Feeding an Athlete – and a baby!

There is going to be a little husband appreciation on the blog this week. Not only does Nick work hard to keep Rosalie and I in the manner to which we have become accustomed. He also trains hard and I mean HARD. He is a competing Crossfit athlete. He trains 6 days a week, 3 hours a day, fitting it in around 8 hours of work and Rosie time.

I like to do my wifely duties and make sure the boy is eating right. There are so many buzz words around crossfit where diets are concerned, paleo, clean eating…
We basically try and eat as healthy as we can, every day. Making healthier choices rather than going without. Of course we have cheat days and that’s ok. We love food and it is one of our shared pleasures in life. I ain’t about to give up the joy of steak, chips and peppercorn sauce!
I thought I’d start to share with you what we eat. The meals I make nick, the food I buy. We like to eat well but we don’t have the largest food budget so I pick and choose where I spend our money. Meat, for example, we buy from our butchers. It can be more expensive than the supermarket but often it can be cheaper and the quality is worth it.
I’m also weaning a baby. Rosalie turned 6 months old yesterday so can pretty much eat everything now. I’m not about to make my life difficult by cooking different things for them. So my meal choices will be suitable for her too. They pretty much eat the same anyway, VEG and lots of it!
I filmed our most recent food shop so you can see what I bought, and I have included our meal plans for this week too.
In this series I hope to share with you meal ideas, recipes, grocery hauls. Maybe what other products and protein etc nick takes if your interested. Let me know.So stay tuned, It’s going to be good. Subscribe to my you tube channel here so you don’t miss a thing!
