Alternate title: I Eat Giant Bowls of Food!
Giant stainless steel “salad bowls.” Yeaah.
Things I couldn’t do it without:
- sweet potatoes
- spring salad mix
- Tessemae’s hot sauce (available at Whole Foods, I wouldn’t reccomend ordering online. They have some issues)
- Wholly Guacamole
- Sun Prairie GF Beef and other high quality chicken & pork
- The Original Brat Hans — Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage or Spicy Italian (available only at Whole Foods)
- Applegate Organics bacon
- coconut oil
I cook up entire packages of The Original Brat Hans or Applegate Organics dinner sausages ahead of time so I can just microwave them and throw them into a little power bowl.
Ever since we bought a box full of grass-fed beef from Sun Prairie, we can’t go back. If you’re local, you should check it out. So worth it.
Oops. There was spinach in there too. It’s just very wilted. The fridge was really empty this day, but I was trying to eat a LOT of food. I’d been feeling really hungry DURING CrossFit workouts which isn’t cool. I sauteéd all the ingredients together in some coconut oil. It was delicious! My back squats thanked me — 2 reps & 185lbs. Plus the build-up to that and 9-7-5 reps at 135lbs during the wod.
PaleOMG chicken fajita slow cooker stew thrown on some spinach and topped with Wholly Guac.
ALMOST paleo. The pork was cooked in Tessemae’s (paleo) bbq sauce, but the dressing has dairy! Oh well. We had it in the fridge, and it’s still mostly good for you, in my opinion.
So that’s what I’ve been eating out of my giant bowl, and I’m feeling really good this week. I’m honestly already feeling better in my workouts (and after!!!!!!!) sinc re-dedicating myself to eating according to my goals. I’m also tracking (for a while until I get tired of it) my food on MyFitnessPal if you want to be friends. I know you want more chances to follow me. Just trying to make sure I get decent protein and that I’m eating enough before my workouts. It’s also a great reality check on SUGARRRR, and I’m actually trying to keep my carbs a bit higher because I’m pretty stinking active and it makes me feel better. :)
What’s your secret weapon when it comes to healthy eating? We’re actually thinking of buying a few more bowls because sometimes one is in the dishwasher (and we can’t be expected to hand wash!!!!!). And Kevin wants one for work. Awwa.
