Drizzly morning again today, so I put off my planned C25K for a little while and made up breakfast instead.
Coconut flour waffles. Note, this is just my regular protein waffles with coconut flour subbing for oats.
I wish they weren’t so fragile. They are hard to get out of the waffle iron, which is why they are folded up. Tasty, though!
After the rained cleared out, I took a break from work, grabbed a protein drink and headed out to the track for C25K. I thought it would be a swamp, but it wasn’t that wet.
Week 3 consists of the warm up, then 90 second jog/90 second walk, then 3 minute jog/3 minute walk. Then repeat. This seemed much shorter, even though the total minutes of running was the same as last week. Go figure.
Came back for some lunch. Egg salad! It was a little weird to eat egg salad without any bread or crackers.
Jody asked if I was feeling any different after a week of no grains. I can answer a definite yes right now. It hasn’t been too terribly difficult either, which I thought it might be. No cravings for anything sweet or other bread stuff.
And there is chocolate in the house. It’s so weird. I do crave nuts, though, and have to be careful not to crack out on them. I will also nibble on potato chips if they are in the house (which they are now).
I do still have some sweet things, one being the dried pineapple, which I had today.
I love the dried pineapple. It tastes good and has such a nice texture to it. It goes surprisingly well with a latte (which is unsweetened).
Yesterday was sweet quinoa for breakfast. Today I used up the rest of the cooked quinoa for a savory dinner. I sauteed some broccoli, then threw in the quinoa with some feta cheese and a few splashes of soy sauce.
Not bad for a throw together meal and surprisingly filling. A little high on sodium, though. More than I usually have.
After finishing up work, John and I pedaled up the street for a little coffee!
This cafe closes at 8 pm, so it’s always an early night there.
