This is what I had for dinner and this is what I had for lunch:
The featured picture dinner is organic chicken breast pan fried in coconut oil. I dredged the chicken in a saucer of about 2 tsp’s organic paprika, 1 tsp organic ginger, 1/2 tsp organic onion powder, Himalayan salt and ground pepper (that spice mix was perfect, I will do that again), steamed organic broccoli with ghee, salt and pepper and fried organic mushrooms in ghee, salt and pepper. This was good.
I need to get adjusted to the idea of two meals per day rather than my customary three. I had three today. On days I go to the gym, I bring my breakfast with me, take the water class first and then eat. It puts that meal around 9 am. I either take, cereal with fruit and when I say cereal, I mean seeds and nuts. I had buckwheat (yes, its a seed), hemp hearts and chia seeds with Macadamia nuts, organic strawberries and coconut milk mixed with almond milk. I am proud to say, this was my first foray into the soaking nuts and seed world. I finally got over my fear of it and did it. It was not a big deal, however, it was gross, not the soaked seeds and nuts, but the teaspoon of salt I put in the water and forgot to rinse off. Yick, I ate it though, it was hard, but I did it……Salty! Then I read that in Ketosis, it is a good idea to up water intake (always mandatory) and increase salt to help avoid the Ketosis flu that happens in the first few weeks. I thought, well guess I’m being taken care of, extra salt. Or, I bring a salad, these are keep it simple meals I pack and bring to the gym. What I need to learn to do is not eat till I get home. Tough, I get home around 12 noon. Of course, that only makes the fast better but, I can I tolerate all that exercise on a fast. Guess we’ll find out Thursday.
