Eat To Live Meal Plan


  • Raw vegetables: 1lb
  • Steamed/cooked vegetables: 1lb
  • Bean/legumes: 1 cup (include some with every lunch)
  • Fresh fruit: 4 servings
  • Whole grains/starchy vegetables: ≤1 cup
  • Raw nuts/seeds: ≤1 oz
  • Ground flaxseed: 1 tablespoon

I’m going to flout the “no oil” rule, and use some oil based salad dressings on my salads. Because I want to.

General meal plan:


  • Smoothie:
    • almond milk
    • 1 serving fruit
    • 1 scoop protein powder
    • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • Additional serving of fruit


  • Big salad with:
    • greens
    • assorted vegetables: peppers, mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers
    • black beans and chickpeas
    • dressing
  • Fruit


  • Big salad (same as lunch, without beans)
  • 2 servings cooked vegetables
  • Starchy vegetable if desired
  • Fruit for desert

Throughout the day: 64oz of water

This is going to be hard. I’m going to want to eat my weight in donuts and pizza. But I’m not going to. I’ll take it one day at a time. One hour at a time. I can do this. This is not hard. (I know I just said it was going to be hard, but…) In the grand scheme of things, this is not hard. Eating healthy foods isn’t hard.

I’m going to do this for 1 week. No ifs, ands, or buts. I have no big events this week. No book clubs or parties or what-have-you. No pre-period cravings. It’s a good week to do this. One day at a time. One hour at a time. Watch for some crazy tweeting, that’s all I have to say.

Tonight: salad prep.

Seriously, Clark?

Like for real? No. Seriously. No. Just…no. [whiny rich girl problem rant to commence] I don’t get it. I honestly don’t understand. Why the fuck is my running still so bad and only getting worse? Seriously. (Okay, I”m done with the “seriously”s now.) At the very least I would think I would be just maintaining speed, butContinue Reading

Sleep Typing

Aaaand this is where people are going to stop reading my blog. Well, maybe. But hopefully not. I haven’t been posting for a while for a few reasons: I haven’t been stoked about running, and therefore haven’t wanted to take the time to upload my stats and report on them There’s so much going onContinue Reading
