What I Ate Today: Quick & Easy Healthy Meals 7/11/14



hey everyone said today's video is going to be a little bit different from what I typically do but I did tell you guys recently that i do want to start doing more health and fitness videos i already have a few up that i've already done so today is going to be what i ate in a day so i'm basically going to take you along with me as I make my meals for breakfast lunch and dinner I'll probably do a separate one on snacks and like my favorite healthy snack so I like to eat my diet is not a hundred percent healthy like of course there's still some things that I could change if I really wanted to lose weight but i like to eat pretty normal but still make healthy choices so eating healthier eating a lot of fresh stuff which i talked all about that in my healthy eating tips video so i have a whole video on tips on how to eat healthy and some other things that go along with that so all the meals that i'm going to be making are things that you can do super quick and they're really easy to do if i can make them you guys can make them too because i'm not a very good cook if you're not into these type of videos and you only prefer to see my makeup and fashion videos check back on wednesday because i am going to have a makeup tutorial up showing you how to get this book that i'm wearing right now I just filmed it before I filmed this video so let's go ahead and get started so I first start out my day with drinking a glass of my fit t this is the 14-day detox I'm almost finished with it I really like this tea because it gives me a boost of energy before my workout and it really just helps flush out your system it's really great for detoxing it just is a great pick me up in the morning it really makes me feel good it makes me feel a lot lighter too not so heavy when I eat things and it helps my metabolism throughout the day so I just put one teaspoon into a t-ball I like using coffee filters around it because the tea always seems to seep out and then I'm just going to let that steep for a few minutes and i'm going to have a banana before my workout I like eating something light and not too heavy before my workout just to really give me that kick start of energy but not too much to where I feel too full to work out this tea also tastes amazing it's really good green tea and you can even add lemon or honey if you want to but I just prefer a plane and then I just have some water in my Brita water bottle that I'm always mentioning that I love because it's filtered so I can take it with me throughout the day I usually drink about a whole bottle throughout my workout and then I probably have about four or five of these total throughout the day so after our workout I like to eat my actual breakfast and this morning I made scrambled eggs with some veggies in there so I'm first pouring some oil into a pan and I'm using olive oil but you could use any oil that you like just prefer olive so to make my breakfast healthier I like using only egg whites because the egg white is actually what is healthier in the egg the yolk is not so healthy it has more cholesterol in it but for flavor I like to keep one egg yolk and then I remove the other two so I eat three in total and only one of them is a full egg with the yolk but the second one I kind of messed up and got some regular yolk in there but as you can see you just mix it back and forth until all the clear part falls out and then I'm just adding a little splash of organic milk everything that I use is pretty much organic and this is two percent milk and then I'm just adding a little bit of cheddar cheese you could totally skip the cheese to be healthier and then I'm adding in a little bit of an onion and the onion really just works to add some more flavor to it and then I'm adding in some slices of cherry tomatoes and then I'm just whisking that all together and pouring it into my pan and now I'm just adding in a ton of spinach I love adding spinach or kale to things because it's a great way for me to get some greens in and it doesn't really change the flavor much I don't really even taste it i just love adding it into almost anything that i make especially things where i'm doing like a mixture i really love adding spinach or kale and this exact mixture is actually good for an omelette that's what i originally used to make it for but you can also do it scrambled like i'm doing and then for some more flavor i'm just adding in some italian seasoning some crushed red pepper and then regular black pepper so this is what it looks like when it is finally done this is super quick and easy to make and it really keeps me full until lunchtime but now for lunch time one of my favorite meals of the day I'm going to be making a turkey veggie wrap with some fruit on the side Steph are starting out with just a regular tortilla wrap I like using wraps because it's a little bit different than a boring old sandwich all the time and it also has way less carbs and sometimes are also used these pocket bins there are only 100 calories in there multigrain they're really good too and it kind of gives you that feeling that you're still eating bread so I'm fresh is going to layer on some turkey I only use two pieces and you want to make sure that your lunch me is organic so doesn't have any preservatives or anything crazy no nitrates or anything now i'm just laying on a bunch of lettuce that's actually from a salad mix and then i'm just adding some cucumber slices and then i'm just adding two slices of tomato and then I'm adding some at feta cheese you could get the reduced fat kind i get that kind of sometimes that it's still pretty good and then i'm just adding on some black olives for some extra flavor and then i'm just finishing it off with some regular black pepper i also skipped the mayonnaise and the mustard i didn't put anything because when i use a wrap i don't feel like i really need it i also like just stuffing it with veggies and using only a little bit of meat and cheese that way it mainly veggies but you still get a little bit of flavor and it really it makes it more filling with having that turkey in there too for some protein so i just rolled it up and put a toothpick in it and then I'm going to slice up a peach to eat the fruit that I eat really fairies I love fruit I eat it all day long it's pretty much what I snap on the majority of the day so I just cut up some of that and it goes great as kind of like a sweet side to where you feel like you're getting a dessert now for dinner I'm going to be making one of my favorite easy and super quick dishes to make I'm just adding a little bit of olive oil to an iron skillet I love making salmon in an iron skillet because I think it just makes it taste better so I'm using wild-caught pink salmon I just get this in a big bag from kroger it's nice it's frozen sent off to worry about it going bad and the fridge so I just thought out when I know I'm going to be eating it that night and I just put it in the pan and I like his they're individually wrapped too so I can make just one for me when I'm trying to just make a quick meal so I'm just adding a little bit of lemon juice to it I love adding lemon to everything and just add the whole lot of flavor and then I'm just adding some paprika and then some Creole seasoning and then some parsley and some regular black pepper and I'm just going to kind of cook that on low to medium high i like to get mine kind of a little bit crispy on the outside and then i just break it up with my spatula because i'm going to be mixing in some rice and some spinach and kale as well so the brown rice that I like to get is actually the kroger brand I prefer this to all the other brands I think it tastes better it's just whole grain brown rice and it's the 90-second microwavable thing it's super easy it comes with a lot in here it's enough for two people or even more and you just pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds and it's already done so then after that has cooked in the microwave I'm just going to be adding it to my pan and mixing it all up and I like mixing brown rice with stuff because it is a little bit plain I still think it has a good flavor but I just like mixing it same with the salmon i'm not a huge fish person this is the only fish that I like and I definitely like it mixed with stuff instead of just eating it plain then I'm just adding in some kale and a little bit more oil because it started to get dry and then I'm adding in some spinach I love sneaking Kalyan whenever I can because it is super healthy for you it's definitely one of those super foods and I can't even really taste it when I mix it in with spinach this finish definitely tastes better though so i like to use both you could do this dish with pretty much anything you could use chicken if you don't like fish just anything that's really lean and holly had to say hi because she's of course begging like always when I'm cooking but super easy and quick to make and it's really healthy because you do have the greens in there the brown rice is not as fattening or doesn't have as much carbs as the regular rice and then this salmon is good protein it's very lean I prefer lean meats like salmon and chicken that is everything that I ate today I hope you guys enjoyed this style of video I know it's something a little bit different than what I typically do I'm going to try to list everything that I made all my blog if you guys want to refer back to that just so you can take it with you or you could pin it on pinterest

