Started a Whole30 today! My plan was to start on Wednesday (May 1st), but Jenn is starting today so I decided to start with her . Wednesday will be a minor challenge as I'll be spending the whole day in an amusement park with 5 10 y.o. girls. Minor challenge because there's hardly anything primal to eat in the whole park anyway, so I'll just make sure to bring my own lunch and snacks as usual. No chocolate though . I'm really happy TOM came 2 days early (Wednesday had to be the first day), so at least that won't be bothering me too much. So, first day is today and I haven't needed a painkiller yet. Vitex rules .
I made meatmuffins and egg muffins (with raw ham, bacon, chorizo, carrots, yellow bell peppers and onions) yesterday; had 3 egg muffins and a handful of strawberries as breakfast; I had a banana mid morning and lunch is meatmuffins, leftover oven-roasted parsnips, sweet potato and red beets and 1/2 avocado. Handful of mixed nuts as snack. Dinner will be oven-roasted fennel and salmon.
I've bought several kinds of herb teas that I can drink without feeling the need to add honey: anise, mint/licorice, mint/cinnamon,... I'm trying to reduce my coffee intake, want to limit it to 2 cups/day: 1 with breakfast and 1 after lunch. So I'll be drinking my water kefir (2 glasses/day), plain water and herb teas.
Oh, I've bought such nice minimalist shoes: Zest Glove - Women's - J57420 | Merrell ; they look like ballerina's so I can wear them to work. Couldn't do that with my vibrams. I'm wearing them to work today and I'm loving it!
