Whole 30 Food Diary Week 3

Week 3 saw some good days as well as a few bad days! On Thursday I succumbed to my desire for something a little different (i.e., not a fruit, veggie and/or meat product) and had a bowl of cereal. Gasp! I know; and the funny thing is that I have not eaten a bowl of cereal in so long, but it was oh so delicious. Granted I had a bowl of Cracklin' Oat Bran, and not Captain Crunch!

I forgot to mention last week that I have allowed myself a glass of wine (ok, 2) once a week. This is not too different than my pre-Whole 30 Challenge philosophy. But, prior to the challenge I had been allowing myself to have a glass of wine 1-3 days/week, so I have cut back to my preferred weekly intake.

We all know my desires to nick my coffee habit have simply been sidelined. In some of the pictures below you will see the evidence of my coffee habit!

And I finally ate my last Cookies & Cream Quest bar in hopes of preventing myself from snacking on this instead of a Whole 30-approved snack. On Tuesday, I actually ate a Quest bar and apple for lunch, which was not the best decision on any eating plan (only because it is more of a snack than a meal replacement). Which directly leads me to meal planning! I have been really good at planning dinners every week, but not so good with lunches. Because of this, I started planning my lunches as well as dinners. Confession - this began on Friday, lol. I am hoping this will start working in my favor. I figure breakfast can still be thrown together, but my lunches need to be a little more thought out, or I go for the Quest + Apple combo or apple + nut butter combo; both of which are better options, but not perfect.

Paleo Chicken Fried Steak & Cauliflower Mash
We have been eating cauliflower mash as a replacement for masked potatoes for some time now! Typically, I paired the mash with my fresh pesto, which contains parmesan cheese. So last week was our first attempt of making cauliflower mash without pesto, and it was delicious. On a whim, we added one bad of frozen cauliflower with a fresh head of cauliflower, and it was a game changer!!!!

McDonal's had free coffee in our area, and how could we not take the offer for free coffee! Please tell me I am not the only person that thinks McDonald's has some pretty good coffee! I also like Dunkin Donuts, but not their actual donuts, ha. Coach Kemp thinks I am weird because I don't like their donuts; I prefer Krispy Kreme.

So anyways, I felt kind of odd being that lame person to request free coffee without making a purchase. My order, therefore, was two free coffees and two hash browns :) I figure they are potatoes, lol!
