Since I actually had a little extra time to prep meals for tomorrow, I made some Paleo Patacones from PaleOMG. I adore fried plantains and when these little guys popped up on The Foodee I knew I had to try them! They’ll make a great breakfast alongside some eggs, no?
We’ve both been having some weird cravings since we started the Whole30, too…The Man sent me a text this morning from the office to let me know he was having a murderous craving for chocolate–which is bizarre because he isn’t really a chocolate person. As for me, I’ve been dying for heavy whipping cream…not even the sweetened kind, just straight up on some berries or something…I don’t know if this means I need more fat or what, but I’d drop kick a kitten right now for even a little bit! *Sigh*
Otherwise, nothing new. I meant to get into the gym at some point during the workday but I was too busy, so I just did a quick but painful WOD at home thanks to a 1 pood kettlebell and The WOD Shop:
10 KB Swing
10 Goblet Squats
Owwwwwwww. I finished in 8:28.
Omelete with veggies and a banana.
You guessed it…another chicken/avocado/roasted garlic/hard-boiled egg salad.
After the WOD, I chowed down on the scooped out bottom of a butternut squash with almond butter…
I was originally planning on a baked salmon fillet, but since I’m just so brilliant I forgot to take it out of the freezer…so I had some Big Butt and The Man did Aloo Gobi. I also did another batch of roasted Brussels sprouts. Deja vu, anyone?
Something to think about:
Even though man has been evolving for 10,000 years, our daily necessities for both micro and macro-nutrients really hasn’t changed much…which might be why a Paleo lifestyle both works and makes you feel better. Go figure.
