Almost four weeks ago now I started working with the girls at Nalu Active to get in shape for my holiday in September. I’ll go into this in more detail at the weekend but as I said you guys seem really interested in what I eat so I thought I would share with you a (almost) typical low carb day.
Regardless of whether or not I am on a ‘low’ or ‘high’ carb day, I start each morning with a glass of lemon infused water and a cup of my favourite Beanies coffee. I always keep a bottle of cold water in the fridge as it is so important to stay hydrated to keep your body firing on all cylinders.
On a weekend my breakfast tends to be an Omelette as it’s the only time that I get chance to make them! This is one of my favourites and is simply; 4 Eggs (4 Whites, 1 Yolk), Goats Cheese, Spinach & Sundried Tomatoes. It goes down perfectly with a nice cup of Green Tea, which incidentally I drink by the bucket load!
This is one of my favourite lunches and is again one I only enjoy at weekends because I can spend a little time preparing it. Heck Chicken Sausages are my BAE’s (yes I went there) and Turkey Bacon isn’t far behind. Simply grilled off and served with green veggies and a handful of cashew nuts. During the day I only drink herbal tea’s or water because my skin hasn’t got time for sugary drinks and neither does my waistline!
Post training, instead of your standard Protein shake, I grab my Breville Blend Active and mix up a bowl of Proats to enjoy. At the moment I am using the Soy Protein Isolate from My Protein & the My Protein FlavDrops too. I find that normal Whey Protein is too heavy for me and makes me feel really bloated and heavy which isn’t what I want (or need) at all. You can buy the My Protein powders unflavoured too which is really useful for things like smoothies and Proats as you just add a few FlavDrops to the mix to taste.
Finally on a Low Carb day I usually finish off the day with a hearty meal of meat, veggies and nuts. However on this day I’d run out of nuts and ended up adding a little pitta bread into the mix instead! We get all of our meat from Muscle Food as the quality is not only amazing, but the hampers last us about 6 weeks too which is great value. This is one of their Dragon Fire Hache Steaks (although I only had a portion of this not the whole thing) and as scary as they sound they’re delicious.
If I feel the need to snack, which let’s face it most of the time I do, I reach for things such as Eggs, Nuts and of course Protein shakes but on a weekend I don’t feel that I need as much because I’m not sat at my desk for 8 hours straight!
I really hope you have enjoyed this post, let me know your thoughts below, including any other requests you have and I’ll catch up with you again soon, until then though x
