Day 1 of 30 days Whole Foods-No Crap Challenge

It is Saturday the 1st day of the Whole-Foods No Crap Challenge!  BTW!  I posted a meal menu sample yesterday to give you an idea of what I will be eating and how often.  Someone messaged me saying: WOW there's a lot of food on there! LOL!  I eat a lot, I hate feeling hungry... It's about making better choices, quality over quantity just remember that and you'll be set!

 I swear I have some sort of internal alarm that wakes me up at 6 am every morning even on weekends.  I did a little of organizing around the house, checked my emails, had my daily detox and a few cups of  Yogi Chai tea.  I did my scheduled Insanity workout at 7am.  
Meals so far:
For my Breakfast-post workout meal I had a Green Protein Smoothie!
In my smoothie:
1 cup of spinach
1 tbsp. of Spirulina
1/2 of a grapefruit (not my shiniest hour)
1/2 cup of raspberries
1/2 cup of Unsweetened Almond Breeze
1/2 cup of Yogi Decaf Green Tea
4 ice cubes
a pinch of cinnamon

Warning: Grapefruit and Spirulina =  a not so great combo.
 
I was super hungry an hour after having my smoothie.  So I headed to my kitchen and scrambled 4 egg-whites with jalapenos and a turkey slice and 1/2 of a cucumber, sliced.  There's also a sprouted Ezekiel toast under all that egg.  I did pour Joe's homemade hot sauce (6 different peppers, vinegar, water, and raw tomato paste) and organic mustard on top.  Totally optional, I'm just not a fan of eggs, believe it or not.
Doing good so far with, no cafe cravings!
Did you workout today?  What did you have for b-fast?
Snack: 12 almonds
Lunch: Assembly only Albacore Salad
 In my salad:
2 cups of green beans
1 can of Albacore Tuna (in water)
2 tbs. of diced white onion
1/2 of a small tomato
1/4 of a cucumber sliced
2 tbsp. of jalapenos
6 GF flaxseed crackers
a sprinkle of No MSG garlic powder

Snack: A serving of carrots, 6 lean turkey slices and 1 tbsp. of homemade hummus.
Dinner: 1/2 cup of Brown rice, a serving of shrimp, 1 cup of broccoli.
 This meal was ready in 10 minutes, thanks to advance prepping.  I used my microwave!  For the shrimp I microwaved them for 1.30 minutes, d-veined them.  Seasoned the shrimp with NO MSG lemon pepper and cayenne pepper seasoning.  Then threw back in the microwave for another 1.30 minutes.  Brown rice and broccoli were prepped in advance, just preheating needed for those.

That is it for today!  I hope you all have a great Saturday evening.

  1. Hmm I don't like grapefruit so I'm sure I wouldn't like that smoothie either. The egg combo looks yummy though! Good luck with the challenge!
