What I Ate Wednesday

I haven't done this in a while, so here ya go! Food police/Paleo/Clean eaters-look away!

8:00 Pre-workout 
3/4 cup oats(pre-cooked) + half banana, 1 scoop MuscleTech whey protein, 1 spoonful natural peanut butter


Meal 2

Meal 3 Lunch
2 Vans Gluten free blueberry waffles with Walden farm's syrup, 2 eggs, 2 whites scrambled with mozarella cheese


Meal 4 Afternoon snack
3-ish oz chicken, 1 small Fuji apple, 1/2 cup green beans(just because I had some leftover)

4-ish oz mixed lean turkey and lean beef, 1 cup rice, 2 spoons salsa


Meal 6 Bedtime snack
3/4 cup 2% cottage cheese, 1 rice cake, 2 spoonfuls of natural peanut butter


I've been trying to get my leg day calories to around 2500, but I'm not currently tracking so it may be a little under that. I try to just increase my portions slightly on leg day.
 Someone on Instagram asked if I worry about getting in enough veggies. My answer? No. I don't. There was a time when I did, but I no longer stress about it anymore. I despise them and am not going back to the days when I would literally choke them down with water. I do eat more vegetables on rest days, and I also have green smoothies, potatoes, and fruits, so I think I'll be okay even if I don't eat pounds of vegetables a day. That's just the way it's going to be, and it's not something I'm going to let bother me.
As always, I'm not concerned about being super lean, and I've gained maybe a pound in the last few months. My main priority right now(and forever) is eating foods I love, feeling full and satisfied, and fueling my workouts. I have a beach trip coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm not changing anything with my diet, abs or no abs!

  1. No macro police here but...I bet that's less than 2000 calories and that's on leg day. It really doesn't matter as long as you are happy with your weight. It's also difficult to say what you eat if you don't measure anything. There's nothing wrong with eating what you like but maybe if you don't count calories you shouldn't bring it up.

    1. I actually tracked this a few weeks ago, with the only thing different being potatoes instead of waffles, and it was 2500 calories. DEFINITELY above 2000 calories.You seem to think I'm not eating as much as I think I am, when in actuality just because I don't track daily, I eat the same portions every day so from previous tracking I DO know that I'm above 2000 calories.I do track occasionally calories to make sure that I'm not starting to "slack", and I always above 2200 calories. And I never said I don't measure. I do measure my meat, oats, cereal, potatoes, etc. I just don't worry about it being right to the exact GRAM. It's not something I stress about in life. Thanks for the input, although it does sound like a "food police" comment.
