Whats In A Trainers Lunch Cooler?

Since I am not able to post my workout I thought I would share with you what my lunch cooler looks like.

Here is a normal lunch, however it does vary from time to time. My meals are 4, one at 8am, 10am, 1pm and last snack at 3pm. (Dinner at 5.30pm last Casein snack at 7pm)

This meal would be:
1. 1 scoop whey, 1/2 pb and honey sandwich
2. oats, cinnamon, banana, 1 tbs pb
3. 1/2 pb and honey sandwich, 1 cup yogurt w/blueberries
4. cottage cheese, peaches and nuts

Cals =1,410 carbs =150 fat =50 protein =103

As most of you know, I normally workout 45 minutes in the morning and a walk at lunch.

Enjoy the picture blog.........

My fridge - Coffee, water and eggs are staples, plus some chicken breast I get Purdue hormone free all individually wrapped (and buy when on sale). Usually $11 a box get on sale for $9 and well worth the money over other boneless breasts. If you have not tried them, you will get hooked. Cooked on my Foreman grill there is never any fat drainage, they are that lean and clean.

Packing my lunch

Yogurt and blueberries (also I just found this bottle of sugar free vanilla nut flavoring for coffees that I am going to try in Greek yogurt instead of a sugar substitute since its so tart)

Cottage cheese and peaches with sunflower seeds, its got that sweet salty taste and sometimes I use peanuts or sesame seeds.

PB and honey - I usually have Smart Balance which has flax seed but this was on sale.

My day time meal, including 1 scoop whey (vanilla) in the morning and 1 scoop casein (Chocolate) in the evening (the only thing missing is my dinner)

My lunch packed - all my containers are 1 cup servings in this lunch, I have 1 cup and 1/2 cup containers that I use to keep my portions controlled.

1 water, 1 banana, oats, yogurt, cottage cheese, peaches and blueberries, pb and honey sandwich

My new smoothie maker, I can't wait to get back to them.

Like most people I try to stay on a food budget, so I don't buy organic and I won't upgrade my milk to soy or almond unless I can afford to each week. I will try to get a picture of my pantry and fridge next time.

Ok, I just changed the look of my blog and if anyone has an opinion let me know. Now that they have all these new templates I spent an hour trying to decide. Btw, I do NOT get any compensation on any of my product reviews I just like to share information that works for me.

Hoping to walk again today, trying to make things happen during recovery.
Weight today = 119



  1. okay its only my opinion...but blog looks very *cool* its lost the warmth I enjoyed...but please only my opinion and only said something cause you asked...its your blog so it must be what YOU like!!

    I see you also have sandwich with peanut butter ( natural ) and honey...I've started as well since giving up processed meats.

    BTW, the Reebok flip flops took a while to get used to the feeling was weird,but now loving them...I would like to get the trainers for Autumn as they have those as well as flip flops..
    Not trainers to train in, but to wear around the house, to the shops...

  2. Loved your new blog T, like all the pics of your yummy food..Never tried pb and honey, going to give it a go.

  3. LOVED the post chica! YOU are so gosh darn organized even with a boo boo! :) Hope you are feeling better each day girl! Here for you! XOXO

  4. Marcelle - Thanks for the input I felt that way too but it does look more organized and if I get some sponsors for my foundation that is what matters most to me.
    I wondered about those flip flops, so keep me posted on the others too. I imagine that they are better for your feet?
