Clean eating for gains
It’s a buzz phrase that’s very old…and it’s open to interpretation. What’s clean exactly? What constitutes a clean
food? We know our modern environment is loaded with toxins of all kinds. Our produce supply is high in pesticides
and the meat supply is loaded with hormones and chemicals. So how do you actually find CLEAN animal based
proteins for your muscle building? There are a few questions I answer to qualify the protein.
1 – Is it compatible with my blood type? (I’ll get into the blood type philosophy in the future) 2. If it’s a fish
is it highly susceptible to Mercury contamination (this eliminates Tuna for me). 3. If it’s a meat is it organic, pasture
raised, fed corn, soy. Bison and cows are grazers. So Ideally, you want pasture raised beef from a bison or cow.
You want to avoid soy and corn as much as possible. Corn is hard on digestion and soy messes with hormones.
These 3 meal recipes are based on things I eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner often. And can be made in bulk. 3 high protein, low carb meals.
Breakfast – Salmon omelette
This right here is super solid. Low calorie and high protein if you’re keto. (I’m not so I eat oatmeal too).
For the salmon I take half a can of Wild Planet Sockeye Salmon
Then I take 2 Vital farm pasture raised eggs (one full egg, one yoke removed)
Put the eggs into a blender, then add 2-3 oz of unsweetened coconut milk (good MCT content) and blend it.
Pour contents into a skillet or cast iron pan and let cook flat. Once cooked, sprinkle parsley, pepper, anything
else you want to add to taste. Add salmon contents then fold the omelette over.
Now you have an omelette with:
- 30g of protein
- Under 500 calories
- Loaded with MCT, Omega 3s.
Lunch – Ramen Seafood Bowls
This is something I eat often after a workout. As opposed to large whey/milk protein shake that upsets my
digestive system. This provides some carbs and protein for growth and recovery. In a large glass pyrex you can
make a few day’s worth. (Glass to avoid BPH and plastic leeching).
These are the packs of Ramen I use – Lotus Foods Purple Potato and Brown Rice Ramen
Mix these up and store for a few days worth of good lunches.
1 serving = 8oz bowl
- 560 calories
- 36g of protein
- Omega 3s
Dinner – Bison Beef Stroganoff
This one is powerful. Bison beef is the best beef available in my opinion. It’s low in fat, and Bison are a natural born
animal. (Cows are hybrids cultivated for beef). This is protein packed. You need 1lb of ground Bison which can be
gotten from Buy Ranch Direct
Also from here : Tender Bison
For the stroganoff … I use Sam Mill’s Gluten Free Stroganoff
For milk I use the coconut milk previously mentioned in replacement of dairy milk.
I’ve just never bought into the logic of using dairy if you’re not a baby. This meal packs a punch with plenty of
protein and fat content for growth.
These meals don’t necessarily sound appetizing. But the point is results . It’s important to know your own body’s
chemistry and what kind of foods you can tolerate and what kinds you can’t. I don’t tolerate chicken well for
example. I also start to make mucus when I eat dairy.
I think these are a good medium.
These meals do get the job done.
