    Anxiety & Dairy

    OMG me too, wine anxiety is horrific!! Here I was, thinking a glass or 2 of wine would relax me and help me sleep, when it was the wine causing the anxiety in the first place. I sleep like the dead on W30!

    Looking for a substitute for melted cheese as a “glue”.

    Tahini, if it goes with the other flavours, is a good binder. Egg is also good.

    Reintroduction

    I'd definitely go back to 100% compliant until you feel fine again, with no lingering effects, and then stay that way for at least a few days before trying a new reinto item.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    I think yesterday was the first time this round that the meal 3 I posted in the AM was exactly what I ate, lol. Meal 1: Eggs n kraut Meal 2: Pork roast with BBQ sauce and roasted veggies Meal 3: Pork steaks with spicy apple sauce, braised broccolini and carrots in ghee and sesame seeds, Sauteed garlic mushrooms.

    Market attended, I have some lovely salmon. Meal 1 ended up being coconut/almond yogurt spicy chicken with cauli/brocc rice and green beans because I forgot it was in the work fridge from last week and it needed eating.

    Anyone else hate sweet potatoes now?

    Yup! So crispy! Or you can make them into fat fries, toss them in olive or avocado oil and seasoning and bake.

    Celeriac is the love of my life! It makes such good chips, too. You're right - it's pretty ugly LOL but so delicious and versatile!

    Happy Tuesday! Slightly less miserable than yesterday. Today is fish Tuesday, so I'm off to the markets at lunch. I'm feeling very achey today, which is annoying. Meal 1: Eggs n kraut Meal 2: Pork roast with BBQ sauce and roasted veggies Meal 3: Fish (probably salmon) with fennel pepita pesto, blanched beans and broccoli (I finally got my blanching down and now I'm obsessed) with flaked almonds and apple cider mustard vinigrette, sweet potato chips.

    Try other root vegetables. I use turnips, swedes, celeriac, pumpkin, parnsips etc in addition to sweet potato and regular potato. they all roast and mash well.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    Things got away from me, so dinner is blanched green beans and broccoli in an apple cider mustard vinigrette with flaked almonds and 2 poached eggs.

    Shrimp

    Unless it appears on the 'ingredients' list, it remains a 'may contain' like you might see as an allergen warning, and will be compliant.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    I'd love to have the company and a chat while I food prep! I don't usually have fennel lol, I bought it for the salad and totally over estimated how much I needed and it seemed a waste to throw away those lovely fronds! Monday again. I swear Mondays take up far more than 1/7 of my week. Weekend was average, I was super cranky, partly because of hormones, apparently and partly because... ugh, just stuff. Meal 1: Eggs 'n' kraut Meal 2: pork roast with BBQ sauce and roasted veggies Meal 3: Hell if I know. Possibly pork steaks and veg of some description. Supposed to run today. Forgot my damn workout gear. So I'll go for a brisk walk instead.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    Thank you!! I love to cook, so much. Today was a bit out of control, so meal 1 was leftover lemon chicken and cauli rice with carrots, and dinner will be Salisbury steak with mushroom sauce, mashed turnip, broccoli and carrots. Just meal prepped BBQ pork roast and a huge lot of roasted veg medley (parsnip, celeriac, mushrooms, radish, broccoli, okra, beans, fennel) for lunches. Also, I had all the fennel tops and didn't want to waste them, so I made fennel and pepita pesto - it's lovely and very different. Whinge here, lady-wise so if you're delicate about that sort of thing, look away now. So I have a Mirena, and haven't had a period for 5 years. Glorious. After 2 days of homicidal rage, I got it today. UGH!! I hate this lol. Explains the rage. BUT, last 2 times I did W30 I got spotting then, too. WTF is with this way of eating that makes my body override my birth control LOL?? Might also explain why I feel like a bloated whale.

    BBQ was good, I took some lamb steaks marinated in rosemary, lemon zest, garlic and pepper, and a really nice salad of roasted fennel, green beans, romaine, and a caper, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice and S&P dressing. The host made a potato salad which was just olive oil, mustard and fresh herbs, so I had some of that and took a bottle of mineral water. Was lovely to catch up with friends! Dinner, when I can be bothered, will be crispy skinned chicken with the leftover salad,and other a-yet unidentified veg. Rocking headache today, and viciously cranky. I think I have cranking PMS.

