  1. 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 $4.19 a bag. I wonder what the mark-up is on those chips. It's probably astronomical. Frito-Lay stock may decline sharply in the coming month as a result of my Whole 30.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 Kensington. Thank you, Mark Sisson. I bought four different kinds of sauces and dressings. Boy, this movement has come a long way!
