    Day 8 I met a friend for coffee and knitting at Starbucks (my drink was a brewed chai tea...NOT the latte). Our weekly meet day off. I ran out of the house with nothing to eat...and no plan. Not wise. I had to go by Trader Joes for some coconut aminos, nuts (anyone else having trouble finding compliant nuts anywhere else), and Bagel and 21 Seasoning Salute seasoning. I got an apple...a fairly small one...some macadamia nuts and cashews. Figured I could make breakfast out of that. The Starbucks has a Panera right next door, so I stuck my head in to see if they had anything that would work. I was on the way out and the manager asked if everything was okay. I told her I was looking for "just eggs," and she said that they could do that..."It's new!" Awesome! Sign me up...she offered hardboiled or scrambled, and they are served on a bed of greens...not dressed at all! For 1.99. I was thrilled! I'm not sure if the scrambled were compliant so went with the hardboiled...which were out of the fridge cold. I kept thinking of a fried or scrambled egg softening up the greens. Knitted for a couple of hours with my friend...this is major decompression time for me, and then we explored a bookstore. Came home, read for a bit, and started supper...and JUST realized I had no lunch. I made two for now and one for later, so the family gets to pretend it's a with only two things on the menu.

    Today is Day 1 of R3 for me. I last did a round in January of this year. Went great. Major stress hit in February, and I have been off the rails ever since. Weight is up 25 lbs. I am miserable. Inflammation through the roof. Brain fog. Awful sleep. I'm lucky if I get 5 hours a night. You name it. I am using Whole30 as a reset. My plan is to use Food Freedom Forever as the foundation for a plan based on Grain Brain Whole Life Plan and/or Bredesen Protocol. I had eggs with some berries and coffee with coconut milk for breakfast. It's almost noon, and I'm hungry. Going to make a tuna salad with some slices of homegrown tomato on a bed of spinach. And water. Lots of water.
