Logging on for a Whole30: Days 13 - 16

I've gone 16 days without chocolate. Everything I eat tastes sweet. I don't know how I feel about this. Am I going to enjoy the fancy chocolate bar I purchased for day 31 or am I going to recoil in sugary revulsion? Have I said out loud "these carrots are sweet!" so many times that people are plotting my demise? Was eating a banana and sunbutter, & enjoying it, in front of adults enjoying beer a one-way ticket to hell? These are questions only fate can answer, however I'm hoping for a Yes, No, and No - in that order.

This week/end I ate:
Sat.: sweet potato & sausage casserole + pork chop + spaghetti
Sun.: sweet potato & sausage casserole + *see below + pork & sweet potatoes
Mon.: eggs & pork & sweet potatoes + naked homewrecker jr. + leftover spaghetti sauce & eggplant
Tue.: egg foo young + leftover spaghetti sauce & eggplant + pad Thai

Logging on for a Whole30: Day 12

After my 2nd Sunday of cooking, I'm finding that part is kind of relaxing and am looking forward to that part of this weekend. I start thawing meat, turn on Pandora, clean up the kitchen to prepare for the impending disaster-zone, and everyone leaves me alone while I cook for a few hours. I think seeing how beneficial prepared meals are during the week lessens any blow to the amount of time devoted to all that cooking. I hope the past two weeks haven't been some sort of joyous fluke!



Today I'm eating/gonna eat:
Sweet potato casserole + Peter Rabbit Pumpkin, Carrot, and Apple squeeze pack thingy (yes, baby food!)
Egg-vacado salad lettuce wraps + plum
Homemade pizzas! Adult Recipe + kids will just get standard whole wheat crust because Littlest is allergic to nuts (adult recipe crust base), specifically almonds, and I'm not interested in making THREE different pizzas. Two, I can handle.

Logging on for a Whole30: Day 11, my gut is going insane

I ate almost a pound of sauerkraut for lunch today. And boooooy is my stomach using those natural probiotics to clean house! I made Reuben Roll-ups for lunch - slices of corned beef from the deli wrapped around some fancy Boar's Head Sauerkraut and then smothered with homemade paleo Russian dressing. My, oh my it was scrumptious! I was halfway through here and took this to brag to Husband. It worked.

Sweet potato, sausage, & spinach casser-ttata + espresso with coconut milk & pumpkin pie spice
3 Reuben Roll-ups
More Sweet potato casser-ttata for dinner!

Logging on for a Whole30: day 10, 1/3 of the way through!

Today marks my 33% milestone. Day 10 of 30; toot toot! I'm feeling pretty great and properly fueled for my long days, although they are mostly sedentary - what's great is I don't find myself needing a snack quite as soon after lunch, if at all. I haven't been taking any of my medications for 10+ days (really just because I forgot then realized I forgot THEN realized I was just fine anyways). 

Today I ate, or am gonna eat:
1.5 scotch eggs 
1/2 chicken breast + 5 lil meatballs + fauxtatoes
meatloaf + zucchini

Logging on for a Whole30: Days 6 - 9

The weekend came and went without much interest. I had a few "tests" that were either liquid or crunchy triangles. But more importantly, I did well - we tried a new restaurant, I relaxed at the pool without an alcoholic bev, and I doled out a few chocolate chips without popping a few myself :)



This weekend I ate:
Sat.- an omelette with sweet red peppers & onions, and hamburger patty with Wholly Guacamole, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. I ate a late breakfast and actually skipped lunch. 
Sun.- Scrambled eggs, pork carnitas & guacamole from a local place, and chicken for dinner.
Mon.-  Scotch eggs, meatloaf burger patty, chicken breast, mashed fauxtatoes, and eggplant. (SO good!)
