I started the morning with a shake, which I do often because it is an easy way to sneak in some extra greens in my breakfast. I kept it simple today with just a protein powder and some spinach. Also, I added my pro-biotic and fish oil liquid to my shake. Once I got to work I had one travel mug full of organic coffee with one tablespoon of coconut oil. I add the coconut oil per the recommendation of my naturopath because I have extremely low triglycerides (23). Coconut oil is also known to be good for immune health and increasing energy levels.
Lunch was leftover chili from the previous night. The chili is simply made with ground beef, a red and yellow pepper, onion, jalapeno, diced tomatoes and lots of spices for flavor. I added half an avocado to get some extra healthy fat in to help me feel full for most of my afternoon. Also, I had a handful of almonds that I soaked a couple of days ago for 24 hours and removed the skin. Then I tossed them in olive oil, sea salt and rosemary and baked on 400 F for 40 minutes.
My afternoon snack was peppered bacon with kale. I cooked the bacon in an iron skillet and then added the kale. The grease from the bacon gives the kale a delicious flavor. This is one of my favorite snacks.
Dinner consisted of my version of chicken fajitas. It was just a grilled chicken breast with a red and green pepper and onion served in a lettuce wrap and topped with Wholly Guacamole. It is a great weeknight meal because it is so quick and easy.
After dinner, I had a nice glass of Merlot to help me relax. It was a great day! What did you eat?
