2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 4

Whole30 2014For the next 30+ days, I will be eating meat, vegetables, healthy fats, fruits and nuts. I will not be eating processed food, sugar, dairy, grains or legumes, and I won’t be consuming any alcohol.

This is not my first Whole30, but this time I want to focus on a couple of specific elements: 1) fewer nuts as snacks and 2) fewer snacks in general. I would like to find the right mix of meals and pre-/post-workout fuel to keep me steady throughout the day.

If you’re doing a Whole30 or other challenge, if you are living/exploring the Paleo lifestyle, or if you are simply looking for some tasty recipes to add to your repertoire, be sure to leave a comment to let me know you’re out there! I am so glad you stopped by!

************************************************************************************************************************************

This week’s focus: Drink lots of water or tea.
7:00 Black coffee

9:00 Spinach, 2 eggs, 1 oz. chicken and gravy, 1/4 avocado

12:30 2 meatballs, banana

3:30 West Lake soup, Chicken handroll

6:00 Slow cooker pork, Pineapple-Coconut cauliflower rice, Spinach salad

Food Crazy day! I had very little time today and everything was rushed. It’s okay though – I had the right fuel and…no nuts! More veggies would have been great to snack on but they weren’t prepared.

Mood Good! I feel like my mood is getting lighter and brighter each day.

Sleep 8 hours! Bliss! Didn’t quite stay up until midnight, and was awakened by some fireworks at the new year, but slept in and felt great all day.

Activity Need more activity. I’m feeling quite antsy.

Focus A little short on the water, and I noticed it. Had a nice glass of bubbly water at cocktail hour to make up for it. 🙂

    • Hand rolls are coming soon! They are my new addiction. 🙂

      Chicken and gravy was from Nom Nom Paleo’s new cookbook. In a nutshell – chopped onion, garlic, tomato paste in the bottom of the slow cooker. Seasoned chicken on top. Go! Then defat and blend the veggies. I used the chicken all week in my hand rolls.
