First off I’d like to apologize for not posting the last few days. I promise I haven’t given up on the Whole30. In fact, I’m pretty proud of myself for resisting temptations this weekend. That includes only drinking water all night at the bar I went to on Friday night to listen to my friend Jordan dj. Hopefully you don’t mind three days all lumped into one post.
Whole30 Day 4
Breakfast: Daily black coffee with some almonds.
Lunch: Leftover Dijon Lime Chicken from Thursday night with the leftover kale chips.
Snack: Argo Tea Mate Latte Espresso made with Almond Milk.
Here is where I probably messed up bit. My coworkers and I decided that we needed a quick break to run to the Argo tea in the Sears/Willis Tower. The girls that work there were incredibly helpful and let us taste test pretty much anything we wanted. And when one of my coworkers tasted the Mate Latte with soy milk, they told me that they could make it for me with almond milk. Well I got so excited about that, that I ordered it without really thinking. I forgot about possible sugar. They say it’s “sugar-free” but who knows what that means. Ah well. Live and learn.
Dinner: I told Jake that I was craving a burger for dinner but didn’t feel like cooking. He suggested that we head to The Counter so we could build our own. Ordered beef on a salad of mixed greens with avocado, grilled onion, grilled peppers, egg and roasted red peppers. The only sauce that I could find that was possibly dairy free was a blended salsa. It was pretty good. Even had a few of the sweet potato fries, although I let Jake have most of them since they were probably fried in canola oil.
Whole30 Day 5
So here is where my meals get a little tricky. I mentioned that I went out Friday night. Well I didn’t get home until 7:30am Saturday…I know I know. Party animal. Anyway, I was glad that I stashed in my purse this dried fruit bar from Trader Joe’s. They were $0.45 cents and only had fruit in the ingredients. No sugar and no chemicals. And it was delicious. Ended up crashing from 7:30am until 5:30pm…there went my Saturday.
Dinner/Breakfast?: When I woke up at 5pm, I made myself some scrambled eggs the way my mom always made them. Not sure if it’s a Colombian thing or just an O’Byrne thing. (Yes my mom is from Colombia but her dad’s family was from Ireland, hence the last name).
Ingredients: Green onions, garlic, tomatoes and eggs.
