Day 15, June 15
Congratulate me on sticking it out for 15 days. Halfway done! I’m reaching around and patting myself on the back.
Breakfast: Frittata with beef, peppers, onions, mixed greens. How sumptuous does that look?
Lunch: Late lunch – snack plate of cauliflower fried rice.
Dinner: Large plate of cauliflower fried rice (guilt free!).
Impressions: I was so worried about how my “fried rice” would turn out, but I, hater of cauliflower, made this deliciousness. I used my regular fried rice recipe, save for the Maggi (MSG) and Lion curry (rice flour), which aren’t Whole30 compliant. Without those ingredients, I was super nervous about how my meal would turn out, but This. Stuff. Is. Crack. I can’t walk by it without dipping a large tablespoon into the bowl and stuffing it in my mouth. For the shrimp, I used my go-to, totally compliant shrimp marinade. It’s really for a shrimp scampi, but I use it for everything. I believe in it about as much as I believe in true love. Veggies in it are cauliflower (duh!), green beans, carrots, green pepper and red pepper. The mixed veggies from the freezer aisle aren’t my thing, so everything is hand chopped.
But this isn’t a blog about food!!!!! I woke up quite sore, especially in my neck and lower back. I suppose it’s all that deadlifting. Otherwise, I went to bed late and stood for most of the day in the kitchen preparing my labour of love meals, so I’m exhausted. This part of the program is kinda boring. I’m in a groove with eating the right things, although the temptation is great; I feel good; I mostly have nothing to report. I told the guy at the gym I’d be in at 6am tomorrow. What was I thinking?! Monday isn’t the day for all that tomfoolery.