  1. As other have said, don't waste the egg yolk. The yolk is where Vitamin D and most of the nutrients are at. I'd rather not eat eggs than to throw the yolks away. If you're afraid of cholesterol then don't eat eggs. That milk and cheese is worse because they have more unhealthy saturated fats. I guarantee you'll lose a lot of weight by not eating eggs and dairy for a while. But good job on eating fish.

  2. Watching this while eating a kfc :/

  3. You are fine

  4. You don't put on salt on your food? Crazy hehe

  5. she could put the salmon and rice in a wrap also its really good

  6. I love eating high protein breakfasts in the morning

  7. Love this vid and would love to see more of these!! 😄👍 tfs

  8. White rice and brown rice have the same amount of carbs. The reason brown rice is healthier is because it's not refined like white rice is.

  9. Great meals, thanks for sharing your videos !

  10. You need to eat more..

  14. EEG yolk has all the nutrients in it. At least use 2 yolks in your omelet.

  15. I love your hair! It's beautiful! Is it naturally curly? Mine is and I wish it looked like yours! If you don't mind me asking, what do you do to your hair? I'd really like to know. 🙂

  16. Lol when she broke the salmon up I thought she got mad for a second😂😂

  17. The yolk is actually healthy for you, The real threat to high cholesterol is saturated and trans fats, not dietary cholesterol.

I know you're busy, but it would be great if you could make a "What I Ate Today" video once a week, maybe once every couple of weeks… I lack any imagination when it comes to cooking. Give me a recipe and I'll use the same ingredients over and over because I just won't know how to change it up.
