Lunch: Egg white omelette
Dinner: Soup, baked potato
Some mornings I wake up and don’t have a big appetite, so after coffee and a few almonds I might just have something simple, like a banana. I don’t recommend doing this if you have a busy morning because you’ll need more food for more energy, but since I stay at home I can eat whenever I want and don’t have to worry about what time my lunch break is or when I’ll be able to eat next.
For lunch, I still had some leftover pork from W2D1, so I mixed some egg whites, spinach, almond milk, salt and pepper together and poured in a smaller cast iron pan to make an omelette. Once cooked almost all the way, I added some shredded pork and flipped the egg over to close and heat through. I let it cook for a couple more minutes then moved to a plate and topped with avocado! Eggs take no time at all to cook and adding leftover meat gives you even more protein to keep you feeling full and awake.
I went to a friends house this evening and stayed way longer than planned so had dinner with her. She eats clean all the time so I knew the soup she was making would be compliant to Whole30 and I didn’t have to worry about messing up my thirty days. It was full of vegetables and gave me the energy to power through a tough Spartan inspired workout we made up, posted below.
I didn’t get home until about 11 p.m. that night and was really hungry, but also didn’t want to cook anything so I made a baked potato in the microwave (no skin) and added coconut oil, salt & pepper, hemp hearts, and hot sauce on top. This isn’t a very nutrient-dense meal or snack, but it made my stomach stop growling and I didn’t have to do any work to make it. I also had a Larabar which makes this a carb-heavy snack, but I was hungry so I wasn’t worried about any of that! (<—This is where bad decisions are usually made (cookies, ice cream, sugary snacks) you just have to remind yourself of your goals!!)
