Friday, April 15, 2016. Whole30 plus 73 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
Let’s see what today brings…
4:15 AM. Awake before the alarm again. Couldn’t help it today – we have 2 very short periods of time in the Spring and Fall here in Las Vegas when we can sleep with the windows open. It was so windy this morning that all the noise woke me up. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. Ground beef hash with sweet potatoes; veggie mix (summer squash, butternut squash, zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and mushrooms) scrambled with a full cup of egg whites. And a half teaspoon of bee pollen.
I made a big mug of green tea for the morning sipping.
10:30 AM. Started in on my lunch. Carrots and celery followed by my green salad topped with a grilled chicken breast. Oil and vinegar dressing, of course.
I had to finish lunch early because I had a lot of running around to do this afternoon. So once I left my office, the cancellations started coming in – whiz bang boom, my entire afternoon just got cleared!
1:00 PM. Snack. A sliced Red Delicious apple, some homemade beef jerky, and a double shot of espresso with some steamed almond milk.
Whole30 Observation: I’ve actually sent an email to the company who makes the cure that I used for this beef jerky. I’m waiting to hear back from them before I make the final call on whether or not I use their product again. I’m trying to do a little research and educate myself on food labeling, and now I’ve become obsessed with this product. I was warned that this would happen.
6:30 PM. Dinner. A carne asada burrito from Roberto’s. *drops mic…walks away*
OK, let’s talk about the flour tortilla, from a real tortillaria. Ingredients: Flour, water, lard and salt. Sooooo…does this get the Clean Eating tag? I know…flour. Inside the burrito was steak, pico de gallo, and guacamole. All compliant. All delicioso.
10:30 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
