WIAW Low Carb Day

I have another low carb What I ate Wednesday for you! I've changed my schedule again a little and I'm eating 6 meals a day instead of my typical 7, which seems to be helping on the carb cycle because it allows for bigger portions.







M1: 3oz yam (hash brown style) and 5 egg whites. I just scrambled this all together with onion and jalapeno. 
M2: Exactly the same as meal 1. Good thing I love it!
M3: 5oz grilled chicken with broccoli and cauliflower.
M4: Turkey Zucchini burger with cauliflower and broccoli. 
M5: 5oz turkey with lettuce, tomato, 1oz avocado and tapatio. 
M6: Natalie Hodson frozen egg whites. I FINALLY made this and it is so awesome! I just blended 5 pasteurized egg whites with 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder, cinnamon, and 1.5 tbsp almond butter. You can then put the mixture into muffin tins and then freeze, but  I just put it in a small bowl and froze for an hour then mixed and let it freeze for another hour. Love it.

I will also add, week 2 of carb cycling has been much, much easier than the first week. I feel like my body has adapted quite a bit and my energy levels are pretty much back to normal and workouts have been great. If you are struggling, try to stick with it because it does get better!

  3. Natalie's egg whites is what I eat almost every night! Sometimes, when my fat macros are too close to going over I will put PB2 basically for the nutty flavor! SO YUMMY!

    1. Just grate the yams on a cheese grater and then cook like you would regular hash browns! I just spray a little pam in the bottom of a pan and cook on low until crispy. They will get a little crispier if you use a bit of olive oil.

    1. Well, you clearly don't closely follow my blog because if you did you would know I don't always eat this amount of calories.

  11. Do you have the turkey zucchini burger recipe? Your blog rocks! I loved the video about being scared of the weight room. That was me the other night. I went there, was so timid. Wasn't sure where any of the machines were....yikes. I will try to be braver! :)

  12. I know this is about a year and a half late, but THANK YOU. I have done phase 1 and 2 over and over again and finally ventured into phase 3. I just finished my third low carb day and today I woke up SO EXCITED that today is a high carb day. I am glad week two gets better. I felt like I was dragging in my workouts and I had a headache in the evening. Anyways, thanks for the food tips. I appreciate the time you put into this blog. It really is helpful!!!
