Clean Eating Challenge: Day 33

Day 33

 

 

Well, today was a bit of of a Clean Eating roller coaster! It started out pretty good, but quickly went down hill, only to get back on track for dinner, and then totally off track for dessert.

I’m feeling like I probably should have stopped this challenge after day 30…I seem to have really been struggling since then! Oh well, 7 days to go…I can do it!

Anyways, here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast – Refrigerator Oats I got his recipe from my sister. If you are interested in a delicious, no hassle, healthy breakfast, click here for the recipe. It definitely tastes a lot better than it looks!

Lunch – Big Mac Combo– yep, I figured if your gonna do it, do it right! Man was it good. However, 20 minutes later I had a bit of an upset stomach and a headache. Won’t be doing that again for a while!

Dinner – Corn on the Cob, Grilled Chicken and a Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Habanero Cheddar Cheese. I actually forgot to take a picture of my plate…these were the leftovers. Oops!

Lunch – Starbucks Protein Bistro Box – lately this has been my go to for lunch on the run. With white cheddar cheese, multi grain muesli bread, honey peanut butter spread, grapes, apple slices and a hard boiled egg, it’s perfect!

Snack – 1/2 Aloha Granola and 3/4 Greek Yogurt

Dinner – Eat Clean Cobb Salad – this recipe serves 4 but I adapted it for a single serving. I also subbed out the blue cheese for goat cheese and totally skipped the dressing. Oh, and I have no idea what jicama is, so I skipped it too!

Breakfast – Oatmeal Pancake with Fresh Strawberries.
Oh how I have missed you oatmeal pancake…Since starting the Green Smoothie Challenge on June 1st, I have pretty much been having smoothies to start the day. But today, shy on smoothie ingredients, I resorted to my  most favourite  breakfast ever! The Eat Clean Oatmeal Pancake.

Day 30

 

 

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 30 days! Despite a few slip-ups here and there, I’m quite impressed with how I’ve done so far. Sticking to something for 40 days is hard…only 10 to go!

Breakfast – in sticking with June’s Green Smoothie Challenge, this morning I had a Strawberry Kiwi Green Smoothie. To be honest, it wasn’t my favourite, maybe because all the fruit was fresh so the smoothie seemed a bit runny…I don’t know… Oh well, here’s what I put in it

3 cups baby spinach
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 kiwi
1 cup almond milk
2 tbsp ground flax

 

 

 

 

Lunch – an Almond Butter Wrap. In a rush, with not much in the fridge, this was all I could come up with. 1 tbsp Almond Butter on a small Whole Wheat Wrap. Sorry, no picture…totally forgot as I scrambled out the door!

Dinner – leftover Steak with a Slice of Cheddar Cheese and 7 Kashi Pita Crisps – Zesty Salsa

Lunch – Santa Fe Salad with Grilled Chicken– today Tanner and I had lunch with my friend Pam. We went to Boston Pizza and both Pam and I enjoyed a salad off of their Summer Menu. It was so good, and big, I could barely finish it!

Dinner – Green Smoothie #20 – Strawberry Grape
. Since I was still full from lunch, dinner was going to be a Green Smoothie and a leftover piece of steak…after the smoothie, I didn’t have room for steak, so dinner just ended up being a smoothie, good think I added a scoop of protein to it!

Ingredients:
2 cups baby spinach
1 cup green grapes
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp ground flax

20120620-082426.jpg

Snack – 9 Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – I just needed a little something…maybe it’s because I didn’t have a proper dinner…who knows, but these almonds sure hit the spot!
