Avocado Chicken Salad on the Whole 30: What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)

We are finishing up Day 15 of the Whole 30! I can’t believe we are half way through!

I admit I did “cheat” with toast while I was sick. No guilt either — eggs on a sick stomach still sounds gross. Today I am feeling 100% though. Thank you all for the sweet tweets and comments on Monday. It meant a lot.

Thanks Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday again! Breakfast for Testing Kids
For breakfast, I had 2 scrambled eggs with organic ghee, bacon, and strawberries. Yum! I had flashbacks of testing week in elementary school when they tell the parents to make sure to feed their kids something really good! Anyone remember those days?

I also had a handful of almonds and 1/2 an apple that isn’t pictured (I got hungry).

The real treat that Izzie was waiting for me to drop was dinner. I found Leah’s Avocado Sonoma Chicken Salad on Pinterest. It called for pecans and avocado — 2 of my favorites — so I had to try it!

Do you remember eating a good meal for testing week in elementary school?

What do you think of the paleo-based diets?

(I am missing my grains and dairy to be honest!)
