That's the question I'm struggling with now. So far I have been able to eat enough food, but I lack energy in the afternoon, which is possibly from not eating enough protein. The effect is magnified even more after a 10 am WOD.
I am not a big meat eater. 3-4 oz at every meal is enough for me, mentally. But perhaps it's not giving me energy long enough to make it to the next meal. In the past I have used more plant based protein. My CrossFit coach suggested eating more meat based protein by eating some with my snacks. I am having a hard time with this. I don't want to see meat more times during the day. I suppose I can get used to it, if I try.
I used the pulled pork leftovers for several days. It was easy to top with salsa and the other goodies I had on hand. That will be a repeat meal, and it's pork based too, bonus.
Trader Joe's All Beef Hotdogs are delicious and easy to make. I cook them, cut them up and top them with my probiotic sauerkraut, onions, drizzled with some homemade ketchup from "Well Fed 2". Quick and easy. This will be a good meal to take to home baseball games.
BLTA lettuce boats: Romaine lettuce leaf topped with bacon, tomato and avocado, then topped with another lettuce leaf to make a "sandwich. Need to find a non-egg containing mayo.
Bone broth was a nice way to add a healthy snack. Need to make more.
Ideas to Try:
Need to make a lentil soup and freeze some.
