It’s been a whole week on my Whole30! Today was a travel day for me, in the air and on the road back to Colorado. I had plenty of time to read and catch up on my podcasts which I am very grateful for. I stayed paleo all day too. Traveling is no excuse to eat like crap.
In the morning, I had two eggs and my chia pudding for breakfast. I passed everything in the airport, sat down, and got lost in Robb Wolf‘s book, The Paleo Solution. It helps quite a bit in understanding the why paleo is a superior lifestyle to follow. I say lifestyle because paleo really does go beyond a “diet”. Paleo looks at how humans were genetically born to be, and I can tell you one thing, it was not to eat fried food all day and work a stationary 9-5 job.
On the airplane, I continued reading and napped. I gave my onboard snack of honey-roasted peanuts and 100 cal snack chex mix to the lady sitting next to me. I had a handful of raw almonds I packed from home. When I got back to my apartment, though, I was starving. It was beginning to snow, so I didn’t want to go out anywhere, so I scavenged my pantry and fridge. I had been gone three weeks, so all I was left with was more almonds (I over did the almonds yesterday), a can of tuna, garlic, and frozen brussels sprouts. I opened the Tuna and sautéed the sprouts in some olive oil and garlic. I still went to bed very hungry and I woke up because of my stomach—ouch. Definitely not one of the best food days.
