Tanya's Whole 30 to Triathlon Blog


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! What a great community we have here! I am truly feeling the love with this group. Anyway, I am doing a triathlon on Sept 8. Today is August 1st and my first day of Whole30.

This morning I had a kale, mushroom and tomato frittata (put too much kale in it, but it was still good). I topped it with avocado and salsa.

For snack I had a cup of black coffee, raw almonds and a small amount of dried apples. It helped me because I was feeling a bit nauseated today. I think it had something do with that bottle of sparkling wine and ice cream that I ate last night as my last hurrah.

For lunch I ate some grilled london broil strips, and grilled eggplant that I made last night in preparation for today.

For dinner, I made a stir-fry like nomnompaleos emergency protein http://nomnompaleo.com/post/4360193712/emergency-protein-a-k-a-garbage-stir-fry. It had onions, Julienned carrots and zucchini (they looked like noodles) ginger, garlic, mushrooms, baby spinach, coconut aminos, red pepper, five-spice powder and 2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef from trader joes. I made it thinking it was too much, and I would have leftovers, but the two men in my house finished it completely! They commented on feeling engorged like a tick afterwards. Oh well It was REALLY good, and I put tons of fresh ginger and green onions for a teriyaki-inspired taste.

I may snack on fruit tonight. I have been paleo/primal for a year and a half, except for I love cheese and ice cream. So the biggest challenge is the dairy and the sugar. And, I am training for a triathlon.

Take care!
