5:45 - spoonful peanut butter (peanuts & salt only)
Dinner 7:15 - chicken Cobb salad with avocado (from Panera), no cheese, no tomatoes, with balsamic vinegar dressing, unsweet tea
From about 10-12 I munched on grapes, pecans & peanut butter (peanuts & salt only) and drank coffee.
I realized tonight how little water I've had today. And how much fruit I've had (I think because I've been staying at Honey's and its more readily available than at our house...). I would still really love a diet soda! I think that's what's I'm looking forward to most.
Mike & I talked since he's been gone about continuing to eat clean once the Whole30 is over..."to an extent." Mike will always want his pizza & I'll want my diet soda & we'll both want birthday cake on birthdays, but I know we're both making better food choices & will continue to do so.
Side note: Mike cheated & had a piece of bread with his lunch ... & it immediately made home feel sick...(that's what he gets for being a cheater)
Breakfast 8:50 - 2 thin pieces sausage, 2 scrambled eggs with salt & pepper, large handful of grapes, 2 mugs coffee
Lunch 12:20 - hibachi chicken with all veggies (no rice), mustard & soy sauce, water (from Joy of Tokyo)

Being at Honey's with no Kits or Lara bars made me miss them (& the chocolate covered protein bars that I usually have in my breakfast mix)
3:00 - coffee (black)
5:15 - mixed almonds & pistachios
Dinner 8:30 - Steak fajitas (no tortillas, no cheese, rice or beans) lettuce, 2 tbsp guacamole, margarita (I know this was a cheat, but it was SO worth it). *It's not as hard as you think to pass up chips & dip at a Mexican joint as you may think!

11:15 - coffee with coconut milk, handful walnuts

Once again we passed up birthday cake...11 days, 11 days...we can do this!
5:00 - handful of mixed dried fruit & nuts, unsweet tea
Dinner 8:00 - 7oz hamburger patty w spicy mustard, side salad w avocado vinaigrette, water
9-11:00 - 1/2 cup cranberry cocoa almonds (these were a perfect treat to end my meal with while not blowing anything with an actual dessert - my desire for dessert was curbed with a much healthier treat!), 2 mugs coffee with coconut milk
Dinner 8:45 - pork chops with a cinnamon, cumin & coriander dry rub and spicy mustard, cauliflower (steamed with olive oil & pepper), apple with peanut butter (peanuts & salt only), water
10:25 - green smoothie (2 cups spinach, 1.5 bananas, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa) *so good, but needs some tweaking, followed by coffee with coconut milk
Day twenty one
Holy cow! I'm still super stuffed from that ginormous smoothie last night! Once it's tweaked to perfection I'll definitely be having it as a breakfast smoothie (maybe with protein powder added).

Lunch 12:30 - 4 slices (regular) bacon, 2 eggs cooked in raw butter with 1/3 red bell pepper), 1/2 apple, 1/2 pear, coffee (black)

Dinner 8:00 - green beans, 1 small scoop homemade mashed potatoes, country fried streak (HUGE cheat, but Mike's g-am fixed us dinner!), fruit salad, 1/2 small piece homemade cake with homemade icing and coconut (I know, I know ... Another HUGE cheat--what were we to do?!)
10:25 - small handful walnuts, apple, coffee with coconut milk
