What I Eat in a Day

If you don’t know by now this Italian girl loves to eat! Lol It’s one of Bryan and I’s favorite thing to do together. When it comes to meeting some of my fitness goals it’s all about balance and planning my meals. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have a lot of days where we just order Postmates. With the kids and our busy schedules, it’s pretty frequent in our house LOL. But when I’m trying to stay lean, the key for me is to plan my meals! It makes it so much easier to stick to specific foods even when I have my craziest of weeks. I love to do this on Sunday nights.

I’ll cook up the following foods. Once it’s all cooked, I plate them in meal prep glass containers (my fave are these ones). When we’re ready to eat the food, I heat everything up in a pan. I try not to microwave!

This food will be lunch and dinners for us. If the whole family is eating this, it will usually last us till Wednesday. 

My Typical Meal Prep

Crispy brussels sprouts

Baked salmon

Grilled steak

Baked sweet potatoes

Broccoli / zucchini or any vegetable mix

Grilled chicken

Wild rice

Another big thing is watching what I snack on during the week. I can meal prep all I want but if I’m ruining it by eating shitty snacks all day it kind of defeats the purpose! These are my go-to healthy snacks I eat that are good for me but still totally satisfying! 

My Fave Healthy Snacks

Greek yogurt

Low-fat / fat-free cottage cheese. Such a good source of protein!

Carrots with fat-free ranch

Thin rice cakes with almond butter or peanut butter with drizzled agave

Almonds and apricots

Cucumber salad

Veggies and hummus

Hard-boiled eggs

Low sodium deli turkey with a rice cracker and cheese

One of the biggest things is that I stay away from is sugar! And things that will bloat me. I also drink a ton of water, literally so important!! I save the weekends for my cheat meals then back to it on Monday. 

My Typical Day of Eating


Two eggs scrambled with cheese

Multigrain toast with jelly

Liv body greens and superfood, & take my vitamins

During my workouts I’ll sip on my Liv body hydrating aminos. Right after my workout I have a protein shake. I use protein from Liv Body! Find all of my protein and supplement I take here.

Snack: Low fat cottage cheese with crushed pineapple

Lunch: Meal prep salmon, wild rice brussels sprouts

Dinner: Meal prep steak, sweet potatoes, and broccoli

Sweets: If I have a sweet tooth I’ll eat Greek yogurt with granola and agave or honey
Not every day is perfect but I do my best to stick to this! I love eating healthy since it makes me feel good and nourished, but like I said, sometimes you just need some Chic-Fil-A lol. At the end of the day, just make sure you’re fueling your body with good foods and prioritizing your health as best you can!
