Another Whole30, Cuz I Just Can’t Get Enough!

12 Jul

I had a great 4th of July away for the entire weekend. My 30th day was on the 4th and I stayed strong and stuck to it. The rest of the weekend I stayed close to my normal plan, but did have some indulgences. Tequila-Agave-Lime-ClubSoda drinks, some corn on the cob, s’mores to name a few… I had fun and enjoyed myself, but didn’t get nuts.

I was craving sugar on Monday and that was a wake up call. I realized giving in and eating processed sugar brought the cravings, which is the last thing I need. Decided to start a new Whole30, because I want to continue feeling GOOD.

Day 1 – Dinner

Coffee Marinated & Rubbed Grassfed Skirt Steak, Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk, Sauteed Organic Rainbow Chard, Sauteed Organic Peppers and Red Onions. This was delicious!!! I used Juli Bauer’s Coffee Marinated Steak Fajita recipe from “OMG, That’s Paleo?” SO GOOD!!! I need to marinate meat more often! Also, I LOVE mashed sweet potatoes. So easy to make and a great vitamin rich breakfast or post-workout carb. I peel the sweet potatoes, boil in water until soft (test with a fork), then just use an electric mixer to mash them with some coconut milk for added healthy fat and a creamy texture.

    I would gladly do things of questionable legality to get my hands on some fresh veggies like that. Looks fantastic!
