I decided for this WIAW, I'd show what I ate yesterday, a rest day, since my Wednesday meals are pretty much always the same!

On rest days I eat 3 full meals, and 2 snacks/mini meals. I don't track anything. The only thing I weigh is my meat, and I just use a measuring cup to scoop out my oats. I have a big thing of nuts that I just take a handful out of for my morning snack, and I definitely don't know if my spoonful of peanut butter is a tablespoon or not! That's the freedom of not tracking macros!

I don't know what the calories are and don't really care, to be honest. It's enough for me to maintain where I'm at and feel satisfied and never hungry. And I enjoy all of my yummy meals! Workout days are usually more calories and carbs, since I have an added post workout meal and bigger carb portions on those days.

Coffee with Stevia and whole milk

1/2 cup oats, spoonful of peanut butter, 1 scoop protein

4 oz chicken, a handful of carrots, green beans, and a handful of mixed nuts(almonds, cashews, pistachios)

*Another cup of coffee with whole milk

Trader Joe's sweet Italian chicken sausage, 2 slices low carb sprouted grain bread, Greek yogurt cream cheese, 2 fried eggs, handful of grapes

This is what I call my "lazy person's" meal that I make when I don't have meat thawed out to cook! 1/2 cup rice, corn, 3-4 oz rinsed canned chicken, and 2 spoonfuls of salsa. And a cup of broccoli on the side. Typically rest day dinners are 3-4 oz of some type of meat(chicken or turkey usually), 30-40 grams of a carb source(potatoes, corn, rice, wrap, etc) and a veggie.

1 caramel rice cake topped with peanut butter, a heaping scoop of Micellar whey protein mixed with a spoonful of peanut butter and almond milk to make a "sludge"
