2014 New Year, New Whole 30 – Day 15

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: Post-workout nutrition.

5:00 Black coffee

7:30 Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower rice, 2 eggs

11:00 Post-workout 2 Tuna cups

12:30 Coleslaw, meatloaf, handful of nuts

2:00 Apple with coconut butter, 1/4 c. purple sweet potato

6:00 Roasted broccoli, Coleslaw with meatloaf

8:00 Handful of almonds and raisins

Food I have been quite hungry all day today. I think my early meals weren’t quite big enough, particularly the amount of protein, and they didn’t stick around for very long. And then it was another busy day so I was scrounging through the kitchen. Then I was snacky…. I need to make something fun!

Mood Mood is okay. Better than the past few days and at least it doesn’t feel like too many ups or downs.

Sleep 9 hours! Yes – I was tired and I totally crashed and then slept until my body woke up. Thank goodness!

Activity Chest and arms today. Good stuff! And yoga – finally.

Focus I was planning to change my focus each week, but post-workout nutrition is important and I haven’t worked out all the kinks yet. Most people can grab a bar or a shake, which is convenient, but finding the right fuel is a bit tricky. Today I had my tuna cups and that seems to be working well so now I need to make more.
