Yesterday I enjoyed an outdoor event with family and friends. It was a large gathering of food trucks, music, drinks and I think I may have gone a little overboard on sampling the food!
I find that when my week is most stressful, the end of the week is most difficult to eat healthy. By the end of the week I’m tired and have given up on meal prepping or any forethought for nutrition had home out the window.
I know better than this, because I usually know my week will be busy at the very beginning. It’s very important that I stock my fridge with easy-to-grab fresh fruits and vegetables as well as making sure my pantry is stocked with oats and other whole grains that will keep me full and give me the nutrients I need.
This Saturday morning I enjoyed a very simple breakfast of plain Greek yogurt, granola, fresh strawberries, and a drizzle of honey.
With the portions I had of 2/3 cup of Greek yogurt and only 1/4 cup of granola – the entire meal was only 257 cal, but 19 g of protein. I purposely made the meal small so that I will be hungry in the next 2 to 3 hours and can really rev up my metabolism.
I hope your weekend is going well – I’m in for another busy day! Talk to you soon, healthy bunnies!
