Ok, I did slightly better. I forgot to take a picture of lunch (again) but I managed to get one of dinner and breakfast.
Lunch yesterday, was raw vegetables with leftover artichoke lemon pesto and tuna with homemade aioli. Couple of thoughts: The raw veg and pesto was so great on Tuesday but by yesterday I was over it. Why am I so fickle? But now that I realize I am, it should help me plan better. In the past, one of the things that derailed me was lunch. If I’m not excited to eat the lunch I bring, I end up eating the lunch provided – i mean, heck, it’s free and usually super delicious – but the lunch provided rarely supports my dietary goals. So I have to make my lunches pretty awesome to find my inner glutton. Second thought: I love tuna packed in oil. It’s so much more flavorful. This tuna actually came with chopped jalapenos in it. It was a good change of pace but definitely not my go-to.
Dinner could have easily not happened. I had a long day at work and then a pretty crappy treadmill run and I was really not feeling it. That’s where this challenge is coming in handy. I feel obligated to not let my laziness take over. I remember how hard it is to eat Whole30 in a restaurant, so I feel tied to cooking at home and once I get started, it’s really not that bad.
I rubbed a flank steak with Magic Mushroom Powder (from the Nom Nom Paleo cookbook) and grilled it. I also scrounged around for some vegetables to grill. I ended up with zucchini, mushrooms and some cauliflower tossed with curry powder. I also whipped up a quick guacamole and topped it with a few grape tomatoes. This was not my most cohesive meal but it sure did make me happy.
Correction, I am still eating it. Cherries with pits take me forever to eat and I have no idea why. I guess it’s a good thing though because then my breakfast is extended over and hour instead of a quick 10 minute mouth-shoveling endeavor.
In other news, my fitbit came yesterday. I’m not entirely sure that I love it, but I’m still figuring it out. Is it just me or does this seems like a really expensive and really stylish pedometer? I mean it doesn’t do a whole lot. I do like the vibrating alarm feature. I wake up so early in the morning and Rob is such a light sleeper that I always feel a little guilty when my alarm goes off. This way I hopefully won’t wake him. I’m not 100% sure it will wake me though because this morning I woke up before the alarm went off. Anyway, I’m going to keep trying it and see what else it can do.
