CrossFit Peabody: Coach Jenn’s Daily Nutrition
“I don’t have time to meal prep”
“I’m not a good cook”
“I don’t know what to eat”
“Healthy food is expensive”
“Healthy food is yucky”
I’ve heard all the excuses.
Yes, we all have busy days, but making dinner doesn’t have to be a 3 hour long process.
As a single mom with a full time job, I know that time is precious.
My daughter and I eat (mostly) very healthy and balanced each day.
I take an extra minute to weigh and measure all of my food so I know how much I’m taking in. (Though it’s really sad to see how much a “real” serving of peanut butter is.)
Below is a day in my life through my meals and how long it took me to prepare each one.
140 grams of frozen tropical fruit
33g of Strawberry UMP (Protein we carry at CrossFit Peabody)
32g of 365 Creamy All Natural Peanut Butter
Prep time-Less than 5 minute
Morning Snack & pre-workout
154g Granny Smith Apple
Perfect Bar (Literally the best protein bar ever – we carry at CrossFit Peabody)
50g Warrior Blend chocolate protein
12g powdered peanut butter
56g powdered carbohydrates
Shaken together in a Blender Bottle
2 Turmeric capsules-aids in inflammation
Prep Time-2 minutes
Dr. Praeger’s Quinoa & Veggie Burger
22g Finlandia Muenster cheese
133g Sweet Potato Salad
Prep Time-10 minutes
4oz baked pork chop
⅛ cup panko breading
144g Birdseye Steamfresh Wild Rice and veggies (This is literally $1 a bag and goes in the microwave for 4:00)
Prep Time-35 minutes (But now I have leftovers for a few days!)
This is just one example of a very typical day. Quick, easy and effective.
Stay tuned this week for a Day in the life of each of our coaches!
