Some days for me are better than others. I had to dock myself a point yesterday for a discretion I had with my husband's glass of wine ... naughty. While still within the rule of WLC, I've also managed to devour a 16 oz. jar of almond butter in less than 4 days, not cool. This is why I rarely kept any nut butter in the house before. I miss my PB2!
One of the goals I set for myself during the WLC was to incorporate vegetables into my breakfasts, something I'd always struggled with.
On Sunday I made Paleo "Oats" from a a head of cauliflower.
On Tuesday I made sweet zucchini pancakes from coconut flour and pure raw Stevia.
This morning I made balsamic brussels sprouts with a fried egg.
On the other days I may have eaten a slice of Paleo toast along with my post-WOD protein shake (At CFM we made a special rule: we are allowed post-WOD protein) but I made sure to get at least a handful of tomatoes in.
What are some of your new favorite recipes you've been playing with over the challenge? A new ingredient you've tried? I love the shaved brussels sprouts I found at Trader Joes. I even had brussels again for dinner!
Browned butter balsamic glazed brussels and mushrooms. I topped with a little sesame seeds for some crunch, fantastic! (No protein pictured, because .... I brought home a bison burger *no bun, just veggies* from Yeah Burger, but it was so good, I literally was having an orgasm in my mouth, and just could not be bothered with a damn camera.)
Colorado grass-fed bison! Disappeared in 3-2-1 ...
Not sure if any changes are happening on the outside? But, I am so happy I haven't eaten artificial sweeteners in almost a week!
What's one food you cut out that you didn't want to?
For me it was PB2. I don't see anything wrong with it, but, it does have a tiny bit of sugar in it (maybe 1 or 2g) and happens to be a legume, and CFM'ers are not allowed legumes unless vegetarians.
Stay strong and carry on!
