Mel’s Clean Eating Meals look a little different this week! Here is what I ate throughout the day on Memorial Day. We got home from vacation in Illinois and I wanted to rest, so no BBQs or get-togethers.
I did a lot more snacking and less actual meals. Since I was gone both Saturday & Sunday I didn’t meal prep until Monday. Here is pretty much what a typical Sunday looks like for me.

7:15am – Meal #1:
I actually slept in until 6:30am or so and waited a little bit to eat breakfast. I read for a while and drank a liter of water while I was at it.
Once I was finally hungry I took a peach Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt cup and topped it with brown rice cereal, almond butter and a mini Cashew Cookie Larabar. The mini versions are 100 calories and perfect to keep in your purse or desk.
9:45am – Snack #1:
I went to the grocery store around 9:00am and went to the gym afterwards. Once I got done shopping I had a banana for some quick carbs for my workout.
11:30am – Meal #2:
After my workout I had another breakfast basically! I can eat breakfast anytime. I had 2 eggs + 4 egg whites scrambled and topped with 1/2Tbsp shredded cheese. On one slice of Dave’s Killer Bread I added 1/4 mashed avocado and then added the eggs on top. It was basically an open-faced version of the 5-Minute 4-Ingredient Breakfast Sandwich. Easy, delicious and full of protein!
After my second “breakfast” I had two pitted dates. I love dates! They are sweet, so it works for dessert after a meal.
12:45pm – Snack #2:
I decided to cut up the pineapple that I bought and I ended up snacking on a few pieces.
3:30pm – Meal #3:
For a mid-afternoon snack I had 1% cottage cheese drizzled with agave. I added chopped pineapple and some Purely Elizabeth Blueberry Hemp granola for a little extra flavor.
4:45pm – Snack #3:
I went on a 45-minute walk in the afternoon and I started getting hungry again before dinner. To easy that hunger I had one brown rice cake topped with peanut butter and strawberry jelly. If you haven’t tried this combo then please do! I love it.
7:00pm – Meal #4:
Donny wanted to make dinner and he’d decided earlier in the day to try some harissa chicken. Harissa is a spice used a lot in Indian food. He made a marinade using garlic, ginger, harissa, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt and a few other items. He marinated some boneless, skinless chicken thighs for a few hours and grilled them on skewers. They were really good! We had them with some raw veggies and hummus, plus some brown rice. It was a really good dinner!
7:45pm – Snack #4:
After dinner I had some Chicago-style popcorn. Aka they mix caramel popcorn with cheddar popcorn. We bought some on our trip so Donny & I both had a bowl of it. Random combo, but pretty good!
