My Whole30 future self is still cringing at my CARB Macro percentage. When I look at the data, it’s really my breakfasts that are hurting me. This is a perfect example… barely any protein in this coffee and Larabar. I workout in the evenings. Your muscles need protein and after you fast overnight your body really needs some in the morning. I know a lot of lifters actually drink a Casein protein shake before bed because Casein protein absorbs more slowly giving the body a steady stream of protein while they sleep. Since Casein is dairy proteins it is something I don’t want to drink.
Sometimes I cut up a bunch of sweet potatoes and put them in tupperware in the fridge. Then all I have to do is dump some in the fry pan with some ghee and then top with an egg once cooked. It only takes about 15 minutes and I usually do the dishes while it’s cooking… two birds one stone!
Trusty Chipotle on my way home from Crossfit… again.
I love it when you get a fresh crunchy apple as opposed to the soggy soft gritty ones. This was not a satisfying crunchy one:(
Boo to high carbs and low protein…. also again. Definite lessons learned. I don’t think I would’ve realized what I was doing if I didn’t analyze the data…. however I have to say, despite my macros being wacky I feel really good. Just eating good clean food makes such an amazing difference!
