DAY 11: Thursday, September 24th

Tomorrow is Day 11 which means the end is near!!! Just 10 days...
Did you all enjoy the podcast from yesterday? 

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- egg frittata with green olives, spinach or other greens, and seasoned with lemon juice/olive oil/salt/pepper
 

Lunch- taco salad
On Saturday for the "forage", I went to Moe's and ordered a taco salad with grass-fed beef, onions, peppers, pico, guacamole, black olives and cilantro:)

Dinner- steak with Brazilian salsa 
So, a long time ago my husband lived in brazil for a couple years and I love it because he has some great dishes up his sleeve! For our dinner a few nights ago he made a type of salsa to go on top of our grilled steak. Finely dice tomatoes, green peppers and onions (all about equal parts or to your liking) and then douse it with white wine vinegar. Let it sit for about an hour or so and then serve on top of...well...anything, really! 

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).
