It's an amazing site filled to the brim with amazing recipes. We made this one last night, replacing the lentils with a pound of ground pork, less the parmesan b/c we're Whole30 and parmesan isn't allowed...

A couple of days ago I did sweet potatoes and deep-fried them. He flipped for them! Now he wants to spiralize and deep-fry everything.
I fell down on my Down Day today. I am still (sort of) within my calorie range, but I am definitely not abiding by my rotation rules. Since I got my period, I'm not feeling too guilty about it. Sometimes, you must answer your body's call!
Okay, you guys have to stop. I want one. And, all I really need is another kitchen gadget...........
Get one, get one, get one! It is awesome!
Bad news to report: I fell face first into chocolate and nuts on Friday. I blame my period, sneaking up on me like that . Of course, my weight rocketed upwards, and I also have a stuffy nose. This could be from hanging drywall yesterday, but it might also be from too many new ingredients all at once.
I had a 'Recovery Day' yesterday. Neither Up, eating everything I wanted, or Down. Some bratwurst and sauerkraut for a late lunch. Liver, onions, and mushrooms in ghee for a late dinner. And half a banana(dope!) as a late night snack. Shoot! Just as I was typing this I remembered I wanted to stay off bananas for a while. I ate it when I was half asleep, and not thinking. I just needed something to soothe my throat.
Not the best choices.
But not the worst. Onward! I will NOT consider this license to go whole hog, since I fell out of the Virgin elimination protocol. So I had too much sugar, and some soy lecithin. NOT the end of the world. Or maybe even the end of the plan. I might not be reactive to those. (Let the stuffy nose be from drywall. Or maybe I am even coming down with something. Not that I am HOPING to be sick. But I was just thinking last week that it is amazing that I haven't been sick this winter.) I will stick to my Super Bowl plan, and then have regular Down and Up Days next week. I get to have eggs on Tuesday.
The liver was good. Even Littlest ate it up, and said she wouldn't mind having it once per month. I was very careful not to overcook it. Just a minute's sear on each side, then smothered it in sauteed onions and mushrooms. Yum, yum. The dogs were very happy with their portions, too.
the beauty of the UDDD plan, is the ease to jump back in. I think besides your period, you can't discount that little bit of psychology that makes, me at least, overeat as I get very close to a goal weight.

Question on liver. I've seen a few blog posts/pins about making "liver pills" (basically, small bits of liver, frozen, that you swallow). Do you think your body digests that well and is able to fish out the nutrients? I think liver is so healthy, but I basically only like it in store bought pate (or what's that other liver sausage that I can't spell?).
