Howdy again folks! I can’t believe that I’ve almost gotten though a week without chocolate! And bread! Oh sweet and soft and squishy and tasty bread. Every day, I’ve been thinking about all the foods I haven’t been able to eat, and then eating something thats better for me as a replacement. Today, I’ve had two navel oranges. And one yesterday. Maybe all those years I spent in Florida are causing me to crave citrus fruits. I’m not complaining. In any case- Douglas came home today! Woohoo! So I will make this episode short and sweet for y’all so I can get back to snuggling.
This morning, was a very monochromatic breakfast. 2 scrambled eggs, 1 navel orange and a mango pineapple Nestle purelife water. Delicious.
I had leftovers today because they were simple and still delicious. Salmon, potatoes and some watermelon. I haven’t had much watermelon this year, because honestly, I haven’t found much that looked appetizing. I hit the jackpot with these slices of awesome. They hit the spot.
Shrimp has been my favorite thing to eat during this Whole30 diet. Something about them tastes so buttery and wonderful. I had some garlic sauteed spinach and then strawberries and pineapples on the side with an iced peppermint tea.
And this heavenly baby is the pizza I made for Douglas for his welcome home meal. Cheese stuffed crust spinach, tomato and goat cheese. No sauce. I even brushed the crust with olive oil and sprinkled extra garlic powder on the sides. Real love is making your partner a pizza full of everything you can’t eat, and not sneaking a piece of cheese. I will admit-I grabbed a piece of his pizza to get a good smell. It was magical. I do miss pizza. Especially one as beautiful as this one.
I am happy I started this journey. I am proving to myself that I can live without sugar and treats and junk food and be ok. Its pretty empowering!!! If I can do it you all can do it!!!
Have a good one y’all,
