Paleo challenge: day 4

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

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.

Today was the first day I craved my typical afternoon dark chocolate snack. Like hard. I shoved hot tea down my throat instead.

Aw, I bet your legs are feeling the pain! That was like when I injured my knee all I did was core and upper body stuff. My abs have never been in so much pain. Carob, is it allowed on paleo? I can't remember. Live the look of that cabbage salad, definitely a must try!

Thank you so much for posting your meals while doing the Whole30. Following you through the process is helping me stay on track and get additional meal ideas. I made the Pumpkin Pancakes today and plan to make the Breakfast Bake tomorrow.
