What I Ate Wednesday - #1 - Whole30

It's my first time to join in the What I ate Wednesday posts - but I'm not sure why!! I take pics of my food every single day!

At our house, we are following the Whole30 way of eating, except today is actually day 45 or so. You can read all about that here. 

So if you are familiar with Paleo, it's like Paleo+. Nothing processed, no dairy, no grains, etc.

I LOVE IT!  Below is a look at my typical day:

Breakfast: 8am, baked sweet potatoes, roasted carrots with cinnamon and an organic hamburger patty. Yes. This is an odd breakfast, I know. But by 8am I've already been up almost 4 hours and worked out so I am hungry! 

Lunch: 1pm, roasted chicken thigh, more sweet potatoes and cauliflower cilantro rice.

Dinner: 6pm, (we actually haven't eaten yet, but this is what we are having and this is from another night), salmon filet and a HUGE spinach salad.

So what you do not see is snacks. When you follow the Whole30 way of eating, you really don't snack. You just are not hungry. Sometimes, I will have some fruit (few blueberries, half an orange) with my breakfast and dinner.

Occasionally, we make fruit smoothies with chia seeds and coconut milk. (frozen or fresh no sugar added fruit)

So that's it! My food today and a typical day for this paleo girl.

I'm also blog hopping with Fitness Blondie! The Hump Day Blog Hop

I LOVEEEEEEEEEEE your food choices. Those sweet potato fries are bomb! I don't like breakfast food a lot so I could eat like that everyday.
