it's gluten free day! I added back gluten free grains today with a loaded up oatmeal bowl for breakfast (there are oats under there I promise 😋), coconut chicken and brown rice for lunch, and gluten free pasta with tomato sauce and ground beef for dinner. I'm definitely not feeling bad but I can definitely feel it... slightly more tired than usual, slightly bloated and less energy during my workout this afternoon (#tigerbloodnomore 😢). I think gluten free grains can be in my life but definitely need to happen in more moderation, not all day long 🤸
Well, we are right back to reality after an amazing trip. We saw a lot in the 3 days we were in Montana, and also ate a lot 😬😋Because that’s what vacation is all about, right? I didn’t go completely nuts or anything, but we ate out a lot (which means eating way more food than necessary) and I totally indulged on delicious things like ice cream and gluten free pizza. No regrets, but I was ready to get back to feeling like my normal self as soon as we landed in CA. I decide to share the 10 tips I use to get back on track after vacation on the blog! Summer is almost here and vacation season is upon us, so take some mental notes for the next time you come home needing a little re-set! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m baaaaaackkkk!! I’m returning so full of love and joy. Surfing for a week with some of the best people on the planet will do that. 🏄🏻♀️🏄🏻♀️🏄🏻♀️
The best whole30 advice for post vacation is to GET BACK TO IT. A mini reset is a great idea and that’s where I’m starting today with my #basicbreakfast
I didn’t plan or cook a single meal for myself and every bite was worth it in every sense of the word. The chef prepared primarily vegan food, some high quality protein, and gluten free options were often available. I ate way more grains and legumes than normal. Again, worth it. Surfing requires an incredible amount of stamina. I don’t have a post vacation food hangover and that’s probably because I ate very little sugar, no alcohol (!!), and was insanely active. But still: today I’m right back to my regularly scheduled eating so I can keep feeling and looking my best.
Day one of a @whole30 five day reset 💪🏼 Need to get back into the swing of being healthy, this past week wasn’t necessarily the best 🙁 Gained a few pounds back, but you can’t dwell on the past and you gotta move forward! Also pretty psyched that I decided to sign up for the @sweat app and am starting #bbgstronger tonight! For those who do both @orangetheory and bbg stronger, how do you set up your schedule?
A vital part of whole 30 is slowly reintroducing different food groups to see how they affect your body. I'm doing the slow reintro- new group of food for one day and then back to whole 30 for 2 days. today is my legume day; I had peanut powder in my smoothie this morning, edamame and @eatbanza chick pea pasta for lunch 🍽️ 🥜🌱
Yesterday’s delissshh breakfast! Favorite oatmeal (as you guys know well) 🤷🏼♀️ ——————————————————
1/2 C oatmeal
1 C Water 💧
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 banana 🍌
2 tbsp. peanut buttahh 🥜 (any nut butter would work wonders) ——————————————————
Do you guys have a favorite oatmeal recipe?
Would you believe me if I told you that lettuce wraps are actually my favorite way to eat chicken salad? I don't miss the bread one bit. In fact, most of the time there's nothing to write home about when it comes to bought bread, unless it's coming from a local bakery or made in house at a restaurant. I find that after the first week or so of a Whole 30, I don't really miss anything that I'm not allowed to have... dairy might be the only exception from time to time. But when I realize that a lot of my food choices aren't really about the food and more about the comfort, it makes those cravings seem almost obsolete. Like I've mentioned before, there's no need to restrict if you don't have an adverse reaction to a food, but there is something to be said about breaking the connection between difficult emotions and food. And then allowing yourself to indulge in the food you really do crave from time to time, letting yourself really experience and appreciate it.
Quick chicken salad, 4-6 servings:
1 lb roasted chicken, white, dark or both
1/4 c Chosen avocado mayo
1-2 tbsp yellow or spicy mustard
2 tbsp dill relish
1 small onion or shallot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 tbsp fresh dill
1/4 c unsweetened dried cranberries or blueberries
Salt & pepper to taste
Add roasted slivered almonds if you're feeling crazy
