Ever Wonder What I Eat....?

I am frequently asked what my food intake looks like? How am I prepping for my next competition? What do I eat, how do I eat? How much? This is a weeks worth of eating for me. I am not trying to cut too much yet for my next competition, which is on June 6th. I will be doing that soon, but my food intake is not going to change drastically from this. 

Something to keep in mind, this is what WORKS for me. It does not mean it will work for you nor is it how you should eat. What it gives, is a good idea of healthy food choices and clean eating. 

One of the first things you will notice, I do not eat 5 or 6 small meals through out the day. I usually eat 2 meals, they are big meals, when I eat, I eat. There is no messing around, I nourish my body. Sometimes I do have a snack and sometimes I eat three meals, depends on how my body feels and when I am hungry. Again, this is what works for me.
I also will eat a lot of the same things in a week. It is easy to cook a large portion and then have it for several meals. The next week, I try to have different foods, gives variety and a good nutrition profile.
First thing in the morning, I drink a glass of water and take my thyroid medication. Then, I take the Boys, my dogs, for their walk, open run time, this is about an hour and half to two hours of exercise. I eat breakfast after this, so I am fasting several hours before eating my first meal. 
Supplements I take: Vit. D, desiccated liver, gelatin, Mega-Mag

Here you go!

Breakfast, bullet coffee, about 2 TBS of butter and 3 TBS of coconut oil, this is about the same every time I have it
3 medium eggs, scrambled with home made salsa, cheese and seasoning on a coconut tortilla that I made  

After workout snack/lunch:
Bone broth with gelatin and some nuts

Dinner: Chicken with seasoning, an Indian dish and Brussels sprouts with rhubarb 

Breakfast was bullet coffee with 2 eggs, blended in the coffee, raw eggs
Coconut tortilla with almond butter 

My Grandparents!
I went out with my Grandparents! I try and visit with them once a week, it is very important to me to spend this time with them. They were so excited to take me out for lunch, new restaurant in their city. I had a salad at Costa Vida, pork, no rice, and I did not eat the shell 

Snack, coconut oil about one tsp, one hard boiled egg and some guacamole 

Dinner: beef stir fry, rice, variety of veggies, red curry with full fat coconut milk

Bullet coffee, bacon and protein pancake with butter, honey and a kiwi 

After workout snack/lunch
Bone broth with gelatin and half coconut tortilla with almond butter

Dinner: 2 Brawts and a rice dish, veggies black beans, meat and seasonings

You guessed it, bullet coffee and protein pancakes, with almond butter, a kiwi and honey

Dinner was mixed green salad with veggies and chicken, in my own marinade.

Before a morning workout I had coffee with full fat cream

Lunch, protein pancakes with butter

Dinner, I did not take pictures, we went out to dinner with my mom, very unusual that I ate out twice in a week. We had sushi with tempura veggies and some fried things. It was very tasty. I love sushi.
 I had a hard boiled egg, some pineapple when we came home and then popcorn and a grapefruit margarita, while we watched a movie  

Before my workout, I had coffee with cream
Brunch, coffee with cream, bacon, eggs and pancakes, we put real maple syrup on our pancakes, nice change

Dinner: Slow Cooker Kalua Pig salad with peppers, radishes, cheese and guacamole
I have extra of the pork so it will be used for the next week's meals.

Mother's Day, Sunday:
We had breakfast at Church, eggs, ham, orange slices and coffee.
Rest of the day:
Jello shots, chips and salsa, a couple of other drinks, hamburgers without the bun, large lettuce salad and a slice of cake for dessert.

Not pictured, most nights I also had a beer that my Hubby brews with dinner and other times I had a margarita of some type. Yup, I have had a drink even while prepping for my competition. 

That is it, my week of eating. None of it is hard, it can take some planning and adjusting at first, but once you are used to it, it is normal life. I hope this gives you some good ideas and help you see eating healthy is easy, fun and very tasty.

Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God bless,
