Had a great first day today. Here is a picture I took in the gym locker room after my workout.
I am feeling super strong and well nourished! 64 oz of water down and hope to drink 64 more by the end of the night. Here are my eats for the day:
Meal 1 – 1/2 cup cooked quinoa with 1 scoop PlantFusion protein powder mixed in (yummmm!)
Meal 2 – Half of a container of tofu mixed with 1/2 scoop protein powder (this was my pre-workout snack)
Meal 3 – After my workout, I had 1/2 cup cooked quinoa with the other half scoop of protein powder.
Meal 4 – salad greens with a little bit of carrots, cucumbers and red peppers mixed in. Dressing was a big blob of dijon mustard and red wine vinegar mixed in. I topped that with a boca burger.
Meal 5 – This will be eaten with my family at a Chinese restaraunt. It will most likely be steamed veggies without sauce and tofu.
Meal 6 – 1 scoop protein powder in the blender with a boatload of ice and a cup of almond milk.
I will update you on my macronutrients in my next post so I can be sure that they are accurate after they have been eaten 🙂
