I know it is late, but I still wanted to get in a post. I thought I would share where my nickname Ffit came from. Ffit is not a new name I made up just for the sake of this blog, my husband’s best friend nick named me this about 4 years and it stuck! I used to think it was silly, but never knew one day I would be able to use it for such a good cause. Fitness and I must have been meant to be, the word is even in my name!
Anyways… If you hadn’t had a chance to check out what I eat on a daily basis under the EATS tab, I thought I would share it now. It is usually the same everyday, just with variations of the type of lean meat I eat and the way I prepare it. This meal plan seems to work great for me, and you can use it as a guideline if you are new to clean eating. Once you get used to eating clean, you will be able to find what works for you and what doesn’t.
1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk, 1 scoop of Natural Whey Powder (I use Kaizen Naturals found at GNC), 1/2 frozen banana and 1 cup of spinach all blended together as a protein shake.
Breakfast (Post Workout)
Protein Pancakes – 1/2 cup rolled oats, 5 egg whites, cinnamon, 1-2 tbsp of flax seed, and 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Blend ingredients together and pour batter in pan and cook like normal pancakes. Heat 1/2 cup blueberries and place on top of pancakes (I use the blueberries instead of syrup).
Berry Protein Shake – 1/2 cup Almond Milk, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 scoop of whey protein, 2 cups of spinach, and 2 tbsp chia seeds. Blend all ingredients together.
Greek Yogurt & Berries- 3/4 cup of Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt & 1/2 cup of berries (frozen or fresh). You can add Stevia if the yogurt is too tart.
5 oz lean meat (chicken, fish, or turkey), 3/4 cup sweet potato or rice and vegetables (broccoli, asparagus, carrots, or spinach salad)
*I never eat just plain meat. The recipes I post on my blog, are the recipes I use to make my food enjoyable)
Protein Shake – 1 cup almond milk & 1 scoop of whey protein and an apple or carrots.
1 cup of cottage cheese and an apple
1 apple with 1 tbsp of almond/peanut butter
5 oz of lean meat and vegetables.
*If I am weight training at night I will have my carbohydrates for supper instead of lunch (ie. sweet potato or brown rice)
Protein Shake – 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1 scoop of whey protein/casein, 1 tbsp of nut butter and 1 cup of spinach.
I use the Jamie Eason Livefit Meal Phase 1 meal plan as a guideline for my eating. After completing the Trainer twice, I have found what works for me and what doesn’t.
