Meals for day 24, 25, 26, and 27

Holy moley! I have some catching up to do! The blogger app on my phone is acting a bit crazy with my pictures uploads which means I have to email myself the pictures, download them, and then attach them. All these extra steps increase the likelihood that I fall behind. Way behind in this case.
So here it is:

Day 24:
Breakfast:
 Eggs, half an avocado and salsa

Lunch:
It was Friday so I treated myself to Chipotle! Heavenly! In the salad bowl is salad, mild salsa, carnitas AND chicken and a heaping serving of guac. Such a good lunch.

Dinner:

Sadly, I did not take a picture of dinner. After a FABULOUS yoga class, my stomach was loud and ready for some food. I went with my yoga buddy to Ted's Montana Grill and had a hamburger topped with avocado and bacon and a sweet potato.

Day 25: 
Snack: 
Saturday morning workouts don't happen until 9:30 and I don't like to eat before working out, but I am trying to make an effort to get some sort of calories in before morning workouts, esp. if it is a Crossfit workout. So without fruit, the next best thing is carrots and guac. So here is my pre-workout snack.

Breakfast: 
Breakfast after a REALLY hard workout (220 front squats..need I say more). My favorite fuel. Eggs, bacon and sweet potatoes.

Lunch: 

Lunch at Nando Peri's. Grilled chicken breast and side salade drizzled with olive oil.

Dinner:

Another delicious Chipotle salad. Same combination. Salad, mild salsa, chicken and carnitas, with a side of guac.

Day 26: 
Breakfast:
Warning...you are going to see a lot of repeats today. What can I say? Why mess with perfection?! Breakfast- sweet potatoes, bacon, and eggs. To be more specific, there are two eggs in here, with three strips of bacon, and a small sweet potato.

Lunch:
Yup...another trip to Nando's. Grilled chicken breast and side salad with olive oil.

Dinner: 
This bowl of goodness was slowly cooking all day and made my apartment smell delicious! It was a green chile pork stew.  I got the recipe here.

Day 27:
Breakfast:


2 eggs scrambled with chicken sausage and salsa. (Anyone else get weirded out by putting chicken in eggs...it is just weird.)

Mid-morning snack: 
I made these last night and was super excited to dig into them today. I am not really a fan of devil eggs but I am def. a fan of finding new ways to eat eggs. The filling is made with egg yolk, guac, dijon mustard, and paprika. So when I ate these, I wasn't thrilled but they quickly disappeared. And...my stomach was NOT happy. Needless to say, I do not think I will be eating these again anytime soon.

Lunch: 

Left over green chile stew with broccoli. I am trying to sneak in more veggies in all my meals.

Dinner:
I was craving chicken marsala but of course...no wine...no flour...no butter. So I cooked some dark chicken meat, with tomatoes and mushrooms. I let it cook long and slow so the tomatoes got all soupy and delicious and at the last minute I threw in some garlic and basil and put in some frozen cauliflower. It was not the same thing, but just as delicious. I will certainly make this again.  Throwing some hot food on a pile of spinach is another great way to get in more greens!

That is my catch-up! Hope I do a better job this week with posting!
