Keto Turkey dinner with all of the fixings. I love this meal and will come up with any excuse at all to eat it!
Well that’s another whirlwind day of competing in the books! I had an amazing time competing on home turf in the INBA Auckland Classic. Came away with two seconds and a third! One of the things I love about this sport is there is always so much to learn about yourself and new goals to be set and achieved. I’m looking forward to a solid off season and some time to grow. #inbaauckland #inbanz
Saturday mornings are my favorite part of the week. I wake up naturally (no alarm!) by 5:30am, and head downstairs. From the kitchen, I start the coffee, catch up on YouTube videos, and -if I’m lucky- make hardest decision I plan to make for the day: where and how far to run. ✌🏻

This was a beast! I rarely actually program my workouts. I usually just go in and do a really intuitive workout, but I have some real body composition goals right now, so I’m going to try and stay focused on my weaknesses. This workout was targeting the glute/hamstring tie in, “underbutt”. I am cursed with a long Asian butt and all my fat is stored on my inner thighs and backs of my legs. As my body fat percentage goes down, I know I’ll see more definition, but gotta get the muscles built too. This may have been a mistake since my Crossfit workout has over 100 wall balls, kettlebell swings, burpees, and 200 double unders tomorrow, and I am playing tennis for 2 hours after that. We shall see if my legs hold up.

One of my favourite things about competing as a ketogenic athlete is my refeed pizza the night before. The base on this one is a new recipe and was inspired by similar ones done by @keto.connect
I used a mix of half tuna and half ground pork rinds, with nutritional yeast and one egg. It’s so yum!!!
I think we have all associated the word "diet" as a way of eating that restricts the volume of food we eat and the type of food that we eat.
In the last few months, I've began incorporating a minimally processed, whole foods approach to my diet in attempt to achieve as much nourishment through nutrient dense foods as possible.
Two things happened.
The first, I began avoiding easy-to-grab meals like protein bars and fat bombs for solid food with whole proteins and whole fats. The second, I realized that hitting nutrition goals allows me to eat a volumous amount of food (a good thing) while naturally remaining in a calorie deficit (also a good thing).
I quickly found this method of eating very satisfying because a whole meal is far more satisfying and satiating than a protein bar and small fat bomb. This approach has shifted some of my time in the gym to time in the kitchen. While many people today won't appreciate that, the skills I've been learning in the kitchen have been highly rewarding and allows me to continue growing a passion for cooking and nutrition.
This is my breakfast on a Thursday morning, and I had a lot more delicious food to look forward to today. 😊
