New Year, new posts! I can’t believe it’s already February 29th, but that’s what happens when your life is consumed by work, dance, work, dance, work, dance….and of course, FOOD 🙂
So as a part of my neverending quest to eat yummy, healthy, delicious food, i’ve started doing some investigations into food for athletes and dancers. Obviously i’m not a professional dancer but I take enough classes that I know of how crucial nutrition is for someone building muscle!
So my intake for today is as follows:
Breakfast: My infamous oatmeal recipe with flax, almond milk, toasted walnuts, bananas and blueberries. See here (i do half for myself), averaging 400 calories, a great dose of carbs, protein, FIBER, fruit, good healthy fats, omegas and calcium (added in the almond milk!)
Lunch: Homemade quinoa with oven roasted mushrooms and butternut squash with cilantro + chickpeas (chickpea curry, really a lighter version of chana masala). So a great dose of kickass veggies + a great serving of protein and carbs…perfect and delicious
Snacks: I’m a huge snacker. Today ive got the following lined up: wasabi almonds, dark chocolate and a bag of strawberries. yum 🙂 Some good fats, protein and more fruit!
Dinner: A veggie burger esque sandwich – homemade veggie burgers – basically a combo of lentils, kale, onions, peppers and other veggies + some guacamole on Eli’s whole wheat bread.
Throughout the day: Loads of water + 1 calcium supplement. I’m also down to 2 cups of caffeine (coffee/tea) a week.
How do i feel? Great! But, still evolving as i think i am probably missing out on B-12…need to further investigate into this!
xoxo for now 🙂
