CrossFit Rockwall's "Eat Real" 40-day Challenge

Another nutrition challenge from my awesome affiliate gym, and this will be the first in which I've had a chance to participate. It's called Eat Real, and the point is to eat good, whole, paleo/primal-friendly foods for 40 days and measure the results! Real Food is the name of the game, folks.

That said, I'll be taking the opportunity to blog along with a daily food entry plus whatever other topics come to mind over the course of things. Unfortunately I didn't capture Monday's food in pictures, so you'll just have to take it on faith that I really ate what I'm saying!

Monday 6/21:
An odd day, I ended up IFing (that's Intermittent Fasting) from dinner the previous night until dinner this night. For dinner, I had:

  • a large sweet potato, baked, with butter from pastured (grass-fed) cows and cinnamon
  • a ribeye steak, brushed with olive oil and grilled (spices too, of course)
  • a BEAT salad - 4 pieces of bacon (cooked in coconut butter), 1 large avocado, 2 eggs (cage-free DHA), 1 tomato
  • a handful of organic blueberries for dessert (probably 1/3 cup)

Tuesday 6/22:

  • an apple, used to scoop almond butter
  • 1/2 of a green bell pepper, a nice chunk of onion, and 5 eggs scrambled in the leftover bacon grease and coconut butter from the previous night


  • one zucchini-squash, sliced thin and cooked in some awesome (and silly-expensive) cookware that uses low heat and keeps veggies from going mush while still cooking relatively quickly, plus spices
  • a whole bunch of grilled asparagus (double what's in the picture)
  • two ribeyes (they had a sale!) off the grill. I only meant to eat one, but hey...
  • 1/4 cup organic blueberries
  • 7 smallish-medium organic strawberries

More to come as the challenge continues!
