I give March 1st a little courtesy and sway my arm to the side, palm up, to welcome in VITALITY, ENERGY, HAPPINESS, HEALTH AND SLIMMING BODIES!
I have no idea how you will view this situation, but I waved February goodbye with a handful of dark chocolate candy and pistachio nuts last night! I view the situation with two thumbs down because, although I did not go overboard, I definetly woke up this morning with a large stomach ache. I guess that just goes to show that the past 5 weeks of Paleo eating has really been cleaning my insides. I am so sensitive! Note: taste over health? HEALTH!
So, I said that I will be showing more of my eats and pictures of them… maybe this will help show you guys the correct portion sizes and the macronutrients of how I have been eating.
Breakfast: Breakfast is very important and I am trying to stay away from oatmeal, cereal, waffles, things of that nature. That makes me crave carbs and sugar for the rest of the day. Lately I have been eating omelets, sunny side up eggs with sauteed veggies, carrots and celery in nut butter and a protein shake, smoothies or… tuna fish. I know. That sounds weird, but once you stop thinking of breakfast as a time to eat heavy carbs and sugary things, you tend to get creative. I ate a bowl of tuna fish this morning because I wanted to distance myself as far as possible from the feelings of my stomach hurting. Protein seemed key. It went undocumented. I also had 1/2 cup of hot green tea.
I went to work, trained some clients, worked out and came home to make myself a delicious lunch my client has been telling me about. While the dish was cooking in the oven, I took a small spoonful (3/4 tsp?) of sunflower seed butter.
I preheated the oven to 450 degrees, took a head of romaine, cut it in half length wise, and placed it in a baking dish. Sardines made their way into a bowl with a tbsp of minced garlic and a large squeeze of lemon. I mixed it up and slide the mixture into all the nook and crannies of the lettuce. Sprinkled s&p on it and placed lemon slices on top. Baked for 8 minutes. I ate one of the halves. I really enjoyed it, but I have to admit… I drizzled a little of Paul Newman’s Italian Dressing on top.
I used my beloved blender after I ate to make myself a choc blub smoothie! In the blenda went:
1/2 cup blueberries, ice, big handful of baby spinach, 1.5 cups almond milk, 1.5 scoops choc protein powder and 1 tbsp organic dark choc cocoa.
Pack it up and hit the road. Destination… BAWS
I have a couple more clients to train this afternoon, a bootcamp class and then I will find myself parked at my dinning room table eating the other half of the deconstructed “caesar salad”. I have been enjoying a hot cupa green tea after dinner. Who knows, maybe another spoonful of my fav… sunflower buttah!
Have a great day guys! Eat clean, train smart, discipline your brain.
