Highlight: still mayonnaise. Lowlight: super busy day. Emma and I bought new clothes for her and sister. I guess that’s back-to-school shopping…although they haven’t had a break from school.
Anyway, switching out closets took all day and I didn’t have much of a food plan, so I ate whatever I could scrounge. So, mayonnaise. But the girls no longer look like ragamuffins, so it’s all good.
Highlight: dinner! I threw some stuff together because I only had to feed myself. And it might have been the best thing I’ve ever stumbled upon. Ghee-fried potatoes underneath grassfed ground beef with fresh cilantro, red onion, and tomatoes. The cilantro played really well with the richness of the ghee. Damn delicious.
Lowlight: lunch sucked (sad salad from chilis). I knew it would so I tried to have a hearty breakfast, but I ended up overcompensating with cashews (two more handfuls than you see here).
I also solidified today that the food I turn to when stressed (because I’m totally a stress eater) is sweets and alcohol. I was SERIOUSLY jonesing for a dozen donuts and a bottle of red wine today. Rayo, thank you for talking me down.
I do need to figure out how to deal with those triggers when I don’t have the rules of Whole30 to fall back on. I know that this is why my diet was wrecked years ago.
Highlight: HEB does a pretty decent lactofermented kraut.
Also, Topo Chico with lime was a nice change up.
Lowlight: I‘m definitely feeling a little of the food boredom that’s common at this point in the Whole30. It’s why I’m trying to add one or two surprising/different/interesting things to the rotation. Like lactofermented kraut.
And I snacked a lot today. Stress not alleviated, maybe?
Highlight: I feel kind of settled in with this whole30. I’m not constantly worried about what I’m going to eat. I know what’s been filling me up and what works as a go-to meal. That feels good.
Lowlight: I made Tator tots for the non-whole30 people in the house. Man. It took a lot to stay away from those. More than I thought it would.
Also, my big ol’ salad bowl is empty. Can someone chop all those veggies for me? Meh, I’ll do it tomorrow.
Highlight: breakfast dinner salad? It didn’t make me mad.
Lowlight: I should have prepped my big bowl of salad yesterday. I had nothing ready to eat and today was MUCH busier than I expected it to be. You don’t see a handful of almonds. But, it wasn’t really the best food day.
Forgot to take the roast out to defrost. So dinner didn’t do me any favors.
Planning people. It’s all in the planning.
