Paleo Protein Egg Muffin Bites

low carb, paleo, healthy

So it’s time for me to start doing a little “hacking” in the kitchen to get my calories in order as I start to prepare for my Aug 23rd competition.

As I mentioned, I have no intention of suffering through an egg white and oatmeal rinse and repeat diet. I want yummy, real food and I’m not going to suffer through carb cycling or anything else that doesn’t bode well for my body. If that means I don’t get to 8% body fat….so be it.

I love proteins and healthy fats and both work really well for me. This little bite sized snack is awesome to toss on top of a salad or keep for those “hangry” moments that we all have, right? Or is just me?

So far this week I can’t say I’ve been totally on point with my diet. I really wanted to start early and slide into my show weight, but the problem is that I work better under pressure – a tactic that works well for exams or other deliverable deadlines, but not for healthy fat loss.

I’ll need to figure this one out soon…
