what I eat in a week {july 31 - august 4}

You guys often ask me what I actually eat in a day or week. And, in truth, what I eat totally varies depending on my schedule + life + craziness. Sometimes I eat three square meals, and sometimes I have 6 mini meals. For myself, but also for you, I take random weeks to share what I eat when. This is one of those weeks! 

This post is updated daily. Let me know what you think below!

8 a.m. | Okay, I am very hungover. I went to the Rammy's last night and I'm pretty sure I sampled every drink that they were offering. My head is  p o u n d i n g  and I need to get ready for work. I chug some coffee and get ready. By the time I'm in the office, I'm already googling hangover cures. 

10:10 a.m. | My 10 a.m. meeting is cut super short (thank goodness) and I drag myself into the office's kitchen where there are breakfast potatoes. Greasy, carb-y and — IMHO — the perfect hangover cure. I add a dollop of hot sauce + make myself a big cup of coffee (p.s. this is the creamer I use), then I slowly eat while working on some data entry. I'm hoping I start feeling better. 

1:30 p.m. | I've been totes slumped in my chair all day trying to be productive and useful. I walk over to the kitchen to grab my lunch out of the fridge. It's the leftovers of a sweetgreen salad (think: beets, shredded kale, rice, corn, spinach, sprouts) topped with beyond meat chicken strips. I add a big 'ol spoonful of Hope avocado hummus + hot sauce. I add hummus + hot sauce to literally everything I eat, so no surprise here. It's delicious and super curative considering I can still feel the alcohol from last night. 

3:30 p.m. | I'm feeling  a l i v e  again. I pull out a little bag of champagne gummy bears to enjoy. My snack drawer is majorly running low and I browse ThriveMarket + Amazon for some new items. My fave picks? This vegan jerky, skinny pop + chocolate espresso beans. I'm always looking for "low-mess" snacks that are easy to eat + have a low crunch factor. My team is always very quiet during the day. 

5 p.m. | I walk home and Maxi helps me collect a TON of packages from the front. As we get back into the apartment, we discuss what to do for dinner. We need to drop by my parents house ands say goodbye to my Lita and we want to get part of the way there before eating. We settle for True Food Kitchen (grandmother in Spanish is abuelita, but when I was a kid all I could say was "lita" and it stuck).

6:40 p.m. | We sit at the outdoor bar at True Food and talk with the bartenders + see my friend Amanda (hey girl). Maxi orders the "Hangover Rx" juice and I stick with water – still feeling rough. He orders the turkey burger with sweet potato hash (obvs I steal some) + kale caesar salad. I go with the seasonal salad (no cheese, add tofu) and we get a big cup of hot sauce on the side. It's exactly what I needed for a good dinner. 

7:15 p.m. | Before heading out to my parents, we drop by Mom's to pick up a new bottle of red wine, watermelon water, popcornsiete chips. I may have eaten one or two on the way to visit Lita. 

9:30 p.m. | We're back home and quickly change into jammies to watch the latest GoT episode. I have a little bit of popcorn + wine because duh. 

11 p.m. | I drink a glass of water before dead because I'm 100% dehydrated all the time. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

t u e s d a y

5:43 a.m. | I wake up late and miss my spin class. I make a small cup of coffee (this creamer); we grind our beans fresh, but I don't want to wake up Maxim, so I use the small amount of grounds we already have, and head back to bed to get some work done. 

8:30 a.m. | I eat a few bites of baby potatoes that I'd seasoned + roasted last week. I need something in my stomach so I can take my vitamins + acne meds. I'm trying out this vitamin company that curates these daily vitamin packs just for you. Idk if it's doing anything, but I know I need more Omegas + B-12, so I'm super happy to try it out. I wash it down with leftover wine from last night (eh). 

9:55 a.m. | coffee with this creamer + a graze box. It's the "peachy orchard" one wih rhubarb + pear. It's apparently only 110 calories and has tons of fiber, but tbh it's not great and I throw out about half of it. 

1:16 p.m. | I have my Daily Harvest Restore soup — it comes frozen in a cup and you just add water and heat. It's super healthy + super easy. I added in chickpeas and fresh tomatoes and hot sauce. {code phoebe for 3 free soups/smoothies

4 p.m. | I eat some siete chips + a bit of treeline cheese with it. Idk what's wrong with my body, but I'm v hungry and I don't want my stomach to growl in my meeting. I opt to call in so no one hears my stomach growling (lol, but also mortifying). 

6-ish | I'm working and totally forget that I have spin class. I rush to get ready and make myself black coffee to take with me to give me some energy in class. I'm hoping that I make it to spin class on time (traffic sucks).

