It's still tax season, of course, so basically all my meals are eaten at my desk. Things are super busy, my kitchen is a mess, and I feel accomplished if I manage to actually pack anything for meals instead of eating out. But nonetheless, eating more produce and protein is gradually becoming closer to second nature.
Breakfast: Smoothie with spinach, banana, berries, flax seed, peanut butter, water. Hi-Ball energy drink.
Protein grams: 10

Snack: Vegetable chips - these are actually pretty processed - it's not pieces of any vegetables, but flours (potato, spinach, tomato), put back into chip form. But not excessively unhealthy for a processed food.

Protein grams: 7

Dinner: Scrambled eggs with spinach and grape tomatoes. Doughnut (ok, x2) - though I've certainly never been one to turn down a doughnut, they weren't something I often bought for myself, until my marathon training. Then it seemed like the perfect treat for a long run day, and I've been craving them ever since. But hey, they have 4 grams of protein each!
