A (Delicious) Day in the Life Of: Eric Allen

Posted on by admin

This is a day in the life of Eric Allen, man about town.  Those of you who live alone know how hard it is to muster up the energy to cook for yourself.  Also, “cooking in bulk” usually means eating the same damn thing every day. Here’s a great example of how to eat well, and keep things new throughout the day/week.

“I’ll gladly represent the live alone bachelor demographic :) After only 3 months at CrossFit Aspire I am definitely stronger than I have ever been. However, my diet has been CRAP, and as a result I am slow and my metcons have seen little-to-no improvement. I’m hoping this challenge will shed some unwanted pounds as well as help me recover faster and keep my energy and strength up for an entire metcon!”

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with sauteed onions, hot sausage, and roasted long hots. Also, some fresh fruit in coconut milk. I can’t believe how amazing that was, I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to regular milk!

Lunch: Pork shoulder cooked in a crock pot with cinnamon and apples, and roasted sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, and peppers

Dinner: At this point I was feeling tired and uninspired, so a simple hunk of steak and a mound of greens with some evoo and vinegar did the trick!

Snacks: I had some of those amazing hot sausage stuffed mini peppers, pictures were impossible to take because they literally went straight from the fridge to my mouth. They just taste too good! Also had a Larabar (gluten/dairy/peanut free variety) and a few almonds

And yes, all of my food is served on the finest of paper dishes and eaten with plastic cutlery – I did say I was a bachelor!! :)
