What's on My Plate
I thought since it is Day 20 of my Boot Camp, an update would be appropriate. Above is a photo of my dinner tonight. Let me tell you, that is a HUGE honkin' salad on a dinner-sized plate. I can not believe the sheer quantity of food I am able to consume eating like this. In addition, I ate a baked sweet potato, totally plain. I am really thriving on this whole mostly vegan, mostly raw eating style. I occasionally indulge in some brown rice, or steamed kale, or a baked sweet potato, but the vast majority of what I am eating is raw.
Here's how I'm doing after 20 days of October:
--30 Day Shred Workouts? Yep, 20/20 days. Today was day 10 of Level 2. Level 3, here I come! I've also walked almost every day.
--Gluten free? I had one piece of my homemade bread early in the month. and 2 bites of a pizza that smelled amazing. That's all.
--Dairy free? I've had precious little in just a few things. I would guess a total of 2-3 ounces of dairy in 20 days.
--Vegan? I ate a little homemade tuna salad one night, but did not like how it made me feel. I also ate a few pieces of chicken in some stir-fry I made. Other than that and the small amount of dairy mentioned above, I've managed okay.
--Mostly raw? I would say I am eating 80-90% of my foods raw.
--Caffeine? Zero. Zip. Nada!
All-in-all, this month's Boot Camp is going well. I'm hoping to continue with the plan and finish strong.
Coming soon: knitting update! (I know you are all on the edge of your seats!)
