WIAW: Plain and Simple!

This WIAW should actually be called...

What I ate before Monday!

Why? Because...

We are currently testing out a new pre-competition diet that would leave me with no added flavour to play around with! (Insert Violin music here lol)

So let's just say...

Things have been plain and simple over at my place for the past few days!

But hey...

You gotta do whatch'ya gotta do! (It's the name of the game!)

Plus....

I'm excited to see the results (hoping there is some of course lol) after this cycle has ended!

So without FUrther ado...

Here's a peek into what I've been eating since my last WIAW! (So you'll find here a combination of both old and new diet cycle goodies!)

Burnbrae Farms Bowl of Egg Whites
Sliced Cucumbers.
Salmon and Brussel Sprouts
Recipes for this can be found here
More Egg Whites topped with Vanilla Stevia, Cinnamon, Salt, Pepper and Almonds.

Dim Sum with the family!
Ha just kidding! I ate before going :)
Heart shaped Tuna Steak.
Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Caps.
Recipe can be found here
Dinner.
Recipe for Tuna Steak can be found here
Mahi Mahi with Oven Broiled Broccoli

~Recipe for Mahi Mahi! (which is a new fish I recently tried!)

Ingredients:

Salt
Pepper
Splash of Olive Oil
Lemon Wedge

Easy right?! Yep!

Instructions:

Pre-heat your oven to broil at 385F
Place your fish on an oven safe pan
Spray a touch of Olive Oil to coat the Mahi Mahi
Salt and pepper to your own liking
Put your fish in the oven
Cook for about 15 minutes (or until fish because flaky and toasted on top)
Remove from oven and top with Lemon wedge (feel free to squeeze the juices on top!)

Enjoy!

Oh and one last thing...

This is what Teddy ate! (At least he has good taste!)

Yes, I'm still wearing them!

Thank you, once again Jenn, for giving us this FUn way to share our eats!

    Are you carb cycling? I see no carbs but protein and fats (almonds, cheese).

    If so, how long do you do it for? Thanks!! :)

    Please share with the no spice/seasoning will work!

    1. The length of time I carb cycle varies as I go along. Everyone's metabolism is so different that carb cycling is different for each person as we all react differently to it :)

      I'll be sure to update on my progress!

  4. Seriously... you should write a pre-competition cookbook. I am not kidding. By far, you have the most innovative recipes. It's not just plain tilapia and asparagus! Amazing eats. :)

  5. I must admit that I acutally prefer plain and simple foods. Too often we focus on adding too much stuff to the natural food. Am I crazy?

  8. I always think the second day is the most difficult - I'm so proud of myself on day 1, and then it's a chore :-).

    Hope it pays off!

  18. I have some shoes that look similar to those (the new rescue dog). And yes, I'm still wearing mine too.

    Simple is good. I don't really ever change my eating plan, except when I went vegetarian then vegan, but I didn't find that hard.

    1. Simple is good!

      It's been interesting to read about your transition from being a vegetarian to vegan :)

  19. The tuna and mushroomw look so good. Did you know that can tune a car, but you can't tuna fish. LOL...... :)

    And looks like teddy had the best meal.

  20. Those brussel sprouts and mushrooms look darn good! Yes, the first day of a new program is always the most difficult! Right now, I am trying to give up Diet Coke. But that is tough every day - not just day one :0

    ReplyDelete
  21. It may be simple, but it all looks yummy. I need to venture out on my fish cooking more...

    Like someone else mentioned, day 2 is hardest for me. Day 1 is all about how awesome everything is. Day 2 is all about "I miss..." Luckily, I'm not training for a competition, so I can mostly follow the "all things in moderation" plan. ;o)
