Burger Night, Puppies, and Whole30: Day 5!

This past Friday was Day 5 of my Whole30, and it was also my first time eating out at on the Whole30 diet. I was a little worried about what I would be able to eat, but it wasn’t so hard after all! You can eat out and eat clean, whole foods.

Breakfast

I packed up my first meal of the day to eat while I spent the morning working in my lab. Eggs with avocado, cucumbers, spinach and pico de gallo // a side of banana in an empty almond butter jar with some cinnamon and coconut milk thrown on top.

Lunch

Also eaten on the go- lunch was 2 eggs, sweet potato wedges, cucumber, pico de gallo, and spinach. I ate some roasted almonds on the side. Almost the same thing as breakfast- I guess it’s just easier to pack!

Workout

For my workout, I did 30 easy-ish minutes on the StairMaster. My legs were pretty sore from the previous day’s leg workout but I wanted to get some kind of activity in. I also did about 50 squats with a 45 lb bar for a trial in lab… oh the joys of working in a Health Sciences lab..we get to play with stuff and test procedures on ourselves!

Snack

When I finally made it back to my apartment I was hungry, but it was close to dinner, so I threw together and easy snack while I was getting ready. Frozen berries, a little coconut milk, and a little coconut butter.

Whole 30 Day 4

Hey! Happy Weekend y’all! This post is all about the food, so I’ll get straight to it. This is Day 4 eats of my Whole30 journey. I hope they provide inspiration and healthy eats ideas for you guys.

Breakfast

A mishmash of everything I had in my fried. Fish, spinach, spaghetti squash, sauce// an apple + coconut butter on the side.

2 parts: eggs, spinach, and avocado. Followed by delicious plantain chips with ‘lazy girl guacamole’ (avocado, mixed with pico de gallo//other pre-made salsa).

Workout

I took one of my friends to workout for the first time- lots of fun!! We did a leg workout with some abs thrown in. It was a 10-9-8-7-6 workout, meaning we did 10 reps of each move, then went through the circuit again doing 9, etcetera down to 6 reps/move. This workout is no joke, and I promise your booty will feel it the next day (and the days after that….)!

Snack

I was hungry after that workout, so I threw together a bowl with frozen berries, a little almond butter, and some coconut milk drizzled on top. The coconut milk froze and made a delicious layer on the berries!
