Please excuse the narcissism.
I can’t help it.
And here’s my food recap of days 29-30.
Breakfast: Veggie omelette with onion, chopped mini-peppers and dehydrated cherry tomatoes. Fried plantains and bulletproof coffee on the side.
PWO: A protein shake with a frozen banana, 1/3 cup egg whites, light coconut milk and 1/2 scoop super greens powder because I’m out of kale. The banana really helped disguise the taste and smell of the powdered greens.
Lunch: A really big salad that has no photo. I had spring mix, sweet potato chews, tomatoes, homemade pickles, a whole avo, sunflower seeds and leftover seared bok choy. I had this with a side of pineapple rings. The meal was a little high in fat, but it kept me fueled during a busy shift at work.
Dinner: Aidell’s sausage, garden squash and pineapple cooked on the grill. I also had a sweet potato cake and some pickles.
The sweet potato cakes were supposed to be inspiralized buns, but uhhh, this is real life. Mine didn’t quite turn out Pinterest-worthy. I used my spiralizer to make sweet potato noodles (which took some muscle), steam-sauteed the noodles, added an egg and garam masala. Then I made rounds with a silicone mold. I did this before work and let the rounds chill in the fridge. I made 4 of them.
The sweet potato rounds spent too much time in the fridge with only a piece of parchment covering them. They looked a little gray when I got home.
I fried them in a cast iron skillet with coconut oil before dinner. They were definitely not a bun, but I probably will play around with this again.
Meanwhile Hubs manned the grill.
And this was my plate. The pineapple was still cooking.
Leftovers were a great egg-free breakfast this morning.
I haven’t had anything but water since breakfast. I exercised outside and my body really wasn’t digging it. All I wanted to do was puke behind a tree. But I knew I’d be disappointed in myself if I quit. That whole ‘listen to your body’ wisdom? Ummm, yeah.
Maybe I should go eat something.
