Typical day of eating:
, some type of veggie (asparagus, spinach), small piece of fruit, maybe some bacon, chicken or turkey sausage
(I read labels so no gluten etc.). Coffee with 1-2 T of coconut milk. I use maybe 1/2 T of butter
to cook the stuff
Lunch varies, but typically a lot of lean protein. Today was a salad with 6 oz of chicken breast, artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes and maybe 1/2 T of olive oil
. Some days I just have a couple of boiled eggs and turkey. Sometimes I throw in fruit (particularly on cross fit day).
Dinner is generally grilled meat in some form (chicken, lamb, steak
), cooked with no extra fat. Sides vary, but generally a veggie prepared with about 1/2 T of fat
. 2-3 times a week, there might be a sweet potato or winter squash. Maybe 2 times a month, potatoes or rice. I often have fruit if I didn't have any at lunch.
I rarely "snack". I might have a snack 1-2 times a week and it is generally either an egg
of some sort or a small amounts of nuts like 20 almonds. 2-3 times a month I have a more serious snack- like yesterday I ate a regular muffin (grain based treats are really rare for me- like once every couple months), sometimes something like a paleo cake
or ice cream (I just realized I have not had ice cream since September...). I stay conscious of the calories - for example, if I have a paleo cake for dessert, I would not have a sweet potato and would prepare my veggies with minimal fat at dinner.
