Weekly Meals Preped!

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

For those of you who are not on my facebook friends list... Here is what ive been doing lately to control my eating!

I take 10-15mins on either the sunday or monday (whichever day is my weeks sunday before i start work) and chop up prep and portion all my breakfasts and lunches and snacks

This was my Greens and Veggies for this week The Large Containers have my Baby Arugula Greens with 3 tbsp of Goats Cheese. Those i use at lunch time. The Smaller square containers are my Morning Greens 3/4 Baby Kale and 1/4 Baby Spinach those go into my breakfast smoothies. The Red Container is a large container of Prepped Cherry Tomatoes tossed in Olive Oil with herbs and a few small Boccocini cheese balls. The other container is Whole Foods 365 Yellow Sweet Corn. the 2 bags are both Baby Kale portions i can use for last minute snacks with a little sauce or added to a sandwich at dinner.



This is my Breakfast Cupboard.... On the Top Shelf are all my Vega Sport Powders, my Ultimate Daily Greens and Vega Sugar Free Energizer. I also have my Omega 3 Suppliment pills. The little containers in the pic are my oatmeals all portioned out. All i do is add 3/4 cup of skim milk and stick in the fridge overnight and in the morning its done and i just grab it and eat, blend my smoothie together and go! its quick and painless. there are also my Kashi Cereals and a few of the kashi ziploc bags i can take them raw when i do a long walk or run for some energy just as is or grab a cup of milk at starbucks somewhere and add in for a quick snack. The bars are my diabetic Extend bars. I eat one everynight before bed to help manage blood sugar overnight! they are awesome and do the job!

The Perfect Snack ideas (under 200 Cals)

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

From your Friendly Nutritionist (Aminowellness)

So are you struggling to figure out what snacks are a great option to enjoy mid-day to keep us going till dinner or mid-morning till lunch...

Step 1 - did you have a good solid breakfast???? well if you did and you followed my Build a Better Breakfast Tip Blog then you really shouldn't need a heavy snack or any snack at all before lunch! So maybe go back and look at what your breakfast looks like and find more filling lower cal foods that have fiber and protein to fuel you up longer to get yourself to lunch.

Oh SNAP!

Okay so now its 3pm and your getting hungry... Lets see whats we can do about that...

Step 1 - Are you really Hungry or are you tired from lack of sleep last night or just thirsty and need some water???

Step 2 - Okay you are hungry and need a pick me up... So lets try to keep our afternoon snacks under 200kcals and lets try to find a Complex Carb with Protein or Protein with Complex Carb!

Heres my Top Picks!

3/4cup of Liberte Plain 0% Greek Yogurt + 1/2 cup Fresh Berries (or 1/4cup Fresh Tropical Fruits) - 140cals

1oz. of Low Fat cheese + 1/2 medium Apple sliced - 160cals

1 Slice little Big Bread (cut in half) + 2 tbsp of PB2 + 1/2 Small Banana sliced = 140cals (a twist on a mini Peanut butter Banana sandwich)

1 Tall Nonfat Skinny Vanilla Latte (hot or Iced) - 90cals

Baked Zucchini Sticks - Cup 1 Zucchini into French Fry sized match sticks and bake in the oven till golden brown. Sprinkle 1tbsp of low fat cheese over and broil to melt cheese on top. Make a dip of 1tbsp Greek Yogurt, 1tbsp Mustard, 1tsp Honey. Delicious! - 90cals

Carrots and Hummus dip (15 Carrot Sticks + 2tbsp light hummus) - 105cals

Small White Bean Salad: 1/3 cup of white beans with 1 tablespoon of sliced scallions, a squeeze of lemon juice, 1tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup diced mushrooms 1/4 cup of diced tomatoes. - 115cals Remember beans are a good source of dietary fiber, protein, and iron.

Southwest Spinach Salad: 1 cup baby spinach leaves, 1/3 cup of Black beans, 1/4 cup of Corn, 1/3 cup diced tomatos. in a seperate bowl mix your favourite southwest spices like Cyaene pepper, garlic and the like and mix with 2 tbsp fresh salsa (mixed with 1tsp of balsamic and 1tsp mustard) - 125cals

8 Strawberries Sliced with 1.5tbsp of Goats Cheese - 105cal

1 Enlightened Ice Cream Bar - Coffee orMango is only 70cals (8g Protein, 5g Fiber BTW)

Well there you have it! Enjoy your favourite snack here with a LARGE glass of Water and your good to go! Enjoy guilt free these delicious snacks knowing your putting good healthy food into your body to get you fueled till dinner!

Have a healthy Day - John
