Hi All, I too decided to start the Whole30 on January 1st; but because I live in New Zealand that means I started today!
I’ve had a few health issues over the last two years (first a frozen shoulder, really nasty, and the unexplained joint pains). Most of my life I’ve had issues with eating properly. My bad habits seem to have caught up with me. Time to make a change!
So, I’m a day ahead of the rest of you. It was all going well until my first attempt at mayonnaise. As I “slowly” drizzled oil into the egg mix my brand new blender enthusiastically sprayed a fine fog of mayonnaise out of the hole in the top. Several adjustments later and I had the situation marginally under control. Unfortunately I still managed to add the oil too quickly and the mayo separated. Attempt 2: still messy, but under control. Mayonnaise began to thicken nicely. That was when the blender began to disintegrate. The smoke was my first clue that something was wrong. When I took the top off I was greeted with lovely thick mayonnaise mixed with plastic bits. The highlight of day 2 will be returning the blender carcass to the appliance store.
Hope we you all have a less eventful day 1.
