07 Feb Sylvia’s Nutrition Guide
… and what she eats in the run of a day
Food is fuel for me. I am pretty focused on a strict nutrition plan for proper energy, recovery and muscle growth. I LOVE to cook and bake. I am always trying new recipes that cater to a low sugar, gluten free eating plan. Sundays and Wednesdays are my days I do meal prep, as it makes it easier to always be prepared with healthy, nourishing food.
I start my day off with a higher protein breakfast as it prevents my adrenals from pumping out extra cortisol and helps to keep my blood sugar balanced throughout the day. I tend to eat my carbohydrates after my workouts or at night, as it helps restore my muscles from my workouts and gives my body the nutrients it needs for a restful sleep.
Before breakfast :
Ginger Shot – lemon juice and ginger for boosting digestive system and anti inflammatory benefit
COFFEE,COFFEE,COFFEE – best enjoyed in bed on Sunday mornings.
Animal-based protein (normally 2 free run eggs ), stir-fry with vegetables, Avocado, Coconut oil
On the run – Green smoothie using Vega protein powder, avocado, coconut oil or almond butter and spinach
Handful of trail-mix (almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut shreds)
Homemade Chia pudding using coconut/almond milks
Animal-based protein or Beans/Quinoa, dark leafy green salad, with nut/seed oil as dressing
Protein smoothie using Vega protein powder with almond/coconut milk, flaxseed and apple or berries
