Coquette Couture shop owner, Kayleen explains to us, "Staying in shape and eating healthy is always one of my top priorities week-to-week." She's a driven a gal with goals always on her mind. Which is why we sat down to visit about what a typical 3 day healthy diet looks like for her. "I'm not always perfect and I allow myself to cheat sometimes, but I find that's an important piece of the puzzle to maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle." Along with keeping to a strict gym habit with personal trainer, Travis Hackett of Complete Fitness, incorporating easy and healthy meals is key. Here's what she shared with us. -
From Kayleen - So most Sunday's or Monday's I prepare my food for the week. Then I'll just rotate the meals. This extra prep early week helps keep me on track and make healthy food choices. Here's my diary:
2 eggs, scrambled
half an avocado and spread on ezekiel bread (you could toast it, but I don't like toast).
2 links of turkey sausage (I cook a batch on Sunday's so they are ready to just reheat).Lunch
Medium apple (honey crisp are my favorite!). I buy them organic because I hate the wax on regular ones.
Spoon full of Natural Peanut butter (check the back to make sure it's just peanuts and oil). You can make your own peanut butter at the Co-op!Dinner
Homemade chilli. Lots of protein and I know what's in it. Sometimes I allow myself a few saltine crackers.Snack
Greek yogurt. I get the Triple Zero Oiko. Check and make sure the yogurt you are getting has more protein than sugar.
Unsalted roasted almonds. Only six of them. It seems annoying to say that, but that is really all you should eat.Supper
I cook chicken breasts at the beginning of the week so there aren't excuses. I chopped up a chicken breast with 1 cup of Uncle Ben's brown and wild rice along with stir fry veggies.
Woke up late so I went with a handy dandy smoothie.
I love Advocare's meal replacement in chocolate mocha, throw that in a blender with ice and 1/4 of water and a cup of frozen strawberries. Chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast.YUMSnack
Yogurt. I did strawberry Triple Zero.Lunch
Taco Lettuce Wrap! I buy the large romaine leaf. Add taco meat which I made at the beginning of the week, and a little shredded cheese. I ate 2 of these babies! So delicious and the wraps cancel out the carbs so you can enjoy more than 1.
Cucumber slices and a small "tuna on the go" cup.Dinner
I was really craving a turkey sandwich! Since i didn't have tortillas for lunch, I did 2 slices of whole grain bread, little mayo, lettuce, roma tomato slices, and avocado slices.
1 Cup of steel cut oatmeal. I added a few frozen blueberries and blackberries.Lunch
Deli turkey (6 slices) wrapped around lettuce and avocado. Simple, but good.Dinner
Homemade chili, again. NOMZZZZ!Snack
1 peach and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. The cottage cheese has great protein.Supper
The chicken breasts I made at the beginning of the week...I chopped them up and threw one in a tortilla with a little cheese, avocado, tomato, and lettuce. Made myself a delicious little wrap with hummus and sliced peppers on the side.
There you have it folks! Sticking to a healthy diet and fitness routine keeps me going all week!
