Another day at work. These 12 hour shifts take a lot of planning! Yesterday, i did not plan that well. I knew this because i was starving by 5pm. With 2 1/2 hours before i could go home. Not good! I always make my lunch the night before, so I made sure to add lots of goodies.
I made sure to have lots of food packed and ready.
6am: eggs, broccoli, and peppers
9am: protein coffee. Brought to work in a water bottle
1pm: cashews pecans
2pm: cauliflower mash, watermelon, one pancake
5pm: 2 babybel cheese
(didnt eat the apple or nuts.)
8pm: shrimp + watermelon
workout: none. but I did have over 10,000 steps at work. I had to pick up andrew at my parents, and then get him in bed.
I did a lot better in making sure I had healthy eats on hand. I know that when I get hungry, I go for something that is easy. That is why you see a lot of small snacks that can be eaten on the run, or when you have a free moment. sometimes it gets crazy in the NICU. For the future, I will just make sure I have a full lunch box 🙂
So I got a few questions about the protein coffee and it is SUPER easy! I followed along to this recipe, just changed a few things.
- 1 cup cold coffee
- 1 scoop protein powder
- a few iced cubes of almond milk *
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1.) Make coffee the night before and place in frig. (or make that day and put in freezer for a bit)
- 2.) Place all ingredients in a cup or blender and blend. I used my smart stick
* You can also just add almond milk and ice cubes.
Super easy and you get some sweet coffee, with lasting protein powder, and without the extra carbs/sugar! I highly recomend it
Question for you:
