Food: November 11, 2015
Another day of waking up in a good mood after another great night of sleep, according to my FitBit Surge. Clearly taking a week off from business travel has done wonders for my stress levels.
The good news is my body has returned to a ketogenic state and I am burning my body fat. What put me back into ketosis? Probably not eating any processed food with no sugar or grains, doing intermittent fasting and compressing my eating down to about a 5 hour window, and completing a rigorous workout featuring heavy (for me) deadlifts.
One of the great benefits for me of being home is it allows me prepare my own food. Tonight I made a great side dish, cauliflower and zucchini fried rice. I used my Vitamix to blend cauliflower into “rice” and cut up some zucchini and half an onion. One trick is to use cheese cloth to squeeze as much water out of the cauliflower a possible. I sauteed all of this in bacon drippings with salt, pepper and then further seasoned with coconut aminos (kinda like soy sauce). Then I spread it all out on a baking sheet and put under the broiler until brown and crispy. This was absolutely delicious!
I feel great as we head past hump day and, as always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
