Advocare 24 Day Challenge – Day 16

Ok, back to reality after a crazy fun, fat weekend!

I started the day with my last Fruit Punch Spark. I hope my next order gets here soon! Spark is one of my favorite things about the Advocare Challenge.

Breakfast is the meal replacement shake. So good.

No morning snack needed.

Lunch was a modified nicoise salad. Modified because I was too lazy to clean a bed of lettuce and I decided to just dress it with a squeeze of lemon juice and nothing else. Left over roasted rosemary potatoes, grape tomatoes, steamed green beans and tuna fish. Yummy. Filling. Check and check.

Afternoon snack was an apple with cheddar slices.

Dinner was great! Are you familiar with Clean Food Crush? I just found the site while looking for healthy recipes on Pinterest. Yummy! Tonight we had Orange Chicken Stir-fry with Asparagus over brown rice. Soooooo good. We will definitely have this again. I love stir-fried asparagus! It is so bright and crispy. Lil man J ate it up. I love it when that happens!

Confession: Maybe it is my Whole30 and Paleo training but brown rice is not my stomach’s friend. This makes me so sad. Honestly, I can have the occasional Jimmy John’s sandwich with less discomfort than I get from brown rice. I was hoping that this would be a nice addition to a clean eating lifestyle but every time I eat it my stomach gets puffy. Emotionally, I’m not sure I’m ready to give this up. Is white rice really that much worse than brown rice?
