I decided that I would go to the grocery store to find some almond flour but it looks like they were all sold out which was upsetting, but I was still happy I got to casually chat with a personal trainer I do not know how long we chatted, but I do know the sun was setting when I went into the store and it was very dark when I came out. We got into an interesting discussion about carb cycling and grain free diets and how beneficial they can be. I will spare you the boring details of the whole conversation and tell you they are a great way to detox your body; especially since most of us (only me) tried to eat the whole thanksgiving pie. I know when you carb cycle you can burn fat but detox the whole body from a grain free diet. I may half to make this an every other week routine it can be pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
I had left over salad from dinner that I had for lunch today food always tastes better the next day..
I had to improvise with my almond flour pancakes I used almond butter instead they came out pretty good I had two of course one disappeared from the plate; I also try to make a spinach and yellow bell pepper egg frittata didn’t come out to well.
When I woke I didn’t feel like eating at all then after my workout I felt a hunger pain that just did not want to go away. I wanted to eat the whole kitchen if I could; thank heavens that I had fruit lying around because I almost had a relapse on my low carb challenge this week. I guess that is why they tell you to “have a light snack before you work out (at least now I know)”; I doubt if I will remember to eat the majority of the time before I work out but I will try even if it requires planning.
The fruit bowl I ate today was very sweet like a big bowl of candy I used 3 persimmons, 1 apple, and 1 dry fig I love figs they are so good. I know I did not post my low carb dinner last night, I got home from work so late and by the time I was done making dinner all the light left my house. I did have leftovers for lunch today so I will be able to show you what I ate last night…
