Monday, March 21, 2016. Whole30 plus 48 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
Let’s see what today brings…
4:15 AM. Alarm. Awake. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. Decided to go with the sweet potato and ground beef hash thrown in the pan with my veggie mix – summer squash, zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and mushrooms, all scrambled with some egg whites. I also had a half teaspoon of bee pollen.
I brewed up a big mug of organic green Jasmine tea to take to work with me. I think I’m going to stick with this tea for the week.
Whole30 Observation: Since I had sugar and dairy last night, I knew what I was probably going to be in for today, and lo and behold, it happened: another massive hunger attack at 10:45 AM. No warning, just hunger. I was very glad that my lunch was nearby so I could dig in right away.
11:00 AM. Lunch. A big green salad with a grilled chicken breast. Proteins and Greens!
3:30 PM. Snack. I had to grab a double shot of espresso with some almond milk for a quick latte, and eat up my apple slices.
4:30 PM. Back to the dentist to get my crown reattached. To be honest, it doesn’t bother me to be ‘crownless’ right now – I’m in no pain, I’m not being extra cautious when chewing, etc. I just hope I don’t have to be numbed-up again, because that will interfere with my dinner! The crown reinstallation was a success, time to get home and get my grub on!
6:30 PM. Dinner. Protein style hamburgers with sweet potato fries. Jane tried a new method for the fries using arrowroot powder to make them a little crispier. We give this recipe a thumbs down. We want to taste sweet potatoes, not arrowroot powder. We tried, right? Protein burgers were absolutely delicious!
See the burger bottom left? Remember Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors? Feed me, Seymour!
9:00 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
