Here’s what I ate:
Breakfast: Shakeology with Oats
Meal 1 calls for protein and starch. Since I always drink Shakeology (click to see a funny video with Tony Horton) for breakfast, I simply added a starch (whole oats) to my shake. Oats give the shake a cookie-like texture. Yum.
Morning Snack: Quinoa Salad, Raw Mixed Nuts
Meal 2 is protein and veggies or a starch. I made a big batch of mango veggie quinoa salad to take to work for my protein and veggie snack. Normally, I don’t eat this type of food as a morning snack, but I really enjoyed it. I actually felt full and satisfied unlike with my usual carrot stick snack. Protein tends to make me hungrier, so I had my standard raw mixed nuts as well.
Lunch: Salmon Salad
Meal 3 is protein and veggies with a starch three times a week. I cooked salmon for the first time and made enough for a couple salads. I neglected to prep additional veggies for my salad, so I just added raw broccoli and a little bit of quinoa salad.
Afternoon: Cucumber Tomato Basil Salad
Meal 4 is ALL VEGGIES. Eating veggies in the afternoon is very abnormal for me, but again, eating a full container of prepared veggies was refreshing. I feel like I’ve been eating all day, but it’s all healthy and fresh foods.
Dinner: Grilled Fish Tacos
Meal 5 is Protein and Veggies again. I actually splurged a little with this meal since I got the tacos with the fried shells. The taco contents – grilled tilapia, pico de gallo, and slaw – definitely passed the test. I’m surprised this is the first time Flying Fish fish tacos have appeared on WIAW. This is my favorite meal to eat in Memphis. I eat them at least once a week
Meal 6 is optional. Three hours after dinner, you can have more veggies with optional protein. Some nights, I’ll have a second shake or a handful of raw nuts. Usually, I’m not too hungry at 9PM.
So far, I’m quite pleased with this meal plan. I can see myself following it for a while.
