Whole30 Day 18 recap
Today I woke up feeling a lot more energized than I did in previous days. I credited it to good sleep. When I got up I had a lovely delivery of paleo and whole30 compliant frozen meals from Brian’s Bowls. It was raining out so the bag the bowls were in was a bit soggy but it didn’t get the food! I put the bowls in the freezer and got ready for work. I had my standard breakfast of 2 hard boiled eggs and some greens. Really need to work on spicing things ups bit.
For lunch I came home and heated up The Caveman from Brian’s Bowls. This is one of their top bowls but I never tried it because I didn’t eat red meat up until 6 months ago. Now that I’ve switched to “the dark side” and eat beef I decided to give it a try. It was pretty darn tasty and filling!
I was still pretty worn out from my workouts earlier in the week and decided to take a rest day. And by “rest” I mean make dinner and experiment with a new food creation. I made the paleo mustard chicken from the Practical Paleo book and served it with sweet potatoes. So easy and so good. Plus it makes for plenty of leftovers.
After dinner I decided to get creative and try and make my own almond milk for the first time. I had the almonds soaked and ready to go. I just had to blend them. I chose to use our standard blender over my trusty Magic Bullet because it seemed more sturdy. The almonds blended pretty easily. I used my almond nut milk bag and put it in each individual mason jar while I made the milk. I have to admit, the motion of squeezing the bag to get the milk out scarily reminded me of the concept of milking a cow. Gross! But it was made with almonds so no harm no foul. I gave my almond milk some flavor by adding some cinnamon and nutmeg. I do have to say that it turned out delicious! Can’t wait to try it again.
After the almond milk adventure I was pretty tired so I took some natural calm and headed to bed. The almond milk was a fun science and food experiment can’t wait to try it again.
What about you? Have you ever made your own almond milk? Did you enjoy it? Post in the comments and let me know!
