Nutrition – What I Eat in a Day



When it comes to health and fitness goals, nutrition is by far the hardest for people to get down. I’ve learned first-hand that working out alone will not get you the results you’re looking for, you have to include diet when tackling your goals. With that said, nutrition and diet is often a mystery for most on where to start and how to be successful. I’ve hit the meal plan that Zach and I follow in several posts (linked here: track food, why we switched to plantbased) but today I wanted to give you a snap shot of what I eat in one day and how I time that out to stay full and stay focused on my goals!


My meal plan has changed slightly for me during pregnancy but not a ton. I’ve only added 300 extra calories to my day, the extra calories I’ve added I put an ** by it. I track all of my food/meals through myfitnesspal as well as using the container count that I mentioned in a previous post!







Breakfast -- 7 AM:

½ cup quick oats oatmeal

1 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp honey nut granola

2 strawberries halved

Handful of blueberries (5-10)

1 cup Ultrasilk Soy Protein Chocolate Milk**

1 plantbased breakfast sausage**




Total Calories: approximately 560








Mid-Morning Snack – 10 AM:

1 scoop café latte shakeology

1 cup spinach

¼ frozen banana

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

4-6 ice cubes





Total Calories: approximately 190






Lunch – 12:00 PM:

½ cup brown rice

1 cup roasted broccoli

½ cup sweet potatoes


2 cutie oranges





Total Calories: approximately 410






Afternoon Snack #1 – 2:30 PM:

½ oat lavish

1 tbsp peanut butter

1 cup jicama



Total Calories: approximately 150



Afternoon Snack #2 – 4:30 PM:

1 cup fruit mix: strawberries & grapes

1 protein ball**


Total Calories: 170






Dinner – 6:30 PM:

Tacos –

2 whole wheat soft tortillas

1 cup plantbased meat crumbles

1/3 cup non-fat refried beans

4 tbsp salsa


Total Calories: 365



It's nothing fancy and it's all super easy to prep and eat during a busy work day! Like I said I haven't added a bunch of extra calories yet because my body hasn't felt the need for it. If I start to feel hungry and need to add extra calories I will always reach for fruit/vegetables and a protein first then treat myself to something sweet/indulgent at the end of the day! It's all about tracking and knowing what you're putting in your body!
