What I Eat In A Day | How I Make Healthy Choices When Out!
Jason 0 Comments Health for the Retired
So I thought today I would do a what I eat in a day and we’re just sitting down to breakfast now I went to the gym this morning and just had a plain black coffee citing like breakfast so for breakfast I ended up getting Eggs Benedict I substituted the bread for tomato the bacon first of my salmon and had asparagus on the side so we spent the morning shopping we went to Target Nordstrom Mac and now we are up on our way to lunch at the beach and I’m really excited I already know I’m gonna have a cold fruit but I’m not sure what I’m gonna have for lunch yet for lunch I opted for some local mahi-mahi on a bed of greens with my cold brew and some lemon water so I have a new favorite drink it’s kind of like a twist on a virgin mocktail especially since I don’t drink so you need at least one lime per drink one lemon I’m making two drinks and then some mint and some Pellegrino so you add in a bunch of mint obviously because it’s a virgin stem mojito the great thing is I like eating them mint after it’s great for your digestion and this one is no sugar so I know a traditional mojito has like sugar syrup or simple syrup I’m not gonna put syrup in because we’re our team no sugar over here so I do a full lime per drink I’m just kind of it muddled it a bit in the juice then I’m adding in one large ice cube these ones are like the super sized ice cubes as you can see and then top them off this is really green oh it’s just sparkling water all right let’s try ice it oh it’s so good it’s so refreshing so we have some chicken seasoning mine with the everything bagel spice and then some veggies and then for dinner I had some barbecued chicken some asparagus and some zucchini it was all so delicious and so fresh I love the produce here hey everyone so I got back late last night from my trip and I just wanted to touch on how I eat healthy when out or went on a vacation I’m just trying to stay on track honestly because eating healthy just makes me feel good so as you can see in the breakfast instead of bread I just substituted sliced tomato I got asparagus on the side and I just asked not to bring me toast and these little things like a lot of restaurants especially something like sliced tomato they definitely have it in their kitchen and they’re usually more than welcome or more than happy to put it in and I did get smoked salmon instead of Canadian bacon as well so just making little things with you already see on their menu and you note that they have most restaurants will be accommodating especially if you ask nicely and then I just think of getting like protein some veggies and then some healthy fats if you wanted to have something more indulging I suggest sharing things so you could share an appetizer or share a small side of whatever you wanted but to fill up most of your plate with the things that are gonna nourish you and make you feel good because if you’re eating completely horrible on vacation compared to what you do normally you might actually just feel crappy on vacation which I definitely don’t want to feel and I know a lot of you guys don’t want to I also picked up some really fun things in case you guys didn’t know I am Canadian so I’m gonna go to the States I do stock up on some favorites that are either hard to get here or it’s more expensive to order from those online stores so let’s get into it so I didn’t pick up a couple chocolates from Hugh kitchen this one is my favorite because there’s no sugar alcohols there’s no cane sugar emulsifiers so he left this in it’s the cleanest chocolate I’ve ever seen so I got crunchy mint and cashew butter if you are looking for these in Canada mature market does sell them so I will put a link to that in the description but hands down if you live in the states you need to get your hands on this keep them with you kitchen I also pick up more of their chocolate covered hunks of almond and sea salt they’re basically healthier chopped covered almonds which is one of my favorite things and again no palm oil sugar lapses in no shiny glaze guys if you ever see shiny too often covered almonds just stay clear another one if basically should brand dimension in general and that is simple mils I hadn’t tried their vanilla cupcake in cake mix but I thought I would pick it up to try it out with just this brand in general I have never found a product I don’t like they’re crackers are good they’re pizza crusts they’re bread they’re pancake mix anything simple meals makes is really good and it’s all really simple ingredients it’s just almond flour coconut sugar Aero coconut flour baking soda and sea salt that’s it of course I had to pick up some more of my ride-or-die granola and that is a purely Elizabeth this is one I haven’t seen before this is the grain free pumpkin spice and it has ashwagandha in it which I’m very excited about so I also picked up a couple bars the first one is the raw rev blow bar this is my favorite one for on keto because it has 14 grams of fiber which makes the net grams I think it’s either two or three net grams so this is easy just to have them a go and also this macadamia sea salt I try to really switch up my nuts you guys saw in my healthy snacks video you guys know I love macadamia nuts and they’re so good for you so I would highly recommend both of these bars pick up two boxes of chopped these are basically grass-fed beef snack sticks so basically a very very healthy Slim Jim I don’t think we have some gyms in Canada but from what people tell me it’s like a us thing but all the ingredients are very clean and it’s more of a salty snack their zero net carbs a hundred calories 6 grams of fat 9 grams of protein per stick and there’s 24 sticks per box and I got 2 because my fiancee really likes these as well also pick up some individual packets of brain octane this is great for keeping all the go when I run out of these packets I do use an old little ginger shot glass and I fill that with my brain octane and then I’ll put it in my clinic bag or in my purse to bring on the go with and lastly is this banza chickpea pasta I like chickpea pasta as opposed to normal pasta because it has a better macronutrient profile you guys knew y’all saw me use the shells in my healthy mac and cheese video which I will leave down below but yeah this has so much more fiber so much more protein so I hope you guys enjoy seeing what I eat while I’m away and a little bit of a healthy grocery haul some of my favorite brands .
