Whole30: Day 1


Here’s a recap of Day One of my Whole30 program:

Breakfast

2 apples
1 cup of coffee with Almond milk
1 can Coconut Water

Lunch

3 small chicken thighs, boneless, skinless (roasted in the oven with a little salt & pepper)
Sautéed vegetables: 1 sweet onion, 4-5 sticks celery, 1 big carrot, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Dessert: Raw Vegan Cookies (see recipe below)

Dinner

Raw Vegan Cookies & Earl Grey tea with freshly squeezed lemon juice

Workout of the Day
5k Run (Colour Me Rad race)

1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup + a little more unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Almond milk and coconut flour to regulate consistency (optional)

Blend everything (except the Little extra shredded coconut) in a blender/food processor/bullet.  If it’s too dense, add almond milk and pulse again.  If it’s too “runny” add some coconut flour.  Make sure you don’t completely blend.  Chunks are ok.  Place the dough in a bowl and add the shredded coconut.  Once the dough is thick but sticky, shape balls and roll them into shredded coconut.  Keep in the fridge.
