Getting Real Day 3

Sleep

I had a horrible time falling asleep last night and then was pretty restless all night. It was really hard to get up this morning.

Breakfast

2 hard boiled eggs, 2 slices smoked salmon, 8 strawberries, guacamole.

Nom Nom Paleo has a great recipe for perfect boiled eggs. Mine were still pretty hard to peel but no green ring. Nom Nom Paleo is another great resource for Whole30 recipes.

Lunch

Lunch was basically the same as yesterday. Salad with protein is my go to lunch anyway. I cooked extra shrimp last night so I had leftover shrimp for today’s salad. The salad was the same: romaine and spinach, sliced cucumber, diced red bell pepper, grape tomatoes, and dressing made from extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard and a dash of hot sauce.

Snack

I changed up my snack just a little today. 2 apricots (bought another quart at the farmers’ market so this trend will continue for another week), 10 cherries, 1 oz almonds, and 1 hard boiled egg. I am hoping the extra protein with help round out my snack a little.

Exercise

Rest day but did a brisk walk for 20 minutes.

Dinner

Thai red curry chicken (makes 3 servings)

  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 5 mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 2 TBSP red curry paste
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3 cooked chicken breasts, chopped or shredded

Cook the onions, peppers, and mushrooms in the coconut oil over medium heat until crisp tender. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Overall

Today went surprisingly well since I slept so poorly. I had pretty good energy levels all day. I got hungry round normal meal times. My food was really good today and very satisfying.

Day 3 is in the books and it rocked.
