This morning before I did my first Turbo Fire class I had a pre workout of a sandwich slim with a bit of peanut butter and half a banana. I found these sandwich slims on accident when I was looking for wheat bread. Basically it’s bread sliced a lot thinner and you can use it for sandwiches or burgers. They’re whole wheat and are ONLY 90 calories for 2 slices. I count calories only because I want to know exactly what I put in my body and how much I’m burning. I would recommend getting these sandwich slims. When I first got them there was only one brand but last time I want I saw they are making more. These are good carbs, no white bread!
This was my post workout/breakfast I had 2 eggs with a slice of singles cheese and a whole grain tortilla. It is okay to eat an egg a day but if you have high cholesterol you might want to start with eggs whites only. I love eggs and they’re also a good source of protein. I ran out of egg whites so I just had regular eggs. On the side I also had some oatmeal with half a banana and a cup of unsweeted almond milk blended. I would say my breakfast was under 400 calories. You don’t have to count calories but if you’re looking to lose weight you have to eat a certain amount of calories a day. I don’t weigh myself because I’m not trying to lose weight I am trying to be healthy.
For lunch I had tilapia with a tiny bit of light soy sauce and Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning. Note you don’t want to season your meat with too many ingredients. I use Mrs. Dash because it’s salt free and comes in different flavors. I had a side of cheesy brown rice I made. The brown rice I get comes in boxes and it only takes 10 minutes to cook. I added a little bit of fat free cheese for flavoring.
For dinner I made Spanish brown rice with black beans and a turkey patty. I am still debating on working out a 2nd time tonight. Note these are all small portions. Make sure you don’t overfeed yourself. I will post the Spanish brown rice recipe soon. Keep reading!
