3 Honest Examples of What I Eat

I’ve been asked lately about what I’ve been eating so here is a quick post to share with you today. You can see that even though I aim for nutrient dense foods, I also intake some inflammatory foods which I think is inevitable in real life.

Monday:

4AM: Chlorella algae powder w/ matcha powder (of green tea leaves). Feeling: Energized.

mysecretchlorella

Matcha (bright green, powerful energizing, brain boosting, antioxidant rich substance). Chlorella (dark green, extremely high chlorophyll making it a potent cellular rejuvinater and energizer).

5:00AM-7:45AM (coaching)

8:00AM – 8:20AM: abbreviated workout (20 mins of sleds)

 9:00AM Scrambled pastured eggs cooked w/ coconut oil. Black beans, a small avocado, some pepperjack cheese, a few bites of raw saurkraut (PROBIOTIC), and boiled chard.
12:30 PM Another round of chlorella/matcha because I was going back to coach.
1:15 PM: Meeting at the studio, food provided by management. Berries, then some of those deli wraps which did have flour, processed meat, cheese, lettuce, and tomato.
3:00PM-6:30 PM (coaching)
6:45 PM amazing chamomile tea from Roy Street coffee
7:30 PM Organic grass fed raw home-made Kefir (PROBIOTIC)

Tuesday:

3:50 AM: Chlorella algae powder w/ matcha.

4:45AM – 7:30AM (coaching)

7:35 AM: Lots of blueberries as a gift from VIP member Deniz at LQA. Also a small peanut butter ball / protein snack that I had on the go walking from one training location to the next.

Blueberries are for antioxidant winners!

8:00AM – 9AM (coaching)
9:45 AM: Wild Alaskan King Salmon 8oz w/ raw saurkraut. (I wanted to have more veggies, but didn’t want to feel rushed during my short break so I just made it easy on myself and had the kraut).
11:00 AM: Americano from Analog Coffee. (nothing added)
12:20 PM: Small coconut nut butter protein ball (another little gift given to me from earlier) as a pre-workout energy source.
12:45 PM: Workout
1:45 PM: 16oz of coconut water (I just love a cold coconut water after the workout, not that I scientifically think it’s the best post-workout. It just makes me feel better than any of the hundred other post-workout drinks I’ve tried)
2:00 PM: Brew DR. Kombucha, “Spiced Apple,” flavor while chillin’ at Cal Anderson Park.

3:00 PM: 24oz of Wild Alaskan King Salmon. Took 20oz of fresh spinach and steamed it/ate it. Also 2 bundles of chard which I boiled and ate that. Only had half an avocado because I was getting so full from the veggies.
5:30 PM – 9PM (coaching)
9:45 PM: Organic grass fed raw home-made Kefir (PROBIOTIC)

Wednesday:

5:40 AM: Chlorella algae powder w/ matcha

6:15 AM: Workout

7:20 AM: Post-workout, I had the Boar’s Head, “Rainier,” sandwhich from the QFC deli in Broadway Market w/ a coconut water of course. Another Brew Dr. Kombucha, this time “Clear Mind” flavor.
8:00 AM – 1:00 PM (coaching)
10:20 AM: During a quick break between coaching HIIT classes, I drank part of store bought Kefir called “Grace Harbor Farms, Plain Kefir” from QFC. This particular brand IS real legitimate kefir, unlike many store brands.
11:40 AM: Drank the other half of the bottle of kefir (Sometimes I only get a few moments to consume anything so I try to make it count, or otherwise I go too many hours without eating probably).
1:45 PM: Pho Than Brothers Pho #1 Large with extra broccoli.
2:30 PM – 4PM (coaching)
5:00 PM: One Chipotle Burrito Bowl with white rice, black beans, fajita vegetables, chicken, pico, salsa verde, corn, 1/2 serving sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce.
7:30PM: Goat Milk Kefir and start preparing for my day tomorrow.

Kefir, a fermented milk beverage with promising health benefits.

Planning ahead for tomorrow

 Tomorrow I’ve planned that I will have more salmon/greens because today wasn’t my best eating day. I’ve taken on more work and helped other trainers at OTF so I notice that when my schedule becomes more demanding, I find it more challenging to consume the top foods. I’m sure you can relate.
Healthy food

I can’t wait to get salmon back in my body.

I already know that I’m going to have my matcha/chlorella around 4:00AM tomorrow. By 9AM, I’ll have some pastured eggs meal similar to that I had on Monday. Then when 3-4PM rolls around, I’ll be preparing my meal of fresh salmon / greens that I’ll have just picked up from the store. I try to go to bed around 8PM because if I get less than 6 hours of sleep, I already know it’s going to be a STRUGGLE to choose healthy foods. Sleep is so crucial for making the right choices.

