WIAW

It's been a while, so I thought I'd do another addition of "What I Ate Wednesday"!

Not too much has changed with my eating style. In the last few months I have increased my pre-workout meal(breakfast) from a 1/2 cup oats to 3/4 cup oats and a half a banana on training days. I also increased my post workout carbs from 30-40 grams to now somewhere around 60 grams. On rest days, I've upped carbs slightly and have been drinking milk as an easy way to get in extra calories, since it worked for me before!

I still usually eat every 3-4 hours, 4-6 meals per day(I'm old school), protein and carbs with every meal, and plenty of fats with my eggs, cheese, and peanut butter. Still loving my post workout treats, like cereal and soft serve ice cream. Still not meticulously tracking calories or macros. Still lacking in veggies, but I do get them in them, moreso on my rest days.
I cannot understand why there are still people out there who don't get how I can eat cereal and stay lean. I get comments like how "lucky" I am that I can eat that stuff...because I mean, you have to eat nothing but chicken, tilapia, and broccoli to get lean, right? Arrgghh, I just wish more people could realize that, look, you can eat that stuff too-just stay within your calorie goal, measure out your portions, and eat whatever the heck you want to eat(within reason of course...because health, duh). Like someone one Instagram said in response to how she eats sweet treats: "I put it in my mouth, chew it, and swallow it." Bahahaha! Perfect.

Breakfast
3/4 cup oats, 1 spoon of peanut butter, 1 scoop chocolate protein, 1/2 banana, coffee with cream

4ish oz lean ground turkey, 1 cup rice, 2 spoonfuls of salsa
