Paleo Day 8/30
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
An overall successful and not too hungry day.
Ran 2.5 miles in the morning with Rambler (my dog) and a friend and her dog.
Breakfast was local sausage from the market, 2 eggs, and mandarin oranges.
Lunch ended up being more of a late morning snack because I was hungry and I needed to take my calcium supplement with food. So, I had the last slice (maybe two slices?) of my paleo pizza from Friday. Decent, and filling.
Drank lots of water, had some walnuts. Also some frozen cherries as a snack.
After work Rambler and I tried to go for a 4 mile run but it was very warm and humid, and he's still adjusting to the heat again. I was concerned for his safety so we ran 2 fairly fast and walked the other 2. I'm glad I took it easy on him 'cause he took a while to recover after we got home.
Dinner was a smashing hit. I often use my runs or walks as a chance to brainstorm what to make for dinner, especially on nights when Bryan closes at work and I am on my own. I love to experiment!
I made honey sesame chicken with a serrano balsamic reduction sauce, served in Boston lettuce leaves (from the farmer's market!) with sliced tomatoes and chopped avocado. OMG so good and satisfying. Sweet, spicy, crunchy, creamy, fresh, juicy - it hit all the right palate pleasing spots! I was also so hungry post-workout that I finished off the little bag of raw carrot cookies I'd bought over the weekend while I waited on dinner to be ready.
I really need to get more of those! :)
