I have been on a huge fruit kick lately. Today I brought with me cherries, strawberries, and cantaloupe. At home I have nectarines, pineapple and peaches.

I also have organic cereal I munch on.


My other husband's name is Gym.

I work 10 hr shifts and the only meal I have at home is breakfast. I eat every 3 hours.

I pack, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, a steamer bag with fish or chicken and 2 or 3 different veggi's.. I like asparagus, broccoli and cauliflower together.

I usually take a mango, apple, walnuts, chia seed.

Sometimes i take yogurt and if I do i include 1/4c sliced organic almonds and 1/4c of organic Optimum flax cereal to add to the yogurt.

If it is hot i take my mini blender and tons of fruit, soy milk, protein powder& flax seed and make smoothies. I keep a container of Matcha (green tea powder) in my cooler all the time too in case I want to add it to my water or smoothies.

I have olive oil and flax oil in the fridge at work. I always have Wasa 7 grain crackers in the cupboard along with almond butter thats mixed with honey and chia seed there too.

I eat a lot of fruit and I am lucky that my boss keeps lots of it on hand for us so I don't have to pack a whole lot but I like to have frozen fruit for my smoothies.

I have started back here in Feb 2012 after putting some weight back on. I lost 114lbs here previously and I now know I need this community and the food tracker to keep me in check.

Oh! I almost forgot!

Please tell me about that Natural Organic Popcorn... DH and I have an air popper now, and we have bought white popping corn - which should at least be non-GMO, but I've never seen anything natual and/or organic. Do tell!

(I find the air popped white corn to be a little "chewy".)

I'm currently unemployed and staying mostly at home. So I don't bring a cooler with me, except DH and I always make sure we have our distilled water with us whenever we go out.

I'm surprised no one responded to your post - maybe eveyone felt embarrassed that you are doing so well and we're all a bunch of slackers!
Seriously - thanks for the great ideas for when I actually DO need to bring a cooler. You're smart to have it even for "just in case."

I thought it would be a good chance to talk about what food we carry with us. What makes a good and bad nutrition day and what our struggles are.

I'll start...

Ok, first off. I work only part time, full time stay at home mamma. So usually I don't need a cooler. But I pack one most days anyways. My son and I spend tons of time outdoors and on the go.

I eat breakie at home.

2-3 Egg whites and 1 egg
Veggies: tomatoes, cilantro, onions, mushrooms etc.
1 pc. Ezekiel bread or red potato (100 grams)
1/2 oz. goat cheese
Coffee, water, supplements

My cooler has;
4-5 oz Chicken or Tuna
Cut veggies, or salad
Black beans
whole wheat pita
apple, orange, banana
tons of water
cottage cheese

Steak, Fish or Shrimp
Veggies (x 2 or more)
Healthy Carb (red or sweet potato)

Snack; (at night only 2-3 times a week)
Natural Organic Popcorn
Garlic or Red Hot

This spring I have been great with carrying food. If I forget or am too busy to pack I eat out and make good choices. I am not falling into patterns of eating junk like before. CLEAN EATING is the way to go.

I noticed something today. I had lunch (not packed bought) and I ordered a chicken wrap w/ veggies on a whole wheat pita w/ a salad. I was going to just eat half the wrap. It SUCKED. It was horrible. I only ate the chicken and some salad and left the rest. NOT enough calories for someone still nursing a 21 month old child. I got busy in the afternoon and did not eat before the gym. I had NO energy. The weights seemed heavier my mood was low. YUCK.

Had I planned out my meal today I would have kicked BUTT at this workout.

Food as fuel. WOW. Eye opening :)
