So my version of the LuRong Paleo Challenge is way more lenient than a *real* whole 30 type of thing or whatever. Here are my rules (apparently):
- feta cheese is okay
- homemade dressings are overrated
- nitrate-free deli meats are legit
- cutting back on fruit is kind of optional
- dark chocolate must be consumed at least every-other-day
I still need to clean my oven.
That is turkey sausage that I found at Fresh Market. This meal was epic. I had it for dinner that night and lunch the next day. I had to eat two whole boats of it, plus a side salad that looked a lot like this:
My stainless steel insulated Camelbak died, so I replaced it.
I had to get plastic because there were no metal ones. And because it was a freaking awesome color!
Burger Life is a great place to eat paleo! Get “mixed greens” instead of a bun–ta-daaa! Also, they make their balsamic vinaigrette in house. Which means it might be a lesser evil. Not sure, though.
I’m going to talk supplements real quick! Here are my two most recent purchases and my reviews:
I got the After Shock for recovery. I have been hearing TONS of people singing its praises, so I decided to bite the bullet. I got berry, but I wanna try piña colada next. I’ve only used it one time so far–after pushing the sled on Wednesday night. I was definitely still sore, but I didn’t feel as “dead” (if that makes any sense at all).
Next, I got Hexapro cookies and cream flavor. I picked it because it has a “pretty good balance” of all the essential things you need. Everyone loves some BCAA’s with fiber! I had it for breakfast yesterday and mixed it with ice cubes and some coconut milk and it tasted like heaven on earth. I seriously felt like I was having ice cream. It’s not paleo, though, because it’s whey. Oh, and because it’s über processed. I don’t really care, though. I pick my battles. Woot-two special characters in one post!
I haven’t been fasting much this week. Might have made pumpkin granola again. Between that and my pretend ice cream, I am pretty stocked up on breakfasts.
Coming up: Doing the final GoRuck mini, reviewing some tea, and catching up on sleep!
