Paleo challenge: day 6

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:

I haven’t been eating a ton on Sundays since Ulysses started the police academy. He leaves to go back between 5-6pm so we eat an early dinner and between that and waking up later than weekdays, I’m never hungry enough for 3 full meals.  The trick is to get to bed before hunger for a 4th meal kicks in though. Also, short ribs. I can’t believe I‘d never made them before today. Unbelievable meal.

Sleep:

7 hours (party animals last night buying diesel in 5 gallon increments at the gas station at midnight since I totally effed up the oil delivery and we ran out. Sadly, this isn’t the first time I’ve done this.)

Workout:

rest day

    You eat so well and such discipline. I’m up at midnght eating half a tub of peanut butter and peanut butter blondies.

    Must do better but not sure how. Or I guess I know how but it doesn’t seem to be the right way or whatnot. The worst is how to recover from a binge (every night) when you can’t exercise.

      Just cut the avo in half and scoop out a little bit more of the whole where the seed was so that you can fit the egg. Crack the egg in the hole, season with s&p. Wrap tin foil around to create a basket (like the picture) and bake at 375 for about 20 mins. I finished with a minute under the broiler.

    How did you modify the short ribs? They look amazing and I’d love to know what you changed to make it paleo. Good luck with your challenge – I did a Whole 30 once, but I was not nearly as creative as you!

    How did you make the short ribs paleo? More so the red wine part? I figured you covered the ribs in almond flour instead? I’m doing the whole 30 aswell:)

      I replaced the wine with more beef broth. I actually didn’t even coat the ribs in flour, just seared them without but almond flour would work too!
