Everything I Ate in A Week

In addition to Beauty Files, one of the other things you asked to see more of in our End of the Year Survey was my food journal posts so I am looking forward to keeping up with those. This one was a little indulgent because it was the New Year. I had used MyFitnessPal app to track macros pretty much up until December 24th and then I fell off the wagon with it. Once January 1st rolled around, though, I got back on, which is why you'll notice my meals were a little more dialed in.

My food goals right now are to just continue to eat whole, real foods, with a healthy balance of fats, carbs and proteins, all the while focusing on micronutrients to help keep my hormones balanced and my skin clear

Sunday:

  • Breakfast - Sprouted ezekiel toast, 2 eggs, mushrooms and spinach cooked in bone broth
  • Snack: caramelized onion hummus
  • Lunch: Wild salmon over pureed cauliflower, pomegranate brussels sprouts
  • Pre-workout (use code yogabycandace for a discount!) and Vital Proteins collagen peptides
  • Not pictured: Rootz Nutrition protein powder (use code yogabycandace for a discount) and a scoop of Biohm Greens Powder
  • Dinner: Salad and half the salmon from lunch

Monday: 

Tuesday: 

  • Breakfast: 1/2 sweet potato, Ezekiel Toast, 2 eggs, spinach, sausage*, onion
  • Lunch: Pasta with sauce and nutritional yeast**, 1 meatball (organic ground pork and beef, made with 2 eggs, seasoning and chia seeds)
  • Pre-workout: Rootz nutrition pre-workout and collagen peptides
  • Post-workout: SFH protein powder
  • Dinner: Wild salmon, jade rice, brussels sprouts
  • Snack: Perfect Bar mini 

*For sausage, I try to find one that has no sugar and without anything artificial. The ingredients should just be pork, spices, salt. 

**Nutritional yeast has a ton of really beneficial micronutrients, and has been key in helping to balance my hormones. It has a sort of cheesy flavor, so I'll sprinkle on top of popcorn, pasta or eggs. 

Wednesday: 

  • Breakfast - Blended kefir, yogurt, blueberries, blackberries, collagen peptides, Biohm Greens Powder
  • Mid-morning drink: Mushroom Hot Chocolate (tastes just like regular hot chocolate but the mushrooms are great for your immune system)
  • Lunch: Cauliflower stir-fry (cooked in bone broth and 4th and Heart ghee I put chopped cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, purple jewel yams, onions, curry powder, ground cinnamon, ground turkey) also chopped up a sausage link and put it in there as well. 
  • Dinner: 1 yam, roasted chicken, brussels sprouts, Jacobsen Salt (it's really important to switch up your salts so you get a variety of minerals with each meal)

Thursday:

  • Breakfast - 1/2 orange, 2 eggs with spinach and sausage, 1 piece of sprouted sourdough raisin toast
  • Lunch: Cauliflower mash with a meatball and Farmhouse Culture Kim Chi
  • Dinner: Pasta with pesto, green beans, broccoli and nutritional yeast
