Tomorrow is the mark of 21 days. 21 days apparently being the ‘you’ve-broken-your-habit’ mark. How do you feel? Do you think you’ve broken the habit? Personally, i think i could use the full 30 days, more even.
At the start of this challenge i was still playing around with substitutions to satisfy my sweet tooth and i didn’t know what i know now about consuming more water when hungry, the role protein and carbohydrates, how to snack, etc. and now i feel applying everything that i have learnt could really drive this to it’s full potential!
Now, now i’m not getting ahead of myself though, i’ll do the 30 days and see how my body feels and what lifestyle choices i’ll make permanent and what i’ll omit. It’s all about reading your body and letting it tell you what you need!
And so now here’s a great quick meal for when you an a couple friends are short on time to cook but want a quality feed!
Avocado Pesto Pasta
1/4 cup Basil
3 cloves Garlic
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 pack of Pasta (linguine, penne, any!)
Salt and Pepper to taste
- Cook the pasta as per the cooking instructions and set aside.
- In a food processor or blender combine garlic, basil and pulse into a mince.
- Add lemon juice, oil, avocado and a tablespoon of water and process until smooth.
- Add additional oil if needed, then salt and pepper to taste.
- Dish the sauce over the pasta and serve! Yum!
Note: This sauce is best served and eaten immediately as the avocado will turn brown as it oxidises. Enjoy!
WHAT I ATE:
Meal 1: Protein Pancakes
Meal 2: Vegemite on Toast
Meal 3: Protein Shake
Total Cups of Water: 15
DID YOU WORKOUT?: YES!
I trained at home with my brothers! All 4 of us in our little gym. It’s really motivating when the people you surround yourself with have the same goals as you. I did circuit training while they trained with weights.
