Here we go!
I am officially starting the nutrition portion of Crossfit and Petranek. Not that my diet is so horrible as it is now. But I think there are a lot of places that can be improved such as timing in between meals, portions and protein/carb/fat balance. Also as it says in the Success Journal and as I have seen evidence of in class - the best CrossFitters are the ones that follow at least a somewhat Zone-esque diet plan.
I went out and did some grocery shopping last night and plan to do a little more tonight (TJ’s was closed early due to Easter). And i started this morning at the most logical place, breakfast. Historically, breakfast has been at most an after thought once I get to work if I am starving or else I eat no breakfast at all.
I refuse to get up early enough on weekdays to make myself a full breakfast so i decided that shakes are going to be the best way to go for this meal.
Here is what I had this morning:
8:00am - 4 blocks
1 scoop (28g) - Whole Foods Vanilla Soy Protien Powder - 4p
1/2 Cantaloupe - 2c
1 Orange - 2c
~ 12 Almonds - 4f
That was pretty good. I tasted the vanilla flavor of the protein powder. I think that once I use up all of this container (about 15 more shakes) I am gonna try and find one that does not have any flavor.
I plan to have a 2 block snack at 11am:
2 String Cheeses (1oz each) - 2p
1 Apple - 2c
1 tsp - Peanut Butter - 2f
I will let you know how that goes.
