Paleo challenge: day 17

From Jan 1 – 31 I’m doing a strict paleo (slightly modified 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:

One word for today: carnitas. I love ‘em and if I didn’t promise Ulysses some for dinner tomorrow when he gets home from the week, I’d probably have already polished off the entire 3 lb. chuck roast myself.

    I noticed that you only have partial foods listed…1/2. Scone, 1/4 sweet potato, 1/2 avocado…is this a serving? Or are you being strict with calories? Just wondering if my servings are off. I would eat the whole scone, and al the sweet potato if it was small. Thanks!
