Whole30 Days 14 & 15

Well, we’re half way through it.  Our Whole30 is going very very well, and I can’t believe how quickly it is flying by.  It was unfortunate that the first half of our month has been so boring.  Don’t worry — this week will make up for it.  Starting today!

First let’s go back to Day 14.

For breakfast I had two fried eggs, bacon, and a side of fermented cabbage and beets.  Black coffee on the side.

I worked a half day at work, so I did not take any sort of lunch.  Breakfast kept me satisfied until I got home around 6 pm.  Upon making it home — Jason had started marinating some steaks and we had some Texas-style beef ribs on the grill as well.  I have noticed that my meals have pretty much revolved around protein lately…and I haven’t been doing very well at including any greens or veggies.  I’ll have to work on it.  The steak was enjoyed all alone — and it was heavenly.

Then along came the ribs — with some greens.

Day 15 — my only day off this week; hence, grocery day!  It has been awesome!

I was able to sleep in just a little today.  I wanted to wake up early enough to go running at Veteran’s Park.  Pre-run I ate half a grapefruit.  I have missed grapefruit so much…I used to eat it every single day, years ago.  I think we’ll be bringing the grapefruit back.

Jason and I ran two miles, and then decided to do another mile — barefoot.  We walked most of it, but we have heard awesome things about running/walking barefoot.  It is supposed to really help with knee pain that you experience when running a lot as well as help with posture.  It did feel nice.  We are becoming far too hippy-like I think.  So I’ll have to work on that as well.  haha.

We got home from our run and I decided to make us a great breakfast.  My very first recipe from Practical Paleo — some awesome pumpkin pancakes!  Now typically “pancakes” even paleo-like are not allowed during a Whole30 just because the goal is to go an entire month without those types of bread-like things that we so commonly wish for.  I figured these were acceptable though because they didn’t have the typical almond meal or coconut flour; they were simply made with pure pumpkin, eggs, and some spices.  We topped our pumpkin pancakes with a little coconut butter and had some bacon slices on the side.  No syrup/sugar what so ever.

That breakfast kept me really full.  Skipped lunch again… we went to the grocery store and when I came home I made some chicken thighs/legs in the oven to eat on through out the week.

Around 5 pm I made dinner — another new recipe from Practical Paleo!  This one has been shared on her website already I believe.  The recipe is called Citrus Macadamia Nut Sole, but I went a different direction with it.  Macadamia nuts are far too expensive, so I opted for almonds.  Sole was not available at our market, so I went with cod.  Our fish was served with a big salad and was absolutely amazing.
