Today didn’t seem like a good day to reintroduce another food, but I did *sort* of go off-plan today: I had a SWYPO food. A Whole 30 program rule is not to eat food that is paleo-ified junk food. They call this stuff “sex with your pants on” food. Some good examples would be: paleo pancakes, paleo cookies, paleo cake.
Ok, fine. I get it. But… 1) technically I’m not in my first 30 days anymore, 2) I’m on vacation, darnit, 3) the ingredients were all in Whole 30 compliance individually and 4) I have been traveling for a week and losing my energy and stamina with finding appropriate foods and well balanced meals. I didn’t really have any protein options other than almond butter at the vegan restaurant where we ate. So I had a smoothie. And it was delicious.
How I felt: Good, totally back to “new normal” and rested!
What I ate:
Breakfast: egg scramble with veggies (spinach, tomato, peppers, avocado). Coconut milk in my coffee
Lunch: Prana Smoothie from The Juicery: strawberries, bananas, raw almond butter and dates. A big green salad with avocado
Snacks: Hazelnuts, banana
Dinner: Moroccan chicken with sweet potatoes, apple with almond butter
