Paleo Challenge: Day 7

And on the 7th day we rested made lots of meat. After the recipe/shopping strategy session yesterday, today was the day to make it all. Super busy but productive day. About to get some shut eye so I can get as close to 8hrs of sleep as possible before getting up at 4:30 to hit the gym bright and early tomorrow.

On the menu for the week are Cobb salad with hard boiled egg, avocado, grilled chicken, bacon, and a little vinaigrette. Breakfast is acorn squash with some almond butter, cinnamon, and flaxseed meal. Morning snack will be sweet potato soufflé muffin (pureed sweet potato, whipped egg white, and a few spices). Afternoon snack will involve fruit!!!! Tomorrow we are allowed fruit!!!! Just 1 serving, but I will probably have a Lara Bar in the afternoon. Here are all the food prep pics. I saved the bacon grease to cook the butternut squash and green beans in for dinner tonight and then the lunch chicken for the week got cooked in it too. Seems pretty paleo to me to not waste resources 🙂

Here’s what I ate:
Breakfast
I was up at 5:30 this morning and managed a little coffee and actually had a small yogurt. I was in a pinch and had a little plain yogurt with almonds.

Lunch
Leftover filling from the chicken pot pies of last week with some extra veggies tossed in.

Afternoon Snack #1
Cashew Lara bar. So okay, I had a lite fruit — it is cashews and dates. But at least cashews were first on the ingredient list.

Afternoon Snack #2
Veggie chips

Dinner
This was one of the best meals I’ve had yet! So good!! Maple mustard chicken with green beans and butternut squash. The chicken recipe was from here and I can’t wait to have it tomorrow night too!

Tomorrow is weigh in and measurement day. We’ll see what 7 days has done.
