This is a picture of my lunch today. A bit colorful, isn’t it (well, one color)?
I can honestly say that it happened totally by accident, but all the same, it is sort of ironic. Think that Orange Theory is going to my brain overmuch? You’ll notice that the lunch of the day was the buffalo chicken and sweet potato from my last post. I can say after a few days that it ended up being much better than I thought it would be. The chicken was definitely hot, but the potato offset it quite a bit so it was even manageable for me! You should definitely check it out if you like chicken wings.
I also had a green smoothie for breakfast. Yes, I know it’s technically not Whole 30, but darn it all, if all the ingredients are either fruits or veggies and it’s a small smoothie, then I’m not giving myself a hard time about it. Am I skirting the edge? Probably. But then, that’s the life of a rebel. 🙂
Day 6 was definitely a sleepy day for me. I didn’t want to do anything but nap. What made it harder, was that sleep came really easily and with it, some very fun and crazy dreams! Still, I’m glad today (Day 7) isn’t quite like that. You can’t take naps during working days if you want to remain employed. I’d say cravings are low, and energy isn’t bad, but I’m not feeling that tiger blood yet. Maybe in a few days.
As far as plans for food this week?
- Sloppy Joe’s – using homemade ketchup. Probably on Tuesday
- Chicken Meatballs? – I still need to find a recipe
- I bought a cucumber, some broccoli and cauliflower, so will try to come up with some new recipe including one or more of those. I think the cucumber will be by itself – combining with the other two sounds slightly icky.
By the way, I may have gotten my brother to start the Whole 30 himself, now! Yay, for spreading the love!
