A Day of Food
Here's an example of what Heather eats in a day:
Breakfast: "Once a week, I make a large batch of egg whites with chicken apple sausage, spinach, and tomato to have on hand for multiple meals."
Snack: protein shake made with two scoops Isopure Dutch Chocolate Whey Protein Powder with eight ounces of water
Lunch and Dinner: "I eat a lot of chicken and turkey. I put it in a slow cooker with low-sodium, organic chicken broth or with salsa; shred it; and have multiple meals to carry me through the week. I'll pair the lean proteins with quinoa or brown rice and a steamed vegetable like green beans, broccoli, or asparagus."
Snack: almonds and berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries), an occasional protein bar, or Greek yogurt. "Sometimes I will eat a snack-size portion of Justin's almond or peanut butter. It helps curb that sweet tooth."
If she's training for a powerlifting competition, she'll eat what's mentioned above, but more of it, dispelling the myth that eating less is better. Heather believes, "If you're eating things that are GOOD for your body and fuel for it, it is so important to ensure you're providing enough nourishment for your body to sustain what you're putting it through."
