Ha! Thats the idea.

Yesterday began the bratwurst weekend. Bratwurst, everything you could hope it would be.

4 eggs, coffee with whey
2 1/2 pound hamburgers, 5 bratwurst, diced onion, tomato, lettuce, cheese

Dinner: Grilled Salmon, Saigon Shrimp, and Cauliflower Mash

Salmon was coated with olive oil and garlic, then grilled until done but still juicy.

Saigon Shrimp:
1 pound raw shrimp
salt, pepper, cayenne, ginger, crushed red pepper to taste
1.5 tsp stevia
1-2 tbsp soy sauce

Mix it all together and cook in a skillet until done. There's a more official recipe somewhere, but I was too tired last night to dig it up, and this was pretty good.

Do you get your bratwurst from a local sausage company or from the store?

Depends on the day. I try to get them from a local deli, but sometimes I end up just getting a few packs from the store. These latest are from the deli though, definitely worth the extra $.50 a pound.


Pretty moderate day today.

Coffee w/2 scoops whey
Breast/wing from a whole chicken, skin on
Smoothie with 1 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup blueberries, 2 scoops whey, 1/4 cup heavy cream

Dinner: Bratwurst Stew - Recipe calls for 1 pound of bratwurst. Next time I am using 3. Other than that, pretty damn good.

1 pound bratwurst, pre-cooked
4 cups shredded cabbage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 rutabaga, peeled and diced
32 oz chicken stock
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp celery seed
salt
pepper

Optional - swiss or jarlsberg cheese to top

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, turn on low, and let sit for 6-7 hours.

So, I'm up 3 pounds since beginning this wild ride, my lifts and recovery have been improving. I'll be adding some conditioning of my off days, nothing major, but it couldn't hurt to get some work in for my heart and lungs. We'll see how this affects my calorie needs.

Coffee w/ 2 scoops whey
3 eggs with green chili, mushrooms, and cheese
6 eggs with green chili, mushrooms, and cheese
Pizza on a coconut flour tortilla

Dinner : Carne Asada and fajita veggies - Consumed 2/3 of this
3 thinly sliced beef
2 onions
2 bell peppers
Guacamole
cheese
sour cream

This really only differs from fajitas in the spices. More salt, pepper, and some oregano on the meat, no cumin. Had hoped to make chili rellenos, but the chilies at the store looked sub par. Next time!

That's really good news. Any idea where you calorie intake is at on the average?

I'm up close to 5000 on my normal days. Cheat days break into the 8k range, and the back off days are as low as 3000.

I don't frequently list incidentals here, but there's around 4 oz of almonds, bits of cheese and meat, pickles, the occasional chicken leg that finds its way into my stomach throughout the day. There's also the butter and olive oil for cooking.

On a related note, my head nearly exploded today whilst trying to explain to someone that vegetable oil was NOT healthier because it comes from veggies. There's no winning some of these.

Lol, then tonight's dinner is perfect for you! I have to have about 60% of my meals with a cooking/prep time of under 30 minutes or I run out of time to enjoy eating them later.

Good day for food today for the most part. Had some almond butter mixed with whey earlier, pretty good, and hopefully won't impact me as hard as the peanut butter does. Dinner was lower in fat, so I got hit with MASSIVE cravings an hour later, and this did the trick.

Coffee w/ 2 scoops whey
6 eggs, 1/3 pound of bacon
Wraps with 1 chicken breast with skin on, 4 coconut flour tortillas, some pepperoni, paleo mayo and lots of spinach
Smoothie with 2 cups mixed berries, 2 scoops whey, 1/4 cup heavy cream

Dinner: "Cobb" Salad. Its in quotes because it isn't officially a cobb salad, but its close enough for government work.
-Serves 3, I like the left overs for lunch if I can get to them before my girlfriend does.

1 large ham steak
3 chicken breasts
4 strips thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/3 cup feta cheese
1 avocado - was out of these tonight
3 tbsp sunflower seed
3 heads lettuce
oil and vinegar for dressing

Pan fry the ham steak, toss chicken breasts on a george foreman sort of grill, cook the bacon, chop everything, and serve. The only problem tonight was I was out of avocado, which lead to not enough fat. Other than that, pretty darn good food today. Made fresh tortillas today as well, so of course I had to "test" several at lunch.
