Ive been randomly showing you fairly balanced meals over the last month, just to show you that you can take fairly normal food and put it into quantities and rough ratios that are metabolically good for you you. Your system doesn’t really like being bathed in carb. It wants some, but probably not enough to match your current lust for cakes and donuts!
In promoting the DWF, (daily workout and food) we follow the classic Crossfit 3 day on 1 day off. We work in a car park with just a dumbbell a kettlebell and a skipping room. In the square next door, we have access to some benches that we can step up onto or jump on.
Well, it looked ok, but may I introduce you to a bit of tasteless beef.
So, its 4 block of tasteless beef ( lovingly slow roasted for 3 hours: that was a waste of electricity), 3 blocks of potatoes at 150g, and some nice cabbage with a block of extra butter (between the 2 of us) chucked in, otherwise Kate won’t eat it.
looked ok, tasted of nothing.
This mornings workout was 20 box jumps (or step ups) 20 push ups, 400m run . As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes.

Today is a rest day. We have trained the previous 3 days, so day 4 is rest. You get stronger by resting and recovering from training, not training all the time. You only get stronger during the rest!
I had struggled to knock up the evening meal, as I’d run out of most things. I ended up with an onion, a pepper some garlic , some ginger a spoon of coconut milk, 200g of lamb from last night, gravy from last nights lamb, a tin of tomatoes , some curry powder and some bits of frozen chilli, some powdered coriander, and 3 frozen bits of spinach.
This blog isn’t meant to be a detailed cooking blog, just one that nudges you into the possibility of health eating by doing some basic cooking and following zone diet principle and trying to balance 40% carbs, with 30% protein and 30% fat.
But as a rough guide, fry the onions and pepper, garlic and ginger fry them, add a little bit of water add the curry powder, fry it all, throw in everything else and simmer
I have an ongoing battle with heat in curry so after last times “no heat curry” I thought I’d add a bit of chilli in a game of Chilli Roulette. A game that I had lost, so I had to hunt about to drag these bits out!
Now for future recipes I need a vegetarian to send me in some veggie meals that balance carb, protein and fat ( think 7g protein, 9g carb, 1.5g fat x 4). Email me your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them with a big credit to you. See if you can send me photo of it and you .
In fact any good, healthy meals will be welcome !!!
If you crave something physical, it will probably be a good time to remind yourself that even on a rest day, you need 10,000 steps
