This morning when we woke up it was storming out -- dark grey skies and thunder and lightening and rain beating down outside. It was the perfect excuse to lounge in bed for awhile. I don't think I got up until after 10! So lazy. So awesome.
By the time I did get up, shower and walk the dog, I was starving. I decided on scrambled eggs, sardines, and avocado. Don't knock it -- this combo is AWESOME.
Two scrambled eggs, half a can of sardines, and half an avocado. After I snapped the picture, I stirred it up into a big mess, sprinkled with sea salt, and devoured.
I spent most of the day cleaning our kitchen. We had some drawers and cupboards that were out of control. They're still not perfect, but at least the doors close now!
I didn't even think about food for the whole afternoon, but by dinner time, I was ready to eat something -- fast. I decided on stir fry, since we already had everything in the house. I used two chicken breasts that were already cooked, and added onion, broccoli, eggplant, and a few yellow beans.
I also made a delicious stir fry sauce to top this.
- 2 tbsp. of coconut aminos*
- 1 tbsp. sunbutter
- 1 tsp. garlic
- 1 tbsp. of clementine juice (orange juice would work, we just happened to have a bag of clementines in the fridge)
- 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper (or more if you like spicy)
* Soy and tamari sauce aren't allowed on the Whole30, so they recommend coconut aminos as a substitute. I really liked it! Kinda like soy sauce, but a bit sweeter, which is often what you want for stir-fries anyway.
For dessert, I had a bowl of banana soft-serve. I feel like I should try to limit how often I eat this -- it's delicious but maybe too delicious. Or at least, too big a sugar hit for what I'm supposed to be doing.
This was one frozen banana, a few frozen cherries, a splash of coconut milk and a tsp. of cocoa powder. Sooooo good.
I've been feeling sort of glum today so we're just taking it easy tonight. Watching season 3 of The Mentalist and drinking unsweetened iced tea and cuddling with Riley. It's good for what ails me.
