The requisite #latergram of dinner last night - grilled teriyaki salmon with a backyard grown salad of romaine, mint, basil, strawberries, figs, raspberries, and a homemade mango-lime dressing. Food prep tomorrow! #fitfam #fat2fit #foodprep #foodporn #eatclean #eatcleantraindirty #spartanrace #nutritionista #creatingsubstance #joeydoesntsharefood

So last night was the first night I’ve spent away from Dory since I adopted her 10 months ago. It is possible that she missed me. #thebestwelomehome

Following up on my last post, I pass a decent number of fruit stands on my mile and a half foot commute through Harlem every day; that’s meant that I’ve gotten to figure out who has good stuff and good prices, and who has a rat problem and ecoli. For a box of figs, 5 mangos, and 3lbs of lychees, I paid $8, and it’ll round out my salads until the end of next  week. Also, this post is the preemptive start to a lot of #saladporn. #foodporn #fitspo #fitfam #foodprep #spartanrace #eattoperform #eatcleantraindirty #vegan #vegetarian #creatingsubstance

So a question and excuse I’ve gotten a lot recently regards how to go about actually putting into practice #cleaneating when you’re on a tight budget. I’m pretty well acquainted with how difficult this can be, as I’ve got my fair share (and then some) of bills, expenses, and student debt, as well as some very spoiled dogs. The honest answer is that for someone with money to spend, eating for your goals takes planning, and if you’re on a budget, eating for your goals takes a fuckload of planning. Right now, in the summer, is the easiest time to eat clean and have fun with your food - it’s all about planning ahead in what you’d like to eat for the week, what is on sale, and where you are going to go. This cart is at #hmart, a Korean grocery store, and at least a week’s worth of produce and perishable items totaled up at $36.94. I also shopped at a second produce port, where I spent another $6 on grains and additional veggies, and spent $8 on fruits to go in salads at stands I’ve priced out on my walking commute across the city. Plan ahead, and think through what items can go together and make up more than one meal - and be willing to plan your time to try to run in to make an extra stop. #latergram #foodprep #foodporn #fitspo #fitfam #foodstagram #spartanrace #eatcleantraindirty #eattoperform #toughmudder #nasm
