Tom Brady, the only man that could get me in the kitchen... He had me cooking every night for 2 months... Now, I am by no means a “cooking gal,” and Caleb found this out the hard way.
I was trying the TB12 cookbook... I am sorry TB, love you but that shit is TERRIBLE. I would spend hours slaving a way to eat like THE GOAT and was eating food that tasted like it was for A LITERAL GOAT… YES, IT TASTED LIKE GRASS. So, my cooking days came to an end quickly.
Now, I am proud to say I do not cook. I AM A GRAB AND GO CEO!
Here is a look at how I survived Division I sports without cooking:
Frozen Smoothie Mix + Spinach + Juice OR Water + Greek Yogurt + Banana + Peanut Butter ( Others prefer: Almond Butter or Protein Powder)
Granola + Nonfat Greek Yogurt + RAW Honey
Oatmeal + PB
Hard Boiled Egg + Spicy Salsa
Egg White Bites from Starbucks
Turkey Lettuce Wrap: Spinach/Lettuce, Mustard, Wrapped in Turkey (or Ham/Chicken)
Deli Meat ( Buffalo Chicken, Chipotle Chicken, Honey Ham, Turkey)
Veggie Sticks + RANCH — If you’re a college athlete, you can afford the Ranch Cals… Hustle at practice.
ONE YELLOW OR ORANGE PEPPER A DAY FOR VITAMIN A!
Nuts - Roasted or Wasabi Almonds
Laughing Cow - Light Swiss
* Rice Chips + Laughing Cow + Turkey Pepperoni = Great Snack.
Fruit: Watermelon, Mango, Pineapple, Raspberries, Blueberries, Apple + PB
Rotisserie Chicken + Spinach + Avocado + Famous Sauce + Salt & Pepper
Make this a salad or a sandwich - SO GOOD
Uncle Ben’s Microwave Rice
Frozen Broccoli + Green Beans — A lot of frozen Veggies
Cute Frozen Sweet potato
Dr. Praeger's Sweet Potato Dinosaurs or Kale & Broccoli - Don't forget Ketchup.
Anything from the Lunch Menu
- Jimmy Johns Lettuce Wraps
Dessert: THE HARD PART.
I have the biggest sweet tooth of all time. So, when it comes to eating healthy, I always plan for failure when I’m grocery shopping… A lot of people say "If you don't buy it you can't eat it"... Well, in a college town when insomnia cookies can just magically appear at your doorstep until till 3 am… If I don’t plan for my moments of weakness, I will fully indulge in every flavor cookie and ice cream they have available that day.
Okay, here is what you should eat instead:
A handful of Chocolate Chips... I get milk chocolate but if you want to be healthy about it - get dark chocolate.
Halo or Yasso ( my new favorite ). I allow myself 2 BIG spoonfuls as (I much as I can get on the spoon).
Dried Mango Or Fruit
2 Spoonfuls of Peanut Butter with Honey
A BIG spoonful of Cookie Butter — WARNING: this is a slippery slope
*I WILL KEEP ADDING TO THIS LIST AS IDEAS COME TO ME*
