I bought some books. I had too. I'd like to know your simple go to meals and snacks. xoxox....

My go-to snacks are: an apple OR the cranberry almond thins (red box from Costco... individually wrapped at 100 cals) w/ almond butter,
an egg & one egg white w/ an orange, yogurt, veggies w/ hummus &/or tzaziki, almonds... What I have for my morning snack (meal) will determine what I'll have for my afternoon one (like, I wouldn't have fruit both times, for eg)

My go to meals are I always have a huge salad in the fridge & I'll vary what my protein is that goes with it.  Like an egg & an egg white with walnuts (that's my fave right now).  Or a chicken breast, or shrimp.  At lunch time I'll have a piece of Ezikiel 3:9 bread w/ tzaziki.  Supper is usually a salad again w/ a different source of protein & my carbs come from fibrous veggies at that point (no traditional carbs after about 3 or 4pm)  If I'm sick of salad I'll saute spinach & mushrooms w/ shrimp & lots of garlic/chilies.

Usually I'm eating after my bootcamp in the evening, so I'm not hungry enough to have an evening snack, but if I am, I'll have yogurt w/ fruit or if I want something "bad" I'll take a few individually wrapped 85% cacao dark chocolate squares & dip them in almond butter.  YUM!

Now I'm not perfect & I'll freak out every now & then... but my freak outs are more controlled & conscious than they were in the I'll get a mini one flavour blizzard instead of a medium two flavoured one.  And I'll let myself have a nice restaurant meal every once and a while.  That way I won't go crazy.

Now that I'm done the competition, I'm okay with losing at a slower, consistent pace.  I KNOW the rest of the weight will come off... I have confidence in that fact (something I never had before :)  I just have to keep working!

Keep the questions coming guys... I love it!
