Day 44. February 16, 2016.
4:15 AM. Alarm. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. 3 mini frittatas, ground beef hash, half an avocado:
Whole30 Observation: After the way I felt yesterday, I’m feeling a lot better today! Hunger didn’t clobber me and demand all of my attention like it did yesterday. Seems like I may be back to my regular feeding schedule. I hope. I’m still messing with this whole reintroduction business, but my best guess is gluten in not my friend.
11:00 AM. Lunch. Nice garden salad with avocado and a side of tuna. We bought some plantain chips over the weekend so I could have some with my tuna, but I forgot to pack them with my lunch.
2:00 PM. Apple slices and 2 pieces of beef jerky.
4:00 PM. Time for a cup of coffee. Made a double shot with Illy espresso and steamed a little over 4 oz of Silk unsweetened original almond milk to make myself a cappuccino. The first time I tried a latte or cappuccino this way, I thought it was pretty horrible. But now, I really enjoy the “dry bite” (for lack of a better term) of this drink:
I made a fresh batch of Pico de Gallo (Salsa Fresca) this afternoon. I usually make this on Sunday, but the tomatoes we bought were a little on the under ripe side. Delicioso as usual!
6:00 PM. Dinner. Jane made this Moroccan Beef Stew with Butternut Squash served over a bed of cauliflower rice. This dish will definitely be making a return to the table!!!
Whole30 Observation: To repeat myself, after the way I felt yesterday, I was feeling a lot better today! Having a snack/protein in the afternoon kept me on an even keel.
Tomorrow night, Jane and I will be going off-program with my Birthday dinner. Dairy. We will both be having a baked potato with butter and sour cream with our dinners, and cheesecake (home made, but frozen since Day 21, January 24th) for dessert.
9:00 PM. Bed.
Relive my adventure from Day 1.
