Wednesday, May 11, 2016. Whole30 plus 99 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
Let’s see what today brings… A lot of this is going to look really familiar. Again. Déjà vu. Déjà vu can be a lot like Déjà moo – you know, when you’re at work and the boss comes up with something really stupid or you’re talking with that one ‘Drama’ friend and it’s like “Oh, no, this bullsh!t again…” Yeah, that’s Déjà moo. OK, where was I? Oh, yeah…blog…
4:15 AM. Alarm. Awake. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. Ground beef hash with white and yellow sweet potatoes mixed in; a cup of veggie mix: summer squash and zucchini, red and green peppers, and mushrooms, all scrambled together with one cup of egg whites. And a half teaspoon of local bee pollen.
I made a big travel mug of green tea this morning. Imagine that.
11:00 AM. Lunch. A nice big green salad with half an avocado and a diced up grilled pork chop on top. The pork chop was grilled with some mesquite seasoning, and it came out great. Again.
4:00 PM. Snack. I had a double shot of espresso with my apple slices. Tasty as always.
I talked about this before, and I would like to repeat what I said before – we’re definitely not coffee snobs, and we’re willing to give most brands a try. Within reason, of course. I wrote about trying ground espresso “off the shelf”, and found that Illy was pretty good. We also tried Megaglia D’Oro, and liked that as well. So props to the Italian brands so far. So now we’re going to check out Columbia for some Café Bustelo. Not bad. I like the strength and richness of the flavor. Nothing too subtle going on here. The Rick and Jane consensus is that all three of these espressos are good for stand alone double shots and café Americano’s. With that being said, we do have our stash of single origin / fair trade / organic beans and a really nice Capresso conical burr grinder – – – I just started going coffee snob here, so I’ll stop about the coffee now.
6:00 PM. Dinner. Grilled pork chop, white potatoes cooked in the TFal ActiFry, and FRESH green beans. Yummmm.
I’ll shut up now.
9:30 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
