Today, after Mass, we swung by Whole Foods to pick up a few of the weird ingredients that I need for the week:
- Coconut Aminos,
- Red Boat Fish Sauce,
- Avocado Oil Mayo, and
- Sugar-free bacon. That’s right, sugar-free bacon. (It’s bacon, not a stick of gum, Whole30.)
There we were circling the meat department and we just couldn’t find it. I had just sat through an entire Kerbey Lane breakfast watching my kiddos eat bacon as if it were manna from heaven so I really wanted bacon. This forced me to go up to the meat counter and say, “I hate myself for asking this, but do you have sugar-free bacon?” Thankfully, he didn’t make fun of me and showed me right to it. From Pederson Farms if you’re wondering. Hallelujah.
Breakfast : Kerbey Lane – Harvest Omelette without cheese, home fries, and fruit. I love me some eggs and ketchup (don’t judge) but ketchup is a no-go during a Whole30.
Lunch: Zucchini Noodle Bowl – this was strangely good
- Sheet Pan Fajitas over romaine lettuce,
- Mexican Cauliflower Rice (which doesn’t taste like rice but, when you eat it combined with all the other flavors on the plate, tasted pretty decent, which was very surprising)
- 1/2 an avocado
How I felt:
I felt fine today. It is strange to find out that I love eating so much because of all the stuff we can’t have. Like I could have definitely eaten my omelette much quicker had I had ketchup or if it had queso but not having those things really made me slow down my eating. Same thing with the fajitas. I didn’t eat as much as I would have because we couldn’t eat tortillas so I ate slower and got full faster.
Also, I was exhausted by the end of the day.
Kraft is still getting hungry between meals but I’m guessing it’s because he isn’t really drinking coffee which is his usual go-to between meals. He did try it today with coconut milk but it wasn’t his favorite. He did like the milk cold from the fridge as opposed to it warm from the pantry when we opened the can.
