    @Mountain Girl the stuffed pepper recipe is from the Whole30 book under fancy pants meals...the tapas recipes. I found it here: http://truefoodmovement.com/whole30-ribs-and-bell-peppers although the instructions vary slightly. Per the book, I roasted the peppers in the oven, peeled the skins, sliced, and filled with the shredded rib meat using a toothpick to hold them together until eating. It would be interesting to try them this way though. Also, I blended the broth before reducing it, so there was no need to pick out onions or anything else. The balsamic reduction is easy...one cup balsamic vinegar simmered on the stovetop until reduced by half. It should stick a bit to your spoon but still drizzle easily. Delicious! @knykytaS and @Alia I had similar dreams too last night! I was also super angry in my dreams, yelling at my family and my boyfriend for abandoning me at a party in Italy where I didn't know anyone. Lol! I guess Kill All the Things days affected me more than I realized!

    Yep, kill all the things. And it's rainy, rainy, rainy here. Staying on track, though. Made stuffed peppers with balsamic reduction last night that were divine. Frittata for breakfast, tuna boats for lunch, l/o for dinner. My main complaint is all the extra dish washing! Crock pot/cast iron/dutch oven...I've used them all this week!

    I am also trying to figure out how to eliminate snacks...although I am super proud of myself that my snacks have been celery and w30 pesto or ranch or a fruit. Staying away from protein bars has been a great shift! They've been my go-to for so long, even though I knew most of them have way too much sugar in them. It feels good to be eating real food. I feel a bit "hungover" this morning, but I honestly can't remember the last time I went this many days without some form of processed sugar. Progress! I am in this to break my bad eating habits, reduce my inflammation levels so that my body can heal some chronic joint pain and a shoulder injury. I'm also hoping to see some positive results in energy and focus, and some minor digestive issues. One challenge so far is that I know I have a very high IgG reaction to any form of eggs. I don't have any immediate noticeable reaction when I eat them, but I know it contributes to inflammation in my body. I decided to just eat them this first week, and then work on alternatives next week so I don't feel overwhelmed. Without eggs, though, its just regular food for breakfast...no "traditional" breakfast food at all. Sigh. Good job getting to Day 3 everyone!
