Day 10: April 20th, 2016

Need a little motivation booster? Listen to this incredible interview of the author from 'Wheat Belly'. His name is Dr. William Davis and he had his cardiac patients go without wheat to see the effects... check out what happened HERE


Day 10 Agenda:
  1. Complete a sprint session! First, complete a 5min warm-up with jumping jacks, high knees, or a jog. Then, put on running shoes and decide on a number of sets to complete. For example, you could complete 5 sets of: 20 seconds of sprinting with a recovery in between {rest for about 30-60 seconds or until your breathing is back to normal} doing any cardio activity {running, rowing, bicycling, stationary bike, etc.}
The benefits of sprinting: slight increase in human growth hormone {HGH} and testosterone production, increase in muscle fiber growth, toned muscles, and metabolic advantages. Eat primally and sprint twice a week and you will get TONED quick!

Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- french omelet with spinach






Ingredients:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 handful chopped fresh spinach
  • a few pinches of course sea salt
  • a few cracks of fresh peppercorn
  • 1 Tbs kerry gold butter

Rather than trying to explain how to make this french style omelet (because, trust me, it's hard to explain, yet very easy to make) I have attached a short video HERE for you to watch. In our home, we usually make the first omelet demonstrated in this video, the country style french omelet. Enjoy!

Lunch- ny strip steak with an avocado tomatillo dressing



Ingredients:
  • 4 tomatillos, husked and diced
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 jalapeƱo, diced
  • handful of cilantro chopped finely
  • 1 tsp of salt
In a blender {or stick blender or food processor} mix ingredients together until smooth. That's it! Then drizzle on top of your steak:)

Dinner- pesto grilled shrimp
