Food, my favorite thing to talk about besides traveling. I think it’s one of the most important aspects of life, not only does it keep us alive, it also brings people together, it’s a break from busy lifestyles and everybody has their own opinion and taste. Do you ever think about a world where everybody has the same taste in foods? Because that world seems boring to me, there would be no difference in foods all around the world. Now you can literally go off to any country in the world and try their cuisine. Okay a little bit of topic here. I have been writing nutrition-based blogs for a while now, advising what foods to eat, what foods to avoid and my experiences with things like intermittent fasting. For this blog I would like to give you some insight into what I actually eat on a daily basis. It will show you that I don’t just talk about staying away from things like sugar and processed foods, but I actually do it.
Before we get into the full content of things, it’s important to realize a couple of different things. I personally don’t care about eating the same thing every single day, that’s why meal-prepping is so easy for me. Yes, I do mix it up every once in a while, but it’s definitely not uncommon for me to eat the same thing for a month straight. If it works, it works. I am currently following the intermittent fasting protocol whenever I can. I fast for at least 14 hours, but preferably 15 or 16. I usually start eating around 10-11 AM and stop eating anywhere between 5:30-7:00 PM. The last thing you should now before we dive into it is I train twice a day, 5 times per week, keep that in mind.
Meal 1- ”breakfast”
My first meal of the day will usually take place somewhere around 10 AM, by that time I have coached my clients for about 2-3 hours and finished up my first training session of the day. This is really the only meal that falls around the same time every day.
- Almond milk
- 75-100 grams of raspberries
- freshly cut ginger
- cinnamon powder
- 1,5 tbs wheat-grass powder
- apple cider vinegar
- 1 sachet of quakers ”protein” oats (37 grams)
- almond milk
- 1-1,5 tsp. of Whole Earth Cocoa & Hazelnut Peanut Butter (this is basically a healthy mix of Nutella and peanut butter)
- ”potentially” some cashew or almonds
Every day is slightly different for me so this meal doesn’t have a particular time stamp on it. Somewhere between 11:30-13:00.
- 150-200 grams of beef
- diced tomatoes
- kidney beans
- sour cream & cheddar cheese
- ”potentially” some cauliflower rice
I use all of this to make a curry like mixture.
Again, this meal is not really time constricted but takes place whenever I have the time, usually somewhere around 2PM-4PM.
- 250-300 grams of yoghurt (Fage)
- 2 pieces of Lindt dark chocolate 85-90%
- nut mix, almonds, cashews, brazil, walnuts
- (some Lizi’s low sugar granola)
- 1,5-2 tsp. natural peanut butter
- flax seeds
This is usually my last meal throughout the day, which takes place somewhere between 17:30-19:00.
- 150-200 grams of chicken
- grilled vegetables, broccoli and carrots
- some perinaisse
I guess some would consider meal 3 a snack as well, but it definitely feels like a meal to me. My only true ”snack” or ”mini-meal” as I like to call it is 2-3 eggs + half an avocado + tuna or 2 slices of halloumi cheese (when I am at home).
As you can see, my day of eating is structured around whole and nutritious foods. I try to stay away from processed foods as much as I can. I get a lot of nutrients in from my green smoothie in the morning and keep the train rolling with all the veggies and other nutrition rich foods I eat throughout the day.
If you like the content that I am bringing out 3 times a week, every week, I would appreciate if you could share and like this blog so I am able to reach more people.
