I almost didn't write this post. Almost. Why? Because I didn't plan ahead and write it on the weekend. Yesterdays post was a weekend write and it was so nice just to see my post going out into the blogging world without draining myself during the workweek. Don't you love that? Perhaps I'll start taking What I Ate Wednesday on the Weekend Pictures. It'll certainly hold me more accountable...who else has troubles staying focused on clean eats during the weekend?
But for today, we still have foods from Tuesday. The highlight being an overdone omelet. hahaha! Really it wasn't too bad. I made it with one egg and three egg whites, tomatoes, and mushrooms. It would have been perfect if it hadn't been on the stove one minute too long.Really, how can you mess up mushrooms? mmmm....mushrooms.
Despite the fact that it's soy, I'm loving having the EAS in my morning smoothie. It really does taste good (I have vanilla). I could just save it for after a workout but I love smoothie in the morning and having some protein with it rounds everything out. However, the cottage cheese is great for a post workout snack. It gives your body protein and carbohydrates. Although I'd recommend it with just some fruit instead of with toast. I just love toast.
There are a couple of things to remember about post workout snacks. They still count into your daily calorie / macro total. Just because you worked out doesn't make it a freebie. Also, make sure the workout is sufficiently hard before you take in those calories. If you walked around the block with your dog then you probably don't need anything to help your muscles recover. If you just ran a marathon you do.
Well, it's 3 am and I should get in a quick nap because I'd really like to get a run in before work. I don't have any miles in this week yet. Oops...I promise I'm getting better.
