|Primal Wings with Guacamole Dip|
- Due to issues I was dealing with my first 2-weeks on the program, I don't feel as if my body was responding the way I hoped and,
- I initially approached this as a 30-day test as I didn't know if I'd be able to sustain a diet void of whole grains and legumes.
Fact is, once I made it to the 3rd week, it's been quite easy to maintain this diet. Because I'm following a Primal (versus Paleo) diet, I do have some leeway and the Nutritionist I hired to help me with this plan actually allowed for me to have a potato and/or sprouted brown rice 2x/week. I haven't even found that necessary and have managed to get enough carb intake through vegetables and fruit.
As such, I've decided to push my blood work out as I'm very curious to see the changes that are going to occur over the next month.
Today's menu includes:
Breakfast: Homemade chorizo stuffed in a red pepper with a fried egg on top.
Lunch: Buffalo chicken wings with Guacamole dip, along with a salad of romaine lettuce, raw spinach, carrots, cucumber, roasted red pepper with EVOO and a splash of lemon.
Snack: Apple with Almond butter
Dinner: Cajun shrimp with sauteed peppers, onions and Brussels sprouts followed by a dessert of fresh berries.
