I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, partly because I love it and its a stress reliever, and partly because the only way to really be successful on this Whole 30 is to be prepared.
Some recipes I have tried and liked lately are:
Spaghetti Squash Crusted Quiche (I used taco meat I had in my freezer and made a double batch of this to have “egg muffins” for quick breakfasts)
Coffee Creamer I have made the Almond Joy and Pumpkin spice. Both are delicious. Going to try the cinnamon streusel next. Yummy.
So although I have truly enjoyed these recipes, I am not going to lie. Today was hard. At around 2:00 I wanted to eat everything in sight. I felt very “snack-ish” when I got home. Then I got crabby. And I’m still crabby. I don’t know if its all part of the process of the challenge, but I’m struggling. I had the first thought of quitting today. I am struggling with the grey areas of the rules. They say limit your fruits and “treats” and I have been eating a lot of apples and drinking a lot of coffee + paleo creamer. Am I going overboard on these? I guess it could be worse, I could be eating lots of snicker bars and drinking pepsi. I am not eating any dairy, legumes, wheat, or processed food, so I will chalk that up for a win.
I do feel like I need to get some type of exercise in tomorrow, might change my attitude toward things.
We are 1/3 of the way through. I know I can do this, I’ve done it before. And I know I’ll feel amazing on the other side.
