Nom’ing Wish List

I know I always dwell on this, but I have never thought in my wildest dreams that I’d be cooking my own meals. EVER.

To think, up until 9 months ago I ate all my food from fast food plastic containers and if it didn’t come wrapped up in a piece of pretty printed paper, I didn’t know what to do with it!
Ugh…shocking take out diet, rest in peace…

Okay, so now I’m within the crucial count-down zone of my competition prep once again and back on freshwater fish and egg whites until the middle of this week.

The water manipulation has begun and I’m HIIT’ing it in the gym everyday until I feel like throwing up. Yep, sometimes I do think I’m juuuuust that little bit crazy, but I’ve come this far so it’ll be silly to give a half-arsed attempt now, right?

This time round, I’ve been more prepared (seeing I now know what to expect). Tanning solution all ordered? Check. Bikinis? Check. Evening wear? Check (thank you Bariano!). Boring diet? Hmmm…

I’m actually more worried about the post-comp food flood gate opening up…

My official comp prep will finish mid-June, and after that I’ll be on my own for once in my life. No more trainer holding my hand. It’ll be me vs. the supermarket aisles and willpower.
I want to be able to stay lean while continuing to build muscle. So the best way to make sure I don’t OD on Krispy Kremes and Tim Tams again?

I’m compiling a list of yummy recipes that I’d love to try :)

The below is a shortlist of some recipes that sound delicious and healthy at the same time- still going with the low carb theme, but I will be inclined to serve these with quinoa and brown rice sides.

Can’t wait to start experimenting in the kitchen after June!
