    Mmmmm...shepherds pie. Amazing for the first meal of the day. Warm and comforting and filling.

    I decided to give up my evening wine again for a while, I began on Monday. And am already sleeping so much better!  ZZZZZZZ! (and waking up better, needless to say).

    Today I actually took the 2 minutes and added a Post-Workout snack in after my workout/before my Meal 1. it wasn't much, 1 hb egg white and 4 bites of yam, but it was enough. And I feel better for it!

    I loathe baking.  Baking from scratch reaffirms that I cannot stand cake and frosting.  Making one was a horrible experience and one I plan to never, ever repeat.

    Use happy little umbrellas to check for doneness in your foods.   More fun than your usual toothpicks.

    I managed to by-pass the gluten free muffins AND the gluten free beer while in the store to restock on meat, veg and healthy fats.

    After a weekend off-schedule, off-template and with too many off-road ingredients, I decided to get back on for a Whole7 to straighten back out. I went 100% compliant yesterday and feel so much better for it! And now attacking Day 2//7 with gusto.

    This morning's Meal 1, shredded yam and zucchini, leftover chicken, lightly curried with a touch of coconut milk. Who needs eggs??

    I just brought the bag of corn chips from my house to the office and put them in the communal pantry.  I had bought them for an off-road weekend, had a handful, and am done with them so why keep them around?

    Took note of the horrible effects dairy had on me during reintroduction yesterday, so I could learn and make good decisions moving forward.

    came back from my off-roading adventure weekend and went straight into a compliant, template meal. Rinse and repeat this morning and this afternoon. I'm already feeling better!

    When your non-whole30 husband (who absolutely refuses non-traditional breakfast food for breakfast!) says as we are cleaning up dishes from dinner, "I assume we are keeping all these leftover veggies for you to eat with meal 1 tomorrow?"

    I realized I was getting on my scale every morning again (in theory to monitor effects of reintroductions) so put said scale OUT of the bathroom.  I can tell when something is bloating me without getting on that accursed piece of plastic!

    I bottled my first batch yesterday and am on 2nd Fermentation. 3 with Raspberry, 2 with blueberry/ginger and 2 plain. I have a nice sparkle as of bottling and I'm sure I'll be fizzy in 2 days at the longest. Now I just have to remember to burp the bottles and hope I don't get any explosions!
     
    Here's a pic - please excuse my repurposed GT bottles - I left the labels on and put plain in Original, ginger/blueberry in Gingerberry, and raspberry in any of the red color-labeled bottles. I decided I'm too lazy to remove them for now.
     

     
    Added a gallon to my mother vessel to keep it going strong. I can't believe how exciting this is!
