What I Ate Wednesday: 21 Day Fix with Paleo and Gluten Free Meals (2/10/16)

This week has been really busy with some unexpected surprises, but I wanted to make sure I posted my WIAW so that it can hopefully inspire you all to have some healthy meals and keep up with my goal of regular posting!

I was looking at some of Diane Sanfilippo's posts on Instagram, and she had some pictures of avocado toast, which looked so delicious! She uses Canyon Gluten Free bread, but my grocery store didn't have it, so I got Udi's gluten-free millet-chia bread. Gluten free bread is tiny, and the serving size on the package was 2 pieces, so I counted it as one carb serving. I toasted the bread and topped it with mashed avocado, tomatoes, and some pink Himalayan salt, and put some eggs on the side for protein.

Wednesday was a big day for me, so instead of saving my Shakeology for the afternoon, I had it in the morning. Yes, this is Shakeology, not a big bowl of ice cream! I've been playing with the ratios and methods of mixing it up, and I've found 1 cup almond or coconut milk, 1 cup frozen fruit, and 1 scoop Shakeology blended using my immersion blender makes it more like ice cream. The same method using while running the blender for a few minutes makes it more like a mousse. This was vanilla Shakeology, unsweetened coconut milk, and strawberries. Valentine's Day is coming up, so I put it in a romantic tea cup.

Lunch was a quick salad of leftover ground beef seasoned with chili powder, coriander, garlic powder, and onion powder on top of field greens and grape tomatoes. The dressing is homemade salsa ranch: equal parts mayo, Greek yogurt, and salsa and seasoned to taste with rice wine vinegar, garlic and onion powders, dried dill, and salt and pepper.

Mid-afternoon I had an apple with 2 teaspoons of sunflower seed butter. Please forgive how awful the jar looks, but this is the brand I've been using.

Dinner was a new recipe that will be posted soon!I had 1 roasted chicken thigh with zucchini, yellow summer squash, white sweet potatoes, herbs, and sun dried tomatoes.

I was dragging a little after a tough day of using lots of brain power and exercising (The Master's Hammer and Chisel: Chisel Balance) so I had an extra serving of protein with some Greek yogurt, thawed frozen cherries, vanilla extract, and stevia. Not pretty, but so tasty.
