What I Eat in A Day (Summer Edition)


I'm back with a very long overdue Wellness Wednesday post! Today I'm talking about what I've been eating every day during the summer. 

By the end of my second semester of sophomore year, I was snacking an unreal amount and generally eating pretty unhealthy. (Read: a few too many ice cream runs with my roomies!) So for the summer, I decided to start eating super clean to feel better and get in a healthier routine. I cut out most carbs (besides the occasional whole grain toast, quinoa and plain popcorn) and tried to subtract as much dairy from my diet as possible. My brother is allergic to dairy so we really don't have a ton in our house anyway! Besides my morning mochas, I pretty much avoid all dairy now (except ice cream and chocolate every once and a while, obvi).
So does this healthier diet really do anything? Well, I honestly feel a lot better - more energized, happy and ready to tackle my to-do list. I eat a toooon of fruits and veggies everyday and never feel too full, but rather satisfied. It's almost like I crave fruits when I want something sweet (which is pretty weird since I have a big sweet tooth!).


Now, here's pretty much what I eat every day:

Breakfast: 7:30 am
-One scrambled egg
-Onions
-A few baby tomatoes or a little pico de gallo
-Half of an avocado

Snack: 11:00 am
-Grapes or raspberries (at my cubicle!)

Lunch: 12:30 pm
-Mixed greens
-Tilapia, lemon chicken or flank steak
-Carrots and hummus

Snack: 3:00 pm
-Raw almonds (I just switched over from salted/roasted and kind of like raw better!)

Dinner: 7:00 pm
(Depends on the day)
-Salmon
-Veggies (green beans or brussel sprouts are my fave)
-Sometimes quinoa if I feel like it 

Snack: 9:00 pm
-Fruit or Trader Joe's organic popcorn

I've been eating a little more ice cream than usual but, hey, gotta treat yourself!

What do you eat in a typical day? I'm curious to hear new ideas!

  1. I too have recently cut out a lot of carbs and sugar from my diet and it's amazing how quickly you start to feel better, more energetic, and just generally less lazy and sluggish! I'm hoping to continue this trend through the fall and winter as well! P.S. I would love to see more snack suggestions with low carb/low sugar items as I'm always trying to diversify what I'm eating!

  3. Over the course of the next three years, four of five mining and metals companies expect to increase their spending on digital technologies, with more than one quarter (28 percent) planning significant investments and almost half (46 percent) citing digital as the biggest contributor to innovation, per new research from global management consulting firm Accenture. Richard Verkley, CEO of the cutting-edge mining and equipment companies Eco Metal Recovery UK and Farpoint Metals & Mining, recently discussed the technological advances that are flooding the industry.

  6. Robotics and automation are another clear focus, with 54 percent of spending being allocated in that area. Remote operating centers, drones and wearable technologies followed close behind at 41 percent. Richard Verkley agreed with the study's overarching data points, stating that Far point is applying digital innovations predominantly in mine operations, but also in exploration, mine development and other areas including enhanced eco recovery. "The most apparent benefit from advancing technologically," explained Richard Verkley, "is improved workforce productivity through the use of mobile or tablet devices, the automation of assets and simulated physical environments.

  9. When was the last time you took time to notice the traffic signals? Though people understand that traffic lights are an important device which is needed to signal the passengers and drivers for a safe transport, we seem to undermine its design. This color-coded system is universally the same. Hence the traffic light in India is the same as the traffic light elsewhere. It has three colors: red, green and yellow. But there are color blind people who can't differentiate between red and green! This is the reason why it is agreed to have a red color with an orange hue. Green too has a combination that contains blue hue. It is essential to know the traffic light images with names. Traffic light pictures are displayed in every RTO offices.
