Day 24. January 27, 2016. “Tiger Blood” post 9
4:15 AM. Awakened by the smooth jams of the alarm clock. That, is, of course, if you’re into B flat quarter notes at 50 bpm. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast of 3 mini frittatas with prosciutto, covered in salsa fresca, ground beef hash, and 1/2 an avocado. The Whole30 mission continues! Another go-cup of green tea for the drive to work.
11:00 AM. Time for some lunch. Had a nice green salad with 1/2 an avocado, and a side of tuna. Jane put the tuna together with some home made avocado mayo and it was delicious! We got the tuna from Costco, but unfortunately I can’t find a link to Kirkland Chunk Light Skipjack Tuna In Water. Maybe it’s an in-store and not an online thing. I did stumble across a nice (sort of) “pat on the back” given to Costco from Greenpeace, so I found that kind of encouraging.

4:00 PM. I happily crunched my way through my apples on the drive home. I was almost as happy about the apples as I was because there wasn’t any traffic or accidents on the freeway! Got back to the house and made a caffé Americano for myself:
I ground (grinded?) Starbucks espresso roast whole beans for this, and it was pretty darn good. So my caffé Americano is a double shot of espresso plus 12 oz. of 175 +/- degree F (80C) water. I got a great kettle for Christmas – It’s a KitchenAid electric kettle that you can specify and hold temperatures, so it’s not just boil or off. Thing works like a champ!
6:00 PM. Dinner. Carnitas, plantain tostadas, and Mexican-style cauliflower rice. Gotta throw some Pico de Gallo in for good measure. This was yet another really good meal. Jane can cook! Olé!!!
“Tiger Blood” – I will admit that again, I haven’t been ‘hitting the wall’ or doing the crash and burn every day at 2:00 PM, or wanting to ‘just shut my eyes for a minute’ when I get home. I’ll also say that I have been getting a good night’s sleep every night, as well as falling asleep faster. Speaking of which—
9:00 PM. Bed is on the agenda. Hasta Mañana.
