Every week going forward I am going to upload a post, ideally on Sunday, as a sort of food diary entry where I’ll include my meal plan ideas for that week.I am also going to include a workout diary entry which will include my workout split, HIIT and Cardio workouts etc for the week. But I’ll upload that under the workouts tab.
So 2 days late, but better late than never, here is this week’s food entry and a rundown of how I prepped everything J
For those who checked out my snapchat story on Sunday, this is a similar run through of what went down on that. Going forward, I will upload the food prep post on Saturday, and run through it then step by step over on my snapchat on Sunday afternoons which is when I do my meal prep.
I will also include a shopping list on my snapchat for you all to screenshot.
Oats or Overnight Oats.
This breakfast can be prepared in the morning or the night before, and makes for a quick and easy cold winter’s morning breakfast which ideally can also be eaten in work/college. There is nothing like a bowl of porridge to get you fuelled for the day.
– 45g of Oats (1 ½ scoops)
– 120ml of Almond Milk/Milk/Water
– Handful of raspberries/blueberries
– Half banana
– Drizzle of honey/Sugar Free Syrup
– 1 scoop Protein powder (Optional – makes for a perfect post-workout meal, if you’re like me and get your training done before breakfast.)
If making it fresh in the morning:
1. Place oats and milk/water into a bowl. Add protein powder now if you are adding it in. Stir.
2. Place in the microwave for 3 mins, stir after 2, and reheat for another minute.
3. Top with toppings and enjoy.
For overnight oats, grab a jar.
1. Place oats and milk/water into a bowl. Add in protein powder and stir.
2. Top with Toppings
3. Leave in the fridge overnight.
4. Grab and go.
5. Optional: heat for 1-2 minutes.
