Lunch/post wod meal.

This past Sunday I had a little get together/bbq and found myself talking food with none other than Diso and Jefferson. We were specifically speaking about how we are able to eat the way we do CONSISTENTLY.  Even amidst the very non-paleo, yet highly festive food items that found their way over to my house, the three of us stuck with grilled meats, guacamole and cider.  I should also preface this by stating, the lean, athletic Jefferson we all know today, was a very different person a year ago.  Jeff is a rare case in that he did EXACTLY what I told him to do, which brings me back to the conversation as it went something like this…..

Diso:  “Isn’t eating this way easy!”
Jeff: “It’s so easy!  All you have to do is throw out all the bad shit, buy good shit, and eat it!”

Brilliant!  Soon after that epiphany, it dawned on us that in all the nutrition challenges we have done, we have never really taken a hard stance on this very crucial first and important step.  A couple days ago, Diso outlined the very clear parameters for this lifestyle change, and the simplest way to affect the daily choices we make is to throw out the bad shit!  It’s that simple!  For those of you with the stomach to partake in the next 30 days, I challenge you to rummage through your pantries, freezers, and fridges and throw out all grains, processed sugar, and dairy.  Now read the labels for the stuff you have left and, well, if it has a label, just throw it out.  I imagine that for some, you’d literally have nothing left, and that’s GOOD!

  Now all that’s left to do is fill your fridge with quality meats, vegetables, a little fruit, and good fats.  In an instant you have changed your reality thereby changing your daily choices that will develop into sustainable long term habits!  The importance of #15 in yesterday’s post cannot be emphasized enough.   Food prepared at home should be the rule.  I’m lucky.  The above photo is that of my lunch nearly every day.

  My other two meals in the day look very similar.  We recognize that simple isn’t always easy, but what have you got to lose?  At the very least, see what the next 30 days brings with a “NO SHIT IN MY HOUSE” rule.  Post experiences all month long as we gear up for Regionals!
