2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 19

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

6:30 Kale, 3 eggs, cucumber-tomato-avocado salad

10:00 Tuna cup

11:30 Grilled chicken salad with lots of veggies

2:30 Post-workout Tuna cup

6:30 Five-spice pork ribs, Sesame Brussels sprouts, 1/2 banana, 1 orange

Food My hunger is coming back and I’m sure it has some making up to do! I’m trying to keep things steady and not go crazy.

Mood I am excited and happy about my new adventure. Still a bit overwhelmed with the number of things on my to-do list lately, but I’m checking them off one at a time.

Sleep 7 hours. I have some making up to do here as well but that felt great!

Activity CrossFit style workout for 25mins – dripping with sweat at the end. Then a few biceps and triceps just for fun.

Focus Tuna cup post-workout. I think I’m back in the habit of refueling and I’ve found something that really works for me. There will be a recipe for these coming soon because they are great pre- and post-workout as well as for a snack.
