how to find your trigger foods

workout Yesterday was a short and sweet workout. We worked on a new #plankworkout, more of a time challenge and it took us under 10 minutes to do!  Plus it is a full body plank workout style routine.

beet juice

We started our morning with a beet juice (juice was beets, apples, romaine, kale, cucumber, carrots).

egg breakfast salad

Later on we enjoyed some eggs with mixed lettuce, leftover ground beef, and coconut oil.

flatbread snack

Kale hemp bread makes the perfect portable snack.

chocolate dipped marshmallows

BEST idea ever!! We ate a lot of this yesterday while we were working on a new recipe.

And these chocolate dipped marshmallows happened to be our pre-workout snack too. Love our chocolate and marshmallows. We filmed a new plank workout that we will share soon.

meatballs

Post workout meal was some steamed kale and carrots with beef liver meatballs.

You all know we LOVE desserts! We always like to enjoy a little something everyday. It is just who we are and know that will never change. And this dessert here is a remake of an old recipe with some minor changes.

Can’t wait to share this updated recipe with you guys next week! Promise it will be worth the wait.

dinner

Dinner was sprouts, lettuce, half avocado (each), red cabbage cooked in coconut oil and salmon, and spiralized zucchini. All topped with more coconut oil and black lava sea salt.

We also received a great question yesterday from Courtney -

How do we know what foods are trigger foods – as some reactions can take a day or two show up?

AWESOME question Courtney – and we wish we had an AWESOME answer. But sadly we ask ourselves this question all the time. As you can see from our eats and how we are always changing them we debate “trigger” foods all the time. We really try NOT to stress but it can be hard when you took something out of your diet, thinking it was the culprit, but then you still get symptoms again a few days later. This cycle starts becoming very frustrating.

But all we can say is:

  • do your best to track everything.
  • Keep a journal.
  • Take pictures.
  • And keep playing around with things, but do remember sometimes it can be outside factors like STRESS.

Thanks again Courtney for the great question. Best of luck on your journey!

We will be back later with a new recipe ;)

    Can’t wait for that kale hemp flatbread recipe in your new cookbook!! Abs are burning, I am sort of hooked to your ab routine. Love how it works those lower abs, after 4 kids…2 c-sections, hard to find good lower ab workouts!

    OMG chocolate dipped marshmallows are some next level stuff! I haven’t had time to make any marshies lately though!
    I did enjoy some chocolate coconut gelatin mush as a post workout snack this morning however, and that was mighty tasty!

    Also, I am addicted to the mesquite egg wraps now. I had one around some truffle mustard, spinach and roasted veggies last night. YUM. I meant to share it on twitter but then I ate it too fast…

  5. Another suggestion I would add is that you be aware of the many ways a food sensitivity can affect you. It can be seen through skin, digestion, BMs, headaches, brain fog, etc…,a good google search will reveal the many ways they can show up!

    Love the chocolate dipped marshmallow idea! Yum!