Tomorrow will be a new day though, with more opportunities for nutrient dense food. It’s not glamorous that I have to wash a bunch of pots and pans to keep up with my cooking, but you just gotta do what you gotta do. I sometimes remind myself what a blessing it is to have access to some of the best nutrition in the world here in my city of Seattle. Why let the opportunity slip by?

How to Quit Harmful Pre-Workout Supplements and Drastically Reduce Coffee by Going Green (Matcha)

I went WAY overboard with caffeinated pre-workout powders, energy drinks, and coffee for a few years in my life.

Since I have a strong background in nutritional supplements, I know my way around the industry and I’ve experienced many products. Any product that contains caffeine is something you’ll feel very quickly and that is a huge selling point.

preowkr

My first ever pre-workout powder that I used was N.O. Xplode. The caffeine boost made my workouts super fun for a period of time. Then I realized that I could just take a scoop of N.O. Xplode before I went to work and then I had energy for my customers. Unfortunately, there was always the inevitable crash. Continue reading

The Insider’s Guide to the Top FAT LOSS Supplements for Healthy Weight Loss

The Fat Loss client comes in many forms, but something so primary connects all of us together.

It is to have felt the urge.

The desire from within making us aware of our imperfections, to be understood in each unique way.

Now there’s something that can help, so empower yourself with knowledge.

Top Supplement List for Fat Loss

Research + Fieldwork  =  The Top Supplements for Fat Loss.

Starting off our list with an ocean treasure…

1. Omega-3 Fish Oil

Fish oil, almost entirely comprised of healthy polyunsaturated fats is a real boost for our biology.

Omega-3's: Must Have for all Weight Loss Programs

Break it down to the body at a cellular level. Now chunk back up and take some Omega-3 Fish Oil. As the fish oil gets absorbed into your body, individual cells can now thrive. Multiply that cell by 100 trillion, and you now have 100 trillion individual cells supporting your every thought, move, and function.

Fish Oil Prevents Heart Disease.

This statement is backed up by pure Fact, as true in scientific research. Healthy heart power is key to fitness!

But the benefits don’t end here…

Fish oil promotes healthy joints and efficient use of carbohydrates for energy.

“But I already take fish oil…”

Take more, see what happens.

Body composition typically improves noticeably for people taking up to 5 grams of fish oil per day.

For guys, body composition changes will give you that wide shoulder look and a more tapered waist — adding to that V-Shape appearance.

Even if no pounds reduce, women with better body composition can improve their hourglass curves in just the right areas.

"Booté" ...a Fish Oil story

Eat fish twice a week, or get yourself an Omega-3 Fish Oil supplement from a well-reputable brand.

This is your life we’re talking about.

2. Whey Protein: The King of the Protein

Out of all protein sources available, no source is as nutrient-dense and versatile as Whey Protein.

Support your Body!

Whether you’re a seriously active person or a gastric-bypass patient, Whey Protein is a natural way to elevate quality of life.

This is why Whey is King:

  • Whey is easy to digest, while red meat is taxing on the body
  • Animal protein and Whey protein both supply essential building blocks for the body, but Whey has less of a digestive price tag than meat.
  • Good digestion promotes good weight loss.
  • Weight loss is supported by the naturally occurring health antibodies found in Whey Protein.
  • Whey Protein Strengthens the Body.

So now you know what whey protein is, you just need to know where Whey Protein is.

  1. Mixed with oatmeal for breakfast
  2. To recover muscles after your workout, the protein shake.
  3. To be fit, you need premium snacks.
  4. A luscious Spring fruit smoothie.

You can do anything you want with Whey Protein, whenever you want.

Whey Protein promotes good ol’ fashion lean muscle.

Thats how You Burn Fat and keep Muscle Tone.

All of this evidence supports Whey Protein as the King of Protein.

3. Green Tea

What happens when naturally occurring caffeine meets super power antioxidant?

The healthiest natural thermogenic fat burner on the market!

  • Antioxidants protect skin, hair, eyes, muscles, and heart from damage.
  • Moderate amount of caffeine gives your metabolism some extra juice.

The taste and aroma of Green Tee is full of memories from my childhood, so I do enjoy a cup. Even so, the capsules are very convenient.

Fat Loss products have in common…

These three supplements are some of the most powerful health boosting products available. All of these supplements have proven qualified health claims, in addition to dozens of credible testimonials.

If you want to improve your health and lose fat simultaneously, make these three supplements a regular part of your daily routine.
