Day 18

I didn't feel like bringing the leftover pork chops for lunch today, it seemed too heavy and I feel like we've had a lot of heavy meals lately. We had a little bit of tuna salad leftover so I brought that with a tomato and a big piece of lettuce to wrap it in. Should be good!  Dinner tonight is one of Jon's favorites that we did last time on Whole30: burgers and fries. With some modifications of course. No bun, no cheese and no deep-fried fries, they are baked instead. But still pretty awesome. And we bought more of the Tessemae's ketchup which has a much tangier taste that regular ketchup but it does the job of tricking your mind.

I made a chocolate shake after dinner that was AWESOME!  So much so that I forgot to take a picture of it. It was made with 1 banana, about 1/4 cup fat free coconut milk, about 2 tbsp of unsweetened coconut flakes, and some raw 100% cacao powder.  I modeled it after this recipe but didn't freeze the banana, didn't use the gelatin protein, used less coconut milk and also added some unsweetened coconut flakes to give it more of a coconut flavor. I didn't want to taste the banana as much and wanted to taste more of the chocolate and coconut flavors.  A little bit goes a long way with the cacao powder so I did about 1-2 teaspoons worth and it had plenty of chocolaty taste!  Mix that up in the Bullet and then add a bunch of ice to make it cold and give it that milkshake consistency. It was an awesome healthy indulgence after going to bootcamp 4 days in a row! If I can find some paleo-friendly protein powder this would make a great post-workout shake.
