Writing this blog was so much easier when I was counting down the days to my Whole30 being over and it’s easy now when I’ve reintroduced another food. But today, I haven’t reintroduced anything and I don’t have any symptoms and I feel decent enough. I’m tired, but what’s new?
That’s what this blog is for. It’s to document my weight loss journey and my goal to get healthy again. To find a happy place where I still enjoy my favorites but without all the bad stuff. It’s for me to track the foods I eat and see if anything affects me negativevly. It’s for me. So if you’re following me (and haven’t read my intro) and you’re wondering why I babble on about all this stuff, that’s why.
I keep thinking about having a glass of wine and I really wanted one tonight but since I can’t drink wine anymore, I drank some kombucha. I love the gingerade! I put it in a wine glass and sip on it while I’m cooking and it makes me feel normal again. I will probably have a drink or two at our Valentine party next weekend but I have to admit, it makes me nervous to think about doing it. I’m worried about having too much and then eating too much or going totally crazy and undoing all my hard work. I need to marinate on these thoughts.
I had bacon and sauteed apples and pecans for breakfast but this time I had my husband use coconut oil instead of ghee. I thought it would taste good and give me the 2 tbls of coconut oil that the doctor ordered. It did the latter but I wasn’t crazy about the taste. The apples were too tart and it just wasn’t the same. For lunch I had leftover kraut and chicken apple sausage with roasted zucchini. Supper was green beans, sauteed kale and bacon wrapped boneless chicken thighs. I found a great recipe on Pinterest that you sprinkle smoked Paprika and onion powder on the chicken and then wrap in bacon. You’re supposed to pan fry it but we grilled it. I really enjoyed it but I told my husband that next time I will use more paprika so that I can taste it. We will probably also cook as instructed instead of grilling.
That’s it. That’s all I’ve got.
