Paleo challenge: day 7

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:

1 week down! Can’t say I feel much different. It’s funny because most of the people at my box seem to have experienced some sort of “carb flu” in the first few days but I haven’t felt the least bit different over the past week. Guess that means I was eating pretty well beforehand.

Sleep:

9 hours

Workout:

CrossFit (modified again. A pyramid wod of running, hollow rock holds, lunges, pistols & russian twists)

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

Breakfast:

pumpkin waffle (minus maple syrup)

almond butter

1/2 banana

strawberries

blackberries

pecans

coffee with coconut cream

Lunch:

sautéed sage & apple chicken thigh

sautéed kohlrabi greens & spinach

cabbage & carrot salad

Dinner:

spaghetti squash

tomato meat sauce

Snacks:

handful of nut & dried fruit mix

      He eat whatever I put in front of him ;) haha but he does eat other non-paleo stuff too. He’s the least picky eater ever thankfully!

    I am so inspired by everything by you and your page. All of the meals look delicious :) Would you mind telling me what kind of almond butter and coconut cream for your coffee you buy? Thanks so much :)

      I usually buy trader joe’s almond butter. the creamy with salt one :) The coconut cream I use in the coffee is just a regular can of full fat coconut milk that I leave in the fridge overnight. The cream part goes to the top and I scoop some of that off and mix into the coffee.

      Thanks, Ashley ;) I was craving comfort food and that meal definitely did the trick even without the pasta!
