Some days I just feel I eat way too much, and then there are those days where I can't get enough. I still have issues with holding on to my calories for night time consumption! Why do I do that?
The pups too want to know why I don't give them oodles of calories as well!! They could eat a 28# bag in one sitting and not care!
Breakfast was no different today then what it has been - so no picture. Lunch, no picture but different! I tried to do a banana sunflower butter pancake. It cam out more like a thick sauce, so I used it to top some pork and lamb sausages with broccoli slaw. I have to say though, it looked really gross, but tasted great!
Dinner we went to Noodles & Co - I had the Chinese Chop Salad with pork -minus the dressing and wontons. D had the Japanese Pan Noodles with Chicken.
After dinner we went to REI - we got our dividend check and were anxious to spend! We just got some staples - Gu's, Nuun and a bandanna - I know, random things!
How did I do on the 21-Day Sugar Detox? Not as good as I really hoped! The downfall happened last week when I really needed to up my carb intake for all the racing I was doing. Really, the races were not long, it was the intensity. I craved more sugar and would have it at night more than during the day. It probably wasn't the best time to do the detox, since I couldn't really keep it going the whole time, maybe summer? or just before. I do have a half marathon next month. I'm actually running that for my Sunday long run (13.1 miles).
This is a combined weekend post. It's Sunday evening, the end of the detox officially (which was only a partial detox!). I have to say that I still kept my sugar's low. This mornings breakfast was the remainder of my pork and Mediterranean lamb sausage, with a blend of mixed greens and cauliflower. I have adopted adding Nikki's Coconut Butter to my coffee - I have used Vanilla Cake Batter and Hazelnut Brownie Batter. Both are fabulous! If you go to Civilized Caveman Cooking, there is a coupon code for % off and you get to see some of the fabulous creations he has there!! I have made his paleo banana bread and it is the best ever and the next time I make them I am going to do muffins and drizzle chocolate on top!
After my shorter run (10 miles) I went to Plum Market and bought some local artisan chocolate and a rotisserie chicken - which became my lunch - the wings and drumsticks. I finished the afternoon by making veggies for the week and dessert for tomorrow.
Passover dessert is Chocolate Flour-less Cake. It's an easy recipe of Eggs, Organic Chocolate (no soy lecithin) and butter. I will take pictures tomorrow at dinner and post the whole recipe.
Well, winding down for the night, will come up with more tomorrow.... till then!
