Hi friends, I’m Clara!
Welcome to Fitsian Food Life, a collection of recipes from my experiments in the kitchen! I love eating good food while still maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, which is why I started to create recipes for calorie and macro conscious meals.
Why I Started Fitsian Food Life
I started Fitsian Food Life because fitness and food have both always been an essential part of my life - and man do I love good food. But I am also adamant about staying on track with my fitness goals. Just ask my friends who have witnessed me pulling off burger buns and asking confused Taqueria workers to keep rice and sour cream out of my burritos.
I personally like to stay active by training muay thai and power lifting. In order for me to maximize my performance when training, it's essential for me to replenish my body with adequate macros so that I can optimize my workout performance while ensuring that I am eating within the right calorie range.
That means I need to eat meals that:
- Have enough protein
- Are well-balanced (aka have a good balance of carbs and fats)
- Fit in my calorie budget (in order to prevent any unwanted weight gain)
So I began integrating cooking into my fitness journey, modifying recipes from my favorite restaurants, food bloggers, and creating my own, making foods that I crave but that still fit in my calorie budget and hits my macros, which is easily done through ingredient swaps and portion control. You know what they say - 70% of fitness is all about nutrition - abs are really made in the kitchen!
I believe food can be both delicious and fitness-friendly - join me in my journey in creating food that achieves both 🙂
