I did it! I finished Whole 30 without cheating! I lost a few pounds and I feel great. I know we’ve been talking about Whole30 a lot lately, but its been my life for the past month. On to my next challenge! Some ladies at my daughters school have invited me to join in a “Game On” challenge. Have any of you heard of this? It was new to me. But, I’m going to give it a shot! I figure if I can do whole30, I can do Game On, right?
So the crux of it is to make a lifestyle change. You get points for certain things, like water consumption, exercise, and healthy eating. The group will split into two teams, and we’ll go head to head. Ha, sounds fun! My two favorite parts are the “rest or cheat” days and the habit rule. You get 1 day a week to cheat and then you also have to dedicate yourself to give up one bad habit and gain one good one over the 6 week program. It should be an interesting 6 weeks. The diet is completely different than whole 30…only lean meats..that means no bacon! It all seems pretty complicated, but I’m all in….let’s do this!
In honor of my soon to start “Game On” challenge and recently completely Whole 30, I decided to make this delicious bacon avocado egg salad this morning. I need to use up my remaining whole 30 bacon AND get my fill before our Game On starts. This recipe got me through my whole 30…it was a life saver for breakfast and lunch when I didn’t want to see another scrambled or fried egg. I can honestly say that I it better than traditional egg salad. Just a few simple ingredients and you’re done!
3 hardboiled eggs
4 strips of bacon, cooked crispy
juice from 1 lime
- Rough chop the hard boiled eggs.
- Add the avocado and egg to a bowl. Use the back of a fork to mash the avocado.
- Chop the bacon, add half to the egg mixture.
- Season with cumin, salt and pepper.
- Add the lime juice, and stir to combine.
- Serve and top with remaining bacon.
