The Gracie Diet: Week One

The first week of the 28 day journey begins tomorrow. Today is “Super Sunday” and the last hurrah of unhealthy eating. Tomorrow begins the Gracie Diet and I could not be more happy to return! I hope you join me and enjoy the journey. In light of the numerous questions I will receive regarding ‘food combinations” I have included a link to help you. It is an interactive link of acceptable food combinations, simply click on the ingredients you wish to use in your recipe and the guide will let you know if they combine chemically! Below you will find my menu for Monday, February 6th, 2012! Keep in mind that in addition to these meals you will want to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Breakfast – Anticipating a grueling morning CrossFit session followed by A.M. Judo I want to be sure I have a healthy breakfast. The Renergy Sandwhich accompanied by a glass of water is just what the doctor ordered!

Lunch – After a busy morning I will need to replenish alot of lost nutrients. I have decided on a vitamin packed salad: Lettuce, Spinach, Carrots, Red Cabbage tossed with a small amount of Olive Oil topped with Walnuts and Grilled Chicken. A tall glass of Coconut Water to go with it!

Dinner -Following a good afternoon nap I need a meal that will prepare me for evening sessions of jiujitsu. I have opted for a quick energy packed smoothie: 2 Raw Banannas, 1/4 cup of Whole Milk, 1 Tablespoon of Cream Cheese, and Crushed Ice: blend until smooth.

Fourth Meal – With training done today I want to be sure to give my body everything it needs to recover during a full nights sleep: Fish (your choice), Steamed Broccoli, and a baked Sweet Potato with Hot Tea (black).
