🤓 These are my average weekly macros (top) and calories (bottom) since my competition. The vertical line shows when I started #rpstrength . My BW was about 117/118 before my water cut. You can see that I increased my calories after the competition. In response, my body weight went up to about 121 before RP (I didn’t weight myself regularly during this period). While my total calories leveled off closer to maintenance (2100-2200) after starting RP, my macro ratios changed significantly and my body weight increased by two pounds. The old me would say, “see?! Carbs make you fat!” The new me says, “carbs make ME perform better in the gym and potentially make ME hold more water.” On my RP Cut 1 I’m eating closer to the calories I was eating up to my last meet (about 1900-2000), but the macro ratios are totally different. It will be interesting to see how my performance is affected.

Just another variation on my lunches: Roast Veg and Pasta! 💁 🍝 My diet is 60% carbs so I eat A LOT of pasta, pumpkin, and fruits! Yes, fruits are high in carbs too!! 🍌🍇 This is roasted pumpkin, on a bed of gluten free pasta, spinach, cherry tomatoes, basil and olive oil. Sprinkled on top is sesame seeds! 💛
Good to eat hot or cold 🎃🌊
Cherry picking season has started in Bacchus Marsh 🍒🍒🍒 For many years I avoided cherries due their height FODMAP (high fructose and polyol) content but now after treatment for SIBO I can eat them again, hooray!! But they also have strawberry picking too, which are low FODMAP 🍓
COMMENT BELOW.....What’s your all time favourite sandwich? If you have to choose between sweet, savoury, fresh or toasted, and what would be the ideal filling? 🥪 🥗 Alsooooo....Have you guys checked out my recipe for this awesome tofu snitzel on the website yet? Literally the perfect thing to put in a sandwhich with some avocado, tomato, vegan cheese, and lettuce. YUM 🍅 🧀 🍗 🥑

Ever have a moment where you just need to take a deep breath? Or you wonder if you are doing the right thing?
After work, I went and grabbed groceries from @traderjoes and literally got all this (some not pictured) for $100 then ventured down to whole foods where I got the honest tea! So good! The above quote came from the cap. These are some of the nutrient dense items I use to meal prep! Low FODMAP foods to get rid of SIBO!
This girl and this gut love some easy smoothie recipes. Since smoothies are blended, they are easier to digest and can give my digestive system a little bit of a break. Thank gawwwwd!
I love @pressedjuicery for not only their delicious juices (that literally taste like dessert-I’m talking to you Coconut Cinnamon), but also for their bottles that I reuse for my own smoothies🎉
What I’m working with today:
-2 handfuls of kale
-1 handful of blues
-2 spoonfuls of @edible.alchemy coconut yogurt
-sprinkle of maca powder
-1 cup H2O
-1 packet of @vitalproteins collagen beauty water *game changer*
Easy peasy and ready to go✌🏽

Liiiiiite för mycket mat för två personer men jag äter gärna rester i ett par dagar 🙂
Oh quinoa, how I love thee. Endless possibilities. Haha seems ironic that this post is a similar recipe to my others. All I did was just tweak my Moroccan-style quinoa recipe to include spinach and courgette. I chucked in too much turmeric by mistake but it was a good mistake because I could actually taste it! Mum had some left over pork tagine so I had some of that with half of what I'd made. This is left overs. Looks like I'm having it for breakfast because I'm out tomorrow during the day and evening! .
Last tea of the day and I am trying this caramel vanilla tea with a salted caramel biscuit!😋
The question on the tea tag means Would you rather be able to read thoughts or be invisible?
(Thank you google!)
My answer is... to be invisible. I really don’t want to know what people think. Some stuffs need to stay private. However i dont mind spying them!😜

