What do I eat in 24 hours?
If you’ve been following along since the start of January, you will have seen an array of posts that include recipes, nutrient dense foods, and meal recommendations.
My focus is always on a hearty serving of protein & healthy fats at every meal, and I very rarely snack.
Yes, I drink coffee (but go through periods of limiting or avoiding it), and consume lots of water.
Much of the meals I suggest are ones that I keep in my regular rotation, but I know that many of you appreciate specifics. This being said, are you curious about what exactly this looks like on a day-to-day basis?
Well, here it is, a typical day looks like the following:
Breakfast – 3-egg omelette with green onions, broccoli & tomato. Cooked and topped with butter and generously salted with Celtic salt & freshly cracked black pepper.
Lunch – leftover sliced chicken breast reheated in cast iron pan with plenty of butter; served over greens with cucumber & tomato. Generously salted with Celtic salt & freshly cracked black pepper.
Dinner – slow cooked inside round roast with carrots, onions & celery. I ate mine like soup using some of the drippings + homemade gravy. My gravy is super easy and has no added flours; meat drippings + gelatin + butter).
If this sounds like a lot of work to you, please don’t be discouraged, I have a couple of suggestions.
1. Firstly, while I cook up my omelette fresh every day, you can also make a large batch of mini omelettes using muffin tins and storing them in the freezer. Just reheat as needed!
2. My lunch is almost always leftovers or something really quick. Get in the habit of preparing enough for leftovers whenever you can, or chop/prepare extra veggies when you’re making salads, stir-fry’s, roasts etc.
3. I use the hell out of my slow cooker! If it’s not in the garage simmering away my bone broth, I’m using it for roasts, soups, stews etc. It allows me to set it and forget it, and makes large portions that I can use over the course of days, or freeze for later.
