A clean eating day with me

A few of you have asked so I thought I would answer what a day of "clean eating" looks like for me.

I usually eat clean on the days I train hard with my trainer, or days I do a lot of cardio. In my mind, if I've spent all that time working out, I want it to count so I feel like I'm on top of my game when it comes to what I eat.

Breakfast- 1 slice of sourdough bread with all natural PB or two eggs.

Snack- String cheese or a few pieces of beef jerky.

Lunch- Thin sliced deli meat from the deli (I love the blazing buffalo chicken), or a salad with light Italian dressing. If I do eat just the deli meat I will throw in an apple or orange with it.

Late snack-  a few pieces of dark chocolate or a small handful of nuts

Dinner- Lean meat like shrimp or chicken with something green. My favorites are roasted brussel sprouts and roasted asparagus.

We eat dinner pretty early around our house usually between 5 and 6. On my clean eating days I try really hard to let dinner be the last thing I eat, but if I stay up late and start feeling really hungry I will go grab another string cheese, or a small piece of fruit.

I know this probably sounds crazy to eat so little in a day, but  I only do this two or three days out of the week. It allows me to cheat and pretty much eat what I want the other days, and for me, that's worth it!

This is one of my favorite ways to roast brussel sprouts!! Super quick and super delicious!!
