Paleo challenge: day 5

From Jan 1 – 31 I’m doing a strict paleo (Whole30) challenge with my CrossFit box. I decided to journal the month in food on here (in addition to normal posting) after getting a huge positive response on my Facebook page. I’m also going to detail the amount of sleep I got, the workout for the day and any other relevant notes. I’ll only detail drinks when it’s something other than water or tea, but note that I typically drink 80-100 ounces of water a day. I’ll link to recipes (either mine or other people’s) when applicable, but I don’t usually cook from recipes for myself so if you leave a comment asking for the recipe for something, there is none unless otherwise noted.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Notes for the day:

Weekends are tough. I watched Ulysses eat what was at least a 4 person serving of apple crisp in front of me at a restaurant while refusing to have a bite. I really wanted a damn bite. Also, I’m going through almond butter at an alarming rate. It’s my go to when I want “sweet”. Should probably work on that…

Sleep:

9.5 hours

Workout:

rest day

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Breakfast:

1/2 grapefruit

pumpkin pancakes

egg

1/2 piece of bacon

strawberries, blueberries, 1/2 banana

coffee with coconut cream

Lunch:

dijon glazed salmon

raw cabbage & carrot salad with a variation of sunshine sauce

coconut garlic kale chips (recipe coming)

Dinner:

chicken lettuce wraps (there was most likely something un-Whole30 in the ingredients of the chicken. i.e. soy sauce. Didn’t make a big deal of it. Also didn’t eat that fried tortilla shell or the rice noodles on top.)

celery & carrots

Snacks:

almond butter stuffed dates

1/2 larabar with almond butter

    Almond butter is my weakness and I’m not even doing Paleo! ;) What’s your favourite brand out of interest? Hows the wrist too btw?
