Let’s face it, most fitness instructors are the epitome of #bodygoals. We know that they live active lives because it’s their job. But, we also know that eating right is the most important ingredient in the healthy lifestyle recipe.

So what do fitness professionals, such as Becca Pace, a Daily Burn 365 fitness instructor, eat daily?

Breakfast of a fitness champion

Fruits, paired with granola or Greek yogurt is always a solid option. Not only is it easy to prepare, which is a must for those especially tough mornings, but it will give you the energy you need to have a badass start to your day.

Lunch

Like breakfast, lunch can’t always be something elaborate that takes time to prepare. Some days are busier than others, but that doesn’t mean that you should fall off the healthy bandwagon for some fast food on these days. Evolution Fresh not only has fresh juices and smoothies that can be found at Starbucks, they also have soups. According to Pace, these veggie fusion soups are “so yummy, so healthy, but hearty to keep me full for a few hours, which is important.”

Dinner

Is dinnertime your absolute favorite? It’s not easy to select the best nutritious option for this meal. You’re tired and ready to relax. Not to mention, you are probably starving. Even though you are super hungry, don’t over estimate your meal size. This often leads to over eating because it’s hard to not finish that plate! If you have had an active day, like Pace does most days of the week, you will need carbs after burning all of those calories. These should be paired with protein and something green, of course.

Dessert

A life without dessert is not worth living, am I right? Even Pace eats ice cream a few times a week. If you love having something to look forward to at the end of the day, stick to a guilt-free one like a smoothie pop or sorbet. It’s okay to cheat with a not so healthy dessert, but when you do consider having it post-lunch, instead of right before bed.
