    Didn't kill anyone on Day 5

    I checked for the high oleic before I bought the Safflower oil. (I love having a smart phone handy!) Lesson learned with the EVOO. While I was making it, I wondered just how bad it could be!! I have compliant pickles in the fridge, so I'll have one even though it's kinda late. Those cramps are so strong they wake me up so I can rub my legs and take them for a walkabout. Disturbed sleep is the worst.
  5. Success! This morning I woke up tired but happy. Crazzzzzy!! I happily avoided leg cramps last night, but I think I was close to cramping when I woke up. Maybe I didn't cramp because I ate some sesame seeds on top of a banana earlier in the day! What's your secret to beating those leg cramps? I drank a ton of water today, salted my food, and had a few sesame seeds. No room in my tummy for a banana today. Also, my dream life has been vivid these past two nights, and usually I don't remember my dreams at all. It's pretty fun! I was dragging much of the day today, but I'm tired of my leftovers...... so to pull myself out of the dumps I decided to make Curry Cauliflower Soup for dinner. I found the recipe on Pinterest in the Whole30 folder. Ooooo, that was perfect on this cold night. It's a keeper! Afterwards I made a batch of mayo, and it turned out so good!!! I used Safflower oil since it was on sale, and I had read that it has a very light flavor. Ummmmm, now I understand why people talk about just eating it with a spoon. I might just make my own mayo for the rest of my life!! My mayo history: I did the Whole30 four years ago, and tried making the mayonnaise about four times. I read all the tips and blogs and some people never have a problem, but mine never came out. Two days ago I tried again just to see what would happen, and it emulsified but I had made it with EVOO, and it tasted truly awful.... but I was encouraged since I finally made a halfway successful batch. Reluctantly, because I hate wasting food, I tossed the olive oil batch since I knew I'd never use it. I'm so glad I tried again with safflower oil! Yaaaayy! So glad I didn't get angry at my friends or my favorite grocery store checker today! Time to drag myself to bed here soon. LO

    Day 1 today!

    Hi Tami! I'm on Day 3. I went through the program 3 years ago... it made me think about food differently in a good way. Trying again! Lisa
