Do as I do - AND say! - Day 4

Not your typical day of food on this specific day. You will see that I have eggs throughout the day, this week in the form of soft/hard-boiled eggs but I don't always consume them at breakfast. These pictures are posted in sequence of my meals throughout the day. 

That in mind, remember that you don't always have to have breakfast food... for breakfast! I loooove having breakfast food like eggs and bacon for dinner! I don't know why or how this whole breakfast foods must be consumed in the morning shenanigans started but lets break that habit! Enjoy this days food and I hope I have inspired you to eat more fresh, wholesome foods... cooking is fun, enjoyable, therapeutic and tastes absolutely stellar! If you don't know how to cook you might want to buy a cookbook that helps you or take some cooking classes. Without further adieu...
Morning Conditioning = some carbs & protein (tapioca crepes!)

Breakfast of veggies and GF ground beef!

Delicious snack of almonds and coconut butter.

Small meal pre-workout.

Post-Workout: Awesome crepes, banana and whey with water!

Post-Workout: sweet potato!

A few eggs (cage free of course) with some veggies.

A couple more eggs with a little yams and veggies!

And finally a few toasted almond slivers!

Hope you all enjoyed what I ate :) Now get out there and please eat some good food that is good for you! Oh and lift some weights while you're at it! (I love dead-lifts and squats) Get it!

In Health,

Do as I do - AND say! - Day 3

Another day of successful and delicious food! I love eating fresh, whole, natural food as close to the farm as I can get. I find that not only does it keep my body composition in check but fuels me throughout the day and helps me feel GREAT! Try grass-fed beef this week and I think you won't go back.. better fatty acid profile and the taste is out of this world. Also keep in mind that food not only affects how we look but more importantly how we feel. To the pics!

Hard-Boiled eggs and zucchini squash.
Coconut butter mixed with slivered almonds and cinnamon. Awesome snack!
Post-Workout: Whey protein shake with an apple and a root bake!
Post-Workout: Yams.
Another coconut butter and almond snack.

Grass-fed ground beef with sauteed cabbage and an egg!

That's it for another great day of awesome tasting food that helped me feel amazing! Keep eating fresh and lift some heavy weights!

Do as I do - AND say! - Day 2

Okay here is day 2 of my week! As you can see, I have recently incorporated whey protein shakes into my post workout window, usually with a piece of fruit (banana, peach or berries preferred) and a root vegetable like a sweet potato or yam. Enjoy!

Breakfast - Eggs and veggies!
Snack - coconut butter with slivered almonds and cinnamon.
Pre-Workout: GF Ground beef and veggies with a coffee.

Post-Workout: Whey Isolate Shake and a banana.

Post-Workout: Yams!
Last calamari steak with yams.

Quote of the day: "You can't 'sculpt' your body without first building the muscle." -Lou Shuler, The New Rules of Lifting

Hope you had a great day!! Get some sleep, eat a great fresh meal and lift some weights!

Do as I do - AND say!

I do this stuff because I love it. I really do. I also thoroughly believe that if you want to look good, feel good and move well, eating a diet that is rich in stuff like meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit and good fats is probably the best way to achieve that! I believe it to be extremely important for one to practice what they preach and so for the next 7 days, I will post a photo diary of the past 7 days of the food that I ate. It really isn't that difficult to eat healthy and delicious and set yourself up for success to get to your goals if you have basic cooking skills, shop fresh and be prepared. This will be a series of posts that will show you a visual representation of what foods I like to eat and what has helped me stay extremely lean, fuel my workouts and feel amazing! Here is day 1:

GrassFed Ground Beef with sauteed spinach and cilantro.
No Oat Oatmeal made with Almond meal, coconut milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon and a dash of sea salt.
GF Ground beef with zucchini and cilantro.

Post Workout: 1 Scoop of Whey Isolate with 1 banana and 1 Yam (not pictured) 

More GF Ground beef with sliced heirloom tomato and cilantro.
Steamed carrots cooked in coconut oil and a soft boiled egg!
Pan-fried Calamari Steak with sauteed green cabbage and spinach salad. Delish!
So there is day 1 ... I hope you got some ideas and remember that food affects how you look but more importantly how you feel!

Until tomorrow,
