As a nutritionist I get asked A LOT about what I eat. Clients and non-clients alike really seem to like to know what I’m putting in my pie hole (hint: it’s not pie) on the regular and, well, who am I to withhold the inner workings of my lunch pale? While I never wanted this site to be one of those “fitness” blogs where the writer just recounts what she eats every day, I can see the value in occasionally snapping a photo of my meals before I scarf them back (though, that has proven challenging since I very much like to eat!) so people can find a little inspiration for putting together healthy meals of their own.
A disclaimer, though, before we get started with this first-time experiment. Firstly, I eat a lot. I train like an athlete, which burns a lot of calories, so I have to take a lot of them in. I’m in no way suggesting anyone copy my style of eats—especially those who don’t exercise rigorously and regularly. That’s why nutritionists have jobs in the first place, right? Meal plans are not a one size fits all deal; there’s a lot of specifics that go into concocting a meal plan and a lot of tweaking that happens from there. This is what works for me…for now. And secondly, my eats are not pretty! No food porn here. Just the straight up, macro-nutrient measured, tasty stuff. Looks not so good…tastes oh so good. That’s my motto.
