Mini Assignment #2: Wonder Woman’s Meal Plan

Hello everyone, Wonder Woman here. I’ve been asked to share an example of what i eat in a day as a Super Hero. For me, everyday is different depending on what adventures and missions i have planned. I make sure to always take care of my self and nourish my body to the best of my ability. I would describe my average day of eating incredibly similar to an athlete as their goal is to also maximize their bodies performance just like me.

Breakfast: 7:00 a.m.

  • Two egg whites and one whole egg
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal with 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 16 ounces of water

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I never skip breakfast to ensure max energy from the start of my morning.

Mid-Morning Snack: 10:00 a.m.

  • 1/2 cup fresh fruit and 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt
  • 16 ounces of water

Lunch: 12:30 p.m.

  • Grilled chicken breast (8 ounces)
  • Spinach (1/2 cup)
  • Medium baked potato
  • 16 ounces of water

One of the things I always live by is “Everything in moderation.” As Wonder Woman some may wonder if I have ever struggled with my relationship with food like so many other young woman. I have started to realize that food is fuel and is meant to nourish my body so it can endure everything I put it through.

Dinner: 7:00 p.m.

  • Grilled salmon (8 ounces)
  • Brown rice (1 cup)

  • 16 ounces of water and peanut butter with crackers or apple

  • Glass of low fat chocolate milk
