Monday, April 18, 2016. Whole30 plus 76 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
4:15 AM. Alarm. Awake. 2 cups of coffee. Black.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. I doubled my usual portion of 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 (and maybe a little extra) of egg whites. And a half teaspoon of bee pollen.
Whole30 Observation: It was suggested to me this morning by the one and only Jane that I boost my protein intake (hash, egg whites) in order to maybe control the carb/sugar reaction that I normally get from indulging (see yesterdays post). It seemed to work. I stayed full longer, and ate my lunch at regular time instead of the whole “suddenly famished” feeling that I get the day following being bad or eating the carbs I’m not used to.
11:00 AM. Lunch. A nice green garden salad with some green olives, and avocado making an appearance. Good stuff!
I ate my carrots and celery after I devoured this salad, and I ate my apple slices on the drive home.
6:00 PM. Dinner. Tandoori chicken (boneless thighs) and cauliflower rice. Love this dish.
Fully Compliant. Fully Delicious. Fully wanted to eat 3 more pieces.
OK, that’s about it for now.
9:30 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
Relive my journey from Day 1.
