Phew, Day 1 was a breeze so how about Day 2? Well, I’d say it’ll be a challenge since I had a potluck gathering with my relatives for dinner. But as a super organized person, I already planned the dishes that I’d bring to the potluck. Before we get there let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
I had another amazing morning workout despite the hot and humid weather. In fact today was the first time I ran as my warm up prior Bodyrock.tv workout. Truth to be told, I am not a big fan of running and I know I’m suck at it. However, this morning, to my surprise, I was able to run in moderate pace without catching my breath for the entire 1 mile trip, which took me about 9:14. Not too shabby huh, despite I haven’t run for ages!
Afterward, I was a cooking mania, preparing at least 3 dishes to bring tonight. After doing some thinking couple days ago, I decided to pick 3 of my simplest and fool proof recipes.
First: The famous Roasted Curried Cauliflower (God, I owe this BIG TIME to Nom Nom Paleo!!) I used 2 big cauliflower heads!
Second: Baked Chicken Legs Seasoned with Chipotle “Curry” Chives Seasonings
And additionally, I also made batches of Coconut Chips as my emergency snacks, in case I got hungry later. (2x of this container)
While in between, I also squeezed in some time to prepare lunch. I wasn’t in a mood of cooking separate veggie and meat dish, so I decided to do Beef Stir Fry Veggie Noodles – yay for protein and fiber in one pot! No extra pans to wash!
I finished preparing the potluck dish by mid afternoon, which was great so I had some extra time to clean up and put away the clean dishes. I hate seeing dishes piling up on the counter cause they just make the entire place look cluttered! Ugh! Afterward, Brother A, Hubby K and I got ready and went to my cousin’s place for the potluck.
All the dishes pretty much are cooked with vegetable oil which already make them out of Whole30. Glad I brought 3 dishes that I could eat :D.
And there were some tortilla chips (didn’t have any) with Pace Picante Mild Salsa sauce, which I had a bit as my salad dressing for my second plate (only a little bit). I was a bit full from snacking that coconut chips prior dinner.
I also had a small bowl of Chinese herb soup (no pic) after examining them, I’d say they’re OK for Whole30.
Cousin Dv, his wife, my niece (my other cousin’s daughter) and Brother A were having a lot of fun playing Xbox Kinect. Hubby K and I were mostly watching until towards the end we got a bit pressured to play a bit. I could tell you, I’m suck in those dancing game.
One of my aunt made these chiffon cakes and gave us 2 huge chunks to bring home. ARGH! Temptation! Although I generally don’t have sweet tooth, homemade goods are pretty tempting. Worry not, I didn’t have any bite and won’t for the rest of July.
Came back home I felt like munching so I literally finished one container of coconut chips.
So there you go, my Whole30 Day 2 : not so bad 🙂
