Is it Spring yet?! I don’t know where you all are right now, but I hope is somewhere warmer than New Jersey. This weather is for the birds, man. Since I don’t have the luxury of hibernating all winter (bears have all the fun) I have been cooking some warm savory dishes to comfort myself during these frigid temperatures.
I have been trying to work on cleaning up my diet, since I can’t lift super heavy with my back right now, at least I can focus on clean eating to stay in shape. I am logging all of my meals (not tracking macros) and literally jotting down everything I stuff in my face (including Costco samples). Keeping a food journal has given me an increased level of awareness to my eating habits. I am now figuring out what works best, what gives me energy, and what leaves me feeling dull and sluggish. I highly recommend you do the same, especially if you have any health issues. Here’s an example of what I ate over the course of a day:
1. Egg White Omelette with Peppers, Onions, Spinach, and Avocado
2. Grilled Chicken with Kale, Broccolini, and Mushroom Sauté
3. Plant Fusion Protein Powder (Post Workout)
4. Slow Cooker Veal Shoulder, Sweet Potato Fries, Peas