I recently listened to the story of one of my favorite authors, who spoke about being addicted to heroine and cocaine for four years of her life. -
Having gone through that, she drew multiple parallels to sugar. The release of dopamine that sugar induces, lighting up multiple reward centers in the 🧠 can be pretty powerful. -
I’d love to be able to stand back and objectively talk about how interesting this. But it’s all too real to me in experience. -
Time and time again, I’ve known the science 🔬 behind what was going on yet eaten X food anyway. In that moment, it’s as if your attention is held hostage. -
I’ve learned and am learning in every aspect of my life that only applied knowledge is power. The only way you’ll ever know your own strength is by acting in the face of fear. -
Trust me on this one. Don’t argue with the screaming voice in your head at 10:30 at night standing in the kitchen. Don’t try to reason. But this time, just this once, choose to hear but not listen. Only then will you gain awareness of your own strength🏋️♂️
Homemade Chai Tea... can you believe this is an assignment for my last elective at @muihealth! Easy and delicious. Plus, you can make a lo-fo version with green tea. Ingredients:
1 stick of cinnamon
1 half of a whole vanilla bean
Small piece of peeled fresh ginger
5 green cardamom pods
3 whole star anise pieces
Add to 2 cup boiling water and simmer for 5 min. Turn off heat, cover and steep for 10 min. Strain out spices. Add 1/2 cup of chai to prepared tea (black is traditional but may be higher in fodmaps). Use milk and sweetener of your choice. I used almond milk and a touch of maple syrup. The aroma is unreal!
Okay, I joke about being a recovering orthorexic, but it is really true! I think it’s being considered an official eating disorder - an obsession with clean eating. But even if it isn’t, it could be considered a form of disordered eating. We are out of town right now, in an AirBNB, and I’ve just come back with groceries from the supermarket to make dinner. I love being able to cook for myself when I am away. What makes me sad is the lack of organics and pastured meats in UK supermarkets. At home I order direct and have my foods delivered. High equality food is a priority for me. But when I am out of town, I am just learning to lighten up. 😆 I found some organic carrots, but the rest of this tray is not. Although most of these veggies are usually low in pesticides. And the old me would have crumpled at the thought of buying non-organic veg. 😱. But it’s made with love, and it’s two bloody days, for goodness sake! You can go ahead and laugh. 😁 I did not buy any meats because I absolutely do not like to buy meats that are not from an ethical source. So, it’s all veg tonight! I did manage fo find some organic tahini in the “specialty” health junkie section, and some Kerrygold butter! 💃🏻 And of course I brought my own salt and coconut oil. I am still a bit crazy. 😜How do you feel about your relationship with healthy eating? Do you follow an 80/20 rule? I am sipping on a Chardonnay (not organic), waiting for my veg, and I will eat it mindfully with gratitude.
Firecracker chickpeas 💥
One of the biggest hurdles with food allergies/intolerances is giving up the meals you love. I could demolish a huge portion of spicy chicken any day, alas can’t tolerate most ingredients in that meal. No chicken, batter, garlic or onion. I have tried many recipes, that just didn’t have that perfect sauce. I am happy to say, I think I created a winner. If only I wrote down portions! •
In a small pan, heat a little oil and ground ginger for about one minute. Add a cup of pineapple juice and 2 tablespoons of liquid aminos (or soy sauce) and bring to a boil. Whisk in a little gluten free flour or cornstarch until it thickens. Heat on low for a couple minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook chickpeas, pineapple and diced red pepper (or any other veggies) on medium high heat until cooked. I added a few dashes of red pepper flakes too. Pour sauce over, top with green onions, and sesame seeds. ENJOY.
Our friends @FODMAPeveryday say, "Practicing fifteen minutes a day each day will serve you, and your health, far more than taking 2 or 3 classes a week or seeing a doctor once a year." We couldn't agree more. Check out the full article here: (http://ow.ly/AwNo30gEsu6)
Annorlunda smaker på kvällens tacotallrik 😃
Fick den stora äran att prova lite nyheter från @santamariasverige som nu har ett "street food-sortiment" riktigt kul att testa då jag troligtvis inte hade gjort det annars, men detta kan rekomenderas. Den söta mangosåsen riktigt gifte sig med den peppriga jerkkryddan, och med min hemmagjorda guacemole, rostad majs och andra grönsaker var det en riktig smakexplosion i munnen 👌
Nu önskar jag er alla en riktigt trevlig helg ✨🌮🍴#alaLollo
