16 block day (3x fat)
all meals are ~4 blocks C and P, with 12 blocks F

6am: 1 1/3 cups slow cooked oatmeal, 28g protein powder, almonds

9am: 2 apples, 3oz (weighed after cooked) chicken, almonds

12am: salad, olive oil & vinegar, 1 apple, 3 oz chicken, almonds

4pm: 4-6 cups green beans, 1 apple, 3 oz chicken, almonds
(sometimes, it's another salad in lieu of the green beans)

I'm toying with the idea of having chicken in the morning instead of the protein powder...

Try and drink a glass of water upon rising and with each meal and post WOD.
I try and keep it strict on the paleo approach


Meal 1: 6 egg whites, 1 cup berries, 1 apple, 1 Tbsp. fish oil; multi-vitamins

Meal 2: 3 oz. Grassfed beef or chicken, 3 cups steamed veg., 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Meal 3: Egg protein powder, 1 cup blueberries, 1 Tbsp. fish oil mixed as a shake

Meal 4: Lean protein of some kind, steamed veg. olive oil

Meal 5: Protein powder mixed in water, walnuts, dried apricots.

Breakfast:
A smoothie that probably contains carrots, spinach, two fresh fruits, water, and some kind of berries.
I will also eat some kind of meat/egg/vegetable concoction. Usually it's a scramble with sausage or bacon, eggs, peppers, onions, tomatoes--that kind of thing.

Snacks:
Usually I fill up the rest of the day by snacking on trail mixes, fruits, and veggies. I'll also eat whatever I can get at events, work, or at a friends house. This means that my small snacks often include bread and bread products. But, since they aren't really meals--just keeping the blood sugar up--I don't get too worried.

Lunch:
Usually late afternoon. Usually meat. I never cook meat without a veggie or two or three, though. So, Imight do chicken stir-fry or a pork-chop wrapped in bacon with some onions and peppers, or a meat salad or something.

Dinner:
Just like lunch, but sometimes on rice or pita bread (I need to bulk up a little).

Snacks:
I pretty much always snack on what my roommates are eating, what I can get at the party or the bar, what I grab from 7-11, what I have leftover, or what I've purchased specifically for snacking purposes (frozen grapes, celery and peanut butter, etc.)

Basically, I mix up an endless variety of meats, fruits, and vegetables as my core food. I also snack on whatever I can get because I need the calories. I love to cook, so my healthy food is always good-tasting and fun as well. And, since my shopping budget is paleo, most of my unhealthy food is free!

Do you guys find it easier/better to have a set meal for every breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack for a few months and then change it up a little bit? And in case that made no sense... is it easier to keep yourself eating healthy when you have a set meal to eat.

Yep. My only meal that changes is dinner and all I usualy do is raid the fridge of whatever fresh veggies and meat I have in there and make something like a stir-fry, stew, pan fry, stuffed peppers...whatever.

NO!

I hate eating the same thing, even two days in a row. It's boring and makes me lust for restaraunt-food.
