JERF Week 3 Update

Checking in with you guys for week 3 of the JERF Challenge…

Breakfast
Breakfasts have been quite similar again this week.  Dairy-Free Bullet Proof Coffee (see week 1 update for recipe) is usually my go-to during the work week.

I also made a breakfast scramble with eggs/egg whites, ground beef, peppers, spinach, avocado and salsa.

I’ve been running again on Sundays and like to have a bit more carbs beforehand.  The best thing for my stomach is a slice of Silver Hills Mack’s Flax bread with melted peanut butter and coconut butter, a few dates and Vega Sport Energizer (I know, not totally JERF – but I like the energy boost!)

Lunch/Dinner

I baked some salmon to have for a few meals with roasted cauliflower steaks and turnip.

BBQ’d pork loin chops with cauliflower and zoodles.

Pizza night on Friday!  I broke my gluten-free rule and had pita pizzas on Food for Life Ezekiel pitas with prosciutto, veggies and vegan cashew cheese.

BBQ’d chicken thighs with grilled peppers and roasted broccoli.

Lettuce wrap burgers with turnip fries.

Ground beef sauteed with kale, onion, broccoli and avocado.

I had quite a variety this week!

Snacks

Again, I had flaxseed muffins with melted peanut butter and coconut butter before my workouts.

On the weekend I had some stove-top organic popcorn with REAL butter.

I made some amazing Peanut Butter Cups that I posted last week for Valentine’s Day.

How I’m Feeling

Week 3 was awesome.  As for weight loss, I was pretty steady with 1/2 lb down. I was madly craving some red wine! It seems like that is all I see on TV…wine, wine everywhere!

Even though I’m not a huge football fan, I did watch the Super Bowl last Sunday and it felt kind of weird not to have a drink in my hand and chowing down on snacks, but I restrained and made lettuce wrap burgers instead 😉

Yes, I did have some gluten.  If I do have bread, I stick to companies that I know use real ingredients and sprouted grains which are easier to digest.  I am a big fan of Silver Hills and Food for Life.

How has your week been? I’d love to hear what JERF foods you are eating!

Be sure to check back in to see how things went in week four!
