A Spring Challenge: Day 11

Day 11 Agenda:
  1. Complete a favorite aerobic exercise and invite someone to do it with you. Do your exercise for 30-60 minutes and with a heart rate of about 50-75% of your maximum.
  2. Limit the carbs you eat all day. This is to get us ready for the following day {Day 12} where we will practice intermittent fasting. After a normal primal dinner on Day 11 you will fast for as long as you can until you feel famished or energy depleted. Record how many hours you went without food.

Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- sausage patties with cooked vegetables and eggs.

Lunch- a few months ago we were provided lunch at my hemodialysis training. I was very weary of this and brought healthy snacks as I was unsure how primal the food would be. But, surprisingly I foraged well! Take a look below...


 I opted out of the pasta salad and grabbed grilled chicken with a heaping side of green salad.

We were served tacos, SO I made a taco salad complete with fresh salsa, guacamole, greek yogurt {for the sour cream} and beef! 

Dinner- stir fry veggies {you know, the veggies that are sitting in your fridge and you're thinking, "man, I need to toss these soon!} and add meat on the side.

Snacks- kale chips (sprinkle sea salt and olive oil over small pieces of kale on a baking pan and pop in the oven at 350 until crispy).
