I’ve been reading more of It Starts With Food. I’m actually done with the part that involves the Whole30 and now into how to reintroduce. I know I will never reintroduce gluten (my body hates it) and I already know what happens when I reintroduce other grains and dairy. I don’t feel I need that part of the book, but I’m reading it anyway. Two things I’m trying to incorporate into my life: eat within an hour of getting up (it’s really hard for me!) and no screen time right before bed. I’m trying to cut off watching tv at 9 and then read before bed.
This morning our Christmas tree was picked up. There’s now what feels like such an empty space where it used to be. I had to go to the dentist, too, to get a cavity filled. So this morning was not the most exciting, but I did manage to eat breakfast soon after I woke up. I ate leftover kale, sweet potato and chorizo hash. I spent all of my late morning/early afternoon doing things in the kitchen and getting laundry done. I eventually stopped to have lunch, which was leftover roasted throw together and rainbow carrots. Oh! And I made ghee!!! I’ve been looking forward to making it for almost a week and I finally did it! I will post a separate entry for how I did it, but it was super easy and is so delicious!
On New Year’s Eve, I told Charlie we could get gluten free pizza and buffalo wings as a little “last meal” before I started my Whole30. We never make wings at home, so we were so excited to order them. Unfortunately, we got glutenized! I felt so crappy the next day, which actually made it easier to start my Whole30 because I was ready to feel awesome again. Anyway, I was telling you that to let you know I planned buffalo wings tonight to make up for our crappy ordering in experience. I don’t think we’ll ever need to order wings again! They were so delicious and the flavors were spot on! I had a side of eggplant chips (which turned out kind of soggy but were still delicious) and Charlie had potato chips. All was served with a side of parsley garlic aioli. A-ma-zing!
