SNAP Challenge: Summary

First things first, I want to note that yes, I did not do a full 7 days of eating, but I can promise that I had plenty of food left at the end of day 6 to make it through one more day. The reason I did not complete the final day was because unfortunately IContinue reading “SNAP Challenge: Summary”

SNAP Challenge – Day 6: Dinner and Final

Unfortunately, I have come down with a wicked cold, possibly the flu. I woke up this morning with an even worse sore throat. Since this my last day, I will stick it out an finish it up. MY dinner last night was 2 tilapia filets, and 1 medium sweet potato. It was pretty basic prep. I justContinue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 6: Dinner and Final”

SNAP Challenge Day 5: Lunch and Dinner

On Friday, I ended up going back home for the weekend, but was stil able to eat according to my SNAP foods. Before hitting the road on Friday, I had 1 cup quinoa, and 1 cup red kidney beans. When I got home for dinner, we were actually having fish, brocoli and rice. Pretty standard meal forContinue reading “SNAP Challenge Day 5: Lunch and Dinner”

SNAP Challenge – Day 5: Breakfast

For BFast today I went with a little more creativity and made a 1 egg, 3 egg white omelet with 3/4 cup mixed veggies and 1/4 cup cottage cheese. 1/2 cup dry oats with 1/2 banana. The omelet was pretty simple to make, just sautéed up the veggies, set aside. Poured the egg and whites into theContinue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 5: Breakfast”

SNAP Challenge – Day 4: Dinner

Dinner tonight was pretty big since I lifted legs today. Traditionally this is the day that I eat almost everything and everything that I want. The legs obviously contain the largest muscles in the body and thus demanding the most nutrients for adequate recovery/growth. I pretty much just threw a bunch of stuff on aContinue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 4: Dinner”

SNAP Challenge: Day 4 – Breakfast and Lunch

SNAP Challenge – Day 3: Dinner and Final

For dinner tonight I went with the classic tilapia, 1 cup brocoli, 1 cup brown rice (I prepared 2 cups of dry rice earlier). I decided to pan-sear the fish this time with a little garlic and lemon-pepper seasoning. Turned out a little better than the microwaved stuff from Monday.   Dinner Stats: Calories: 351 Carbs:Continue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 3: Dinner and Final”

SNAP Challenge: Day 3 – Lunch

As stated before, my breakfast was huge and I wasnt even hungry until about 1pm today. My lunch today was pretty bad to be honest. 4 oz of canned tuna, 1/2 cup of quinoa, 1/2 cup cottage cheese and a handful of baby carrots. This was a very bland lunch but it worked. I wont evenContinue reading “SNAP Challenge: Day 3 – Lunch”
