I spent most of my day Sunday preparing meals. There's more dishes in my sink than a restaurant at dinner time and it was difficult to stuff all of Dave's portions into the container.. Buuut a few hours later and we had meals all prepared for two days. Yes.. two days worth... we eat a lot. So here it is.
I have a bootcamp at 6:15 so I was up at 5 to have some breakfast, get to the gym to clean and make the workout.
2 hard boiled eggs, no yolk
(don't leave eggs outside to freeze and then cook them.. they don't taste good)
I do the workouts during classes, but I don't give it my all.. so I burned about 500 calories during bootcamp
After class I went home to eat my second breakfast with Dave
1 egg with yolk
3 medium mushroom cooked with my egg
Dave of course ate about 3x how much I ate
We made our way to Stop & Shop and read every label we could of some of our favorite foods to find something that could work with this way of eating. What we learned- THERE'S SO MUCH CRAP IN EVERYTHING!! We left the store feeling a little grossed out by some of the ingredients of our favorite foods but a little exited to do this together
1c almond milk
1 protein bar.. it's clean yay! GfB peanut butter
Workout: 2 hours of upper body strength, bodyweight and core. I was shaking 40 minutes in.. so.. hungry..
A very much needed post-workout lunch
5oz chicken made yesterday
1/4c quinoa prepared yesterday
1/2c sweet potatoes prepared yesterday

The most delicious dinner ever. See picture above
Feta tomato basil chicken over rice
4 oz chicken
6 grape tomatoes cut in half
2 leaves on basil (learned this on Bar Rescue.. slap the basil against your hand before adding it to bring out flavors)
1/2c brown rice
1 TBS feta cheese (to make this clean eating you must only get blocked feta cheese.. the crumbed cheese has a lot of additives)

Dave and I are not going for weight loss, but as of today (3/3/15) I have lost 3 pounds and Dave is down 2.8. Our energy levels are about the same but we're hungry constantly. When your body doesn't have to process through all of the bad stuff food is digested a lot quicker, which we're definitely feeling.
