AM Snack–  Organic apple (or an organic piece of fruit) with a handful of either raw almonds or raw walnuts

Lunch–  Protein shake (I usually drink chocolate whey)

PM Snack– As much organic celery and organic hummus as I want, plus whole wheat crackers

Dinner–  A good piece of wild caught salmon with black pepper, parsley and lemon on it plus a monster salad and any type of dressing I think looks good

A little blur action!  : )

In addition, if I feel hungry during the day I might snack on more fruit, veggies, nuts, or whey protein as I feel is needed.  I also drink about 2-3 liter of water mixed with pure cranberry juice and plain water during the day.  This is what works for my body.  I am also taking in enough calories to propel me through my daily workouts without leaving me tired.  The weekends are a little bit more relaxed with what I like to eat.  Please consult with a doctor and RD before trying any new exercise program or meal plan.

What do your typical meals look like?  Are there certain foods that work with your body to make it lean?  I think eating this way makes my body feel the most energized and I sleep better at night too!  All the healthy fats, protein and vegetables make my hair, skin and nails grow like weeds and glow! 

Lunch today was a protein shake (powder + water).  I didn’t get a pic of it.  Before lunch I snacked on walnuts and drank my flax/chia seeds drink before I left for work.

    I admire your ability to workout so much! I cannot work out every day, how do you do that! I need at least one day off a week!

    All your meals look delicious! Eating healthy and the benefits it has for beauty and skin really make me want to cut out junk. I always think of this when I have cravings! =)

      My workouts are only really strict because the Husband and I are going on our Honeymoon in 16 days. I like doing yoga on my rest days because it just helps loosen up my muscles and I never overexert myself. Once were back I will def. add in rest days where I’m not doing anything at all.

      It’s amazing how eating the right foods can change your body so much in terms of beauty and skin. I truly believe that eating right is the key to the fountain of youth! : )
