A Day in Food Vol. 3

If you’ve been keeping track, this is the THIRD volume of a Day in Food, and the third day of meals I’ve made using items from the same grocery haul from the first and second volume. While these healthy meal recipes may not be THAT creative (or even Instagram-able) they’re effortless to make in a pinch and results in little food waste at the end of the week.

Here are a few more healthy meals to give you ideas for your own meal prep, PLUS a grocery list for you to use to recreate (for all THREE volumes).

Rice Cakes + Egg Whites + Avocado + Applegate Chicken Sausage

Applegate is my favorite brand for chicken sausage – every flavor is delish. If you make this, I would mash the avo and spread on the rice cake as opposed to adding slices as a topper. The pictured variety is messy as fahk.

Kitchen Sink Chili + Shredded Cheddar Cheese + Siete Chips

One of my favorite “recipes” HERE, but check out THIS ONE out if you need a bit more structure. Make a big batch and then eat for lunch throughout the rest of the week.

Beware of the Siete chips; they’re like the healthy man’s Pringles. They are SO GOOD, BUT IT’S REALLY EASY TO EAT THE WHOLE BAG. If that ever happens to you – don’t feel bad. It happens to all of us.

Iconic Protein Shake

I recently discovered the Iconic Protein brand and I. AM. OBSESSED. I’m not 100% into protein supplements, but right now I’m strictly counting my protein macro, and some days it’s HARD to meet goal. I consume MOST of my protein from whole, fresh foods, but lately, I’ve been incorporating a shake a few times per week.

This company sent me their powder and pre-mixed product, and I’ve been talking about it – and drinking it – nonstop. Love it.

  • Iconic Protein Chocolate Truffle Powder
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 12g PB 2
  • Ice

Blend it all up and drink it on-the-go.

Shredded Kimchi Chicken + Sweet Potatoes + Sauteed Spinach

Roast your chicken. Shred your chicken. Mix it with a tablespoon or two of THIS kimchi hot sauce. I roasted the sweet potatoes in the oven with nothing but salt and pepper, and then made THIS sauteed spinach.

Greek Yogurt + PB2 + Chocolate Chips (not pictured)

Siggi’s is my fav Greek Yogurt, another two scoops of PB2, and a TBS or two of chocolate chips. More protein, and a little bit of sweetness.

Okay – here’s the list. If you read THIS post you know that ordering your list in ORDER of the story is crucial. I’m not sure what your Whole Foods look like, but mine follows the below. Do a little plug and play if you see anything out of place for your needs.

This list provides ingredients for the meals shown in each individual post – so double up on anything you may want to eat more than once!
