Food, food, food!

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been following a strict exercise routine to prepare my body for the Launch Showcase in Chicago next month. That’s only half the battle though. The food and drinks I consume every day are equally important. I’ve been vegetarian since high school and I weaned myself off of dairy, junk food and soda around the same time but my current challenge has been cutting out sodium and making sure to eat produce every day, especially since I don’t have the budget to buy everything organic, but I’ve been reducing sodium by rinsing and draining the juice out of all canned food. The following is one of my typical daily meal plans; which includes a two-part breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon snack.

All food items shown were purchased from Aldi or Target.

Breakfast: Part One:

-One glass of green tea, drank with biotin and women’s daily multivitamin supplements

-One serving of a fruit smoothie: Approximately 1/4 of the bottle shown

-One large banana

-One serving of a different fruit, usually berries or an orange
