So I REALLY wanted pancakes today. I had not-so-successfully attempted tigernut pancakes (sans eggs) a few days ago and used way too much ground flax and ended up with some pretty gummy, chewy pancakes. That I scarfed down anyway *shrug*. I thought I would try and see if I could do better this time (and for god’s sake, it was noon by the time I was cooking so I needed to make something). Made these bad boys with a spoonful (JUST A SPOONFUL this time) of the chia seed pudding (chia seeds + coconut milk), tigernut flour, a little filtered water, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and vanilla extract. I think it really needs both a binding and leavening agent (eggs do this beautifully typically). I’m not sure if there’s a compliant way to do this though… and honestly, it still tasted more or less fine. Not something I would make if I was cooking for anyone else, but for me, it was A-OK.
My weekend M.O. seems to be IDGAF pretty much. I essentially just ate my leftovers from last night. Ain’t no thang about it. And they were delicious. I also got extra lazy and didn’t even bother to take a new photo….because it was exactly the same meal. Here it is again for posterity.
So here’s where things got a little tricky. I went on a hike around 4:30 PM and got back around 8ish. Again, STARVING. Was at the point of such low blood sugar that I could feel myself getting a headache and physically feeling faint. Part of this could also be due to the fact that I hauled some ASS on this hike — 9 miles, 900+ calories, 2.5 hours of crushing the trail. That did also completely wipe me out.
On the car ride home, I had a little packet of raw almond butter, my only compliant snack. We picked up dinner at the Window in Venice. Ended up being as compliant as it could be, although I know meat at night is a no-no, and the ratio of meat to veg was off. Was ravenous at this point and barely a human, more like a feral animal that basically just inhaled the food. It’s a miracle I paused long enough to take a picture.
How’d I Do?
Honestly, I ate pretty compliant things today. The ratio may have been off, but all in all, pretty compliant. Could have eaten more veggies, could have planned a little better, and not been a starving animal by the end of the day, but whelp whelp. My first weekend on the cleanse is IN. THE. BOOKS. Made it through Week 1!
