I start with sharing my typical dinner.
490 grams baby potatoes
81 grams courgettes
39 grams asparagus
3 tablespoons rapeseed oil
Salt, peper, paprika and chilli
Mix it together, throw a salmon fillet (119 grams) on top and into the oven for approximately 30 mins (200 degrees maybe?).
Go stretch for 25 minutes and for the remaining 5-10 minutes put some broccoli (147 grams) on top.
Enjoy!

Normally quite healthy but opening up with a great start today #healthyliving - 1x 12" pizza and bacon-loaded fries washed down with a monster ultra haha.

Using 10.5 miler this morning and circuits + ROMWOD this evening as the excuse.

Yesterday dinner:
Fajitas with peppers, lettuce, guacamole. Chicken replaced by Bare Naked roast strips, the best chicken replacement out there in my opinion.

Breakfast this morning:
Weetabix
Banana, apple and kiwi
Half a malt loaf
Spirulina smoothie with vanilla Alpro yoghurt (grim but experimenting with algae)

Fasted until 12:00. “Breakfast” now after a fartlek run:
30 grams protein
35 grams vitargo
72 grams blueberries
118 grams strawberries
1 banana
2 tablespoon almond butter
This is usually my afternoon pre workout meal. Usually for my late breakfast/lunch I eat my special meal that I meal prep for 6-7 portions. I am making a batch in a couple of hours and will share it you all as I think it’s super delicious, nutritious and easy to make in the morning once you cooked the base. It will make sense later.

Tried BeyondMeat today. Some new health kitchen has opened up nearby on Uber Eats. Had a "Beyond Burger" on sourdough bread with some "Green Grenade" shake full of kale and spinach and the like.

I'm not too good at diet, too many years living in Asia mean I practically live off curries with Paratha breads, Pad Thai, homemade Filipino pork recipes I learnt off my Filipino housemates in one job etc etc. But for the last few weeks before ROP I'm getting a grip of myself a bit to make sure I'm firing on all cylinders.

My typical mornings’ post work out meal. I have been eating this for weeks.

So for the “base” you need:

500 gr chestnut mushrooms
650 gr white mushrooms
4 sweet pointed peppers
1-2 onions
2 cans (or 500 gr fresh tomatoes) of chopped tomatoes
Tomato puree
Paprika (3-4 tablespoons)
Salt, pepper, chilli and oil (3 tablespoons)

  1. Wash and cut the mushrooms, peppers first and place them into separate bowls.
  2. Cut the onions and fry them on the oil. When almost fried pull it off the hob and season it with paprika. Mix it well for a few seconds. Paprika burns easily so that’s why you pull it off. Pour a bit off water on top, stir it well again and put it back on the hob
  3. Add the mushrooms and the seasonings and cover the stockpot until they are softish. Pro tip: while it’s cooking wash the dishes.
  4. Add the mushrooms and the seasonings and cover the stockpot until they are softish. Pro tip: while it’s cooking wash the dishes.
  5. Add the peppers.
  6. Once everything is nice and soft add the 2 cans of chopped tomatoes and a bit of tomato puree depending on how watery it is still. It should be saucy but not to runny.

As you noticed this base takes a bit of a time to make (40 mins?) so that is why I batch cook it. Once it’s ready put it into 6 -preferably- glass food containers to make sure they stay fresh for 6 days. A portion is around 400-430 grams.



When you ready to eat it, pour it out into a frying pan, add a handful of spinach and cook it together. Then I add 3 slightly beaten eggs on top and fry it. I serve it with an avocado and parsley on top.

For extra calories and protein I make 4 square toasts out 4 slices of wholemeal rye bread and 3 slices of cheese.

Best eaten in the morning after your workout. Sometimes I add courgettes with the spinach.

Home made dhal and chapatis tonight. Living in Sri Lanka had some advantages. I was shocked when I watched The Game Changers and found out a cup of lentils has the same protein as a steak, so even more excuse to cook it since then!

Well this is not bad either:
Two cauliflower cheese burgers (Lidl) with halloumi fries & onion and garlic dip.
Burgers have:
Vegan coleslaw, reduced fat hummus, mixed leaf salad, reduced fat cheese, red onions and gherkins (proper ones from the Polish shop).

Char sui style pork with rice and choi sum. Nowhere near as good as what I had in Singapore a few years back, but it’s not bad and it’s reasonably healthy...
