🥘EVENING NUTRITION 4/4🥗
Who doesn’t love banking their calories for a big meal at the end of the day? Hell, if you’ve followed me for any length of time you already know I do…There’s probably nothing more annoying to me than trying to go to sleep not feeling satiated by what you’ve eaten, and I’ve spent a great deal of time messing around with variances in food types, density, variety, etc. to find what keeps me satisfied before bed.
Many times, this is where I hit/cap off the remainder of my macros, and since I don’t use too many calories during the day (just enough to keep energy levels and MPS up), I can enjoy a good portion and variety of food. The idea here is simple, here’s what the meal consists of and why:
🥗Salad: 8-12oz of baby spinach to get additional micros and I always enjoy a big salad.
🍳Eggs: High-quality protein/fat source for MPS also containing choline and some Omega-3s.
🍿Popcorn: Airpopped for an organic whole food source of fiber, savory flavor, and extra volume.
🍦Pro-ice Cream: Homemade (see recipe), minimal fat, high protein (casein) for MPS, scratches itch 😛
🥣Cereal: Majority puffed wheat with 1-3 servings of sweet cereals. Some carbs and a good crunch/mixin.
Additional reasons for my food choices:
▪️Baby spinach contains small amounts of Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, and Potassium.
▪️Eggs contain Vitamin A, B2, B5, B12, Selenium
▪️Popcorn contains Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, Folic acid, Magnesium, Selenium, and Zinc.
-▪️Homemade ice cream saves money on store-bought brands, more volume, lower cals, healthier overall.
▪️Cereal actually contains some vitamins and nutrients and lately I’ve preferred less sweet options like Rice Chex and always like a healthy dose of puffed wheat…again, makes for a nice crunchy mix in.