7:10 p.m. | Make it to spin + S W E A T  it out. ICYMI: I'm a die-hard fan of spin class. If you're a Washingtonian, I swear by Zengo (first class is FREE). 

8:20 p.m. | I walk to Mom's Market before driving home to grab sushi. I eat some a few pieces (veggie rolls with sweaweed, avocado, carrots, cucumber) on my drive home because I'm sooo hungry. 

9:30 p.m. | I'm showered and working with Last Week Tonight on in the background. I wasn't into the sushi so I munch on "Phoebe Trail Mix" (popcorn, mini chocolate chips, raisins, pretzels) + drink red wine — it's a really bad habit to eat late at night, but whatever. 

12:45 a.m. | I drink a glass of water because #hydration. 


w e d n e s d a y

8 a.m. | Coffee mixed with La Colombe Draft Latte. ICYMI: They just came out with two vegan flavors and I'm straight-up hooked. 

11 a.m. | Big handful of almonds + vegan jerky + another big cup of coffee. I'm feeling super out of it today, so I'm trying to kick my brain into action. 

1:30 p.m. | sweetgreen salad (create your own) with a lot of the new season ingredients. I eat half and save the rest for lunch tomorrow. I fill up my water bottle and add a big scoop of Calm powder. 

6 p.m. | I munch on popcorn + drink wine while I finish my Padi certification. Getting my dive certification has been a big thing for me lately, since I'm doing an 80ft dive in November + I want to feel comfortable before then. 

8 p.m. | I'm not super hungry, but I eat a few pieces of sushi while working.

6:10 a.m. | I wake up late and miss my cycle class. I know, I know. The struggle is real, you guys. Don't judge. I head to my apartment's gym to do a quick circuit to get a little sweat going instead. 

7:15 a.m. | I make myself a big cup of coffee to drink while I'm in the shower. I promise you, it's normal. It's called multitasking. I wash my hair and let it air dry — is wet hair work approps? 

8:30 | I make a smoothie to take with me into the office. I'm currently obsessed with Daily Harvest — their smoothies come in these cups where you just add a liquid of your choice, blend + then pour back in. PLUS, their caps have a little straw hole. And honestly, though, they're LIFESAVERS (and Gwyneth approves). 

use code " phoebe " to get 3 free smoothies/soups/etc. 

11:10 a.m. | I grab a BIG handful of wasabi peas. I love easy, crunchy snacks but suddenly feel conflicted about the nutritional value of wasabi peas. I take to the internet + Twitter, concluding that they're healthy enough. They're better than potato chips or soda.

2:15 p.m. | I eat my salad — it's a big mix of shredded kale, beyond meat chicken strips, corn, carrots, cucumbers + wild rice. I add in extra hot sauce. I finish the entire thing in 5 minutes — I'm starving and feel full in a really good way. 

3 p.m. | I fill up my water bottle and remember I need to take my daily vitamins. Are you supposed to take them at the same time every day? 

4:30 p.m. | About to start another meeting and I make myself another big cup of coffee to get me through. 

8:15 p.m. | Finally done with all my work and I use leftover roasted potatoes to whip up a quick veggie-filled potato salad with carrots, local tomatoes, arugula + hot sauce.

5:10 a.m. | I'm up and groggy for 6 a.m. cycle. My biggest trick for getting myself up is sleeping my outfit so I can literally roll out of bed. I grab some socks and go downstairs to drive over. There's old coffee in the car that I sip (in my head it's giving me energy). 

7 a.m. | After class, I always feel so powerful + strong. On the drive home, I make sure to finish my bottle of water since it's likely I won't drink much more water for the rest of the day. Honestly, though, I suck at being hydrated. 

8:15 a.m. | I'm not hungry yet, but I know I will be soon. I grab a pack of dried edamame and a La Colombe Draft Latte and head to the office. I mix my latte with fresh, black coffee. 

11 a.m. | At work I'm prepping a group of interns to be on camera live for an hour and deff need an extra cup of coffee. But I opt for hot tea instead since I feel jittery from the early morning caffeine. 

2 p.m. | Maxim calls to tell me that, if I want it, he's picked up &pizza for us. I'm ecstatic and obviously say yes — who denies themselves pizza on a Friday? I nip home to eat a slice or two then come back to finish up the day. 

5:30 p.m. | I leave the office and head home — pizza still on my mind. We contemplate going out, but we need to be up uber early in the morning for our weekend road trip. Instead, we opt for leftover pizza, red wine + packing.
