You know what’s hard? Eating a lot of food when you aren’t hungry. If you missed last Friday’s post, I’m working with a new trainer–and have a date for a competition. So that means it’s time to add in food–and an increase in carbs! Oops, you mean I can’t live on jars of almond butter anymore?
You know what isn’t too hard? Getting lots of protein on a vegetarian diet. 165g in this day of eats!
You know what’s random? I somehow ended up with all my meals being in/on/around blue things. I think my meal settings matched my blue lack-of-hunger levels this week.
Toast with scrambled eggs whites and tomato. Topped with cinnamon.
Don’t judge my flavor combos, tomato + cinnamon is amazing.
Cottage cheese mixed with vanilla protein powder and topped with berries and a spoonful of almond butter.
Heaven in a plastic cup.
Zucchini bread oatmeal.
I usually get weird looks from coworkers as I pull out containers of strange foods all day, but this one got some positive feedback. Nothing like “fresh bread” in the morning.
Smokey fennel’d cabbage and baked tofu.
This one didn’t get compliments from the coworkers. I need to pick less smelly vegetables to love.
Indian red lentils with homemade faux-chicken and kale.
Packed and ready for the week.
Noochy egg whites and roasted bell pepper.
My best friend was over, and I wanted a five-minute meal so I wasn’t interrupting friend time to hang out in the kitchen. So scrambled eggs round 2.
Chocolate-protein fluff with frozen cherries. And sweet potato. Because carbs.
I was pretty full all day, but by the time this meal came around? I was incredibly not hungry, and even chocolate didn’t make this meal more appealing. I may or may not have not eaten half of this (oops…), and I still woke up the next morning unexcited about solid food…
What do you do to get excited about food? Favorite source of veggie protein?
