A Day In The Life: Take 4?

Filed under: General Health, Nutrition

With my recent decrease in dairy intake and other dietary changes, I have had some requests for another Day In The Life installment, showing my personal food intake. One thing I want to remind everyone is that these are example days, not every day is the same. Feel free to use my exact meals, or experiment with your own, as food is one of the great joys of life, eating should be a pleasure, not a mindless feeding.

Wake @ 6 – take puppy out to walk/pee

Breakfast @ 6:30

Omelet

  • 1/2 tbsp Barlean’s coconut oil
  • 5 whole omega-3 eggs
  • 1 cup mixed frozen peppers (red, yellow, green) and onions

  • 4,000 IU vitamin D
  • 500mg Curcumin
  • 1 probiotic

Pre-Training @ 9:45 (while driving to CP)

  • 1 scoop chocolate whey protein

  • 1 tbsp milled flax seed

  • 2 tbsp walnuts
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats

Post-Training Lunch @ 1

Greek Yogurt Special

  • 16oz 2% Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Wyman’s wild frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp almonds and pecans
  • 1 packet Truvia

Late Dinner @ 9ish

Stir-Fry

  • 1 chopped chicken breast
  • 2 cups mixed frozen veggies (broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, onions, red pepper, corn)
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, sprayed with the Misto
  • seasoned to taste

Beverages

  • 8oz water
  • 4oz Red Wine

Supplements

  • 3 ZMA before bed

That is an example day, though half the time at breakfast I replace the oats with 1/2 Ezekiel English muffin with 1/2 tbsp Manitoba Harvest hemp seed butter and 1 tsp organic fruit spread, with a banana. I also eat a lot of Ezekiel wraps after training when we haven’t made chili. I have a bunch of tasty recipes, and I have one with a piece of fruit like an apple or an orange. I also drink a ton of water throughout the day, along with another 2-3 cups of white, green or black tea.

I hope this helps some of you find some good recipes, and see that eating healthy is also delicious!

    Brian do you find the hemp seed butter tasty or just “passable” but willingly included given its stellar nutrient profile?

    On the topic of borage oil, I have read that this tends to be quickly converted to nervonic acid (which is supposedly good for myelin production), but that evening primrose oil, while a less concentrated source of GLA than borage oil, is potentially a better source. As far as you know, is there any truth to this?

    Brian,

    What would you say your average macro breakdown for the day would be? Thanks for the post! Always like getting new ideas.

    Damn, that’s one big breakfast. :)

    I’ll have to try hemp seed butter.

    Curcumin is known to inhibit angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels) needed to grow fat and grow tumors, also some effect on growth of smooth muscle. To my knowledge there is no answer to this question: will curcumin also inhibit the growth of new blood vessels in response to excercise, which might slow or impede the growth of(striated) muscle after exercise?

    What is the calorie count for this particular day?
