Whole30 -- Day 12

Happy Friday, friends!

I'm going to make this short and sweet so that I can get to that bumpin' party my Netflix watchin'.


Hey look! A new vantage point of the breakfast I eat every. single. day. Today, though, it's a bit different, I guess. I first chopped up an entire sweet potato and sauteed it in a bit of coconut oil. I then added my chopped green pepper, shrooms, and jalapeno to the skillet. When all of that looked pretty much done, I scrambled in two eggs. I topped all of it with -- you guessed it -- Trader Joe's salsa. I meant to add half an avocado as well, but I totally spaced.

Lunch: Oops, no picture. If you want to know what it looked like, flip back to yesterday's post, look at what I had for dinner, and imagine that all thrown together in a cheap Tupperware container. Oh, and add an apple (as a side dish, not in the Tupperware).


This came together in approximately 30 seconds.

Okay, okay, it may have taken more like five minutes to put together and 15 minutes in the oven, but it was still a really fast and easy dinner. I squirted lime juice on a salmon filet, covered it in salt and chili powder, and popped it in the oven for about 12-13 minutes at 400 degrees.

While that was cooking, I steamed a bag of frozen green beans and sauteed some veggies that I had to get rid of: sweet peppers, mushrooms, and spinach.

If anyone has great veggie recipes that you think I'd like, please pass 'em my way! I'm getting a bit veggie-d out (as in I'm sick of Brussels sprouts, one of my favorites).

Physical: As far as nutritionally, I'm feeling good. I have noticed a bit of a difference in digestion, as in when I have to go to the bathroom, I have to go to the bathroom. Sorry for the TMI, but I'm just trying to be as honest as possible.

Unrelated to nutrition, I feel like I could potentially be getting a bit sick. Pretty much everyone I know -- best friend, good friends, student teacher, ex-boyfriend, the hundreds of students I encounter on a daily basis -- has been sick in the past couple of weeks (a lot of bronchitis and stomach flu). I started coughing a bit earlier this morning and noticed quickly that it wasn't just a dry hack but one of those coughs where your lungs are trying to get something out. I haven't been coughing too much, but this evening I can feel something happening in my lungs.

(Re-reading that, it sounds really weird. But, that's the best way I can describe it!)

Emotional: I'm good. I'm tired and ready for the weekend, but I'm good.

Cravings: Not a whole lot really. I kind of miss candy a little bit, though, and when I read a Facebook status about someone eating a piece of leftover birthday cake, I thought, "Hmm, birthday cake is tasty." (I love store-bought birthday cake with buttercream frosting. Nom nom nom.) Again, though, these thoughts last for all of ten seconds before I'm perfectly fine.

I hope you all have a much more exciting night than my Friday night and that you all have a wonderfully relaxing weekend.

Be sure to check in tomorrow for five more of my favorite things and, yes, yet another Whole30 update. :)
