First things first, winner of the Delight Magazine giveaway is Barbara!  Congrats! I will be emailing you today to get all the necessary info. (Winner chosen using random.org). I haven't done an  WIAW post that has actually included a day of eats for me - so that's what I'm doing today. I'm going to keep it simple and simply show you a day's worth of meals - as always, apologies for the fluorescent lighting and iPhone camera.

6:30am: pre-crossfit BCAAs

8:00am: post-crossfit protein shake: 1/4 cup canned pumpkin, 1 scoop Sunwarriror protein, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk + so.much. cinnamon. (no picture - I forgot about it until it was gone and an empty Blender bottle just isn't that photogenic).



9:30-10am: 2 hard-boiled eggs,  1/2 cup fresh blueberries (I've got a serious blueberry obsession right now) + 1/4 cup pomegranate + 1 heaping Tbsp. of homemade almond butter

3:30: 3 egg whites + coconut oil + small local apple in an empty almond butter jar



7:00: baked cod (cod coated with almond meal) + roasted brussel sprouts. This is definitely a new household staple.

Baked Cod:


almond meal + salt + pepper + dried thyme (mix in a shallow bowl)

dredge cod through mixture and bake for 20 minutes at 425F on a lined baking sheet.


20120807-193708.jpg 7:45: 1 scoop Sunwarrior protein + unsweetened almond milk + 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder + flaked unsweetened coconut (I usually don't eat after dinner but was really hungry so I listened to my body)

Overall, my eats haven't changed too much but I have been focusing on listening to my body - I've been craving more fats and a slightly higher caloric intake than what I'm used to eating. I was a bit concerned about it at first but since I seem to be leaning out a bit (hey, muscle definition!), I'm going with it.

I won't lie and say that part of my brain isn't freaking out - I logically know that listening to my body is the best way to go but that little doubt seems to creep in every so often. Luckily, that doubtful part is small and shrinking every day.

Anyone else feel scared/doubtful of themselves when they change up their diet?
