicious. Typical breakfasts for me usually include a good portion of meat, eggs, veggies, and sometimes a grain or starch like this Smile

2:30p-ish I had an appointment at 3:30, and ate this lunch shortly before getting ready to head out.


Tacos – it was leftovers from a few nights back. I think this was 80% lean grass fed beef mixed with tomatoes and peppers, stuffed with greek yogurt and avocado.

7:00p-ish – Oh man, this is one of my favorite dinners ever, and it’s so darn simple!


Ground lamb, garlic and curry powder, coconut milk, and cauliflower and spinach served over a bed of spaghetti squash

dessert –


I’m in a Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cup phase right now, and if it’s wrong, well then I don’t want to be right.

This is pretty much how it goes every day! Breakfast is some sort of breakfast meat with veggies and sometimes toast or a pancake/waffle. Lunch is leftovers. We rotate through about 6-8 dinners, and dessert is usually either the above, a Quest bar, yogurt and granola (if I’m pretty hungry,) or a spoonful of Justin’s chocolate hazlenut butter Smile

Do your meals vary much from day-to-day? Or do you stick to the same few meals and rotate through?

Fellow dessert lovers: what’s your staple dessert lately?
