How I'm feeling:I'm really feeling great. Lots of energy, my clothes are looser, I am getting lots of compliments about the weight I have lost. I have learned more about cooking in the last 3 weeks than I have in my entire life. Picking what I eat when I do eat out is getting easier and eating like this daily is almost second nature now.
Physically I have had some bloating but I've noticed that was after I eat at a restaurant so I'm guessing there may have been something in the food that wasn't compliant but I don't know for sure. I make sure I ask what they cook the food in and have them remove anything that isn't Whole30 compliant. If they can't then I order a plain salad with oil & vinegar dressing or nothing if they don't have that. I also have a canker sore which I haven't had in a long time so that is something that has concerned me. Not really sure what would have caused that.
What I ate July 13 - 19:
I ate out more than I probably should have this week. I don't want to slip back to my old ways plus eating out on W30 is hard. I really don't trust restaurants when ordering my food. I felt more hungry this week too. I attribute that to eating out and not getting a well rounded meal at the restaurants.
- Spinach Frittata
- Stuffed Bell Pepper and cauliflower rice
This night my daughter decided to jump off our bed onto a pile of pillows. While this sounded like a great idea in her head she didn't account for the floor that was very hard. Missing the pillows and hitting the floor with her mouth she managed to knock a tooth loose. She is only 3.5 and wasn't supposed to be loosing any teeth for a couple more years.... Usually at bed she gets a cup of milk but with her tooth very loose she couldn't drink from her regular cup. I found a sippee cup that she could let the milk drip out of into her mouth and demonstrated this for her (milk and all) without thinking. It was only a few drops as it didn't come out very fast but technically I guess I broke my Whole30 by doing this. No I am not starting over as it was an innocent mistake and I swear it was only a couple drops of milk. Not even enough to swallow, really.
Well after a visit to the dentist the following day we decided the tooth needed to come out. Here is my daughter's beautiful new smile.
