Primal 21 Day Challenge: Day 19

Day 19:

How was your Thanksgiving dinner? What primal meals did you make? I made...

 This is a Cranberry Orange Salsa with Cream Cheese.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Pecans.

My husband made the turkey and it was Deeeeevine! He used a method called spatchcocking where you take out the back bone and then lye the turkey flat on the pan. This ensures it cooks evenly. Then cook it at 450 degrees for about 80 minutes. It was so juicy! 

Tomorrow try another max reps workout to see how you have improved from the beginning:)

Exercise:

Find your maximum repetitions of...

-Pushups
-Sit-Ups
-Pull-Ups or Chair Dips
-Plank Holds
-Squats

Meal/Snack Ideas: use your leftovers from Thanksgiving!

Breakfast- scramble eggs up with leftover meats/veggies.

Lunch- turkey wraps.

Dinner- use remaining meat for a soup or another shepherd's pie.

Snacks- leftover sweet potatoes or veggies.
