Day 38. February 10, 2016. STEP TWO: REINTRODUCTION Day 8
4:15 AM. Alarm. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. 3 mini frittatas filled with bacon, red and Ortega peppers, and topped with Pico de Gallo; ground beef hash and half an avocado. Brewed up some white tea, extra strong, to bring to work. When I say extra strong, I mean I use 3 bags in my travel mug and I let it steep for almost 5 minutes.
11:00 AM. Lunch. Another awesome salad with avocado, and a side of tuna. I have also found some baby spinach and am now digging through to see if there’s any kale hiding in there… Jane does make a killer salad, though!
2:00 PM. Had a nice afternoon snack of carrots and celery while I was out running work errands, so that was pretty cool.
4:00 PM. Ended up back home and decided to make a Caffé Americano. After reading a handful of Whole30 comments on various social media, I have come to the conclusion that most of us (mostly you) don’t like BLACK COFFEE. And, if you don’t like black coffee, then the sounds of a Caffé Americano will probably not sound very appealing. In Whole30 parlance, “It Starts With Food“. In Rick-speak, “It Starts With Good Coffee!!!” So, get yourself some good coffee fer cryin’ out loud!
6:00 PM. Dinner. Cilantro, garlic, lime, lemon and OJ marinated and grilled chicken, Mexican cauliflower rice, and plantain tostadas. Slap a little guacamole and pico de gallo on the tostadas and then load up some chicken, and you have yourself a taco fiesta. ¡Qué sabor!
Whole30 Observation: Again, yesterday was the day I reintroduced dairy. Aside from a little bit of a headache this morning, I don’t think I had any adverse reactions, and I did go a little heavy on the dairy. So it’s stay on program today and tomorrow, observe what I’m feeling, and then on to gluten Friday. yay.
9:00 PM. Designated bedtime. Make it so.
