The Ultimate Irony
An awesome paleo recipe adapted for the Groks...from the book "Becoming Vegan".
1 cup frozen strawberries
1-2 tsp. cocoa powder
2 tsp. flaxseed oil (I think this was in the vegan recipe for omega-3, you can sub another kind of oil)
3-5 Tbsp. nut butter (cashew or almond)
2-3 Tbsp. orange juice (subbing this for milk reduces carbs by 7g)
2 Tbsp. coconut milk
Blend all ingredients in food processor (works best) or blender.
Makes 2 servings.
Ratios for adapted recipe: approx 515 calories, 7.8 g protein, 59 g carbohydrate, 33 g fat
It is calorically dense and high-carb, but also high-fat so it should be okay as a now-and-then treat that won't spike your insulin.
Stats as of 3/1/12:
5'10" female, 38 y/o
Currently 140 lbs., approx 25% body fat
WEIGHT GOAL: lose a bit more body fat and tighten up the rear end...basically, I want to look great naked. Everywhere else is looking great, but my ass/hips/thighs are being a bit stubborn. TMI?
DAILY MACRO TARGETS: Cal: 1,857. Protein: 100g (400cal). Carb: 75g (300cal). Fat: 128g (1156cal).
EXERCISE GOAL: incorporate 2-3 strength training sessions and 1 sprint session per week.
Looks like something I might have to try. I would substitute something for the flaxseed oil. That has a taste I don't enjoy. Of course, you wouldn't have to try too hard to convince me that coconut oil would work.
