DIETARY REBOOT – Days 17 and 18

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 17 and 18

Part of the ease in making this Whole30 regime work is keeping sequestered from outside challenges like dining out. Entertaining guests also adds a new dimension to our culinary journey. Old habits resurface, as when Captain François automatically reached for a slice of bread during a recent dinner party. The next few days may or may not be difficult as we welcome guests for the week. We’ll just have to wait and see. On the meal board for today… Breakfast Scrambled…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 15 and 16

What an interesting journey this is turning out to be! It’s challenging me to create meals within certain parameters all the while staving off boredom. It does take a bit of extra work and for sure planning and prepping seems to be the key. Having a willing, enthusiastic and focused partner has kept me on track. So at the half way point of our Whole 3o Challenge on the menu board for today… Breakfast Prosciutto-Wrapped Mini Meatloaves I simply put…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 13 and 14

It’s hard to believe we’ve almost reached the halfway point in our Whole 30 Challenge without cheating. Well not entirely without cheating. We weren’t supposed to weigh ourselves…and we did. aaaand… Captain Francois has shed 8 lbs and I, 4 lbs in just two weeks. This wasn’t about weight loss as much as it was about rebalancing our eating habits but the fact that it has had this much impact on the earth’s force of gravity on our body mass is…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 11 and 12

One of the challenges of this Whole30 adventure so far is finding things like sausage that don’t use grains as a binder. Sure we could choose to give it up for the sake of 30 days but I have a craving for sausage and sauerkraut and apparently cravings is one of those side effects at this stage of the game. Scoring some gluten-free sausage at our local market has allowed me to scratch that itch. On the menu board for…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 7 and 8

“Like Sex With Your Pants On”… tee hee! That’s going to raise a few eyebrows. This is where  Whole 30  and I may not entirely agree. I understand the concept  and if you would like to read about their very amusing analogy you can find the article here. It’s when it comes to making crêpes or pancakes that I disagree, somewhat. Thing is, sometimes we actually do enjoy  no-flour pancakes. I mean really enjoy. And not because we are avoiding flour….

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 5 and 6

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 5 and 6

We just finished up the sixth day of  our Whole 30 Challenge and I’m starting to get a  little tired of eggs. I know they are an easy to use and inexpensive protein but really, how many ways can we eat these before we have had enough? This was our view this frosty morning and all I could think was wouldn’t a bowl of steamy steel-cut oatmeal with a little cream and brown sugar be perfect? But I resisted and…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

Still breathing, still kicking, still haven’t killed each other. According to the Whole 30 timeline we are about to hit the ‘Kill all things‘ phase, so I planned our meals with lots of carb-dense veggies to help offset any carbohydrate withdrawl. On Day 3 though there was a moment when I felt a serious PMS session coming on but without the P or the M. At one point, François said: “Leave it to me to find your one last nerve!”…
