absolutely amazing you guys are gonna
love them they’re an online food
marketplace and they sell so many like
I’m talking thousands of options these
are options that you’ll find at your
local Whole Foods or your local grocery
store but they sell them for literally
twenty five to fifty percent off the
traditional price which I absolutely
love you guys know I’m on a money-saving
kick I’ve really been trying to kind of
budget lately and save money you guys
know I really want to purchase a home so
that’s kind of what I’ve been really
focusing on is saving money so I love
how thrive market does that you can be
healthy you can still eat healthy but at
an affordable price I know a lot of
people think that eating healthy is
unachievable because it’s expensive so I
love health thrive market makes it easy
for you to kind of save but still be
healthy at the same time they sell a lot
of the products that I personally love
but they haven’t for way cheaper what I
love about them too is you can filter
the kind of shopping process so if
you’re gluten-free or have any other
dietary needs you can kind of filter the
shopping process to only show you let’s
say gluten-free items and I love that
cuz it just makes it easier I know going
to the grocery store can be kind of
overwhelming for some people and just
confusing with all the different aisles
so that just makes it easier they also
don’t just sell food items they sell
cleaning products baby products just
anything that you would find at your
local grocery store so if you guys are
interested in checking out thrive market

which is amazing and also a 30-day free
trial so I’ll leave the link down below
for thrive market if you guys are
interested and other than that let’s
just go ahead and get into the wedding
today and we’re gonna head into the
kitchen and make some breakfast
so for breakfast I’ve really just been
loving some classic bacon and eggs so
I’m taking this turkey bacon but first
I’m gonna use this avocado oil thrive
market sells it for a really great price
I love this avocado oil spray so I’m
gonna use that on a nonstick pan for the
bacon and for the eggs so I’m going to
be using this turkey bacon it’s only 30
calories per slice and they’re really
big slices so I really like these and
they taste really good too
I’m also you guys are gonna see like in
a little while I’m also gonna be putting
two turkey sausages but for the eggs I’m
gonna just do a little bit of spinach in
the pan first just to warm up the
spinach you get it kind of cooking down
so that I can put it in the eggs okay so
for a while now I’ve been super
religious about having fruit every
single morning and it has helped so much
I just notice I’m so much more
productive today I have so much more
energy and I keeps me fuller and I like
it because I get to make sure I get my
fruit in as soon as the morning comes so
that I don’t forget throughout the day
so it’s just a way for me to make sure
I’m eating my fruits so for today I
decided to cut up some mango I probably
should have cut it like the easier way
you know where you don’t peel it but I
just I don’t know I felt like peeling it
and then I am gonna have just a few
strawberries and of course rinse those
as well
so now that the spinach is kind of you
know cooked down a little bit and it’s
shrunk a little bit I’m gonna add two
egg whites and I’m skipping the yolks
I’ve just been doing that lately you
know we don’t wasted the yolks by the
way so yeah don’t worry about it but
yeah I also put this on Montreal chicken
spice by the way at what I was saying
was the yolks are not bad for you too
all they’re super nutritious
I just really love egg whites got a
thing for them so that’s why you guys
notice me skipping them a lot and I’m
kind of just scrambling it up and that’s
pretty much it you guys this breakfast
is so full in volume like the plate is
full but it’s only 250 calories so I
love how you get your fruits and
everything this is just goes to show you
if you make better food choices in terms
of calories you can still have good
volume it just depends what you eat so
this keeps you super full and there’s
tons of great protein and nutrients here
too so for lunch my sister actually gave
me this like chicken quesadilla idea and
I loved it by the way it tastes amazing
it’s actually up on her channel if you
guys want to see it but I thought also
hmmm what if I did like a pizza
quesadilla or kind of like a pizza
pocket so that’s what I’m doing today it
was actually my first time making it I
just took two of these tortillas one of
them is 100 calories which is really
good so I took this strained tomato
sauce from thrive market that they sell
for a great price of course and I love
this because it’s only Tomatoes one
ingredient you don’t need any added
sugar no added salt or anything so I’m
just adding a little bit of that and
then I am gonna add some turkey
pepperoni on top of it as well I love
the turkey pepperoni because it’s only
40 calories for 10 slices even though
today I just used 7 slices but yeah
super low calorie and great protein
and then to be honest you can add any
type of veggies that you like I’m just
gonna add some onions and a bunch of
spinach I just realized I use spinach in
every single meal in this video but I’ve
really been loving spinach lately and it
just helps me get more greens in anyways
I’m gonna kind of shred up some spinach
just to rip it apart and then I’m gonna
add the cheese on top now I love
measuring cheese with this quarter cup
scoop because it just makes it so easy I
don’t have to measure it but I still
know how many calories I’m having and
it’s just great portion control so one
full quarter cup is about a hundred
calories so I kind of just did a little
bit under that you know just to watch
the cheese a little bit but yeah this
was about 80 to 90 calories of cheese
and I put it on top just so that the you
know tortilla we put on top of here can
like stick and it can all adhere
together now you want to put like a
really heavy pot on top so that it can
