What do you eat on a general day?
Because of my early starts to coach and train as a competitive athlete my diet really needs to support my energy levels,hormonal status, and repair. An average day looks something like this:
- Apple cider vinegar in warm water
- Vital Greens in water
- 1 cup of bone broth
- 1 cup of black tea
- 1/2 cup of oats cooked in water, with cinnamon and vanilla
After training in the morning: Progenex protein shake and breakfast, which is approximately 1 1/2 cups of cooked vegetables depending on what I have in the fridge and 2 eggs
Lunch: Vegetables and leftover meat from dinner the night before. The meat is always varied and the vegetables are usually roast sweet potato, pumpkin, beetroot etc. I like the starchy vegetables because they provide me with more energy for training.
After training in the afternoon: Progenex protein shake (I train twice per day in comp season).
Dinner: Usually roast vegetables with green vegetables in the pan. My favourite greens are bok choy, asparagus, broccolini and brussels sprouts. I chop them all up and cook them quickly in the fry pan in a little bit of ghee.
Snacks: I only snack if it’s a big training day and my body is telling me to. I’ll have some blueberries with a little bit of high quality yoghurt.
