Oh and you can’t go out without taking the mandatory bathroom picture 😀

Hi i have been slipping for some time now. I have been eating to much of foods my body does not agree with. Like dairy (mainly cheese), sugar (in sweets, coffiee drinks, icecream etc.), processed food (chips, fries, etc.), even some gluten though extremely small amounts. And my body have been telling me to stop but i have ignored it. Now it is time to stop and get back on track eating in a way my body deserve. And for me to do that i need to challenge myself, i stay on track when i do. It is also a great way to kick start change and creating good habits.
My 30 day challenge will consist of paleo food, vegetarian food and raw food. That’s why i called it a paleoish clean eating challenge. And as always preparing and planning is the key to stay on track. Yesterday on day 1 i ate a delicious smoothie with eggs for breakfast, recipe below. For lunch i met up with a friend and had a salad topped with shrimp, snack was the same as my morning smoothie. For dinner i had salmon with oven baked sweetpotato.
Yummylisious smoothie recipe:
hand full spinach
1 cup blackberry, raspberry, blueberry (i used frozen)
1/2 cup strawberry (used fresh)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 small knob ginger
1 tsp green superfood mix (chlorella, wheatgrass, ginger)
3/4 cup water
Blend and enjoy!!!!! For the part i saved for my afternoon snack i added 1 tbsp chiaseeds so it would be more creamy.

I couldnt recist a small peice. It didn’t have any gluter which was great. I am going to actually try to make that cake Paleo approved later on, because it was soooo super duper delisious.
Hiiiiiiiiiii I am doing great 😀 For the past 2 days tuesday and wednesday I had to take a brake from my Whole30 challenge, I went on a liquid fast to go to the dorctor for a stomach check up. Now I’m back eating solid food again, nice cause I was hungry hahahaha. Everything was good with my stomach YAY. I tend to have digestive issues so I think I need to include more probiotic foods in to my diet to help my gut flora. I will probably start with some natural supplement first. I will do some research and let you know what I find 🙂
On tuesday morning before my liquid fast started I went to the gym. I had more energy then monday so I could actually do the workout properly 😀
