    Breakfast Ideas | Keeping Full

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it’s the first meal of the day. Of course! I’ve always been on #teambreakfast and as I was growing up I never understood my friends who didn’t eat breakfast before school. How can you survive until lunch on an empty stomach? As I’ve started understanding flexible dieting and changing up my fitness routine, I like to be careful with what I have for breakfast. I like it to have good protein macros and usually stay lower in carbs, but I also want to stay full throughout the morning. I eat breakfast around 6:45am during the work week so having a…

    Flat Bread Pizza

    I love pizza. I think that’s a fairly normal! Sadly, pizza doesn’t really fit my macros the best so I usually save it for a cheat meals I wanted to come up with a pizza recipe that was a bit more macro friendly that I could eat without having to work in a cheat meal.

I’m not doing a bulk by any means, but staying closer to maintenance than a cut. I actually recalculate the my macros using a new formula, so I’m…

    Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

    This week was not one my best in terms of sticking to macros or meal plans because I didn’t really plan anything in advance. I got back from my LA vacation late Sunday evening so there was no time for meal prepping. I had made a few extra salmon meals the week before leaving, but that wasn’t quite enough for the whole week. My prepped meals are usually for lunches so I was at a loss for what to make for dinner. Luckily I had some frozen shrimp that I picked up a few weeks ago and some tortillas in the fridge – shrimp tacos it was! I love tacos.…

    A Quick Fitness Update | How I’m Doing

    About six weeks ago I shared my spring workout plan and a nutrition plan I’d be following. This year I wanted to change my cut routine and really dedicate myself to it in order to meet my fitness goals. I started my cut earlier than originally planned because I wanted to be ready in time for my trip to LA. As you’re reading this, I’m actually in LA! But I wanted to post an update on how things went the first six weeks and what I’ll be changing for the final half. This year was the first time I tried flexible dieting, or if it fits my macros which it’s also referred…
