Friday, April 29, 2016. Whole30 plus 87 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. Ground beef hash with white and yellow sweet potatoes; one cup of supposed to be scrambled egg whites with one cup of this weeks veggie mix: summer squash and zucchini, red and green peppers, and mushrooms. I also had a half teaspoon of local bee pollen.
My eggs ended up in omelette form because I wasn’t paying attention to my cooking. Look! Something shiny! *wanders away*. It’s like that a lot for me…
And, for the fifth time this week, I’m going with the tried and true green tea this morning for the ride in and office time.
Here’s a side note from us – our friends little girl turned 5, so Jane put together these little cookie pops for her.
Whole30 Observation: Cookies = My Kryptonite, Achilles Heel, Samson’s Locks, you name it. These little pops were made using Oreo’s and Candy Melts. Oreo’s have always been one of my all-time favorites. While Jane was making these cookie pops, I didn’t sneak single one. But I did make an inquiry as to when a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies (with walnuts) might be making an appearance. So I have Christmas to look forward to, I guess.
The view from my first stop this morning:
11:00 AM. I just had to stop in to my office. Lunch. Another awesome green salad with half an avocado and leftover brisket, oil and vinegar dressing. Delicious.
Lots of running around today. I had a big bag of carrots and celery to chew on while I was driving around. I managed to not hit any traffic this afternoon and made it home at a decent time.
4:00 PM. Snack. Sliced Red Delicious apple, and a latte made with a double shot of espresso and some steamed almond milk. I’m feeling much better now that I had some coffee this afternoon!
5:30 PM. Dinner. Leftover encore presentation from last night, just re-packaged. I diced up and cooked a medium white potato in the TFal ActiFry, sliced up some leftover grilled zucchini, and cubed up a leftover pork chop. I cooked the spud ’til it was mostly done, threw in the leftover chopped grilled chop and let it get warm, then tossed in the zucchini just long enough to warm through. Again, all the cooking was done in the ActiFry thing. Another winner!
A bowl full o’ goodness.
Early dinner tonight due to us having to get on the road and attend a school event.
So with that, I shall bid you adieu…
10:30 PM. Targeted bed time. We’ll see about that.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
Relive my journey from Day 1.
