Whole30 Day 26

This is going to be short and sweet because it is currently 7:08am and I have to be at work at 8:00am!

I stayed up WAY too late reading the book for my next book club meeting, Gone Girl. I am totally sucked into this book and knew I should go to bed, but I could not put it down! So when the alarm went off at 5:00am for my morning swim, I mildly acknowledged its existence, turned over and went back to sleep. I slept for about an hour and woke up to make breakfast. Below is a breakdown of my eats for the day:

Breakfast - 2 mini burgers, stir fried peppers and onions, salsa
                  Fruit bowl with bananas, blueberries, raisins, coconut and coconut milk


Lunch - mixed greens salad topped with chicken and avocado, Lara Bar, berries

Snack - sun-dried tomato baba ganoush, carrot and celery sticks

Dinner - salad with shrimp, crab, avocado, artichoke hearts and broccolini with oil and vinegar dressing

I had a total of about 5.5 to 6 hours of sleep and my body was ravenous all day, basically begging for the energy it missed out on because of my lack of sleep.
Lesson - Sleep. Just do it.

    1. That is awesome - when I was first contemplating a Whole30 it was SO helpful to see what other people ate so I never felt like "What the heck am I supposed to eat??" :) Good luck and I hope you are feeling great so far!

  2. Your fruit salad combinations are so interesting and they look delectable! Who would cheat when they could have delicious fruits covered with coconut milk?

    1. Thanks! Once you "reset" your taste buds and realize how sweet fruit is you don't even need all that other stuff. :)
