  1. I'm just gonna say that peas and poached eggs (as separate food experiences) are two of life's great pleasures, aren't they? Hope the weather warms up for you soon.
  2. Food journal from 6/1/20: Breakfast: 2 egg scrambled in olive oil, coffee with cashew milk Lunch: Roasted chicken + mashed cauliflower + steamed broccoli with Primal Kitchen teriyaki sauce Dinner: Spaghetti squash + meatballs + spaghetti sauce I actually started my food revolution on 5/30/20, so it's been a few days. Right on time, a mild headache is brewing. It's like my body is crying out for potato chips and M&Ms. Fortunately, before all this happened, I tossed all the primo junk food into the garbage. Yep, I tossed the name brand stuff. The potato chips that cost $4
  3. Thanks Shadow! I have been around this work since the "Whole 9" days — I think I did my first Whole 30 in 2013. I'm excited to be back in 2020. Every time I do a reset like this, I learn something meaningful about myself. And of course, I end up feeling great after changing my diet.
  4. Spent most of yesterday cooking up a storm in preparation for the week. I also wanted to give myself a head start on the official W30. Food journal from 5/31/20: Breakfast: 1 egg cooked in olive oil, cashewmilk "yogurt" Lunch: Spaghetti squash + grassfed meatballs + spaghetti sauce Dinner: Smoothie w/ beets, spinach, ginger, blueberries, banana. I do know smoothies fall into a "please don't" category with W30. I try to make mine veggie-heavy so they don't feel like a big Disneyworld treat. I do not miss the Chips Ahoy at this point.
  5. I'm starting a new Whole 30 after spending most of these few months of self-isolation eating like a 4th grader whose parents are out of town. During self-isolation, I have also done a number on my knee (too much anxiety-walking, I think). Probably just a little patellar tendonitis. The inflammation is pretty bad. I want my knee back. Back away from the Chips Ahoy, Contessa. My sleep has also been kind of dodgy, and I just feel/look more sluggish than I'd like. Grocery shopping yesterday, I was delighted by the number of great products on the shelf that are Whole 30. Thank you, Sir Ke
