I was craving McDonalds nuggets, I’m not going to lie. I did manage to avoid taking that route with this paleo version:
3/4 cup Shredded coconut
1 lb chicken breast
Add seasoning and coconut to gallon sized ziplock and mix. One at a time place each chicken breast in the bag and shake until coated.
Bake for 40 mins on 350
For the sauce I used raw honey and prepared Dijon mustard in approximately equal parts. Remember that sugar is sugar so don’t go crazy just because it’s technically paleo 🙂
More than a week of headaches, not being able to workout, being exhausted, I gave up. I was asleep by 7:30 every night. What did I learn? I can say no to treats when I’m out. Planning is everything. detox during the holidays isn’t very fun.
I did lose 1.5 lbs, but more importantly my stomach flattened out. What I realized is that some things I might be eating cause bloating on a regular basis. Time to trouble shoot my diet.
Breakfast: coconut pancake, 1/4 c applesauce, 1/3 sliced banana, 2 eggs, chicken sausage
Lunch: this tasty salad
Dinner: pork, mixed vegetables
Today was paleo thanksgiving with our CrossFit team and members. I look forward to it every year! Unfortunately I had to babysit most of the day for a friend in town for a wedding so I missed everything but the appetizers.
Breakfast: Coconut pancakes, chicken sausage, 1/3 banana, 2 eggs
Lunch : pork shoulder, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, string cheese, 1/2 apple with almond butter
Dinner: shrimp cocktail, coconut flour muffin, and a fail of bacon wrapped dates…. Why are they so irresistible?
So I’ve had a headache the entire challenge. The advice was drink lots of water and remember that it will pass. I have only made it through one workout since I started. I’m what you call a serious sugar burner 🙂 After some discussion with my fellow crossfitters I think it’s time to add a few things back so I can get this show back on the road. I can’t keep going to bed at 7:30, ha ha.
Also when the leader of the pack said if the temporary discomfort is too much go back to what you were doing, which i think was supposed to be some sort of reverse psychology. All it made me realize is that I had planned to go back to my previous diet afterward and I’m not looking to change my life. I’m just competitive and liked the word “challenge.”
We were out and about today so nothing too interesting
Breakfast: coconut pancakes with applesauce, eggs, chicken sausage
Snack: boiled eggs and nut butter, sweet potato chips
Lunch: pork shoulder, salsa, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots
Dinner/snack: avocado, pork, root veggie chips, tangerine, 1/2 cheese stick
Hot strawberries over coconut pancakes, chicken sausage, eggs.
lunch and dinner was chicken and frozen vegetables
almond butter and warm berries over pancakes with boiled egg and avocado
After this breakfast I took a short nap 🙂
post WoD chicken and acorn squash
This was my first post WoD squash that I actually deserved. It was the first time since the challenge started that I had the energy to actually work out.
chicken, olives, garlic, and artichoke over greens
I was still hungry after lunch so I had this tasty salad!
zucchini with chicken and chicken sausage with no sugar added pizza sauce
Something quick with things we already had prepared. I made the toddler man a pizza with the same ingredients on a leftover pancake and with some cut up string cheese.
