This week was a little different than the last two weeks. I was craving my old comfort foods really bad. I almost ordered a fresh pizza while doing a demo at Whole Foods. The good news is, instead of ordering that pizza, I bought some cage free organic chicken breasts. I put the chicken breast in a casserole dish, added potatoes, carrots, zucchini, and onion. Took a couple spoonful’s of Pederson’s No Sugar Bacon grease over it and baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. It was tasty but more importantly, I wobbled but didn’t crack. The toughest part of the challenge is preparing my meals for the work week. I don’t have a problem with breakfast or dinner, it’s the lunch that I am having a hard time with. My job takes me on the road a lot. Preparing filling meals during this time is a challenge. My lunches have been bananas, an apple, walnuts, and almonds. I am craving cookies, chocolate, and other sweets as well but I haven’t picked up any of these items. I do know this; every dinner I’ve cooked has been excellent. I still cook the Pederson’s No Sugar Chorizo, onion, yellow and red bell peppers, tomatoes, and avocado on top is by far my favorite meal. I can eat this everyday and not get sick of it. I am happy with my results. I feel so much better, I am thinking clearer, I feel my digestive track is working better, I actually sleep better and have been told I am not snoring anymore, and the obvious, I am losing weight. When I first started the Whole30 challenge, I had a terrible diet. One thing that the Whole30 challenge has made me conscious about is what I put in my body. I think I will keep eating the Whole30 way long after the challenge is over. My job at Pederson’s is brand awareness. The main part of my jobs is doing store demos. When doing the store demos, I frequently talk to customers that are either trying the Whole30 challenge or just eating paleo. Knowing what I know now, I can really relate to what the customers are looking for.
