These past few weeks I've been playing around with my macros to see how I feel the best, aiming for 40% fat, 30-40% carb, and 20-30% protein. I've been used to eating much lower carb for so long that it takes such a conscious effort to get that amount of carb in! Generally I plan my week, plug it into My Fitness Pal for an estimate, then tweak from there. I'm still focusing on low-FODMAP carbs, as I definitely do better on those. This week I planned everything out and found that I needed to add in a snack of frozen pineapple, white rice to my soup, and use coconut water in my smoothies to get to my carb goal!! So those things didn't quite make it into the picture :)
Breakfast: "Chocolate Covered Strawberry" Shake // 1 scoop PureWOD Chocolate Build + 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides + 5 oz strawberries + 8 oz coconut water + 1 tbsp cocoa + 1 tsp maca + 1 tsp L Glutamine
Snack: Kitchfix Grain-Free Granola
Lunch: Burrito Bowl // seasoned ground beef + cauliflower rice + roasted tomatoes and zucchini + caramelized onion and bell pepper // In short, I roasted the chopped zucchini and tomatoes with some oil in the oven while I sautéed the onion and bell pepper in one skillet and the cauli rice in another skillet on the stovetop. Then after transferring the cauli rice to my pyrex dishes, I cooked the ground beef in the same pan!
Snack: 1 cup frozen pineapple tidbits
Dinner: Creamy Lemon Kale Chicken Soup with Broth-Cooked White Rice // I LOVE this recipe by AIP Lifestyle and come back to it time and time again! This time I made it in the Instant Pot. I cooked the chicken first (simply salted the whole bird, placed it in the pot with nothing else, and cooked at high pressure for 30 minutes. It came out SO tender!!), then while that was cooling so that I could pull the meat off, I put everything else for the soup in the IP and cooked at high pressure for 15 minutes. I cooked the rice on the stovetop at the same time. Done!
Have a great week!!
