Nutrition is pretty darn important this week too. I plan to eat the hell out of some veggies, while also upping my protein intake so I recover well (so more protein shakes for me). Carbo-loading? Meh… not for me. I’ll stick to carbohydrates I know I can handle, so mainly complex ones from vegetables with some rice and noodles thrown in here and there. My stomach gets real mad when I pump it full of random starch so I like to avoid this at all costs. So enjoy some fun foodie porn from this week.
Food Prep Monday results:
Kale Salad for lunch/snack:
Some rules for salad:
- 70% of the bowl should be greens (see first picture above)
- 20-25% should be the extra veggies (here I added mushrooms, cucumbers, and tomatoes)
- The remaining 5-10% can be some sort of nut or berry (here I used sliced almonds)
- Be easy on the dressing. For this giant bowl I used about a cup of homemade dressing.
I plan to make vegetable stir fry with rice noodles for tomorrow’s dinner (with leftovers for lunch to give me a mini-break from the curry).
