Tuesday, April 5, 2016. Whole30 plus 63 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
4:15 AM. Alarm. Awake. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. Same as yesterday: Sweet potato (white and yellow) ground beef hash served with the veggie mix (summer squash, butternut squash, zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and mushrooms) scrambled with a half cup of egg whites. And a half teaspoon of bee pollen.
Another big travel mug of green tea for the road this morning. I could have used 2 with all the driving I had to do.
10:30 AM. Lunch. Salad. Big ol’ salad. Lots of spinach and assorted goodness. I also had a side of tuna (I love THIS LINK) and some plantain chips from Trader Joe’s. I’m so glad Jane bagged-up the plantain chips with portion control in mind. I think I have exactly 20 chips here. I could have eaten 200 of these crunchy little slabs of deliciousness.
4:30 PM. Snack time! I tried something new today for a change – I had a double shot of espresso with some steamed almond milk to make a compliant SWYPO latte, some of my homemade beef jerky and a sliced Red Delicious apple. Tasty! “So where’s the ‘something new’ with your snack, dude?” you may ask. I ate my apple with a fork. That’s something new! “Why?” Using the computer + eating apples with fingers = sticky keyboard. “Oh”.
6:00 PM. Dinner. Thai meatballs and sauce served over cauliflower rice. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – This is one killer meal. We use ground chicken instead of ground turkey. You need this in your repertoire. Trust me.
You might not believe this, but EVERY picture I have posted on this blog, since Day 1, was taken with an iPhone 6. Hard to believe, right?!? I know! Anyway, I actually consider myself to be doing YOU a favor by doing a quick photo and post of what I’ve eaten for the day. I mean, if I used my good DSLR and staged my pic’s, all of you would be licking the screen and begging for more. I can’t be held responsible for that.
On another side note, I was in such a hurry to get at a second helping of these Thai meatballs, that I ended up kicking the kitchen trash can – BAREFOOT. I may have said 1 or 7 dirty words. So I took a picture. Not gonna post it. Unless I get some gnarly bruises. Then I’ll post it.
Photography, again: On a very serious note, I am continually amazed at the quality of photos and the effort taken to stage their food and beverages by the people whose blogs I follow. Very professional!!!
9:00 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day. Except for that whole trash can thing.
Relive my journey from Day 1.
