Happy Sunday loves! It’s been fashion overload here lately 😉 so thought i’d switch it up a bit a do a Honeybee Health post with some random shots from last week.
I posted this dinner I made on my instagram and several of you asked how I prepared it. Honestly it was crazy easy and turned out SO yummy! My husband actually hates fish (unless its breaded) and he ate the whole thing! As far as meat, poultry and fish goes I tend to spend more money on better quailty items. This is wild caught Chilean Sea Bass and it can be a little more pricey but in my opinion you can really taste the difference! I marinated them with a little olive oil, crushed garlic and sea salt then put them in a glass dish and cooked for 15 mins at 450 (until the middle is cooked through). I served them with simple sides of white rice and black beans. Yes I said white rice 😉 brown rice is a better option but from time to time we have white rice (especially because the hubby isn’t a fan of brown). I’ve made homemade mango salsa before but cheated with this one and picked up a pre-made one from Whole Foods. It’s so much faster and REALLY good!
Picked up some healthy sides at Whole Foods. I love their Garlice brown rice and roasted peppers!
Do you guys remember Clearly Canadian drinks from back in the day?! This one is basically the healthier version. Just a little something I pick up when I don’t want to drink water 😉
Out to Italian at our favorite spot (Quattro in South Coast Plaza for my local ladies) I go with the salmon with tomatoes and ask for steamed spinach as my side. I save my carbs for the vino and the few breadsticks I had before our meal.
Snackin’ at the beach! There’s nothing like being in a bikini to keep your eating on track 😉 This salad from Active Culture in Laguna is so filling and yummy!
Typical dinner portion sizes at home. Half my plate is salad with lean protein and a smaller portion of carbs. I try to keep my carb portions smaller at dinner because I know i’ll always have some sort of sweet treat after dinner. I try to keep it around 200 calories and it’s usually a small cup of cereal or a small portion of cookies and skim milk.
Dominating at the best burger place in town..Umami Burger! Now this is more of a cheat night spot but I still tried to keep it as healthy as I could. The hubs and babe started with fries while I started with “the boring salad” (yes that’s really what it’s called) I ordered the Greenbird burger which is a turkey burger but it does have an amazing (non healthy) spread and some dressing on it which is so good!
A latte and small piece of dark chocolate usually satisfy my afternoon sweets craving!
Another shot I posted on my instagram last week of my weekly food prep. Food prepping doesn’t have to be complicated it’s just about cutting and cooking up healthy items to have ready to go in your fridge for the week. You’ll be much more likely to have healthy meals/snacks if they are prepped and ready to go! I stock up on all our families favorite fruits and veggies (switching it up each week so we don’t get burnt out on the same items) and just wash, cut and portion them out. I will also make a big batch of whole grain rice and or quinoa to have on hand as well.
My favorite Hummus from Whole Foods and some of our veggies prepped from last week. I make these little bags more for husband so he can take them to work.
Switching it up at True Foods last weekend I had the shaved turkey sandwich. It is so good but the portion is rather large so I had half with the kale salad and saved the other half for the next day.
and every now and then you have to get down with the family 😉 I try to limit the donuts, sprinkles cupcakes and butter cake to once a month but they’re totally worth it! (Sunglasses by SUPER)
Hope this was helpful of you ladies! I also have been posting snap shots of my workouts on my Twitter account if you want to follow along there! You can find me under Andee Layne. Have a great rest of the weekend loves!!
