I'm super proud of myself, but I also feel a bit funny saying that since it hasn't been all that difficult. Seriously, I have not been dying for ice cream or fro-yo (shockingly), tacos, Sour Patch Kids, or pasta. I have not even been tempted by wine. Who am I?!
It's late. But had I gone to bed at my normal time, I would've missed this:
|(Because I'm sure you haven't seen it yet...)|
Aside from fried eggs instead of scrambled, this looks quite similar to how it normally does, huh? I popped another chicken sausage (Applegate Farms' Chicken and Apple Sausage) in the oven, and while that was baking, I sauteed a sweet potato with a yellow pepper, and a handful of mushrooms. I then fried a couple of eggs and cut up half an avocado and threw it all together.
It was too much, though. So...
...I ate the rest for lunch!
Because I had eaten all of the protein for breakfast, I cooked up some more eggs while I reheated the leftover pepper-mushroom-avocado mixture and then topped it all with a healthy plop of salsa.
This meal never gets old.
I actually ate a snack today, but it was only because I didn't have fruit for lunch. Mid-afternoon, I ate an apple with some macadamia nuts. (I wasn't super hungry, but Whole30 suggests always pairing carbs with protein and fat, so I ate a few and called it good.)
Tonight was yet another new recipe, but unfortunately, it did not photograph well:
Perhaps it's the negative bazillion degree temperatures we've been having, but I was really craving chili. I came across this recipe for Habanero Chili by My Heart Beets and knew this was the one. (I couldn't find habaneros at Trader Joe's, though, so I nixed those and threw in three jalapenos instead.)
While it is one ugly picture, it is one delicious dish.
I also ate some celery as a measly side dish -- and drank a grapefruit La Croix for my "social" drink during the Academy Awards.
Now, though, the last couple awards are winding up, so I am going to sign off and hit the hay as soon as the credits roll. I am wiped.
