Video of the Week: My Typical Diet + 3 Quick & Easy Salads

by Jordan Syatt January 7, 2013



Good morning!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to get to work in what is already the second week of 2013…

Damn that’s crazy how quickly time flies.

Anywho, I’ve gotta hustle because I need to get a Max Effort Lower Body training session in and then head over to my Biomechanics of Human Motion lab so please excuse the lackadaisical introduction.

I’m not going to leave you hanging, though, because this week I’ve recorded a video of me going into the deepest, darkest corners of my refrigerator and discuss what I tend to eat on a daily basis. Not only that, but at the end I’ve also included 3 quick and easy salads that I enjoy, are simple to prepare, and allow me to eat healthy even on-the-go.

Keep in mind, I’m a poor college student so my diet isn’t necessarily the most extravagant one out there but it definitely gets the job done.

I hope you enjoy the video and, as always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

Never Minimal. Never Maximal. Always Optimal.



My Typical Diet + 3 Quick & Easy Salads


I totally forgot to mention that, in order to reach my daily quota of protein (~150g), I supplement with Dymatize Elite XT.


I’d note, there’s nothing special about this brand – or any brand for that matter – except for that it’s the cheapest and best tasting one I can find. In fact, I only use protein powders because they’re a convenient and cost-effective way for me to reach my daily protein needs. If I had more time to prepare whole foods and sit down for every meal I would prefer to do that but, at this time in my life, it’s just not feasible.

For those interested in trying Dymatize EliteXT, Rich Chocolate is by far the best flavor, followed by Banana Nut, and finally Fudge Brownie. I know Fudge Brownie sounds the best but, in my opinion, it’s just not up to par.

Lastly, as promised in the video, below I’ve provided the link to my famous How to Make Shakshouka Video. 

Be careful, though, because once you make it there’s no turning back….
