Day 23. January 26, 2016. “Tiger Blood” post 8
4:10 AM. Awake before the alarm by 5 minutes. 2 cups of black coffee. Looks like one week to go on our Whole30 adventure… Last night there was much discussion (again) about re-introduction – which food and when. It’s funny, the more days that go by, the less concerned I am about which food is going to get reintroduced first. The ‘Thought of the Day’ for today is probably dairy. My birthday is next month, and I would like to have a baked potato with butter and sour cream with my dinner. Jane says beer. That’s her answer and she’s sticking to it. Like I said, that’s todays thought. Things will definitely change by day 31 when Jane and I are sitting there going “decisions, decisions…” and she’s cracking a cold one thinking of her next move.
11:00 AM. Lunch. Green salad with chicken and avocado. Chicken and avocado go so well together. Turkey and avocado go well together, too. Anybody notice this, or is this just a western states thing, that whenever you have a salad or burger or whatever, and they add avocado to it, they always call it a California Salad or a California Burger? So yeah, I really enjoyed my California Chicken Salad for lunch, and I really enjoyed my California Frittatas and my California Hash this morning for breakfast.
4:00 PM. Ate my apples, as well as my celery and carrots, while I was running around this afternoon and on my drive home. Pulled a double shot of espresso to sip on after I got back to the house. Good stuff. Also tried some Trader Joe’s coconut cream when I got home. Might try some more later whipped up on some pineapple. It’s good for you, right? It’s Whole30 compliant, right? nom nom nom
5:30 PM. Dinner. Throwing down some “zoodled” spaghetti with meat sauce tonight. Jane made this same dish a few days back, and it’s earned itself an encore performance. It’s funny how we’ve been sneaking zucchini in all over the place – zoodle noodles, Thai salad, Thai chicken meatballs, albondigas, etc.. Check out the delicious spaghetti:
See what I did there?
9:00 PM. I’ll be heading to bed.
