What I Eat In A Week

Posted by Amina AlTai on

Ever wondered what a health coach or nutritional professional eats in a week?  It might surprise you!  At BHH, we firmly believe that we are all bio-individuals.  That means that all of our bodies at 100% unique and there is no one-size-fits-all wellness solution.  When it comes to my meals and meal planning, I eat low-glycemic/carb, high-protein and for gut health, with the occasional vegan treat here and there.  Because #human.

Full disclosure, I'm 5'5 and 124 pounds and 20% body fat. I have hypothyroidism which means I have to work a little harder to manage my weight and celiac disease which means gluten-free everything.  So, my weekly meal plan might not work for you but it gives you an idea what a healthy meal schedule could look like.  I also allow myself a weekly cheat meal.  The reason I encourage cheat meals versus cheat days is that it doesn't create feeling of abundance and then lack.  One cheat meal a week allows you to live healthfully and make good choices most days and look forward to a special treat versus one day of complete gluttony.  

The below is a snapshot of my week.

This would be an example of a week that I'm home and can cook a bit more.  If I'm traveling, I would still adhere to my nutritional guidelines but likely have to eat off a menu.  It's all about making good choices for where you are and how you feel.  

How do your meals measure up?  Think you're eating healthy?  We'd love to hear.
