8 week meal plan with Libby Wescombe

Happy Monday in blogland.

I am excited to start my 8 week eating plan with the fabulous Libby Wescombe today.  I have followed Libby for some time, she is a great crossfitter, and sets a great example to other women.  I follow her on snapchat, and often see her doing her meal preps …  I’ve decided to get on board and give it a crack for 8 weeks.

Everyone has different goals, mine is more energy and build muscle.  I got my youngest to take my before photos this morning (i could have done my hair at least) It is quite confronting having photos taken and then posting them for everyone to see … but I am interested to see the difference after this time.

even after only the first few meals, I see how important it is to actually measure our food.  I fall into the category and having something to eat and maybe putting my hand back in for another handful, or another cookie … when you actually stick to a program that is set, it is alot easier to be more conscious about the portions.

I am snapchatting my journey every day, so follow along if you are on snap chat … it might help others get motivated to give it a go too.  You can find Libby here   libby

I’ll be honest, I’m hoping my abs decide to show themselves … Libby is my ab motivation :-)

I started the day with a new recipe from Libby I had not tried before – Quinoa and Berries … off to a good start.

Monday Motivation – Paleo Muesli Bar Recipe

WOW …

I know why I don’t go out very often now.  We celebrated a friend’s birthday on Saturday night – was such fun, but my goodness …. recovering isn’t so good.  I guess that is why you are supposed to party hard when you are younger …

So, even though its been a slow start to the day (cause my eyes don’t want to open) its back on track this week.  I did do some meal prep yesterday and prepared lunches for a few days, so I have a healthy start.  I will also make another batch of my Paleo Muesli Bars today … they are my favourite snack right now along with the Blender Banana Bread (which I keep in the freezer and take out as needed)

Give these a try, you can add whatever you like to make them yum.  I use Quinoa flakes instead of rolled oats as oats do not work well for my digestion.  Swap it out if you prefer oats.

Paleo Muesli Bars

  • 1 cup Quinoa Flakes
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/2  cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • goji berries or cranberries or apricots (chopped) approx 1/2 cup
  • seasame seeds
  • sometimes I add LSA or Macca powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C.  Line a tin with baking paper.

mix dry ingredients together.  Add wet ingredients and mix well.  Depending on how many extra things you add, you may have to add more wet ingredients …. once it is combined it should stick together nicely … if it is too dry it will not stick together

push into tin, flatten out (i use a palet knife) bake for 20-25 mins or until brown.musleibar2

Slice while warm, store in airtight container.
