Today on Ask Cahlen I’ll be answering the question, “What do you eat?”
I have a feeling the person asking this question is specifically curious about what I eat when I’m living nomadically on my Solar eBike, but my diet is a little different now that I’m living in a cabin in the mountains, so I’ll describe both situations.
When living nomadically I focus on compressing as much food into as little space as possible. In the morning I drink Hot Chocolate with Coconut Oil, Cacao Powder and Xylitol to keep me in ketosis and gain many of the benefits of intermittent fasting. For dinner I usually have either white rice or oats cooked with salt and Coconut Oil. For my daily greens I rely on tablets of Spirulina and Chlorella which provide me with a huge number of different necessary vitamins and nutrients.
My diet is pretty similar when living a more stationary life, with a few differences. I still drink the Hot Chocolate in the morning, which contains over 1000 calories of fat. For dinner I generally eat white rice or sweet potatoes with vegetables fried in coconut oil. I also will eat eggs and grass-fed butter.
Things of course change from day-to-day, but the general idea is fat-fueled intermittent fasting with clean carbohydrates and greens for dinner. I avoid wheat, dairy (except butter) and cooked vegetable oils. Everything is organic, grass fed and pastured.
In general I follow the Bulletproof Diet, which has completely changed my life over the last two year. Check out this poster describing what to eat and not eat in an easy to understand way.
