missing chocolate milk.

so, if you're wondering-i DID resist the temptation to dig into those treats at work yesterday. go me! yesterdays lunch was brought in by the great dane, a local bar & grill in the madison area. a coworker of mine was collecting donations for united cerebral palsy and if you donated you got lunch! i chose the webster street chicken salad and it was delicious!
seriously my photos dont do this salad justice. i am currently using my phone to snap my food photos-ill work my way up to the fancy stuff later! but this salad consisted of mixed greens, roasted chicken, granny smith apples, sun-dried cranberries, walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, and a side of honey citrus dressing.
i picked off the chesse (tear) and tomatoes (ick!) and dipped my fork in the dressing rather than poring it all over the salad.
paleo experts: can you tell me if this dressing is ok? since it was from a restaurant i dont know exactly what was in it. im thinking i may need to take a point away for that one!

after work i hit up my crossfit gym for an intense workout, rushed home to shower, and then off to job #2 for the day. bartending. now, its times like this when i really start missing my chocolate milk and protein shakes! that was how i recovered after a was quick and tasty! but thats a no-go for paleo.

i have a feeling we're going to be good friends through this challenge:
beef jerky!
any suggestions on quick, paleo, go-to recovery foods would be great!

once i got to the bar, it was packed. typically there are horseshoe leagues on wednesday nights, but with this wild weather horseshoes was cancelled and everyone thought it would be a good idea to come to the bar for food and drinks! i was slammed. losing energy fast after that intense workout and hardly any food. i had intended on throwing something on the grill as soon as i got there because, well, i can! not the case last night.
eventually i caught up, for about 5 minutes, threw a nice big burger on the grill with some mushrooms for myself. it only took me about an hour to eat it because i of course, got busy again. so, sorry to say, no pictures of that meal!

breakfast this morning was more scrambled egg whites with peppers, onions and mushrooms. some raspberries and unsweetened chocolate almond milk. doesnt quite compare to chocolate milk...but i guess it will do.

have a great day and i will be back hopefully this evening with more!
i have a fun weekend ahead of me that i should start preparing for!
