Daring to Bear…the food edition

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:

Mango Curry
Mango Curry for lunch this week

Some rules for salad:

  1. 70% of the bowl should be greens (see first picture above)
  2. 20-25% should be the extra veggies (here I added mushrooms, cucumbers, and tomatoes)
  3. The remaining 5-10% can be some sort of nut or berry (here I used sliced almonds)
  4. 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).

Eat Well,

Em