    We love it! Super lean. It's very similar to venison. Saturday! We have a BBQ to go to today, but it's pretty much BYO so I'll just take some chicken skewers and a salad to share. Meal 1 was fried eggs, jamon and grilled field mushrooms.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    Dinner was seared kangaroo steak with chimmichurri, mashed sweet potato with African vanilla salt, grilled garlic mushrooms and sauteed asparagus with toasted macadamias. It was delicious! It's another Friday night, and I'm again resisting wine. It's actually quite easy, it's a habit, not a craving. I'm just used to pouring a glass on a Friday night. Off to buy new runners tomorrow, going to keep up with the C25k and go back to muay thai classes week after next.

    ARRIGHT. I did Day 3, Week 1 of C25k. Crankiness, angry uterus, and humidity be damned. Its funny, I dragged ass the first for runs but when by the end it was a lot easier, like I'd finally warmed up. But then it was over LOL. Ah well. My aim is to run a 5k charity fun run that's happening at the end of May. I think that's a pretty good and do-able goal. Still no decision on dinner. Less cranky, though. Might trawl some recipe pages.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    @Amy_Michigan that's what I figure! I made the best choices I could at the time, and eating out will never be without doubts. I have leftover Lebanese Lemon Chicken for lunch and I'm already looking forward to it. So good!! I'm planning on Day 3 of C25k today, we shall see how that goes - it is humid and warm today, and I had a terrible night's sleep ( husband) so I'm cranky as hell. But I said I'd do it, and I'm going to. I need new running shoes, might have to go to DFO this weekend for a bit of a shop. My old ones are wearing out at the heels and starting to rub. Meal 1: Eggs n Kraut Meal 2: Lebanese Lemon Chicken, seasoned cauli rice, asparagus Meal 3: Ehhhhh... I'm torn between "It's Friday and I want to make something fancy" and "It's Friday and I CBF so what's fast and easy".

    OH, I lied - the Lebanese Lemon Chicken is A Calculated Whisk, not PRM! http://acalculatedwhisk.com/lebanese-lemon-chicken/?fbclid=IwAR2kWnPYuyBPNc3mNj4KFpIf1bVj573EN4oW001lNyU_3VlaFC-K6X7UHFI

    Thanks Emma! I feel pretty good about my choices today! I love to cook. If I could make decent money from it (without having to work for someone else) I'd give up law in a heart beat! Dinner was amazing, paleo running momma's Lebanese Lemon Chicken is delicious and so easy! I served it with cauli rice sauteed with fresh basil and parsley, lemon zest and sumac, and with carrots with ghee and sesame seeds, and baby asparagus. Very much a guest pleaser!

    I meant to add - I've been researching paleo so I can transition to it, as it seems to suit me the most, and while lunch may have not been compliant, I'm confident it was at least paleo - it was definitely grain, dairy, legume and alcohol free. Just not sure on the sugar.

    Guess who's back? Round 3 Day 1 on 28 January

    OK, so best intentions are worth as much as they're written on. Lunch was at my favourite restaurant, so I just did the best I could, noting that I am in this for long term changes rather than a perfect 3rd round. Skipped meal 1. Lunch was a tapas of kingfish with almond, roasted capsicum and pickled cucumber on a sesame seaweed base (pretty sure this was not compliant), mixed leaf salad with pickled garlic, radish and capers in a chardonnay vinegar dressing (pretty sure this was compliant), and chicken breast in a mojo picante sauce (every recipe I look up for this sauce appears to be compliant, but the chicken was probably brined and so not sure of compliance). It was absolutely delicious, and if there was non-compliance it would be minimal. If I was doing a 'proper' round, I would restart tomorrow, but as this is just me muddling along and trying to take this on as a lifestyle (and because there's no point in restaring because weekend away in 2 weeks will bugger it up anyway), I'll just keep trucking. Noted: I'm not bloated or uncomfortable, so that's good. AND, here's the big thing, I am NOT going to let this convince me I have "fallen off the wagon" and lead to more non-compliance.

    WHOLE30 is amazing and Imitation crab is evil

    I have to admit, I haven't ever looked into what's in imitation crab, but I figured it couldn't be the best! Sorry it took it out on your belly!
