A HALF CUP

Whole30 - the food experiment: DAY 30!!!!!

How do I feel: Accomplished! It's here! My last day of the Whole 30 - funny, it doesn't feel like it's been a whole month in certain respects. On the other hand, someone has a glass of wine and bucket of sugar for me to eat immediately, right?! Just kidding...sort of.

Found this one from this past weekend when Lindsay and I were at Taylor Shellfish. Can you see the excitement on my face?! I *really* love oysters!

Maybe I should have planned for some super interesting, Whole30 approved meals to finish this experiment. I didn't though. Truth be told, I was pretty happy that, by and large, I've been able to just cook and just eat normal things if need be. Today was really no different, except that I noticed I'm short on certain staple ingredients, so my days worth of meals is really an exercise in consuming leftovers and ensuring fresh ingredients don't spoil. In fact, I ate almost the exact same thing today as I did yesterday:

Breakfast:

  • coffee (one cup while getting ready and another for the bus commute to the office), 2 soft boiled eggs, a banana and a pint of water.

Lunch:

  • Salad of baby spinach, diced tomato, half an avocado, chicken and lemon garlic dressing again. Plus tea and water

Dinner: Super random, prepare yourself (I didn't realize I was so short on produce once I got home, but just didn't feel like making a trip to the store)

  • 3 eggs, sweet potato chips, an apple and raw almonds

I know you're all dying to hear and see what the differences are in my before and after stats (how do I know this? Because I've already had a handful of friends ask me on the side, remember, this post is delayed by about a week or so in comparison to real life). BUT, you'll have to wait till tomorrow, because I did all my check in stats on DAY 31, which is when "reintroduction" begins with a glass of wine. Plus, you'll want to see the delicious dinner I made and took to my awesome friend, Bridget, who recently had her ACL repaired and is not-so-mobile.

COME BACK TOMORROW!

Lesson of the day: In the ever-applicable words of Henry Ford, "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're absolutely right!"
