Eating to Maintain IIFYM

Since I'm working with a nutritionist to get my metabolism back in tip-top shape, she has me eating to maintain. Which basically means if I eat the calories, protein, fat and carbs that she tells me to every single day, I shouldn't gain weight.

For two weeks I ate at maintenance to see what would happen. Well, I lost three pounds! My nutritionist isn't cutting my macros just yet because she likes what she is seeing, but she is giving me a fat and carb range for rest and active days, but my protein and calories will stay the same.

Here's a peak at some of the meals and snacks I've been enjoying.

Creamy avocado pesto topped with cheese!
Drinking sparkling water from a wine glass is so much more fun! (The white stuff is Greek yogurt, don't knock it till you try it)
Tuesday's are Honeycrisp Apple Day at the office!
Sweet Potato and Roasted Cauliflower soup with a little side salad with rotisserie chicken
My favorite yogurt out there
Warm, brothy, filling, chicken wild rice soup with veggies and a side salad with grapes and balsamic vin/evoo dressing 
These two are staples in my desk cabinet. Always there to get me through the day. 
Why yes, that is a glass of wine! IIFYM If It Fits Your Macros
Other snacks and meals I've been enjoying:
Chili - tis the season!
String cheese
Plain Greek yogurt with honey
Dark chocolate squares (at least 72% cacao)
Halo Top because I live for mint ice cream
Carrot sticks
Protein shake with almond milk
