A Week of Meals, in Pictures

Last week while eating my brussels sprouts and pulled beef out of a tupperware container in the corner at the shop someone said to me, “You don’t actually eat like that all the time, do you?” Well, all is an absolute term, but yes, for the most part, I do, and I think you can too.

I take the foundation of the CrossFit pyramid very, very seriously. It’s Nutrition. The way we eat can make us sick or enable us to be fit, it can lay the foundation for the onset of disease later in life, or aide in its prevention.

Commitment to this way of eating will be a lifelong endeavor. When I describe it to some, they are taken aback and shocked – the elimination of so many foods, the time, the effort, the constraint, the work. It’s a method that combines quality and quantity of food and requires varying amounts of discipline, all in the name of health, performance, and longevity. It’s also a very enjoyable way to eat, seriously.

Upon hearing about (or seeing) the way I eat, many people think one or a few of the following things:

– It must be ridiculously hard
– I must be hungry all the time
– The food can’t be any good
– I’m crazy
– Poor Eric

Without describing the method of how I eat and why (yet) I’m going to take this week and post EVERYTHING I eat from Monday through Sunday. I’ll also log my prep time. That will total 21 meals and 7 snacks and a lot of coffee.

On Monday, we’ll take a survey of whether or not the week of meals posted was something you would possibly eat. Remember, I said I also find this way of eating very enjoyable.  I actually want to eat this way. Let’s see what you think.

I’ll take next week to describe the method to the quest for everlasting life.

Here we go.
