What on my menu

I’ve been really enjoying my food for the last few weeks and have been feeling strong and healthy so I thought I’d share with you what my day looks like.

Like Liz I’m eating almost Paleo and am trying to stick to PN rules. In the past I’ve thought PN had to be low-carb but I did my number the other day and found out I was eating about 40%, 40%, 20%.

Here’s a standard day:

Breaky: 100g frozen peas, 100g frozen spinach, tuna, sweet chilli sauce, fish oil capsules, green tea with vital greens. Plum
Morning tea: 4 thai chicken meatballs (Chicken, ginger, coriander, spring onion and garlic), 1 large zucchini sliced and microwave, sweet chilli sauce (my vice)
Lunch: Salad of Roo, rocket, capsicum, slice pear, artichoke hearts, 3 fish oils
Afternoon tea: Fritata- 4 white, 1 whole egg, asparagus, capsicum, a tiny bit of pea protein powder, grated zucchini
Workout: Xtend
Post-Workout: 15g Max’s vanilla WPI, digestive enzyms, 30g GenTec Pure Carbs, creatine, glutamine
Dinner: Lean steak, roasted pumpkin, peas. 3 fish oil capsules
Before bed: Plum, egg white, strawberry protein powder, water all mixed together and microwaved for 1 min. digestive enzymes.
Bedtime sups: 2 ZMA, peppermint and licorice tea.
