Save Calories, Save Time

Taking the time to pack your lunch on the weekend is a huge calorie and time saver. I make hummus and store it in individual 1/4 cup containers and pair it with 1/2 cup containers filled with red bell peppers and carrots. Check out my hummus recipe on this blog.

I love snacking throughout the day to keep my blood sugar levels stable.  My eating plan looks like this:

5:00 1 banana

5 mi run

6:30 protein waffle or steel cut oats and 1/4 cup blueberries or peaches

9:00 fruit leather

10:30 1/2 whole wheat pita with peanut butter and honey

11:45 lunch: small bunch of grapes, veggies and hummus, 1/2 chicken and arugula pesto pita

2:00 1/2 odwalla protein bar

3:30 other 1/2 of odwalla protein bar

4:45 dinner spaghetti with lean deer meat (from my hunter husband), mixed baby herb salad with Zoe’s Kitchen greek dressing

7:00 snack in the pantry

8:00 no more eating

Fruit Leather

Odwalla Protein Bars



Tea Room Chicken Salad

This is the ultimate Tea Room Chicken Salad recipe. It is from the “The Pastry Queen” by Rebecca Rather in Fredericksburg; follow her blog Rather Sweet.

Changes: I do not make homemade mayo; I just buy Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and add enough until it is dispersed throughout the salad.
