5 days until it’s go time! So here is what I am fueling on this week and why.

Monday: 3-24-14

Breakfast:
Super Mo Shake

Lunch:
Spinach & Kale Salad
Artichoke hearts
shredded beets
sliced strawberries
1 can Wild Planet Sardines in Olive Oil
1Tbsp Upgraded Brain Octane (I use this a “salad dressing”, it enhances the flavors of food. So good!)
Pink Himalayan Salt
1 piece 80% dark chocolate

Snack:
Wellโ€ฆ 2 pieces dark chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚

Dinner:
Chicken Salad with Hummus from True Foods Kitchen (this is a Dr. Andrew Weil inspired restaurant. Another VERY good/clean food spot in Dallas).

Tuesday

Breakfast:
Super Mo Shake

11:30:
Took a Vespa Power to keep me in fat burning mode while I shoot “how to” videos for www.livestrong.com

Lunch:
5oz grilled chicken
1 cup couscous w/feta & spinach
2 dolma wraps (these little gems are delicious)
handful black kalamata olives (for some good fats)

Dinner:
Grilled chicken salad w/dates (got this from Origin Kitchen. Super clean food!)
2 bacon wrapped quail legs (needed a little fat)

Wednesday: 3-26-14 TRAVEL DAY
**Started today with 5 drops Oil of Oregano in 20oz of water** Oil of Oregano is very good for boosting immune function and you need this when flying on a congested plane.
***Travel Tip** Anytime you fly you get dehydrated from time spent in a pressurized cabin. I drink 24-30oz of water on the plane with a little sea salt added. The salt enhances water absorption

Breakfast: **Started today with 5 drops Oil of Oregano in 4oz of water**
Spinach & Egg Scramble
1 cup sweet potato/pumpkin seed hash

Lunch: During the flight to San Diego
1 Epic Bison Bar . Why this bar? Click on the bar and you will see Bison, Turkey, & Beef bars. This company created basically a “better beef jerky” that is sourced from grass-fed animals. It’s a great source of protein when traveling, especially in airports & planes, because airplane/airport proteins are not good quality
1 Packet Artisana Cacao Bliss . Why this? Coconut butter is a great source of healthy medium chain triglycerides (a type of fat) that acts like a carbohydrate in your body. It provides great nutrition and stable energy. Coconut oil is also anti-microbial & anti-bacterial, again, perfect for travel.
2 squares of 80% dark chocolate w/expresso beans. Why this? Why the hell not?

Dinner:
Ahi Tuna Tartar
Spinach Salad
3 slices of a veggie pizza

Thursday: 3-27-14

Breakfast:
Spinach & egg scramble
1 large banana
1 cup coffee w/almond milk

Poached Salmon on 2 pieces sourdough bread

Shrimp Pad Thai
Seaweed Salad

1/2 avocado
2 pieces sourdough bread
Almond milk latte

Snack:
1 serving dark chocolate
1 Vespa Power

Dinner: Ate at 5:30 to allow for plenty of time to digest
5oz filet (this is LOADED with iron which helps increase oxygen transport to working muscles)
1 large sweet potato no skin. Topped with 1Tbsp coconut oil (coconut oil aids in the absorption of nutrients)
1 cup roasted asparagus & brussels sprouts (locally grown here in So Cal, had to eat these ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

RACE DAY!!
