Today was an easy day for food. I had a few thoughts about the jelly beans in the cupboard, but only because I know they're there. I considered giving some to my kids but then thought "Why?". Habit I suppose.
I drank my coffee this morning, then did yoga as a warmup to my strength workout. Barbell, ass-to-the-grass squats and single leg calf raises today. 6 sets/5 reps.
Post workout meal: fruit that I rescued after my kids didn't eat it, egg whites & eggs scrambled, +veggie medley (cabbage, asparagus, mushroom, parsley & radish greens). I took it all outside and ate it on the deck.
Lunch: leftover beef curry from last night plus a bunch of spinach.
Dinner: green chicken burgers, mashed turnips & brussel sprouts. For the record, hubby ate one bite of the chicken patty and refused to eat more. To which I replied "whatever, you're on your own then". The two oldest ate without complaint, the 2yr old refused....but that's pretty typical for her :) They weren't the greatest thing I've ever made, but they weren't horrible. I probably used too much parsley & onion.
To make the patties I used a bit of fresh parsley, spinach and onion (chopped lightly in the food processor). Mixed that with the ground chicken and cooked in some olive oil.
I love the mashed turnips (as do the kids), hubs doesn't mind them either. Just know, you must use something like an immersion blender or food processor to "mash" them. A regular potato masher won't do the trick.
One thing I am finding out is that I'm really missing my chewing gum! I chewed it all.the.time. I decided to cut it out for the Whole30 as it contains aspartame. I chew gum while I workout and just about all day long. I'm adjusting, but it kind of sucks.
Hope your day was great!