really get pressed together and it can
become like a little bit like a sandwich
little pocket pizza pocket thingy and
once that’s done you want to flip it
over but you want to flip it over really
fast as you can see here yeah so that it
doesn’t fall apart and then put the pot
on it again and honestly this is like
the quickest meal ever it literally
takes you guys like five maybe six
minutes it’s so quick and easy and like
I said my sister does like a chicken
quesadilla version of this which I eat
as well and I love it it’s really good
so I am just cutting it up into four
pieces and I really like to have mine
with sriracha sauce so you guys know I’m
a huge huge spicy hot sauce lover so
I’ll just go ahead and dip mine into
this and it’s so good like I said this
was my first time making this and it was
really good and reminded me of like you
know those old-school pizza pockets I
used to eat as a kid and the whole thing
is only 350 calories which is good so
for dinner
I just cubed up some chicken and now I’m
putting some salt and black pepper cuz
we’re gonna be making some stir-fry when
I showed you guys this stir-fry on IG
and on the vlog Channel you guys went
crazy and you’re like please show me the
whole recipe so here it is it is so good
you guys like it’s really good and it’s
a really easy way to get a ton of
veggies in I’m not a big fan of eating
like you know just regular old veggies
this is a great way of getting them in
anyways I am just sauteing some garlic
and some ginger in the pan and I have a
pot boiling some water with a little bit
of that same avocados from thrive market
I’m just boiling the water now so that
it can be ready later for the noodles
and you’re just gonna pretty much cook
your chicken and wait until it gets
super browned and obviously cooked
through which usually takes about you
know 15 minutes ish and I do keep this
on medium heat once that’s done I take
it out of the pan this was actually one
chicken breast
I am only I’m gonna be making like a lot
of stir-fry but I was the only one who
kind of want my own serving of chicken
so that’s why I just made one breast but
if you want enough chicken for like the
whole stir-fry that I’m making usually
two chicken breast is good enough
anyways we’re adding some carrots some
broccoli salt and pepper on that as well
and then add any other veggies that you
want
I usually to be honest add a bunch of
veggies that I have in the fridge so I’m
using these cut green beans from thrive
market these are really great I also
usually add some corn in as well to be
honest every single time I make the this
recipe there’s like different veggies in
it every time because you can just take
whatever veggies you have in your fridge
throw them in there I usually like to
use fresh veggies but a lot of the times
it’s just more convenient to have frozen
ones which is kind of what I did today
for half of them and then I put a bunch
of spinach because spinach really
spinach really shrinks down when you
cook it so adding a whole bunch of it is
a really great way to just get a ton of
spinach in your meal and I do like to
add some green onion and then these are
the noodles that I use which I really
like them they taste really good but
they’re 40 calories like around 40
calories less than most brands of chow
mein noodles so I was kind of like at
the grocery store checking out all the
calories and these seem to be the lowest
calorie you know what now that I’m
looking at it you could do even half
squash noodles like if you want to do
like a low carb or just full squash
noodles that would work as well but you
know me I just go full in all in with
the noodles yeah so I’m just mixing it
all up making sure I get the veggies all
up in there so that it’s all even and
then I’m adding this liquid aminos I got
it from thrive market great price
because it’s usually super expensive at
other food markets but
what I love about this is it’s a great
natural alternative to soy sauce normal
soy sauce has like I think 15 to 20
calories whereas this has zero and then
I’m adding some hoisin sauce and some
lemon ginger sauce these sauces are you
know they’re not extremely low calorie
but they’re actually pretty good so I do
just add like a little bit of that and
plum sauce is the magic key to this I
got this one from thrive market this is
the magic stuff for the stir-fry you
guys it’s gonna give it a nice sweet
taste in combination with the hoisin
sauce it’s amazing you just add one so
you just want to add some of that I can
barely talk today and then just stir
that all up and make sure it’s all
evenly coated and I always always like
to do like a little taste test to see if
it needs more soy sauce or if it needs
more plum sauce so if it needs something
sweeter I’ll add more plum sauce if it
needs more salt I’ll add more of the
liquid aminos
and that’s pretty much it then I’ll put
some on the plate what I love about this
is it looks like you’re having a lot but
really since this is so full of veggies
that takes up a lot of the volume as
well so it looks like you’re having like
a super big portion but when really half
of it is like broccoli and all your
veggies and then I’m adding some of the
chicken in if you are you know having
chicken for all of the servings of the
stir-fry add the chicken in the pot I’m
just having chicken just on my serving
that’s why I kind of put it separately
but yeah so I usually count this recipe
for about 550 you know just because of
the noodles it does run a little bit
high but it is so delicious really good
and I do try to put more of the veggies
on my plate you know to kind of take up
more of the volume and then at night you
guys know I have a sweet tooth and I
love you know I love my junk food so I
leave like 10% of my day to have some
ice cream or something sweet so I love
those little Smarties mini cone and
thrive market offers these really great
peanut butter cups that are awesome as
well for a dessert option so that is
pretty much it for my what I eat a day I
hope you guys enjoyed and I will see you
guys in my next video
