SNAP Challenge – Day 2: Dinner

Dinner tonight was pretty much just a hodge-podge of whatever I felt like throwing in a pot. I decided to go with 3/4 cup kidney beans, 3/4 cup dry whole wheat pasta, 3/4 cup of the canned stewed tomatoes, 3/4 cup of frozen brocoli (added garlic powder). Pretty easy prep for this meal. Boiled the pasta forContinue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 2: Dinner”

SNAP Challenge: Day 2 – Snack & Lunch & Pre/Post Workout

My “snack” today was the other half of my banana, which I ate about 1 hour after breakfast on my way out the door. My lunch today was something pretty different, for myself at least. I had one cup of quinoa, 3/4 cup red kidney beans, 1/2 cup spinach (thawed) 1 tsp olive oil, a littleContinue reading “SNAP Challenge: Day 2 – Snack & Lunch & Pre/Post Workout”

SNAP Challenge – Day 1: Pre/Post Workout

I’ll keep this one pretty simple: Preworkout: My preworkout snack was a large navel orange. This provided me with about 20g of carbs before my workout. I had a pretty intense, one hour weight lifting workout today, but I wont get into that since the focus of this program is my diet. However, I doContinue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 1: Pre/Post Workout”

SNAP Challenge – Day 1 Snack & Lunch

Before I go any further, I need to state that even though today is Monday, I am treating it like a Sunday since I don’t have any class until tomorrow. A lot of what I do today will prepare me for the week ahead, and therefore will require more time than most days. Snack: MyContinue reading “SNAP Challenge – Day 1 Snack & Lunch”

SNAP Challenge – Day 1 Breakfast

Woke up this morning feeling good and ready to start this challenge. Just a quick note, this “new diet” will be a little different than what I’m used to.
