Whole30: 8

So an accidental revelation with my coffee. I happened to have a can of my regular Native Forest brand coconut milk open, having used some of it for my breakfast, so I poured it into my coffee. The texture is thinner than that of the Thai Kitchen coconut cream I’ve been using. I poured a 1:1 ratio of coconut milk to coffee, and whaddya know? It was pretty darn good. I’m not drinking much coffee, it’s probably the equivalent of a 1/2 cup, and that feels fine and sustainable. It didn’t wig me out and I got just the gentle kick I need to start my day. Yes, I realize these are the mad ramblings of a caffeine addict.

In general, I feel like I’m finally hitting my Whole30 stride. It’s easier to make decisions about food and meals. I don’t have to think about it as hard.

Other than that, I really need some exercise. I haven’t been prioritizing it this week and subsequently feel a bit frazzled and restless. Maybe I can get out for a trail run tomorrow. A swim this week would be nice too.

Breakfast: Primal Hot Cereal (almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, banana, coconut milk, cinnamon and cardamom whirled in a food processor) with huckleberries. Coffee with coconut milk and cinnamon.

Lunch: (Picnic lunch at the pumpkin patch with my daughter) 2 leftover paprika-thyme seasoned chicken legs, a few cashews, about 4 grapes.

Snack: 1/2 small local apple with almond butter.

Dinner: Bison stew with pumpkin, shallots, beef broth, and spices on a side of spinach sautéed with garlic in avocado oil. Bison browned in lard. (Will post recipe soon)

Too many almonds today…

  1. the breackfast sounds yummy, was it easy to digest ?

    • I’ve not had any issues with it, but ever since switching to this way of eating, my intestines have been humming along happily. I love it for a good change of pace from eggs.
