I woke up around 6:45. I hadn't slept well because of an outrageous train of storms that came through Iowa, but five hours will have to do.
For breakfast, I had the remains of my Applegate Organics roasted turkey breast, which was two slices, along with a half tablespoon of coconut oil. Still feeling the caloric hangover of Saturday and Sunday, it was a small breakfast.
I drove back to Omaha, which was a two and a half hour drive, and did not snack. I had a bottle of sparkling water, and that's it.
When I got back, I went to Natural Grocers to get my goods for the week. I picked up
Chicken breasts and drumsticks
Coconut Milk (in the can!)
Jar of coconut butter
I live alone, and this rang up to about $50. All organic, free range, and delicious. Totally doable, even though I make next to pennies at my job.
Eating lunch at work is easy for me because I work in a home environment with a kitchen and all of the essentials.
For today's lunch, I made "sushi", which I call anything I put into a Nori sheet. (I use Sea Snax brand)
On these seaweed sheets I have tuna, 1/4 avocado, slices of bell pepper, roma tomato. I put a few sprinkles of Frank's Red Hot (original, not wing sauce!) on top for some added flavor. Delicious. If you have never tried seaweed, I highly suggest you do.
Soon I will be cooking my chicken breasts so that they don't go bad over the week, and when meals come I will add the chicken to vegetables or whatever else I decide to make. I found a recipe on the Whole 30 webpage for slow-cooker chicken curry, which I will be making tonight.
My chicken breasts are baked, and I put a spaghetti squash in the oven as well. It's 2 pm and I ate lunch at 11. Just had a snack of an organic gala apple and a serving of MaraNatha coconut butter.
Gym time was awesome. I started a new circuit program, and did HIIT running for over four miles. This is a huge deal because I've had shin splints for three months, and haven't been able to run. I felt so great. Now I'm a bit sore, but the best kind of sore.
Dinner time!! Decided to make cilantro line chicken with a side of broccoli topped with clarified butter. Simple and delicious.
