Today I’m starting to get tired of this. Nothing personal, just bored maybe. So I must admit I sort of cheated a bit (not a good word, I know) and had sparkling water mixed with fruit juice (not the fruit juice on its own, though) and also an un-needed snack when I wasn’t really hungry but felt like having it.
The snack was partially Whole Foods fault. I went there for non-sugar bacon, so I can cook the Nom Nom Paleo Slow Cooker Kalua Pig. I don’t go often to Whole Foods so when I go I love browsing the entire store and always end up with more items than the ones on my list. So I grabbed a snack and couldn’t resist but having it right after leaving the store…
The items I bought there for my Whole30 (there were some dairy items for the rest of the family too, but those are not relevant here ;o):
- Primal Kitchen mayo (made with avocado oil)
- Baba ganouche
- Pico de gallo
- Salad greens
- Tessemae’s Zesty Ranch dressing
- Epic bison jerky
- Epic beef jerky
- 1 Kit’s Organic apricot and sesame seeds bar
- 1 individual pouch of cashew butter
- and finally the bacon!
The snack I had was the cashew butter. It was actually hard to decide between it and the bar and the jerkys. ;o)
But other than that, the meals were all good.
In the morning I used the left over ground pork that I did not use in yesterday’s meatballs, and made a patty with onions, curry powder, salt and pepper, then I cooked it with some coconut oil. On top of that I placed 2 fried eggs and sided with half an avocado. Very filing and yummy.
For lunch I brought to work a can of sardines and some dressing (Tessemae’s Southwest Ranch). Then I made myself a salad on their salad bar, dressed with the dressing I brought and topped with the sardines. Finished it up with some strawberries.
At dinner time, we had the last meatballs from yesterday with asparagus and mini peppers. My parents were not dinning with us today, so I decided to cook with coconut oil and add some cayenne, which is typically something I can’t do if they’re here because my mom does not like either. I guess I exaggerated a bit on the cayenne I added to the asparagus, though. But it was still good. Spicy, but nice.
