Hey so ive been really trying to clean up my eating lately sticking to getting most of my calories from protein and good fats while keeping the carbs to <40g.

Breakfast:
protein shake
or
egg whites/omellete

snack

lunch:
meats(tuna,salmon,chicken,turkey,steak)
and mixed greens

snack

dinner is same as lunch except different meat

snack

as you can see by what im eating its incredibly boring, so i was wondering if anyone has a favorite clean meal post it up and ill make it for dinner tmw. im basically bored outa my skull with meat and salad. snacks are usually a scoop of whey and water or some celery and nuts.

damn bro, that no food at all. i like my diet simple. It consist of chicken, steak, eggs, whey, oats, rice, broccoli, almonds and I am happy


#3

scoop of vanilla protein powder mixed with a couple tablespoons of coconut oil

you could always try whole eggs. The fats won’t kill you.

Also, what do your “snacks” look like?


#5

Yeah, tell us exactly what you’re eating, even for snacks. Also, are you trying to add or cut? I can suggest tons of lovely meals for both :smiley:

Get yourself a crock pot/slow cooker & learn to make some carne asada!

That’s an awfully low amount of carbs. A lot of people tend to lose energy and suffer in the gym when they eat so few carbs. Maybe you’re fine like that, but you might want to consider getting some more in your diet. Oatmeal or quinoa at breakfast can help a lot, and beans are really really slow burning carbs as well. Of course, fruits and veggies are the best way to get healthy carbs.

My absolute favorite meal right now is as follows:

1.5 lbs of 90% lean ground sirloin
large handful of spinach leaves
Mild salsa to taste

Mix it all together and it’s fucking delicious.

I don’t know why, but I have been having MAD cravings for oatmeal. Old fashioned slow cooked, not that instant crap. I don’t know why, maybe it’s the chewy texture. I have been tinkering with some old Italian recipes going back to my roots. A fig or piece of melon with prosciutto wrapped around it. Covering some plain chicken breasts with some marinara sauce. Damn this reminds me how hungry I am.
