The Clean Slate Day 11

2014/01/18 by nikkiledford

Another gorgeous day in Southern California.

Day 11 was not a completely “clean” slate day. I had a bit of chocolate (which has sugar… a no-no), but I made a choice to indulge a bit and that’s fine by me.

I made some of paleOMG’s delicious coconut cups out of her cookbook (and on her website) and I definitely needed to “taste test”. If you’re looking for a sweet treat that is also incredibly clean AND easy to make, these are perfect!

I also had the opportunity to get outside for a nice long walk and get my hot yoga fix!

Clean Eats

Breakfast: Garlic Butternut Squash, hard-boiled egg, and a Real Stick Jerky,

Snack: Chocolate Coconut Cup (similar to this), I added peppermint oil.

Lunch: Acai Bowl with kale, protein powder, coconut flakes, and cacao nibs

Dinner: CIlantro Hemp Pesto with Kelp Noodles (Chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, kale, red bell pepper) and a couple of hawaiian chocolate macadamias for dessert!

Other beverages: decaf almond milk latte… LOTS of WATER!

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
